I thought this hotel was exactly what I expected: a boutique hotel, probably a little bigger than a townhouse hotel, comfortable and modern, but without extras that in other circumstances I would want (eg Gym) but didn't on this occasion. I was reminded on check in that I had booked a 'petite queen' (really) and I dreaded a really small...

I hesitate to write this since the hotel is small and so great that I do not want it unavailable when we need it! It is absolutely our new favorite hotel in Cambridge (and Boston) and will keep our loyalty going forward. From the quiet side street to approach the hotel to the calming, inviting and gorgeous interior, this hotel...

I stay here routinely on business, and it is a much more personal spot than the huge hotels. The rooms have character and are spotless. The rooms can be small to a fault, however. I like boutique hotels in general, but these can be super small. Staff is super helpful, and the location is the best on Cambridge.

This hotel is incredible! I would call Veritas a fancy little hotel with staff who become friends, great coffee, while perfectly distanced from Harvard Square. Just far enough to avoid the crowds but close enough to walk anywhere. The staff was probably the most impressive part of the hotel although the rooms were also some of the most unique I...

I say this because Veritas=Truth and there were different versions of it!!! We made reservations almost 2 months in advance because it was for graduation week at Harvard. I originally requested a queen balcony room, 2 weeks before arrival I called to reconfirm, this is when several issues came to light. I was first told that I had no reservations,...

The Veritas is a high-end boutique hotel in close proximity to Harvard Square. The staff is friendly and the rooms are nice if a bit smallish for the $300 plus per night price tag I paid. The price would have to come down for me to stay here again.

This little hotel was perfect! The staff was helpful, attentive and genuine. The room was comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. I also loved the amazing little spaces around the hotel where you could sit and relax. They have an amazing beverage bar in the lobby with coffee, tea, soda, juice and water available round the clock and free. I also...

I stayed here one night for a job interview. It is expensive, but this is Boston. Everything is expensive. It is a small hotel, looks like a converted row house or apartment building. The room was larger than you average hotel room with a very large bath and a small balcony with table and chairs. Location is pretty good. You...

This is a lovely boutique-style hotel right off of Mass. Ave. but giving more of a quiet, neighborhood feel. Yes, my room was small, but the hotel doesn't keep its room sizes a secret! Certainly large enough for one person, with a very comfortable bed, chair, desk, and nice bathroom. I probably interacted with 5-6 staff members, and they were...

Lovely, immaculate and beautifully stylish boutique hotel. Amazing responsive staff. Just great little touches like the complimentary coffee and cappuccino bar, wonderful lounge to sit and relax in. Nice and quiet, no crowds or concrete mazes like the big chain hotels.
