My husband & I were in town for a grad school reunion, & chose Hotel Veritas for its close proximity to Harvard, Harvard Square, & sightseeing in Boston. This was a repeat visit...the last stay was in 2012. The hotel is small, rooms included, but is beautifully furnished & with every amenity one could need. The whole place is quiet... More

Right next to Harvard Yard . The room was as small as you can possibly get it without calling it a closet. You have to climb over the toilet to get in the shower. Very clean. Lobby is nice with great coffee. Saturday night was slightly over $400 including taxes, so it is not a cheap hotel. There are better... More

Très jolie decoration et chambre agréable bien que bruyante. Je retournerai à cette adresse à mon prochain séjour malgré une équipe d'accueil peu chaleureuse. Very nice refurbishing, clean and lovely place, despite of a bedroom a little too noisy over the subway line... I will get back to this hotel next time I come to Cambridge despite of a quite...

We stayed 3 nights in the hotel and found the service, quality of the rooms, and the location absolutely terrific. Close to restaurants, transportation, shopping, and of course Harvard University, its location can't be beat. I will definitely return to this hotel when I visit the Cambridge/Boston area in the future. Highly recommended.

My wife and I spent the night in Cambridge as a quick getaway from elsewhere in Massachusetts. Our stay was wonderful, and the staff was great. They have very nice decor throughout the hotel, and it certainly has a nice personal feel to it. Our room was very cozy, and was clean. We loved the heated floor in the bathroom... More

The room was small (two twin beds) but very comfortable; it didn't have a refrigerator which would have been convenient if I was staying longer. The concierges at the front desk were very helpful in arranging things like a 5am taxi pick-up. It's an expensive place to stay (as is just about everywhere near Harvard Sq.) but you do feel...

Staff was excellent. They went above & beyond to assist me and my daughter. Location is amazing. So much within walking distance. Ambiance is excellent. Loved the coffee and outdoor patio. Only problem was a slow sink drain.

Convenient location if you need to be around Harvard, friendly staff but small rooms and what's worse there is a railway tunnel underneath the hotel .. And the trains keep running until midnight and start their day shortly after 5.00 am - couldn't get much sleep at all If you have to stay at this hotel ask for a room... More

Hotel amazing - staff so friendly Megan & the guy doing night shift were so helpful. Would definitely be back. Zoe's diner across the street was amazing for a breakfast. Great links to train & buses going to downtown Boston. Harvard square about a 5 minute walk nothing not to like.

The hotel is located very close (within walking distance) to Harvard University. The hotel is very clean and nice. It is not extravagant in any way, but the staff is very professional and the facilities are updated and clean.
