Wonderful hotel with great location, but what really made it special was the staff! Everyone of them we come across was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Valet parking was a god sent, and was really quick and easy. We were able to check in early as the room was ready and when I told the receptionist it was our anniversary when we came back to the room later that day we were treated with an anniversary card and some little treats! This place is worth every penny!

A welcome respite from a hectic week at home. I felt most welcome and safe. The next morning I drove to Bishop's Stortford to be with my family for Christmas.

Conveniently situated and nice.

Pros: Convenient and the valet parking is good.
Location: Great
It is what you expect from a Hilton hotel with the benefit of being located in the middle of town.

Great hotel - central Cambridge

Excellent stay at the Hilton Cambridge, stayed in a Junior Suite on the 4th floor. Celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and the staff really looked after us. Drinks on arrival and a complimentary bottle of wine with a tray of freshly made macaroons. Room was fabulous .....the only downside would be no view from room 432 ...but the restaurant and bar have great views of Cambridge which we enjoyed. Would stay again.

Great central hotel for colleges

Pros: Hotel clean with good sized rooms. Staff very helpful. Location within 5mins walk of Queens or St. Cat's colleges. Cons: Breakfast pricey. Parking £18 per night Evening meal also pricey (plus had to send my steak back as it was so cold it wouldn't melt the garlic butter on top). Very easy to clock up a very high cost overall. Recommend eating elsewhere as there are many good places to eat - inc. breakfast. (recommend The Copper Kettle - good full english £5.95) May 2013

Loistava sijainti

Ystävällinen ja asiantunteva henkilökunta. Runsas ja monipuolinen aamiainen. Loistava sijainti keskellä kaupunkia, tämä oli tärkein valintaperusteeni, tärkeimmät kohteet olivat lähellä tai ainakin kävelyetäisyydellä.
