I usually like the IBIS Budget Brand, as they offer basic comfort and clean rooms for an O.K. price, but I was disappointed by their property in Cardiff. First of all, GBP 45 for a one nights stay w/o breakfast was quite expensive for the night we had. Our room was overlooking a street which was quite noisy during nighttime,... More

Myself and my friends visited this hotel to celebrate my friends hen party. I'd read the reviews and was a little worried as to what we had signed ourselves up to Like with everyone this was only a place to get our heads down at the night Upon arrival the reception staff were so friendly and welcoming. They even drew... More

This extremely tiny, spartan room was even smaller than it looked in the pictures. It was difficult staying here with our grown daughter when we realized that the glass shower door opened directly into the room, and the only place she could sit other than in the top bunk was the one plastic stool. What was truly outrageous about the... More

I enjoyed my stay at this Ibis. Compared to another Ibis I was greeted politely and quickly allocated my room. The room is very compact and the shower does open up into the bedroom. The floor wasn't the cleanest near to the shower entrance and bathroom. Overall, not bad - would return but improvements could be made.

I spent a week long visit (19th July-24th July 2015) at the Ibis Budget and have to say it was AWESOME!! I was greeted by the friendliest and politest staff and everything was explained (even though this was my 3rd visit!) Every time I went down for a query, the staff were more than happy to help and have a... More

Stayed here for 1 night with my partner. We were expecting worse for a budget hotel but it was very clean and pleasant enough. The rooms were basic but had everything we needed, the only thing they didn't have was a hair dryer so I would advise taking your own. Sophie on the desk was helpful and friendly upon arrival...

Yes, this is truly a budget hotel. Our "triple" room - one double plus bunk - was actually a combined single bedroom and bathroom. The shower door (not the bathroom door!) opens into the bedroom. It was at times physically impossible for the three of us to maneuver around each other and our luggage. A cell like this for £40... More

Every now and then you come across something that calls itself one thing but in reality is something different not so IBIS Budget -it is exactly what its name implies. The rooms are purely functional with every luxury stripped out. There is no tea or coffee facilities not even a kettle, no shampoos just a small bar of soap supplied.... More

Ibis Budget Cardiff offers excellent value for money. You get all the basics + free WiFi. The rooms are very basic and cheap looking, but functional. Staff at reception were very helpful to us.
