If you are looking for a luxury business hotel in Cambridge which benefits from easy access to all the charms of this historical university city, then look no further. By booking your stay at the 4 star Cambridge City Hotel, you can expect superior comfort in a great location, whether you are here for a meeting or a romantic city break. Cambridge City Hotel is just footsteps away from the famous King's College, where you can enjoy Evensong performances in the 16th century Chapel for an atmospheric end to the day.

Why not hire a punt (flat-bottomed boat) and see the city via the river Cam, passing ancient buildings and the hidden college gardens? When there's a full moon, you might prefer to take a memorable ghost boating tour, or simply use the opportunity to share a romantic bottle of sparkling wine with your loved one! The city is not just for lovers or academics, either. Shops galore await you in the winding streets, as well as upscale shopping centers.

The Grand Arcade promises sleek designer stores just a moment's walk from this deluxe East Anglia accommodation, so that you can shop until you drop before treating yourself to a well-earned break in one of the many cafés and coffee shops. Fancy a day away from the city? The Imperial War Museum at Duxford is certainly worth a visit for the regular Red Arrow air shows, and a day out at the Newmarket races may inspire you to pick a winner or two! East Anglia is renowned for its flatness, making cycling in the area a great way of exploring. Why not join the students and discover the city's delights on two wheels, or head out onto the many rural cycle routes to the charming country pubs or National Trust estates, such as Anglesey Abbey only 7 miles away (11 km)?

An outstanding venue for meetings!

You can expect premier service from the experienced staff and concierge at Cambridge City Hotel, who will do everything within their power to make your holiday or business trip a thoroughly first-class experience. Do you have a meeting to organize? Cambridge City Hotel offers standards of the highest degree. Guests will find 4 meeting rooms of varying sizes to enhance any boardroom gathering, conference or seminar. Banquet facilities and event catering are also available.

Excellent state-of-the-art equipment and presentation support ensures quality throughout your event, and the hotel also offers the customized services of dedicated business professionals to assist with your requirements. Complimentary wireless Internet access is available throughout the hotel. Function spaces measuring 3,432 square feet (319 square meters) can be booked for important celebrations or receptions, and valet parking offers peace of mind for delegates and guests. Business guests can also take advantage of a range of available services.

A great social hotspot!

Just because you are here to work does not mean that you can't also relax. You'll find a sauna at this central Cambridge lodging to soothe you after a busy day. You can also indulge your appetite with some fantastic dishes and award-winning wines. The dining atmosphere at this Cambridge King's College hotel offers a superb venue for power lunches, intimate dinners and casual get-togethers, and a lounge bar promises an impressive range of cocktails to suit every mood.

Quinns Irish Pub is a top spot for those who are looking for a livelier ambience, and is an understandably popular choice for friends and colleagues who want to unwind in style. After great dining, you'll be sure to have a restful sleep. When you awaken feeling refreshed in the morning, you can kickstart the day with a session in the fitness room, which is equipped with the latest cardiovascular and muscle toning equipment.
