Wiesbaden, Germany
Reviewed yesterday NEW

Centrally located in Cambridge, this hotel is ideal for seeing the city. The executive room I stayed in was roomy, especially for a city center hotel, and extremely comfortable. Service was top notch: always efficient and cheerfully rendered. The food is delicious (and portions are huge!) Prices seemed quite reasonable for the location and quality.

Reviewed 15 November 2016

I stayed over for 3 days on a training course taking place in the hotel. Received a very warm welcome (and goodbye) from the Front Office team, experienced the attentiveness of both concierge and bar teams. Room itself was cosy and temperate already on arrival, stayed over a cold period of time and didn't feel like I didn't have enough...

Located in the heart of scenic Cambridge. You can walk to everything. Close to the Corn Exchange. Quiet rooms, good room service, very good food and brew for a hotel bar (Speckled Hen on draft is a superbly smooth ale), nice breakfast. Pleasant staff.

Very nice, modern hotel in a central location. The hotel offers online checkin so we were able to choose our own room and meant a quick and speedy checkin upon arrival.

The Hilton Cambridge City Centre is a beautiful hotel with tremendous charm and an attentive and caring staff. Newly renovated rooms and the new fitness center make this hotel one of my favorites. Located close to everything in Cambridge, the Hilton is appointed perfectly-- for couples, families, or business travelers.
