“Teeny tiny "bedroom" was barely enough space to put my shoes on”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Nice looking hotel with a great complimentary coffee station. Our room was so teeny tiny that my husband and I had to take turns getting by the bed to get to the bathroom. I read that the rooms are small but was not aware that they were less than 125sq feet. Nicely decorated hotel, new, and clean but very claustrophobic rooms.

They answered to all my expectations and more.
Room, bed and shower are high quality and confortable.
People are extremely sympathic, I will come back asap.

Price is accurate due to the fact good expressos, bottles of waters and orange tropicana juices are free!

I've stayed at Hotel Veritas twice now, and just booked my third return trip. It's becoming my go-to in the Cambridge/Boston area. The rooms are indeed small, but they're gorgeously appointed and very comfortable, and as a business traveler, space is not my biggest concern. The staff is top-notch - very accommodating and friendly on the phone and in person.

Favorite touches: beautiful and cozy lobby (always playing my favorite tunes, too); complimentary wifi; complimentary coffee/espresso, juices, water; and delicious wines for purchase - always have a nightcap while there. I also love that it's so close to Harvard Square and there is easy access to the Charles River for my runs.

My only complaints, both of which I can live with: the scent of the bath products is fairly masculine (I try to leave my shampoo, etc. at home) and there is some street noise - but pack a set of earplugs and you're all set there.

We'd stay here again. Great location, close to Harvard campus and Harvard Square. Refreshments were a nice touch in the lobby (both hot and cold choices and good herbal tea) and the front staff was most professional and helpful--even offered to put our bags in the car since it was parked valet and we wanted to stay in the area a bit though we had checked out. The room was small--even though we had a Queen (not the Petit Queen)--and clean. As we mainly needed a nice, clean close place and weren't intending to spend a lot of time there, it was fine. There were no bathroom/shower fan which would be a nice improvement to the hotel.

Beautifully decorated, high quality, friendly staff, comfortable bed, but please be aware that it is bang on the street so the noise in mornings can wake you earlier. Other than that, highly impressed. If this doesn't bother you, this is a great find and has a good location close to Harvard Square.

Rooms are truly small but that didn't bother me.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms that are on the street

I stayed here while attending a seminar on the Harvard campus. The hotel is lovely -- clean, beautiful decor. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the complimentary refreshments in the lobby were a very nice touch. I would absolutely stay here again.

This hotel is in the perfect location if you want convenience to Harvard University's central campus. The staff are wonderful. The rooms are VERY small and you can hear street noise. We loved the free bottled water and soft drinks in the lobby. There is a business room with two computers for guest's use, but one of the computers has been broken on each of my three stays.
It is very expensive for the size of the room.
