The Portland Arms, Cambridge
Excellent4.0 / 5
Clean, comfortable, no frills.
On arrival asked to pay. I assumed I had paid via The room was very clean and though simple was comfortable. I was not surprised by the bar noise but after closing it was quiet until the morning traffic started. This was perfectly adequate for our simgle night stopover.

Traffic noise
Hotel is located on a very busy street, so lots of traffic noise all night. Stayed two nights, no servicing of the room after the first night. Part of a pub, no breakfast offered. No private bathroom, but the bathrooms were very clean. Considering the low rate, the room was quite acceptable. You get what you pay for.
