My friend and I decided to have a night out in Cardiff and we chose to stay at Bubbas Place as was cheap and nearby city centre. There was two good reviews and two bad ones so thought we would take a chance as we only wanted a place to crash after a night out. Upon arrival, the outside of...

They are in the process of repairing and re-furnishing the place, sadly though we didnt get one of these rooms and were left with a very uncomfortable...

Apart from the staff being really friendly I can't say anything good about this place other than the location. Furniture was falling apart, no tv, hairdryer, not even a toilet roll holder. Damp on the ceilings and walls, disgusting shower head, carpet tiles that slide about, a constant smell of damp and cigarettes and very thin walls. I could go...

Decor and building fabric apauling but surprisingly clean and service friendly. Other perks include a reasonable breakfast and a 24 hour bar.

There is constant hot water, TV, tea and coffee making...
