“Ideal for a nite away”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

The hotel was in a great location within walking distance to the shops, bars & clubs.The staff were friendly & welcoming also very helpful with providing us information as to where to go ect. me & my two friends wanted somewhere cheap & cheerful & we definitely chose a very good hotel. it may only be basic but for one nite you cant go wrong, the room was clean & tidy & the bed was extremely comfortable. we did not have breakfast as we planned to get up later then wen it was being served however there is always snacks & drinks to hand. through out the day trains were running which was noisy but in all fair ness they didnt run during the nite. over all i would recommend this hotel but as i say dont expect more then what you pay for because this is a budget hotel if you want luxury you would have to look elsehwere but there was a hair dryer provided plus a small wardrobe space for your clothes.& towels.

Just a quick one as not a lot to say:

+ve
- Newish and clean all around, being part of the accor group you get your points
- Rooms were big enough and well equipped
- We paid £60 on a busy weekend so very happy with that
- Service was always good apart from a slight issue that their systems don't seem to cope with internet bookings all that well
- Its 5mins walk from Cardiff central station and ideal for any events in Cardiff

-ve
- The major negative here is noise, if you're staying on a Saturday as we did then the nearby nightclub will be playing very loud music until 4am, kept me awake and for that reason alone I would recommend against staying here earlier in the week.

Room Tip: Front of the hotel might have been quieter....

We stayed at the Ibis on Sat 23rd to attend a concert in the Motorpoint Arena, literally next door !! a great base to explore the city with several great resteraunts within mins away from hotel. Our room was spotlessly clean and tidy ,and considering we were next to the main road ,did not hear a thing during the night,very good sound proofing. Not a big area for breakfast in the morning but as we know the city and are local walked into the centre for breakfast, although it did look quite nice for around £8. A great budget hotel , fabulous staff .

While the location is excellent and the room very comfortable, the reception area doubles up as the dining area for breakfast. This was not to my liking, and the breakfast, which was unattended in my time there, was very basic indeed, and not at all enjoyable.
The room telephone didn't work (neither did my mobile), which meant that I had to go to Reception to make telephone calls. Most inconvenient!
On the whole, not an hotel I would go back to, especially @ £80.00 per night, which was definately over priced

It was a nice stay: the room was clean and comfortable, the staff very kind and helpful. The kettle in the room is a blessing after a cold, windy day outside. And it means a lot that you can store your luggage after you check out and pick it up later.

If I may suggest, though: in this day and age, wi-fi internet access in all rooms should be a standard and not a part of a 10 pound per day movie/music channels package that one may not want or need. Otherwise, Ibis Cardiff is good value for money. I recommend it.

Spent 1 night in the Ibis and had a great time, staff were professional, helpful and friendly nothing was to much trouble, rooms were clean, modern and had everything you need, beds very comfortable , right in Cardiff town centre across the road from bus stop and 5mins walk from train station, breakfast was good with a great selection, we also eat from the bar menu which was excellent, we have stayed in a number of Ibis hotel across England and have never been disappointed , would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and will certainly be using Ibis again
