“Nice enough”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Hotel was nice daytime staff were nice but night time staff were not very accommodating at all. Hotel is in a fantastic location if you like to be central and like to walk to and from the bars it's perfect. Rooms are nice enough clean and tidy bathroom is nice too.

We had a one night stay here to atend my sons graduation from Cardiff unerversity. Whilst the hotel has no car park there are ample over night stay car parks close by. I found an NCP at £6-00 for 24 hours of which I thought was cheap.
Upon arrival we went to the reception, this would be my only gripe withe the hotel is that the two receptionists could speak very little English.
Eventualy we found our room of which was very modern and spacious. The king size bed had crisp clean linen and was very comfortable.
The view from the window over the city was quite interesting watching the bustle of life go on.
A drink at the bar before we ventured out to see my sons graduation. Nice decor and I could understand the bar man.
No breakfast as we got a early dash the following day.
All in all a very nice stay.

Room Tip: Front facing as the rear overlooks a railway line

Very comfy beds, and clean bathroom.
Great location, close to shops and nightlife.
Room was very small but ok, very noisy throughout the night and in the mornings around breakfast time. Staff was lovely and helpful
Would defiantly recommend!

I stayed on a Saturday night with my son & his girlfriend & as we both have dogs I picked the Budget Ibis because they allow pets. We were very pleased with the rooms we had as they were on the ground floor (ideal when you have a dog) & close together. The rooms were clean & comfortable & the staff were friendly & helpful. It is v close to town centre & arena's so ideal for a night out to see a band or for daytime shopping. I would recommend this hotel & will definately stay again.

Difficulty checking in because the computer was down, even though I had pre booked and paid. It took about 10 minutes. Clean room and bathroom. Bedside light did not work. Comfy bed. It would be helpful to be told where to park when booking. We were told to use a good inexpensive car park. Very central location, within walking distance of everything you might want to see in Cardiff, and we left the car in the recommended car park for 24 hours for just £5. I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed at the Ibis budget hotel in Cardiff for 2 nights watching the rugby. Hotel is in a great central location, a few minutes walk to the heart of Cardiff pubs and clubs, and a short walk to the stadium. Rooms are not huge, but have just enough room for 2. Prices at all hotels in the city go to "silly money" prices when a sporting event is on, try block booking the weekends of the events before the date of the event.

Room Tip: Had no problems with our room.
