Everything you would expect from an ibis hotel the rooms were very clean staff were polite. Beds were comfortable and inviting the room also had a lovely shower but no shower gel or shampoo which I would have expected. They had a free tea and coffee machine near the reception which was nice but you had to pay for parking...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 February 2017

We couldn't fault this hotel. It's basic, as the title suggests, but it's great value. It is clean, friendly and has very cheap (£4 a day) on-site parking within a short stroll of the city centre. I was worried, after reading reviews, about being able to park but, arriving early afternoon on a Friday, I had no problems at all,...

Quite pleased with the place, compact and cosy. Room was small but clean. No drink making facility in the room but not a problem as all available downstairs, you could help yourself. Also microwave for use so it's so handy to heat up food taken/bought from somewhere else on the go. Good location as similar distance to the waterside and...

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...

Stayed 3 nights - Room was basic and a shower in the room and separate small toilet. The room window wasn't sealed very well so I could hear the vehicles along the near by main road. The onsite car parking arrangements poor and small with a lack of spare spaces. If you are lucky to have to get a parking...

Its a cheap no-frills hotel. As long as you expect that, no one will be disappointed. Great location (10 minute walk to Cardiff city centre, 20-25 minute walk to Cardiff bay / Mermaid Bay). The room was spotless. It was small but still a decent size. Came with two medium sized towels, two pillows, a bar of soap, loo rolls,...

“The North side is next to Tyndall Street which is a busy main road, but the view from the South side is nothing to write home about!”
  • There was a shower cubicle and wash basin in my room with a separate (small) lavatory
  • My room (3002) had a large and comfortable double bed and a small, flat screen television.
