“simple but good”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

The bed was very good, the room and the bathroom were clean. Toilet and shower are separated (good point).
The location is ok, 10 minutes walk from the centre and if you are to lazy to go out they have some snacks (I did not try them so I can not say if it is good or not).
The only bad point is that you have to pay for internet and the wifi is not in the room.

Me and my partner stayed here for four nights at the end of November, and this hotel is perfect for people who dont expect the Ritz! Very clean and modern, very close to centre (perfect for nights out on the tiles) and only £3 per 24hrs to park your car (couldn't get any cheaper! !) Infact we liked it that much that we are returning tomorrow for the weekend! Thanks ibis!

stayied here on boxing Night. Rooms good. excellant location. Receptionist was fantastic. A very smart young man, called James. He was very helpful and dealt with a number of 'difficult' guests in a very calm way. He is an asset to your hotel. We will return

...but seriously, when you pay 25 a night its cheaper than a backpackers. It seriously is value for money and for that reason Id recommend it undoubtedly. You get to ur room, look around and realise that its got everything a swanky hotel has got, just without any frills. Any.

Does the job and would recommend it fully for those on a budget or for those that are travelling or even just out in cardiff for a night!

I stayed here back in August for one night when went to see michael mcintrye- we paid less than £15 and you get what you pay for.
Stayed in the room with 2 other friends and if your not comfortable with eachother could have been very awkward as rooms are very small with the shower actually in the same room.
However it was a fantastic location with the centre literally a 5 minute walk away but still very quiet with hardly any noise.
Would recommend if you are ona budget and don't plan on staying in the room for too long! :)
