"..won’t satisfy everyone’s tastes and wants. It is too small to do that and too smart to try." Boston Globe


TripAdvisor rates Hotel Veritas as the best hotel in Cambridge, MA and the best hotel near Harvard University.

One of the recent reviews of Hotel Veritas on TripAdvisor:

“Fabulously appointed tiny rooms in Harvard Square”

“This two-year hotel offers impeccable and friendly service in a well-located boutique hotel near Harvard Square. The staff bends over backwards to take care of your every need (Nespresso machine and all types of non-alcoholic beverages are free in the lobby) and one feels truly looked after. Having said that, there is no restaurant, there is a bar service in the lobby where local spirits are served and the immediate neighborhood does not have the best restaurants in Cambridge. I have stayed here now 3 times and will continue to do so…although the difference in price between this and the other luxury hotel in Harvard Square (the Charles) has been narrowing and may now be nonexistent.”

Stayed April 2012, traveled with family
