We were in Cambridge from Sept 11th through the 13th and had a great experience at this hotel. We had a 4th floor room which was newly renovated and very comfortable. Breakfast was nice and staff helpful. Nothing bad I can say.. It was exactly as expected. Very nice. Would recommend this hotel but if you arrive by train, get... More

Great two night stay here with large room and helpful staff. Good breakfast with nice selections. Enjoyed our first time visit to Cambridge and staying in this hotel was excellent for location being within walking distance to most shops, restaurants, significant sights. Good value too.

The staff was very helpful and accommodating, especially since we checked in with 25 students. But the hotel does not offer anything beyond bare minimum of what you might expect from a major hotel in an historic city with many tourists. It's a conference (airport style) hotel with a trashy pub on the ground floor, nothing more. Rooms are large... More

I think staying at Cambridge city Hotel complements the atmosphere of this outstanding academic and research environment. Friendly staff and excellent breakfast. Location is wonderful as it is on the gate to the city center and 5 mins away from the main collages including King’s college. I would definitely recommended for people visiting Cambridge and want to enjoy its unique... More

Had been hear when it was the Royal Crown Plaza..and liked it. however..my husband and I arrived from the airport, very tired, and the bell men ignored us, and we had to drag our heavy bags upstairs. then we were told if we wanted a later checkout..of only 2 hours, it would be 20 pounds. The final thing was that... More

We had great experience with a short stay in Cambridge City Hotel, wich is really in central place and located simply to find it from/to train coach stations. Most of surprising and very very special - great staff, - smiling, welcoming, "can do" atittude, atention and professionalism, especially at the restaurant. We had extraordinary dinner, and extra thanks for it... More

I really enjoyed the stay at the hotel! Members of stuff were very friendly, especially our waitress Mariya who took really good attention to us and her advises on dishes were very helpful. Rooms very clean and we really enjoyed the sleep!

I organised a conference here in August for 21 people and it was the most seamless event I have run. Alicia, my conference organiser, was amazing. Quick with responses to my never ending questions and changes and there before the event to meet with me and run through the details. I stayed over too, in a newly refurbished room. The... More

A little tricky to find in the car, this hotel has valet parking (£18) so pack appropriately (not like me with arms full of clothes!) We could check in early and have a ground floor room or wait and have a higher floor which has renovated rooms. Opted for the early one and no issues with the non renovated rooms... More
