We enjoyed staying at the Regent. The staff were very friendly and helpful - they let us check-in early after a long flight from the States and even made us a to-go breakfast bag when we had to leave early at the end of our stay to catch a train. The location is the best part - quick 12 minute or so walk to the train station, a 5 minute walk across Parker's Piece if you come via National Express bus from Heathrow. Also a 5 minute walk to the center of Cambridge.
The Regent was in a safe area. The room was clean and had a nice, large window overlooking the park. Other reviewers have said that it gets loud in the park at night - we stayed on a Friday and Saturday night and the noise did not bother us. We heard nothing. We kept the window closed because it was really cold outside, so that may be the trick.
We stayed in one of the "small rooms" which was indeed small (think NYC sizes). It was fine for a couple staying two nights. I would probably not stay more than two nights in the "small rooms." However, I will say that although small, the rooms were very well organized (no wasted space!). There was also plenty of shelving in the bathroom for my make-up and other girly products. The shower/tub had great water pressure and was spacious.
We would stay here again. The Regent was the best priced hotel for the location. I would recommend.
