We stayed one night in early September whilst we went to a show at the Principality Stadium. We'd tried to book the regular Ibis but for some reason they do not have rooms which can accommodate 2 adults and a child. The Ibis Budget can, however, so we gave it a try. We were lucky enough to get a parking...

We've just booked in and we are so happy about this place starting with one of the staff members by the name Claudio who is the most friendly receptionist we've ever met and continuing with the room which is very clean and cosy.

A good basic hotel, 10 minutes walk from the city centre. Very clean and tidy, staff very helpful. Car parking a bargain at £4 per night. Just a tip, there are lights built into the handrails in the bedrooms. These are operated but a switch above the bed and it's not obvious. No restaurant but a selection of drinks and...

After reading some negative reviews on here we were thinking we made a mistake on booking this hotel. Don't expect luxury, which is fair enough because of the price we paid. But expect a nice clean hotel with decent customer service.

“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!”

  • My room (3002) had a large and comfortable double bed and a small, flat screen television.
