Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our 8 night stay at this hotel was quite good. We must say though our bright spot every morning was a lovely greeting by one of the staff for the breakfast. Her name was Ella. She was such a star! Always a smile on her face, special ordered poached eggs for us with a smile. She was so organized with checking guests room numbers, clearing tables when needed and ensuring the breakfast items were all topped up and everything on the bar was tidy. She truly was amazing and deserves all the accolades she can have in her position with Ibis. She is truly a great ambassador for Ibis!

We stayed with a whole schoolclass for three nights. Ibis booked us all in rooms next to each other, which was very good, and easy for us teachers, to organize with our pupils. The staff was brilliant with our group. Thank you so much for taking care of us in your warm way. We had a great time at Ibis, and many of us really enjoyed the very nice breakfast.

The rooms are clean, the food is good and Ella tended to all our needs. Breakfast was included each morning and it was delicious. I think that the only thing that was missing from pur rooms was a fridge. It would be nice if they could add a fridge with some beverages.

Comfortable room next to the station and good location for all major attractions by 10 minute walk. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby as well. Our room had all the facilities required, check in was easy and staff were very friendly. The only negative was that throughout our stay there was a buzzing sound which was constantly heard from our bedroom on the 4th floor which made sleeping a bit of a problem. Not entirely sure if this is some sort of generator, fortunately we were only staying for 2 nights otherwise this would have been a major issue.

Perfect location near the train station, nice if you have an early flight to catch. We arrived before check-in opened but if you registered on their website you got free early check-in. The hotel didn't offer any surprises, small room and tiny bathroom, but you already knew that when you booked. Perfect.

Well positioned hotel within easy walking distance of city centre. Plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants right outside including a little sainsburys and M&S food at the train station. Room was very clean with all you could need. On first arrival, we thought it was really quiet, which it was until we tried going to sleep and then realised the air con unit/ some kind of mechanical noise from above the room was actually quite noisy. Nonetheless, the staff were all very friendly, helpful and the breakfast was plentiful and delicious, in pleasant surroundings. Would definitely stay again if coming to Cambridge. We had dinner in the bar/ restaurant next door which was also very good.

As far as hotels go, this place is excellent for its close proximity to the train station in Cambridge. Quirky interiors, welcoming and friendly check in staff. Rooms are clean, bright, and comfortable. Definitely recommend the Ibis for a Cambridge stay.

This hotel is right by the train station so very conveniently located with buses very close to take you to the city centre or a 1 mile walk into town. There’s a handy Sainsbury’s next door and some eateries. The staff was helpful on check in. We didn’t eat at the hotel. The room was small (we were 3 people) but clean. The bathroom was cramped and weirdly shaped (and whitewashed) like the cylindrical toilets on trains. Our sink was stained which was a bit off-putting. But other than that, cheap and cheerful and so if you’re looking for a budget stay, you can’t really go wrong.

A welcoming, easy stay, with a great cafe and a great room. A lovely touch was being given a flower for international women's day. I actually ate in the cafe, first time ever at a hotel cafe. Lovely welcoming staff, and a really comfy, well designed room. Good value, too, given I booked last minute.
