5.1 Passable
Pros:Shower was actually hot in the morning, water pressure was good Cozy enough, radiators were on long enough to get the room to a comfortable temperature in the evening. Easy walk to downtown Cambridge, walkable to Cambridge science park.
Cons:No front desk, nowhere to leave luggage. Had to call to find out how to check in to an un-staffed accommodation. Room so narrow I could hold my arms out and almost touch the left and right walls at the same time. Dingy tablecloth over desk, felt like I needed to wash my hands after touching it. Wooden chair, no sofa or armchair (which wouldn't fit into such a tiny space anyway). TV about the size of a laptop.
