“Cheap Cheerful Cambridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Friendly staff its more hostel than an hotel the rooms have showers and tea and Facilities and tv. The bathroom door is very good i the the slideness of it. Breakfast is very good set bin a room above reception with comp wireless which good when don't know where to go or eat in cambridge if never been before . Tips for the hotel fix all the tv as all the channels one -five do not work as only some of them do. Also i think for breakfast a toaster as itrs really cheap to buy one and i reckon people will use it. Parking is a bit of issue as their only 4-5 car parking spaces one time me and other half came back from a night out had to park in the station car park but you only get a ticket from 5-4am in the morning like i not getting up at that time in the end i done on my mobile by paid alot of money for 5 days of parking £26.90 so if you go out suggest you come back before sort of 5;30pm or 6pm to get you space for parking

Room Tip: for people who staying for week or longer i suggest room 1 as it much bigger and quiter

Friendly staff this is more of a hostel than hotel. I stayed a few years ago and it was in a far better state, the place is well worn and desperately needs a facelift. The rooms are small but that's ok the wooden floors are worn some rust on the shower. Bunk beds comfortable with decent bedding. Breakfast is very good plentiful and fresh. If the place was done up it would be a great spot to stay in am otherwise expensive city, as it is it's fine but a bit scruffy, I would stay again.

We stayed here for one night. The location was excellent. Just 30 sec walk from the train station.

We checked in at 11pm. We were offered a basement room. At a night of 4 degrees Celsius, we were surprised to find that the shower ran out of hot water! So we waited until the morning, fortunately hot water lasted for 5 minutes in the morning. So taking shower in this hotel has got to be quick!

The door was paper thin. We could hear all the noise from the outside.

Wifi is weak. You can only get signal at the dining room and it is inconsistent too.

Room Tip: Basement room isn't nice

I have to say I did not know that Cambridge Rail Station was so far out of the City -this does not help the hotel.
Took a while to check in as there was a stag party in front of me but the receptionsist was very good and helpful. Unfortunately there is very limited room to park and so had to pay to park i the station car park -which you can only do by phone.
The double rooms are a little dingy being in the basement and so are also a little damp, the wife was not impressed.
There is very little to do nearby, the station seems to be in the seedy part of Cambridge.

Right opposite the station, so a good position. Staff were friendly. The room was cabin style, small but I wasn't holding a party! Bunk beds which were comfortable and clean. Towels and soap, tea and coffee facilities, TV. A slow wifi signal could be accessed from the lobby - fine for checking emails or light browsing for a bar or venue.

Biggest let down was the shower (room 15). It did not fit onto the riser and so you had to hold it. More water poured out the back of the shower head than out of the shower rose. Not great.

Breakfast was OK. Tea and coffee. Orange juice. Fresh croissant. Jam. Cheese or ham rolls. Not high cuisine but satisfactory. It did feel very youth hostel but unfortunately didn't have the YHA prices. I was quite happy with my stay... but it did seem very pricey.

I stayed here two nights with my husband. Accommodation in Cambridge was tight, and this was the cheapest without going to a hostel. We had bunk beds on the top floor.
Rooms were small - as per previous reviews, space is at a premium, there was definitely some juggling with bags. En-suite shower and toilet were small, but adequate and clean! Bunk beds were sturdy and mattresses were comfy.
Had minimal contact with staff, but all seemed pleasant and friendly.
Breakfast was good - cereal, fruit, coffee, toast, pastries and bread with ham or cheese. Wifi was restricted to the breakfast room, but there was a sign saying they were upgrading the wifi in the near future.
As far as location to the city centre is concerned, we didn't have any troubles walking into town - in fact it was a pleasant walk and not too far in my opinion.
Accepting that this is budget accommodation, the biggest draw-back was the noise. Although this was right near the train station, we didn't hear any train noise, but instead we were right next to the bike racks and there was a loud metallic scraping noise every morning that woke us up - very early.
Overall I found this to be convenient basic accommodation, clean but noisy.

Rooms are dirty, smelly, hot, cramped and poor value even for the 'cheap' price. Cityroomz should be paying people to stay here, not billing them!

The only two plus points are the location and the continental breakfast was surprisingly ok. Although on the location front, it's important to remember it's near the station and therefore very noisy at all hours! Think you'd need to be a very heavy sleeper to have a good nights rest here!

The 'hotel' would be better off just admitting it's a cheap hostel and I think the reviews would improve.

I would never stay here again. Recommend to avoid.
