My husband found this efficiency apartment through Booking.com. The picture that showed the apartment was exactly what we got. The bed was comfortable, though being larger people it would have been nice if it had been queen size. The facilities and amenities were very nice. The wardrobe door had a really loud squeek on the right side but I didn't...

Unfortunately had booked opera for a weekend which turned out to be a rugby match one, so had to pay over the top price. That said, then had to pay whacking great (£75) fee for arriving near midnight. Also no advice on storing luggage bar an extra £20 from 11 am to 1pm. Cardiff train station currently has no left...

I was in a party of four booked by a friend who will write a separate review re. costing etc. which may have been specially high because we had foolishly fixed to visit Cardiff on a day when there was a Rugby match. That can be the only excuse for the very high price we paid. But there is no...

Nice apartment in a central location. A few niggles as the shower base was blocked and although I brought this to the managers attention, he promised to send someone to unblock it. However, it was still blocked the next time we used it. Also, considering this was a two bedroomed apartment, which sleeps four people, there were only three bath...

Hello Diane, We're sorry that the apartment wasn't quite up to your or our own high standards. There certainly appear to have been a few areas that were missed by our housekeeping team on this occasion which we apologies for. This has been fed back and rectified since your review.

Good service after booking, with a greeting text from Michael who met us at the Sainsburys Local and showed us the apartment. It was clean and had everything we needed for a weekend.

Yet another lovely stay in the Stay city apartments. Ideal location, a stones throw from some lively bars and restaurants and a lovely 10min walk into Cardiff centre. Beautifully furnished, clean and well looked after. Apartments are quiet and an ideal base for all ages.

Hello Kris, Thank you for leaving your comments, we've cleared the partially blocked shower drain having investigated this and are testing the WIFI connection to the apartment you stayed in as the signal should be stable.
