We stayed in the SACO apartments this weekend whilst visiting family. The apartments were excellent. Very clean and had everything we needed. Welcome lack was a nice touch with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, sugar, milk and two bottles of water. Highly recommend.

We stayed in one of these apartments for a 2 night weekend break. Having read other reviews I had requested to be located towards the back of the building to avoid road noise. Our ground floor apartment was located down the side alley and not through the main building but it felt secure and it was well lit and even... More

Great location, close to Pontcanna, the park, and the city centre. The apartments are well looked after - ours was impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. However, the heating didn't seem to work particularly well and those big, high ceilinged and bay windowed Victorian rooms don't do a good job of retaining what little output those storage heaters generated. When it... More

After booking this apartment and paying an inflated price we arrived in Cardiff after a very long drive. We were supposed to check in any time after 4pm but we didnt arrive until 7pm. As soon as we walked into the property it was clear that the place had not been cleaned after the previous guests had left - it... More

this is my third stay in SACO Cardiff - my apartments keep getting better & very touched by the personal service in what could be quite a soulless experience. Spotlessly clean - even a written apology to me from the caretaker regarding a stain in the carpet which I struggled to find. Everything is very spacious, fresh, modern & uncluttered.... More

Lovely apartment on the beautiful Cathedral road in the heart of Cardiff. We stayed here in April and it met our needs though with a few enhancements this place has the potential to be excellent. It is minimal in terms of admin people/reception, though the apartment and premises is clean and tidy with everything you would expect in a modern... More

We travel abroad quite frequently and prefer to stay in self catering apartments as it gives us the independence to eat out or in whatever we choose. Never before have we experienced such wonderful self catering accommodation, it was spotlessly clean (including the cream carpets) had absolutely all utensils required, plenty of cupboard space, a dishwasher and washing machine all...
