“Perfect place to see Harvard”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We came across this hotel by chance and how lucky we did. It was amazing! The staff were very friendly and helpful, the location was perfect and the rooms were stylish and comfortable. We opted for the petite room and it was small but big enough for a hotel stay. The bathroom was fantastic, very spacious and seemed brand new. Another great feature of this hotel was the complementary Nespresso coffee, tea and cold beverages. There is a business center and few wifi which is good. It is walking distance to Harvard square and different eateries. I would highly recommend Hotel Veritas.

Yes, the rooms are on the small side, but they are perfectly comfortable; they have a great space in the lobby to hang out, enjoy their coffee or wine and spirits. They have a nice patio, weather permitting. And it's a fabulous location: away from the bustle of Harvard Sq, but just a few minutes walk. There's a great tea, yoga, gym (brilliant idea!) across the street: Karma. Right next to Harvard Yard; close to the river, good walk to Central Sq.
The staff are great. I always try and stay here whenever I go to Boston/Cambridge

Room Tip: Room on the front may get early morning noise from trash collection across the street.

Hotel Veritas is a fashionable little boutique hotel conveniently located to Harvard and the Harvard train station. The decorating is chic and tasteful and the room are quite comfortable. The petite proportions of the hotel make it seem luxurious and cozy! The staff, such as concierge Brandon, from Boston, are extremely helpful and generous with dispensing information. The pricing really is quite amazing considering the oasis it provides after a busy day! Highly recommend……

Room Tip: Pay a bit extra for the extra 5 square feet in the smaller rooms.

We stayed for two nights in July, 2014. Can't say too much about this place, lovely clean rooms (202 had a wonderful deck off of it), nice neutral upscale decor, but the staff are what makes this place special. Not your typical hotel staff, but warm, helpful people who go the extra mile to assist you. We definitely recommend and will return when next in Cambridge.

Room Tip: 202 was on the quieter side and had a balcony. Parking is expensive but Sunday' it is free to pa...

I am not one to really write reviews but i just had to for this Hotel. i have traveled to many places but the amount of excellent customer service i received at this hotel was just amazing! the concierge upgraded my room instantly, they have coffee, espresso, sodas, orange juice, water all at your disposal. the hotel is beautiful and clean! i also asked them for toothpaste and they didn't have any and sent someone to the local CVS Pharm to get some. I had no idea they had to send someone out but i thought that was amazing. Never had service like that in quite some time so it was such a breath of fresh air. yes the rooms are small but they are extremely nice! it walking distance to Harvard Square where there are so many restaurants and stores. I am definitely going to stay here next time i am up in Cambridge.
