Hilton Cambridge City Centre - Cambridge
Up to the Hilton standard
The room was furnished tastefully and in good condition. Hairdryer, iron, safe, tea making facilities provided. No mini fridge being the only negative, although the bell boy did suggest asking concierge to send one up. Double beds were very comfy and we could push it together to form a super super king! This was ideal for our family of 3, ensuring that our 2.5 year old toddler didn't fall out of the bed. Soundproofing wasn't great, corridor noises e.g. doors slamming and tipsy guests were easily heard in the quiet of the night. Also the bar downstairs was loud enough to be heard from the room although only as background noise. But this wasn't enough to wake the rest of my family up, so I must be an ultra light sleeper. All in all, we still enjoyed our stay very much and will be back.
