The Cambridge City Hotel is in the centre of Cambridge, a city that was voted in the top 10 UK cities at the Condé Nast Traveller Readers' Travel Awards 2014 and is a place where "punts glide dreamily along the River Cam, past magnificent medieval and Tudor colleges", says The Sunday Times

Everything that encompasses an ideal city break to Cambridge is on the hotel's doorstep -- King's College, Trinity College, The Backs, the Fitzwilliam Museum and the River Cam to name a few.

The Fitzwilliam Museum houses over 500,000 historic treasures and art from 2500 BC until the present day, with work from Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt and Picasso. The cobbled Market Square is a must -- there's a market every day, where you can buy everything from books and garden plants to fresh fish and health foods. Alternatively, try a Cambridge Sculpture Trail starting from the Tourist Information Centre and tick off over 30 sculptures throughout the walk.

Shopping in Cambridge is a treat, with both independent boutiques and the Grand Arcade, which has over 60 high-street stores. Lastly, you can't leave without going punting, the quintessential thing to do in Cambridge. Most punts come with blankets and umbrellas.

All rooms at the hotel have free Wi-Fi and pay-per-view movies. Upgraded Executive Rooms have a mini fridge and The White Company bathroom products. There's a fitness suite with a sauna, as well as a bar and lounge. Breakfast and dinner is in the Book Room Restaurant, with an à la carte menu for evening sittings.

Other Comments: I wasn't happy at being told I owed an additional £40.00 upon arrival. I refused to pay and handed them my travel zoo receipt. They took a photocopy. Also, I had to request an extra mug and glass for my daughter.
Enjoyed Most: Friendliness of the staff.

Enjoyed Most: Central location, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable bed and excellent breakfast
Other Comments: This was an excellent choice for exploring Cambridge and good value for money. We really enjoyed the punting (included). Breakfast was plentiful and the staff were very friendly. Only negatives were the cost of parking - but to be fair, all parking in Cambridge is expensive and so to have the headache removed was well worth it. Also there was only one member of staff serving at the bar in the evening - we wanted to enjoy our included glass of prosecco before going to dinner but he sadly had a large coffee order to complete so we were left waiting at the bar for a long time before anyone could serve us. We were late for our dinner reservation. But overall we thought it was an excellent experience - thank you!
