Customer review rating 4.5/5

C F. Business - 05/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Checked out after an hour because window would not close properly therefore wind and rain coming in. Texted using WhatsApp because no front desk number to ring, no reply after an hour, went down to find some one, someone came up to the room to sort window. I wasn’t happy with staying in the room because it kept opening. I therefore checked out immediately staff wasn’t bothered I was leaving.

Friendly, reliable and comfortable

Excellent hotel, sadly no invoice

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Anonymous Business - 04/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

I really love this hotel and would not say a word against it, other than I asked for an invoice when I checked out; the girl showed me her tablet with my email address on as if this were proof. I expected an emailed invoice, 48 hours later I have yet to receive it (and yes, I have checked my junk mail!). This is quite a flaw!!! I don’t want to give a 5 rating, but I think not to send out an invoice is a big problem.

Horrible experience and very expensive

Mary675 Business - 03/11/2019 TripAdvisor review

I had interview at Addenbrooke's hospital and booked this hotel. I noticed that there was no reception. Very strange. Staff were just hanging around near the door to check in. I ignored. When I entered my room I just lay in bed and slept off. Woke up at night, wanted to put the lights on, it wasn't working. The light and the wires hanged carelessly very close to the bed. Strange!!! I had to use the TV light and my phone to rehearse for my interview. I was so upset. In the bathroom no soap, just empty container. Please guests, make sure you check your lights, soaps, TV remote, toilet papers in the toilet before you relax. Very expensive room for Nothing.

Good, as usual

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Philip K. Business - 01/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Room was nice and clean, although for some reason I was put in one with an emergency cord in the bathroom. Unlike on previous occasions, I was not given a free drink voucher or bottles of water for being a silver or gold member. Has the rewards scheme changed?

Fast Checkin and Out

Customer review rating 4.5/5

G A. Business - 01/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Checked in so easily and efficiently, took under 60 seconds, no que and the same when I was checking out. Clean and Comfortable room. Could have done with a fridge but apart from that had everything needed.

Glorified youth hostel

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Martin Business - 31/10/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

I thought this hotel was new and located close to the train station so I decided to give it a try, but what a disappointment. This is basically a glorified youth hostel, and you would be treated as such. This place might be a good place for young folks but not for business traveler like I was. The traffic in front of the hotel in the morning was just horrendous, and your taxi would not be able to get in easily due to the traffic jam. This also applies during the evening rush hour. I ended up walking 2 blocks away so that my taxi driver can pick me up easily. My room didn't get cleaned up every day, and the shower head bad a major leak and it sprayed water all over the place when I turned it on. Since the room keeper didn't clean properly, I am sure that person didn't notice that there was a leak. Or had the room keeper noticed the leak and hotel didn't fix the leak, then this is just a neglect. There was almost no insulation between the rooms so I can hear people from up stairs and next door using the bathroom. Not very nice. The restaurant was marginal at best but fortunately there is a tavern right next door and offer really good food.

convenient location

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Jane Solo - 30/10/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

All good except the initial check-in which I found confusing due to the lack of reception desk. Unfortunately there was an empty soap container in the shower which was annoying. Apart from that the bedroom/bathroom unit was compact but well thought out.

Terrible! Slept half the night in the 'lobby' due to E-Card access issues. No response to complaint!

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

Traveler226071 Business - 30/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

There was a problem with the E-Key/Card system and I had to wait 7.5 hours to gain access to my room. Had to sleep half the night in the lobby and eventually gained access at 12:30 AM the next day. Have complained, but as yet have had no response. Not at all happy!!

Great Stay in Cambridge

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Mr P. Families - 29/10/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Best Ibis I have stayed in of many in Western Europe. Staff was excellent and breakfast on par with much more expensive hotels. Approximately 50 meters from main train station entrance (you can look out the breakfast window and read an arrival/departure board) and close to restaurants, pubs and bus stops. Ibis has recently upgraded many locations and this branch is the nicest I've seen yet. Large hi-def TV with multiple language/nationality choices. Central Cambridge is around a 20 minute walk (5 by multiple nearby buses), and most colleges another 10-20 beyond that.

Check-in was difficult

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Anonymous Couples - 29/10/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

It was hard to identify the check-in area for this hotel...as there really was none! The person had a laptop and moved from a chair to a standing position and back to a chair. Upon entering the establishment, my husband and I thought we were in the wrong place as it looked like a coffee shop so we went back outside to ask for directions, then asked the person serving coffee where to check in; he directed us to the person in the red polo shirt with "check in with me" written on it (or some such slogan). It took much longer to check in on the laptop than we ever did at a normal check-in counter.

Comfortable hotel in great location.
