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...

is well deserved. The Hotel Veritas lived up to all the high ratings by Trip Advisors. The staff at the front desk, especially Laura & Carla were personable & helpful. My spouse & I had reserved a standard queen room and were delighted with the upgrade to one with a balcony. Though the January day was a bit chilly for...

What. A Beautiful. Hotel! My husband and I were in town for the Boston Calling Music festival and wanted to stay nearby to ride the T. to the festival. We found a jackpot in hotel Veritas! The staff were so helpful and polite. Since we were not familiar with the neighborhood, we were referred to delicious eateries that made our...

Hotel Veritas was a true pleasure to stay at. They provided all the amenities of a big hotel but in a much more intimate setting. The staff were extraordinary in their level of service. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Location near Harvard Sqare is great. Staff is very friendly. My room was clean and comfortable. Hotel feels intimate yet has many of the comforts of larger hotels. Lovely lobby with free drinks and snacks.

Great hospitality in a stylish boutique hotel in a beautiful Boston structure. I loved how they had robes in the room to wear and offered free water, juice, and espresso 24/7. To top it off they upgraded us to a room with a balcony for free because of low occupancy, which supremely improved our night.

This is a very basic hotel and very small (31 rooms). The bed was very comfortable and everything was nice. I got a rate of $80 for the petite queen, which I think was good, so I put good value below. The hotel doesn't have a lot of character. Loved the free soda!! no breakfast. I wouldn't call it luxurious...

Excellent. That's all I can say. Very lovely place; has sort of a European hotel vibe with beautiful decor. I loved it. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed here Christmas night; my son's apartment was nearby and we walked to his apt from hotel for Christmas Day gathering. Also very walkable to Harvard Square.

Stayed here in a petite queen room. Ever want the coziness of a smaller property yet not quite the invasive cheeriness offered by a B&B experience? Hotel Veritas presents the perfect middle ground. Friendly staff that is eager to offer assistance yet at a professional distance. Shower water was deliciously warm and the room featured all the expected amenities-a robe,...
