    Easy to reach from railway station (10 minutes by walk) or by road. Nice location in walking distance from Cardiff Bay and the city center. Warm welcome and very helpful staff. I would come back if in the region again.

    Can you request which floor you wish to stay in and how far of a walk is it from central station? Thank you

    I believe you need to be a member of Accor Hotel Group to request a floor level but you can request high or low only I suppose. The city centre is walking distance.

    Actually I can't remember but as a rule it's normally around £10, often if you pay for breakfast the night before it is cheaper. We found that at several places.
