There were four of us staying in two double bed rooms having reserved them the weekend before. Once we were there we paid for our rooms and were informed that check in & out was at 12:00PM midday. We gave our luggage to the hotel who stored them in the staff room free of charge whilst we roamed Cardiff City Centre and later checked in.
The reception is open 24 hours a day and the staff are very helpful and efficient; we forgot some toiletries but after asking reception it was solved right away. The rooms themselves at first seem a little dull and quite plain. We stayed on the top third floor where we got plenty of natural light, the windows open too but there's a wire restriction which means you can't open it all the way.
The bathroom was extremely clean as was the rest of the room. The shower, toilets and sink were spotless and the floors were free from any dirt. The bathroom as a pseudo-wood floor which ensures you don't slip whilst the rest of the room has carpet. The rooms are cleaned everyday and towels replaced; the cleaners are very polite and do their job thoroughly. The air conditioning in the room was very nice and worked both morning and throughout the night.
All in all Ibis was an excellent hotel with superb staff. The only let down was that some nights it was very noisy with a bar full of people nearby. But this is solved by simply closing the window and you can no longer hear any street noise outside. I would definitely stay here again.
