Very basic hotel. Good central location to bars and restaurants and shops. Bed are very comfortable, pillows aren't. To watch TV you have to pay extra. Could do with a refurb to add an extra touch or two. The room on a whole reminded me of the inside of a static caravan (plastic and basic)

I stayed at this hotel in April 2013 whilst visiting some friends in the city. Excellent value booking - always book on internet for best rates. The presentation of the room is as expected for a budget hotel. Bathroom was pod like but decent size and great shower. Room was a good size with a tv, kettle etc. The hotel is few minutes from the railway station and shopping / nightlife areas areas. Hotel not bad all in all, maybe a little more attention from the cleaners with dusting and would have been perfect

This hotel is much better than the budget hotels and not much more expensive. Check in was smooth, customer sevice was great and the bed was sublime. the only sticking point was that we ordered Les Misrables on the TV and it wouldn't work. We were offered to move room (it was 1:30am - nah thanks) but it was sorted.

The Ibis Cardiff is a centrally located hotel near the Motorpoint Arena and close to the railway station making it easy to visit Cardiff Bay. The hotel has a nice reception/bar, adequate breakfast (although we had a deal in which it was included in the price, I would be hesitant to spend £8 per person per day for it) and the bed was comfortable, although the hotel really would benefit from a full refurbishment as it does look tired in places. Would stay again however.

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.
