“An ideal location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

We stayed here last night so that we could attend a concert at the Motorpoint Arena. The Ibis is perfectly located for the arena and the city centre and was very clean and comfortable with a warm helpfull welcome. The room was ideal and the pod like construction gave it a quirky pleasant character. The breakfast was good with good variety and choice. The only negative we had was that there was no car park on site but there was plenty of choose close at hand. The hotel pointed us to one that cost us five pound rather than the eighteen of some other parks that were closer. We would definitely use this hotel again.

Stopped here for 2 nights with wife and her family. Location fantastic with everything in close proximity. Very friendly staff, couldn't do enough for us. Small problem in the shower room sorted quickly and efficiently. Had booked through Accor website so got a good discount. Room was spacious, all tea and coffee as required. Lucky possibly it was midweek so no noise from pubs/restaurants on the corner. All in all great value and friendly staff.

Nice staff, very clean BUT will never stay again. They charge 9 pounds for internet access! Even the most podunk B & B has wifi! Bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. Breakfast was also fine.

Had a night in Cardiff for business, and the Ibis Cardiff in city centre was a fantastic value. 5 minute walk from a cinema & casino and only a 10 minute walk to St Marys St. For only 32 quid, you can't beat the value. Would definitely stay again.

The hotel is in an excellent location between central station and Queen Street Station. Checking in was easy, the staff were very friendly. There is someone at the reception desk 24/7. They checked we were ok with a first floor room, excellent.
The room was a good size, bed is an excellent size and very comfortable. Equipped with kettle, tea, coffee, tv etc all good although the mugs were very dusty, as were some other areas.
Breakfast is very expensive so we decided to walk into town for breakfast each day. The room itself was an excellent price when booked just over a month in advance.
Would definitely recommend.

As you'd expect from Ibis; clean, comfy rooms. A nice central location in Cardiff. Everything you'd need and friendly staff. Not the place for a romantic getaway perhaps, but if you just need a room for the weekend (as we did) then you can't go too far wrong.

Stayed here at the end of the year after a works party. I found the hotel very clean and the staff polite. The rooms are basic but very clean. The location of the hotel is ideal for people that need to be close to the centre of Cardiff. Parking is available and cheaper than the extortionate places in the city. I would stay again.
