Mostly excellent, but it may not be for all

Posted Feb 9, 2017
On the plus side, the staff are incredibly friendly, and the room is kept meticulously. It is located very close to Harvard Square so location wise it does the job brilliantly. Free coffee (Nespresso!!!) and complementary drinks are amazing, and the wi-fi connection is also great. However, there is one - and probably only - drawback that is particularly noticeable, which is that the building and the facilities are aging a little bit. The switch for one of the standing lamps simply didn't work so I had to pull the plug out to turn it off. Moreover, because the windows are single-glazed, there was definitely some draft coming in at night, which is somewhat worrying considering the fact that the weather wasn't anywhere near how cold Boston area could get in winter. But the bathroom is definitely refurbished and modern: water pressure was good, toilet was brand new etc. All in all, however, I would definitely recommend this hotel. The staff, the service, and the location more than make up for whatever little infelicities the hotel may have in terms of its facilities. Keep it up guys! Thank you!

Wonderfully convenient to Cambridge.

Posted Jan 24, 2017
Pros: See above
Location: Cambridge is filled with shops, university haunts and academic buildings. It is also close to much public transport and has wonderful dining choices.
Staff was wonderfully helpful. Hotel was elegant, with lovely ambience. Because it is actually located within a rather historic house the rooms are somewhat small. The atmosphere makes up for this slight inconvenience. Despite the fact that the rooms are on the small side, the bathrooms are well appointed and the amenities are great.

Wonderful boutique hotel close to Harvard

Posted Dec 8, 2016
Pros: Loved the decor and the coffee machine; the helpfulness of the staff; and the location.
Cons: It would be nice to have coffee makers in the rooms.
Location: Great location near Mass Ave and Harvard.
Hotel Veritas is a lovely place to stay. It is elegant, warm, friendly and comfortable. The staff is welcoming and helpful. I enjoyed sitting in the lobby by the fire or lounging in my pleasing room. The bathroom floor was heated! The Hotel is close to Harvard University and to Mass. Ave. (there are some good restaurants and cafes nearby). All in all, a treat!

It's a super central boutique hotel, at a fair price point (at least during Thanksgiving). It's great how the hotel retains Cambridge's architecture. The hotel is steps from Harvard, and a beautiful 30min walk from Davis Square and Somerville (the Brooklyn of Boston).
