Three day, two night break from London. Looking online for some hotel tips, decided on Cambridge City Hotel due to it's location in the centre. For that, cannot fault it at all - convenient to everything and a mere 20 minute walk from the station. Upon check-in a little before noon, was told our room was ready and available for... More

First the good bits - excellent location, good breakfast buffet, large comfortable rooms. The not so good: 1. Wake up call: After a late evening celebrating a wedding we got an un-requested early wake up call at 6am! In fact not one, but two, as they phoned back to check we'd got the first one! When I went to reception... More

Stayed here for one night over Easter 2014. The location was excellent, right in the city centre (near the large John Lewis) and the service from the reception, concierge and the staff at breakfast was pleasant and friendly. Car parking (£18 per day) and a full choice of breakfast were included in the room rate. The rooms were compact, but... More

Perfect central location with easy valet parking at a good rate for Cambridge. The staff were faultless and the main public areas clean and comfortable. The restaurant food was all over seasoned (a group of 12 agreed on this). My room was comfortable if a little out of date but the hotel is being refurbished at the moment so I... More

Stayed here for one night on business and everything was fine. Friendly, helpful staff. Good room. Did not eat in in the evening, but breakfast was excellent. Good location for the centre of Cambridge. Parking provided, but at a very high price - felt a bit ripped off, especially as had to pay even more to leave it for a... More

One of the best hotels in Cambridge! Ideal location in the city center with close proximity to historical and the modern parts of the town. Very nice rooms and breakfast. I found staff in particular, Darya to be easily approachable, friendly and helpful. We were pleasantly surprized by being given a free box of chocolates on our arrival for booking... More

We visited the hotel for a long weekend exploring Cambridge. The hotel is perfectly placed; parked the car on Friday and didn't use it until we left today. Reception always helpful and very welcoming. Room was ready when we arrived at 12noon and our usual request for more coat hangers was dealt with immediately! Rooms are great, as mentioned elsewhere... More
