Flat 5 Cardiff
Reviewed 29 June 2015 via mobile

When I first arrived at the flat, the owner was right there waiting. I got in and it seemed very nice and spacious. The beds were clean, the kitchen was nice, and there was a delicious drink waiting in the fridge. But when nighttime rolled around, my friends and I took the pillows of of the couch with the pull-out. We noticed there was duct tape there and wondered why. Then we tried pulling out the bed. It was so hard to get out and the cushion must have ripped from it. When we finally got it out with much exertion of strength, I saw that the mattress was really thin and looked absolutely disgusting. We couldn't find any sheets near the bed or anything, and eventually found two comforters and pillows in another room - and they didn't even fit! In the morning we went to take showers and the shower was on the hot setting but it was still cold. Two of us took cold showers until one found the water heater off and it was really complicated to figure and scalding when we actually took showers. Despite these two things, our stay was pretty nice and the rooms were beautifully decorated. There were also some good movies to enjoy as well.

I hired the 2 flats so had the whole house to host my friends hen do. I was really happy that the 2 flats shared the same front door so it felt like 1 big house. The kitchen on the middle floor and living room was large enough for our group of 12 to plenty of room together. Bedding and towels were provided and there was parking on the street. There was great communication with the owner. It's close to the centre so we were able to walk in to town. Each of the bedrooms were large. Great location for a hen do or group weekend if you want to send time together and go out in town as well.

Called the day before to arrange collection of keys. So I said I might arrived after 8PM as I still don't know how well my trip will be. So the owner said ok, if I'll arrive early than that, please call his boyfriend in advance. So eventually I arrived early and called her boyfriend one hour before my arrival and he said OK. When I arrived and waited for 15mins, I call him again, and he told me is 8.15PM, What???? but he promise be to be there by 6.30PM. So I think this eat up one star out of five. The sofa bed eat up another star. As written in Booking.com, it sleeps 6 adults, two bedrooms. Well, there's one bedroom with double bed and one bedroom with 2 single beds. And the guy told me there's a 'double' sofa bed. But when I open up the sofa bed, ITS NOT EVEN A BED!!! Its just a thin Mattress and its not even double, it's 3.5 feet....only sleep one adults....Beware of this.. Others are decent. Just a decent house.

Do not stay here
The neighbours are not happy that the owner rents out the place contravening his lease.
They make life very difficult for you when you stay. They clamped our car saying we shouldn't be parking there!
There are plenty of other nicer places to stay along cathedral road, so stay there instead!
