the ONLY way to stay in cardiff. 5* hotel quality with so much more at 3* cost. the apartments are extremely well furnished, spacious and right in the heart of the Bay but only 5 mins from the city centre.
i would never use a hotel in cardiff again, providing i could get an apartment at quayside.
a space in the city make everything so easy from booking to checking out - SUPERB

Room Tip: the one beds are ample for 2 people

I have stayed with A Space In The City on a few occasions with my girlfriend and we have never encountered a problem with them. The rooms are always clean and tidy with a lovely modern decor. I have also stayed with like for like competitors in the same area who are slightly cheaper but there always seems to be a problem such as the hobs on the cooker not working or the heating. It's best to pay that little extra and know that you are going to have a trouble free weekend and that's why I will continue to use I have stayed with your company on a few occasions with my girlfriend and we have never encountered a problem with yourselves.

My wife and I had booked to stay at another appartment in Cardiff but due to last minute problems, we were transferred to the Quayside Appartments. How lucky we were ! The 2 bed Appartment was spotless, well provisioned and of a very high standard. Being right in the centre of the Bay made it very handy for dining out at the nearby Mermaid Quay restaurants and also for all the attractions the area has to offer.
No onsite parking, but that was no big deal as the multi storey carpark is only a 2 minute walk away and on leaving after our stay, it was easy to pull up right outside the appartments to load up.
Thoroughly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have a small balcony.

I booked (for myself, my daughter and another parent) separate to, but was there with, the Australian Judo team, so saw several different 2-bedroom apartments - all were spacious, well furnished, comfy beds, good bathrooms, good heating, well equipped kitchens (incl dishwasher). Mini-Sainsburys and Tesco Express within 1/2-1min walk, 6-7 min by car to large grocery store, plenty of restaurants & takeaway nearby (tho I didn't eat in any of them). The car park, while off-site, was only a 3 min walk. I was checking out on Wed morning but not leaving for London until the evening and they were happy to organise that I could keep the car park access card until I left since no-one was coming in to the apartment that day. My apartment (#7) had broadband wireless modem-router internet - given the wrong access key but they sorted it out within an hour or so. I had a small balcony with a view across the plaza to the Millennium Centre (good tourist information shop) - would have been lovely in summer! Bus stop in front of the plaza to get into the city centre - 5 minutes. They had seperate bins/bags for recyclables, food waste and general waste - first time I have stayed in an apartment-hotel that did that - excellent!. If I was in Cardiff another time I would certainly look at staying here again.

Room Tip: Some of the apartments currently only have dongle internet access, but they said they are fitting mo...

After our daughter spent 3 years in Cardiff we fell in love with the city. It is small enough to get about but cosmopolitan enough to give variety . We happened upon A Space in the City website and booked a studio apartment for the week-end. What a pleasant alternative to the usual small hotel or B&B. The company were in contact to check our travel needs, gave clear instructions for key pick-up and directions. The studio was well equipped, heating had been activated ahead of arrival and the location was perfect for the bay. Cost was very reasonable and we shall be back. We look forward to the company spreading its operation to other cities and we'll be there!

Room Tip: The Studio apartment is perfect for a weekend but there are 1 & 2 bedroom available .

My 2 young daughters and I have recently enjoyed 2 separate stays at these apartments, both of which were without fault. The 2 bedroomed apartment was of an excellent standard throughout and was large enough for us to enjoy space apart when needed, and was also comfortable enough for us to relax and eat together as well. The location is superb for individuals, couples and families alike. I would stay there again without hesitation.
