I spend two nights in this hotel. As its name suggests the hotel is located in the city center and business and pleasure activities can be done within walking distance. Room was okay, great bed and TV, empty minibar. Breakfast was standard and okayish, but I am always a bit surprises why a four star rated hotel isn't able to... More

The team really look after us with Faizan offering us an upgrade for a very reasonable sum on arrival to a master suite - this room was fantastic - brand new, hugely spacious and free soft mini bar. The only hotel I've been in which isn't trying to rip you off with payperview very time you hit the remote -... More

From the reservation process to check out we were very happy with this hotel. Our room was spacious, very well finished, wanted for nothing, and was super clean. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Breakfast was not a disappointment, but the best thing was bright and helpful staff, with the hotel being right in the centre of the city. So convenient.... More

Perfect location in central Cambridge - a few minutes from the shops, Colleges and restaurants. Arrived early after a fortunate set of connections from an international flight and the staff at reception were very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, they had a room available right away which was immaculate and very comfy and quiet. Good size room and well-appointed... More

We were only in town for 1 night. Cambridge City Hotel was a very nice stopover - plush, clean, comfortable, accommodating - nothing over the top. Doesn't have the charm, character or intimacy of a quaint B&B (which is more our style) - but for a large hotel and at the price, it was one of the better ones that... More

Stayed for one night over the weekend and while the room was to a very high standard with an excellent bathroom the stay was spoiled by the noise coming from the Irish bar downstairs. Having returned to the room about 11.30 at night after dinner I got to 'enjoy' the music and bass for another hour or so before it... More

White and shiny tourist hotel and so a little at odds with the ancient city but with an excellent position in the centre of things and this is a place where you have to walk! The best equipped and immaculate bedroom I have had anywhere. International staff welcoming and helpful, especially those at reception. Self-service breakfast is managed at speed... More

The brand new refurbishment has been highly successful. The rooms are well equipped, quiet, air conditioned and of adequate size. The staff were very obliging and service levels generally were excellent. So why only four stars? The basin tap wouldn't produce hot water, although there was plenty obtainable via the shower. The bread at breakfast was uniformly cut-loaf supermarket style... More
