Spent one night here. Friendly greeting on arrival and check in was swift and clear. Room looks like a standard box of a hotel room circa 1993. Beige and cream, box TV, dim lighting, zero character. Bed was comfortable, bathroom fine (more beige). I like sleeping with air circulating in my bedroom and you cannot open any window in any bedroom in this hotel, apparently due to the heating/airconditioning system. Feels like 1993 with no concessions to eco-friendly here, and I disliked having a window bolted shut intensely! The aircon/heating is fine, but is it really necessary 24/7 all year round? We were warned that if you turn it off the room gets very stuffy. Having said that, street outside got noisy on a Saturday night so may have some advantages.
We got a deal at £125 for a double, but even so I think over priced for a hotel with all the soul of a Travel Lodge. Location however IS brilliant, right in the heart of Cambridge.
