The Hotel Veritas is a beautifully-designed boutique hotel in close proximity to Harvard Square. Upon arrival, we got a warm, friendly greeting from the front desk, help with our luggage, and information about our room status. While the room was not ready, we took a short walk and received a prompt call when it was ready and were informed our luggage was already in the room. The room decor is elegant and cozy, taking advantage of space well for being a tight room. The finishes are high-end. Overall we had a wonderful stay. I will say though, however, the hotel is showing some signs of needed TLC, from a cracked glass top on one of the nightstands in our room, from stained carpets and walls in the room and in the hall. The lobby furniture looks worn and could use to be replaced. The gas fireplace in the lobby was never turned on, despite it being in the 30s outside. The small outdoor space was littered with trash and is deemed useless in the winter as there are no heaters or firepits. I think a few special touches could elevate this hotel further, but generally, we had a great stay thanks to the warm staff, comfortable room and great location.

The front desk staff were friendly and efficient. We reserved a two twin bed room and it was quite small. Essentially the room contained the two beds, a small desk/table with a stool, and a closet with a rather large safe that could easily fit some laptops. The bathroom size was ok, but did not have a lot of counter space. I feel they could have added a shelf on the wall to the left of the sink for more space. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. The location is great f you are visiting Harvard. There are plenty of restaurants and bakeries within walking distance. The Harvard T stop is less than a 10 minute walk and the Central T stop approx. a 12 minute walk. The hotel is on a side street off of Mass Ave in a fairly pretty neighborhood. However, if you get a room facing Mass Ave, you can slightly hear the truck noises in the morning. If this bothers you, bring earplugs or request a room not near the street side. All in all, we were quite happy with this hotel.

In the heart of it all!! A boutique hotel with a cozy, at-home atmosphere. The most thoughtful and kind staff, the front desk manager really made sure we had a great visit; he suggested places to go and things to do (we had two kids 2 and 5 yo’s with us). It was our first time traveling again since the pandemic started and seeing how clean and well-kept the entire hotel and room were really eased all our worries. 10/10 would recommend and come again!!!!! Thank you so much Hotel Veritas team!

I came to Veritas Hotel on a business trip and I could not have asked for a better experience. The place was clean, the staff was friendly, and I felt right at home. The food in the area was great and the front desk staff was very helpful in providing suggestions on places to visit and restaurants to eat at. Veritas is at the top of my list for places to stay when I come back.

I had a wonderful experience during my stay. This hotel is in the middle of bustling Cambridge. Clean, friendly staff, great location, budget friendly. That’s all I look for in a hotel. Will book again when I return to Boston.
