I’m just back from a weekend break in a fabulous city, Cambridge. I just loved it here .. so much I can’t wait to go back.
There was just so much to do, and it helped that the weather was good too.
I’ve only thought of Cambridge University when I think of this great city, but there is so much more.
There are so many shops, places to eat, museums and architecture that one weekend is not enough.
That said, we booked the Ibis Hotel located right outside Central Station, a modern part of the city with developments in the works.
We used the car park outside and paid for three days which cost us £35 for our stay because we walked everywhere! I covered 18.3 km on foot in one day with my wife… 27000 steps.
The hotel is welcoming, with fun seating, decor and a unique character, similar to the 25 Hours Hotel in Vienna.
The staff welcomed us with smiles and humour, especially when we thought there were no lifts!
The doors to the rooms were marked up with door numbers in a very modern way, and corridors were cruise-like in their appearance, as were the bathroom and room we stayed in.
Breakfast was fab on the first floor, with quirky seating and hot and fresh food in an airy space.
The rooms were so practical, as I mentioned. The wardrobe was just a hanging space with a rail and shelf. The bedside tables were a bit small but then for a phone and watch .. sufficient.
The bathroom was as if it were delivered during the build as a unit.
The Ibis Hotel gets my full approval for a well-placed, functional, practical and friendly place to stay.
Next time you visit Cambridge try this hotel; you’ll not be disappointed.
