This was our first visit to the Boston area. We were very interested to see the Harvard campus and the city of Boston. Hotel Veritas was an easy 2 block walk from campus with restaurants, shops, and a subway stop along the way. Had we known about the subway when we first arrived in Boston, we could have avoided the $50 taxi ride from the airport to the hotel. The subway can transport to any location in the Boston metro area very inexpensively (about $21 for a 7-day pass). Hotel Veritas rooms are indeed small but very clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. The only thing lacking in them is a coffee maker. Despite having a room on the 3rd floor and we could still hear the rumble of the subway but it was not a big deal. Subway rides into downtown Boston took about 15 - 20 minutes. Many excellent restaurants in downtown Boston
