Fabulous 8.8 From 958 reviews

Very Good 8.0
3 night stay in Cambridge
Enjoyed our stay, the location was decent. Only thing was a bit of street noise at night. I like to sleep with the windows open and facing the street/square was a bit bothersome. Maybe the rooms at the back are better? Otherwise I have no complaints. Breakfast was very good, lots of choice on the buffet. A typical Ibis Budget hotel. I use them often for short stays, they are convenient and have everything that you need for a short stay, well thought through.

Good value and location in Cambridge
Convenient location in Cambridge right next to the train station. I needed to be in and out quickly and the hotel was perfect. Ibis have stepped up their game with this location, it is in great condition. Rooms are pretty spacious and offer everything one might need. The only thing I missed was a mini fridge but I knew it wouldn't be there. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

Great location, 24 hour restaurant and bar
Overall clean, new, right next to station, reasonably quiet. The only thing is that the staff have no front desk, so they make notes for each other in an app, and this system doesn't work well for communicating over shift changes. We were waiting for the airline to deliver a delayed bag, and each time we checked with staff whether it had arrived, it was like they had no idea what we were talking about. They would then check the notes in their app, but often missed the information. When the bag finally did come, we were told it hadn't by 2 different people, until I pressured the second one to look more carefully. Turned out it arrived 15 hours before, and there was a note in the app, but she had no idea. No conditioner, shower sometimes ran very hot at random times. Overall, though, I was happy and would definitely stay again.

Very pleased
Very pleased with the hotel. COVID-19 guidelines were followed, all the staff were lovely & the room clean & comfy. Ideal location for sightseeing in the beautiful city & a handy Sainsbury’s, Pret & a lovely pub in the same square. Public car park was a bit pricey, £12 for 24 hours.

All staffs were friendly, breakfast was good although it wasn’t many options. Cleanliness of the room floor wasn’t good enough.

Sweet spot in Cambrdige.
Most convenient location. Nice room (although I really didn't spend much time in it). Good shower. Bar open as long as you want (used to be that way everywhere, but nice to see some places still honour it) Check in was relaxed and felt much smoother than many hotels I've stayed at. Definitely would go back next time I'm in Cambridge

Lovely hotel to base yourself in for a trip to Cambridge. Bonus was the 24hr restaurant in the foyer, beers and pizza at 2am, great! Room was small but functional and clean.
