Bear in mind that this is a budget hotel, so you will not get more than you pay for. Thanks to the receptionist for allowing me to check in and pick up my room key at midday, as soon as I arrived in Cardiff. My room on the 4th floor was quiet and very clean, had a reasonable view from the window and (apart from shampoo) supplied all my essential needs. Although it was well laid out, two people would have found the room too small and the narrowness of the toilet might have given a larger person claustrophobia. No extra blankets or pillows were available, and no kettle, so, in order to get a hot drink, although I had bought teabags and coffee in my luggage, I'd have had to take the lift down to the lobby to help myself to the complimentary tea or coffee provided there. I didn't bother, especially as only one lift was working during the four days of my stay. I was glad to discover that I could open the window for fresh air and that the mattress was very comfortable. The shower took a very long time to produce hot water in the mornings; I think the plumbing system may need tweaking. My only real complaint is that the digital clock display on the wall mounted TV screen was so bright and blue that on my first night it kept me awake for several hours in the middle of the night. I didn't solve this problem until I had covered the clock with a piece of card which I stuck to the screen. If you are planning to stay at this hotel I recommend you pack a roll of sellotape and do the same.

Good welcome from the Reception staff. Room clean and comfortable but definitely budget. Shower clean as was separate WC. Bed was comfortable and I had a good sleep. Breakfast was a help yourself continental with a good choice with a range of hot drinks and also fruit juices. Parking cost £4.00.

I liked the complimentary welsh cakes that the receptionist handed me when I checked in. The hotel was clean and comfortable. It did take a bit of getting used to having to go downstairs to make a morning coffee as there are no tea and coffee making facilities in the room. There was no toiletries in the bathroom either but then again I guess that is why it is a budget hotel.



Stayed for 3 nights (MOn-Thurs) very clean and modern hotel - seems quite new - staff very helpful and friendly - stayed with my Daughter and had a very pleasant stay - I think all rooms are a double with single bunkbed not a problem for us but if I had been travelling with a friend would have been difficult to share the room - twin beds would have been better (was requested prior to stay) - short walk to town where there are lots of shops restaurants and pubs. Hotel provides a very good continental breakfast - choice of juices tea coffee water toast pastries and croissants cheese cold meats cereals and fruit



Stayed here on Saturday, I had treated my partner to a night away for just the two of us. The hotel had awful parking, we got the last parking space and had to pay for the privilege, if we moved the car we risked loosing the space and paying again. Once inside the hotel which incidentally cost £124.00 for one night!!! The room was the smallest double room I have ever seen, and overlooked the dingy car park. The toilet roll was like tracing paper, the room was not welcoming at all and the bed was hard as nails! The toilet was only as big as the toilet! My partners knees touched the door. The sink was in the bedroom and the shower stepped into the room.... I have seen better bedsits!! On the evening when we returned there was Irish bikers drinking alchohol in the foyer. We went in and out a couple of times to the car and they were still allowed to be noisy and drinking at 3am! The bikers were at the table by the guests coffee machine and made it really uncomfortable to even get a coffee. The staff did nothing and thought it was acceptable. I know this was supposed to be a budget hotel but for £124.00 for one night I accepted something better than a hostel for the homeless!!! Shame on you for treating your customers like this. I do NOT recommend and I will never stay there again.



Definitely a most stay hotel, the bed is comfortable and the room has more than enough space to make you feel good. Our only suggestion to this hotel is to give a bigger soap bar as the one that we were provided was too small and we were only able to use it on our first day and the breakfast needs to have more options. Although the breakfast we were given was good we would like to have more options, since we ate the same for two days.



Very helpful friendly staff great location can use the gym & spa facilities of their sister hotel next door at a discounted rate free beverage ( tea coffee) . You pay for the room not the amount of people staying some rooms can sleep 3



The hotel is around a 10-15 minute walk to the train station and city centre, the staff are friendly and the rooms are clean and tidy, although compact. There is free tea and coffee in the reception area. Not suitable for older people as there are no shops, bars or restaurants close to the hotel. Also the cost of drinks, food, and confectionary is expensive, exploiting the fact that there are no shops close by.



In line with the Ibis budget category, this is a simple but confortable hotel. The staff was very helpfull and friendly. The only issue is that it seems to be some problem with the sound insulation of the rooms. One of the nights we woke up with noises of people talking on the corridor and doors slaming. This happened just one night.



If you are looking to save the pennies then this is the place to stay, we had a Family room which was small but functional, a double bed with a bunk above which was large enough for our 17 year old Son, TV toilet & shower but no tea or coffee maker which was disappointing, although there was free use of one in the lobby for everyone to help themselves too, there was also some snacks etc & a small breakfast available on request. There was a small parking area around the back with a £4 charge per day which isnt unreasonable to be fair & if like us you walk around a lot. The Staff were helpful & friendly & the hotel was just a 5 min walk to the centre of Cardiff .

Friendly staff, efficient booking and check-in process, clean and tidy appearance. The hotel has its own car park (which is extra) and we took a travel kettle rather than rely on the in-reception vending options. A 10 minute walk to the city centre with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from made it well located. Room basic but perfectly adequate and comfortable. Skipped what looked like an underwhelming breakfast served in the foyer, for a local cafe. All in all, amazing value for the £36 we paid for a night's stay.

Good value for money. Simple clean modern room. Nice staff at reception. I wasn't aware of the £4 over night parking fee. Would happily stay there again. No breakfast but plenty of other places around town to get food.



Value for money,very clean ,would definitely stay again,good night sleep with no traffic noise,ten minute walk from city centre,not near any noisy clubs or pubs,reception clerk very friendly and very efficient and smooth check in.

This hotel is what it is. Budget, the rooms where very clean. The staff pleasant and helpful. Only 5 minutes walk from Cardiff city center, 25 minutes from Cardiff Bay. Have to pay for parking, but it is very cheap compared to the rest of Cardiff. No tea making facilities in the rooms but was available in reception.

It is basic but perfectly adequate for an overnight business trip and has the advantage of being very close to the company I visit. Rooms are always clean and the staff have been very helpful. I would say it is just out of the town centre but close enough.



the staff upon arrival were helpful and very polite, our room was spotless and comfy (never had a bad stay there). Phoned to upgrade to early check in due to concert doors opening earlier than original time, We arrived earlier than actual check in time and were given room key with no problem at all. will be booking again.

This was our fourth stay while visiting family. The location is excellent being on the edge of the city centre. It's easy to walk in to eat or visit the museum or castle. The rooms are basic but excellent value.

I stay regularly at the IBIS Budget Hotel in Cardiff. It is very conveniently situated, excellent value for money and the staff are always warm and friendly. For a business trip facilities work well for me and it is short walk into Cardiff Centre or to the Bay.

Hotel not what we expected for the price. We selected a family room that was a joke! this room was smaller than a double. The bathroom/shower was just a cubicle in the corner of the room and the cleanliness was not good either. I would certainly not recommend staying in this hotel in Cardiff.



We stayed here for 1 night while visiting my daughter, we were pleasantly surprised by this hotel as its classed as a budget hotel, a lot better than we were expecting, very clean , great rooms, friendly helpful staff, free tea in the restaurant, free WiFi for 24 hours. 10 min walk to the city centre, quiet too, We will definitely be staying here again in the summer. I would recommend this hotel, don't be put off by the word budget and the cheap price, its worth more,.10/10
