Just a 10-minute riverside walk from the heart of Cambridge's city centre, this charming guest house offers free WiFi, free parking subject to availability and comfortable accommodation at great-value rates.

Lantern House has a convenient location, just a few hundred metres from the River Cam and about a mile (1 miles) from the city centre. The Grafton Shopping Centre is just a 10-minute walk away.

The hotel offers a range of accommodation. En suite bathrooms and rooms with shared bathrooms are both available. All rooms have TVs.

While the Lantern does not serve any meals including breakfast, a range of restaurants are found half a kilometre away. Many of Cambridge's famous colleges are just a short walk away and the heart of the city can be easily reached on foot, by crossing one of the beautiful greens. Regular buses are available nearby for those who prefer not to walk.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 8.2 for a two-person trip.

Lantern House has been welcoming Booking.com guests since 17 Sept 2009.
