Stayed for 2 nights recently for a concert, the first night was very, very expensive for what it is, only chose there as it was the cheapest place around as everywhere put their prices up. The second night was so much cheaper and it is clear to see why. Location is ok, staff were great but room was not great at all. Toilet is basically a tiny cupboard, shower is actually in the room with just a frosted piece of glass that has a hole in so you can see in there anyway. Bed and especially pillows were AWFUL, and only 2 plug sockets nowhere near the mirrors. Yes it’s budget but surely some standards still need to be met?

Interesting place, very close from downtown and city center but it definitely needs to be refreshed. For now, it's not worth to pay so much for that place. I think some ibis are better for a lower price (Edinburgh or Kiev in Europe for example).

Review collected in partnership with Accorhotels.com
I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. It was very clean and modern. There was plenty of staff on hand who couldn't be more helpful. Excellent location, just around the corner from the main shops and restaurants. Dining area was excellent which we used when we got in late at night and for the breakfast which was reasonably priced. My only issue was there was one electrical socket in the room and none by the bed. Bedding was very clean and the bed comfortable. Parking was expensive so I parked on the road behind. Would definitely consider an Ibis Budget again if it's like this.

Ignore all the bad reviews, it’s a budget hotel that is a room for the night. If you want more services or a better room go elsewhere and pay more. Yes the rooms are small and there is no tea making facilities in the room but that’s not a problem. The staff were really helpful and polite, checking in was easy. You have to prebook and pay for car parking. It’s a short 10min walk into the centre of Cardiff. Pizza is served 24h for £8, great when you get in after a night out,

Clean and comfortable hotel in a good location within walking distance to town. Pretty basic but expected, breakfast is good. Most of the staff were friendly. The only problem we had was with the room. There was three of us staying in a room, the bed on the top bunk was not made just sheets supplied so we had to make it ourselves. The bathroom however is a bit odd. The shower has frosted glass around it which you can clearly see an outline of the person in there, there is also a rather large hole in the glass door which if you were the right height you could potentially see something you don’t want to. There is also no where to get changed in private besides the small toilet which is seperate from the shower. As we were friends travelling together who aren’t close enough to be seeing each other naked. Probably perfect for couples... Other than that stay was good.
