This is a great little budget hotel, close to the city centre. For the price you pay, you really couldn't ask for any more. The staff are friendly and professional and happy to assist with anything you need. Very plesantly surprised that there was free tea and coffee in the lobby. Rooms are basic (as expected for such a great...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

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,...

I've stayed here twice before, when it had a different name, and I was very happy with the place. But this time as soon as I entered my room I saw there was no kettle, cups etc! I was shocked, as I always need tea, and had actually brought some teabags with me in case there weren't enough provided. So...

Hotel ibis in Cardiff Center is a good place for a short stay, especially if you do not plan to spend much time indoors - it is a bit basic, but also quite modern on the other hand - all you need is supplied. Even it is in a busy location - between two roads and railway - sound isolation...

The Ibis Budget Cardiff Central is exactly what it says on the tin - a small, modern, purpose-built, low-rise budget hotel situated just south of Cardiff's buzzing and vibrant city centre, a short walk from the bars and clubs of the Waterfront. I paid GBP 69 for my one-night stay in March, 2017 which was for my room only. For...

We happened to stay on the night where two stag parties and a school group where staying.. In the middle of the night the stags ran up and down the corridors banging on the doors and screaming which woke everyone up including the school group which decided to join in.... Staff did nothing!

Paid £58. The room is cute but extremely basic. But it is a budget hotel. Coffee and tea is free downstairs so makes up for the fact it's not in the room. Shower is good but again very basic. Quite noisy. Helpful staff. Parking is a nightmare. If you don't get in and keep your space. Had to park on...

Stayed at this hotel about 5 times now. Always a good pick when I'm going to a gig in Cardiff. It's clean, cheap & basic for what you need for 1 or 2 nights. They serve 24hr pizzas which are nice & cheap.
