My son is a student at Harvard, and my husband and I have stayed at a number of hotels in the Cambridge area. This week, we tried Hotel Veritas, and our search for a go-to hotel in the area is now over! It's a very friendly, charming hotel which is well-located right near Harvard Square. There are drinks and snacks...

Very welcoming hotel! Greeted warmly and had a great stay. Rooms are small but comfortable. Every person behind the front desk was lovely. Lobby offers complimentary coffee, tea and water - very nice touch! Frette linens in room were also a great touch. Location in Harvard square was terrific. Double beds are hard for a tall family of 3...but the...

If palatial rooms are your thing, the Veritas is not for you; rooms are very small, and the "petite" room is positively teeny. However, fixtures and fittings are high quality, rooms are clean, and beds are comfy. More importantly, the staff are super friendly and accommodating, there is a little area by reception with free bottles of water, fancy Spanish...

The hotel is beautiful, small but well done. The staff is what makes it really special. Super eager to help and guide and I needed help with parking and a staff member came out in the snow to help me. Awesome experience.

Hotel Veritas was wonderful. Perfect location in the heart of Cambridge. The staff was very accommodating and with the room was great. Beautifully decorated and appointed with a great mix of traditional style and modern features and amenities. Plenty of natural light and windows that open.

I had a mix up in number of nights staying and had to go to another hotel - - tried to help by calling to other hotels which was nice . Would have been good to get a complimentary wine or other item as an extra apology.

This is a boutique style hotel quite close to Harvard. The rooms are fairly small but very comfortable, and the staff are universally excellent. For those who want spacious rooms with lots of in-room facilities it's perhaps not the best choice, but it's ideal for people visiting Harvard on business, or for those wanting a little romantic getaway.

Lovely New England building with small but comfortable rooms. I always sleep well in good beds, service and concierge are warm and helpful. Easy walking distance to Harvard Square. Great drop in yoga place opposite (Karma Yoga)

Stayed here 2 nights for business. Reserved the Petite Queen room, and it is very small. Barely enough room to get around the bed to the closet. I'm not sure it would work for 2 people, but for my needs it was adequate. Although it was a small room, there is enough space at the desk to get some work...

The hotel is in an incredible location as it is on the corner of Remington Street and Massachusetts Avenue. A five minute walk down Massachusetts Ave takes you to Harvard Square. In addition, the Harvard library and an entrance to the campus is a block away. While the hotel has no restaurant and no food service, there are plenty of...
