The Varsity Hotel Hotel

Cambridge, UK

In a city full of overpriced hotels geared at international tourists, Cambridge’s Varsity is a modern, comfortable and good-value setup which couldn’t be better located if it tried. On the periphery of Midsummer Common (and five minutes’ walk from Daniel Clifford’s two-star Midsummer House), you can stroll into the heart of town in the time it takes to brew a cup of coffee. The basic rooms are small but well equipped, where a recent refurbishment saw excellent shower facilities installed throughout.

Doubles from £155.
