Hotel Veritas is a 31-room independent upscale hotel located in Harvard Square offering intimate service in a hip Cantabrigian setting.

Stayed at Hotel Veritas recently while traveling to Cambridge for a work event and had a great experience. I arrived several hours before the scheduled check in time but the staff were very accommodating and checked me into my room as soon as I arrived which was very helpful as

My qualms with Hotel Veritas stem from the fact that the room I was assigned was either incorrectly represented on the booking site (the onus is on the hotel to remedy this) or was simply not the correct room (I raised this concern to staff, but to no avail). As consumers, we

This is a great option in the heart of Harvard Square. My only complaint is that I wish there were a thicker blanket on the beds, but I didn't ask for an additional one either. Other than this, great. The cookies in the front desk are awesome!

The room was nicely decorated and had everything it needed - even as one of the smaller ones. Quiet. The front desk staff were friendly. I would give it 5 stars but I had to get dressed before I could go get coffee (great setup) downstairs in the lobby. Really nice looking

Hotel Veritas is very nice in terms of its look. There is a fireplace in the lobby and overall it is well appointed. Unfortunately my experience of the service did not match the appearance. There was no heat in my room during my stay and it was very cold. The outside temperature

I wanted to post a photo that gives viewers a sense of what it's like to walk into room 106. I made a conscientious effort to show the room as it is, without any exaggerations.
This is a 5 minute walk to Harvard Square T. This is the heart of Harvard square- a tourist. Good breakfast place at Zoe's cafe and also Zennekens. Probably 20 minute subway ride to Boston -red line to park. Or taxis from Harvard Suare.

Thank you for your inquiry! We are about 2.5 miles from Fenway Park, which would be about a 45-55 minute walk depending on your pace. It's definitely do-able, however, it is very easy to take the MBTA, or the "T", to Fenway! Hotel Veritas is located right on the Red Line in Harvard Square. You would take the T inbound and switch at Park Street to the Green Line. Take any Green Train except for the "E" to Fenway. Most people get off at the Kenmore T stop. We can also call a cab for you if interested. Enjoy the game!
