Great place to stay
Excellent in many ways: friendly and professional staff, great location, stylish and new, delicious breakfast and access to spa included, when the weather permits they have a fantastic bar on the terrace. I have stayed at the varsity several times and have always been very pleased.

Wonderful modern hotel in middle of Cambridg
Room was small, but had a splendid view of Cambridge; one wall of our room was a large plate glass window. Service was outstanding. Location in mid-Cambridge was great.

Absolutely no complaints. Clean room, great staff and yummy breakfast! We really enjoyed our stay, I would definitely return to The Varsity. Also, it's DEFINITELY worth paying for the valet parking service!

Excellent4.0 / 5
I don't get the negative comments. Great property
Great hotel. Amazing location, very comfortable, and good amenities. Amazing rooftop, and the included breakfast (while buffett only) was very perfect to start the day. It didn't bother me so much, but there are rooms that don't have a view.... and when there's no view, they put an opaque diffusion material in the windows, so you can see the glow of light... but not the outdoors. Would have made it a bit claustrophobic for a long stay, but didn't bother me. If I go back to Cambridge, I would 100% return. No doubt.
