Great rooms for a short stay with a comfy bed and a hot shower. We were facing other rooms instead of the street so it was quiet. Paid for wifi, the connection kept dropping every now and again, and you need to connect to wifi every time you come to the hotel, slightly annoying but only a minor thing. Recommended... More

The hotel was situated very close to Cardiff Central and right next to all of the nightlife. We were given a room on the second floor, on the inner side, away from the road. The view wasn't much but it was quieter. The room was immaculately clean. The bathroom was your standard Travelodge bathroom (tiny bath, more of a trickle... More

I have just returned after staying here for 1 night last night. As i was only using the room for sleeping after a night on the town i really didn't expect much. The room was cold and didn't seem to have any heating on for this time period of the year. The room was average, basic and bare. The bed... More

My wife any stayed there on Monday 28th November. Walking to the room we noticed that every piece of the carpets seemed to be stained and the woodwork is battered. Not a good sign. We dropped our stuff in the room anf headed off without checking things. BIG MISTAKE. When we got back to the room we noticed a strange... More

Stayed at the travellodge central for a rugby game in Cardiff. Booked the room in March for £165. Price was super inflated as the next day it was back on the website for £40! No difference in room for the price! Total rip off!

I arrived, got my key and got told where my room was. My room was clean and was alright. There was no messing about. Straight to the point service. I would have liked to have a plug socket near the bed to charge my phone, but that's being picky.

This hotel is in a fab location, but if you have a room facing st Mary's street (which we did) the noise level from the clubs and pubs was just unbearable and it goes on until the small hours. So if you want not much sleep then this is for you. On a positive note our room was lovely and... More

A typical, well located Travelodge in the heart of Cardiff. Ideal for rugby matches & well located for both the stadium & the numerous bars & restaurants of Cardiff. Good helpful staff, with a relatively modern styling.

I booked the hotel knowing its location may be noisy - on a busy street and near the station so expected some noise. I was traveling for work (a charity) so have a budget and an overnight stay saved me a £70 train fare home and 9 hours of travel time between my various appointments over two days. Having been...
