Had a brill time, was really easy to get to, plenty of parking and spotlessly clean! It was a short walk through bute park (which is gorgeous) to the town centre! We stayed in the Picasso, definitely worth the money and had a lovely room full of character!

I visited the 'Bach' apartment with a friend of mine the night before going on holiday in order to be in closer proximity to where I needed to get to. I stayed in another of these apartments during the Summer and was suitably impressed particularly with the rate of the room and so decided to try it again. I am... More

Booked the Wagner studio apartment for my wife and I as a base for a one night Saturday stop over for the Wales v Italy game. When we arrived in the private car park at 11am after our 4 hour journey, a quick phone call to Rhys, the most accommodating owner and he advised me that our room was ready... More

The room and location were great. However despite numerous emails advising me re location, check in procedure etc I was not informed that significant decorating was taking place during my stay. Whilst I didnt mind the initial appearance of the apartments looking terrible due to paint everywhere, no carpets etc I could not stand the constant smell of paint or... More

I stayed here for 2 nights recently and found the accommodation to be clean, comfortable and great value for money. The self check-in was easy and the management were really helpful from start to finish. I would definitely recommend staying here.

I recently came home to Wales to visit family. I moved to Qatar 3 years ago and didn't want to come and stay with my mum and dad as am used to having my own space. These apartments were close to home and a brilliant location for shopping and going out with my friends that I haven't seen for ages!!... More

Oh dear. The hallway promised well but this tiny (Dali) 'studio' is really basic. No table to work / eat at, no hooks in bathroom and nowhere to put your wet towels. Tiny sofa faces door (not TV) and is up against dustbin. It's probably ok if you need a clean place to land for a night but really unsuitable... More

I used to stay at these apartments a year ago when in Cardiff on business. I loved the apartments and found that they were brilliant for me. A real home from home. The only thing that let them down at the time was the hallways, which were looking a little tired. This didn't affect me however as the apartments are... More

It sounds a good proposition—cheap apartments and studios in a nice part of Cardiff (ps. I recommend Fish at 85 for somewhere nice to eat: http://www.fishat85.co.uk/). But there are two big drawbacks to staying at the Artisan Quarter. First, the studios are not quite a nice as they look in the photos, which of course is a familiar problem; but... More
