Not very good value

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Jane G TripAdvisor review

I would rate this 3/4, but no more- the location is good, though being next to the station some rooms get noise from train announcements. Double glazing and aircon meant that it was ok with windows closed, though the rooms remained rather too warm overnight [and this was in moderate weather]. Breakfast was good. Rooms were clean, and staff very helpful. Like other reviewers we would have liked a room fridge. The decor is dated and the en suite shower room was an odd prefabricated 'pod' with a mediocre shower flow, fan permanently on, and a noisy door. Check in desk very oddly and awkwardly placed in bar area. This is not a budget hotel- and as far as we could see, not the cheapest for the location. For the price we expected a bit more. I would not rule out staying here again but I will probably try elsewhere next time.

I had a wonderful experience at the ibis Cambridge Central Station. The hotel is very well located, a few steps from the station. The room was perfectly clean and it's very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was very good and fresh. The whole team was amazing. My special thank you is to Joana from front office. She was very nice and have very good tips about the city. I would definitely return.

Great stay

Worn out and overcrowded

The wash basin would not drain which is a common problem with Ibis preassembled pod bathrooms. The shower had a hole drilled in the floor to allow that to drain. Despite being quite new the hotel is ‘worn out’ due to high occupancy and low standards of Ibis construction. The reception area is in a tiny ground floor lounge / cafe and not fit for purpose as it is far too small and continually full during the morning and afternoon of luggage and early arrival / late departure guests sleeping. The two small lifts are insufficient for the 300+ rooms. The hotel charges rates far higher than the basic facilities offered.
