Unaware of what to expect as I traveled from Los Angeles to Cambridge, this hotel is quite unique! Its nestled in a GREAT location in Cambridge surrounded by local shops, just a walk away from HARVARD Square, and HArvard University. More importantly, beautifully designed building, clean rooms, and the PRICE was RIGHT! With that being stated, I booked this hotel...

We have been staying at the hotel since it opened. Love the design bu,the maintenance is not up to the standard of the hotel. Wall paper by the elevator on the second floor is ripped and shredding. There was mold in the bathtub surround. The sofa and pillows in the lobby are getting shabby. Stained wallpaper in the entrance. Dirty...

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Location couldn't be better. Close to Harvard T but in a quiet neighborhood. Very comfortable and clean. Couldn't have been a better experience. I will return.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Veritas which is very conveniently located. The boutique hotel is well decorated with very pretty guest rooms. My guest room had a very comfortable king sized bed although the room was small. The bathroom had a good-sized shower stall but no bathtub. I found the hotel to be quiet, although the patio area can...

I stayed at the Hotel Veritas while in Cambridge for a business meeting at Harvard University. I chose to stay at the Hotel Veritas due to its location and competitive price which was $100 less per night than the Charles Hotel, where I normally stay. The hotel is beautifully decorated, very clean and the staff is friendly and professional. My...

Room was on the small side, but 5 minutes walk to Harvard Yard. Parking $34 per nite but valet always prompt. Bathroom was nice and large. Free bottled water, soda, coffee and tea! Overall a good experience at a reasonable price in a great location!

We stay in Cambridge frequently and I was surprised that I had not found this hotel before. The location is perfect. The price for a petite queen is only slightly higher than some of the lower priced B&B's but the room and location are significantly better. Although breakfast is not included, they do provide orange juice, coffee and a biscuit...

A very affordable, upscale boutique hotel a few blocks from Harvard Square. The staff could not have been friendlier. The room was small, but adequate, and immaculate. The hotel offers valet parking for $34, which we found to be well worth it. Complimentary coffee, espresso, tea, soda, bottled water and juices, in the lounge 24 hours, was a nice touch.
