“So much better than staying in a hotel”
Reviewed 23 November 2010

Stayed with ASITC from March to November 2010, and cannot recommend it more highly as an alternative to staying in hotels.
Prior to working in Cardiff I had spent almost one year working in York, living out of a suitcase in various hotels. Using serviced apartments in Cardiff was much more comfortable and gave me freedom to organise my days and evenings the way I wanted and relax in comfort.
When my wife accompanied me for the occasional week, she was able to have much more flexibility than just staying in a hotel room.
The team at ASITC were always helpful and responded to any requests very efficiently and the apartments themsleves were well furnished, clean and the locations were fine for all my needs

Great people couldn't be more helpful, and loved the apartment and Cardiff.. Loved the view over the river, (glass needs cleaned) to see better. Pool good, location excellent, could walk everywhere. Can't fault this lot, would recommend to anyone. Thank you for a great holiday. 1 bed apartment overlooking river.

Second time visitor in Cardiff Bay, and each and every time, booked through a spaceinthecity and stayed at Century Wharf. Location is fantastic, great views of the bay, local restaurants only a few minutes away, and the city centre not too much farther. Century Wharf, for me, is home away from home. I'm not much of a hotel person, so for me, serviced apartments are the ideal accommodation. Clean rooms, Tesco, Asda, only around the corner, and the area itself seems safe (I tend to do a lot of late night running). All in all, another pleasant stay.

We recently stayed with A Space in the city at Century Wharf, we booked direct with the company and the girl who took the reservation was very informative and proffesional. We found this reasurring as had a bad experience through another company.

After making the booking we recieved full email confirmation within minutes, with directions and instructions on how to collect keys. After a long journey we called the number given on arrival and were promptly met by a friendly man who showed us to our allocated parking and even helped my husband with the bags! On showing us into the apartment the man showed us around and explained how things work and how to access the leisure facilities (small but very clean and well equipped).

The accommodation was superb, we had a booked a 1 bedroom apartment and this had fantastic views over the river with a balcony (shame about the weather!). The furnishings in the apartment were of a very high standard with all the basics supplied. Bear in mind these are self catering apartments, however a starter supply of toilet roll, tea/coffee/milk was supplied.

The location is just what we wanted, about a 5-10 minute walk to restaurants in Cardiff Bay and around 5 minutes on the bus into the centre, you can walk into the centre of Cardiff in around 20 minutes (we were told) but opted for the bus due to the disasterous weather! There is plenty to do around and about and the facilties are well looked after.

Overall I would give these apartments 10/10! The service from this company was second to none and nothing was too much trouble (even supplied us with maps to the swimming pool and recommended some good restaurants). All the information you could need was supplied in the apartment.

We look forward to our return visit in a few months which is already booked.

Excellent service!! The apartment was in a great location with a view over the water. We had our 9 month old daughter with us, so a spacious apartment was important to us! Cot & cot bedding - great quality!!

Just one minor problem, the taxi number in the information pack was wrong, but after speaking to the guest manager our problem was soon resolved! Really enjoyed, looking forward to another visit in Cardiff!!!

Booked a single bedroom apartment thru the web site with no issues, after a long flight from the US the staff met us as scheduled and showed the apartment and the facilities. Important to get a reserved parking space as Parking in this facility is difficult if not impossible without it. Apartment was clean and well presented. The bed could have been upgraded as it was not the most comfortable as we had in the past visit and as we stayed for 2 weeks this was a Pain in the back! The location was great for visiting family and the wharf has plently of cafes and Restrurants. We found that the quality of the food to big a disappointment but on the whole ok. Weather was great...
Location safe and secure and we had no issues walking around at night or security of the complex.
Staff were very helpful and enjoyed the visit.

Having stayed on most of the hotels in and around Cardiff over a prolonged period , discovering A Space in the City has been a true revalation! Great location, close to the Bay (approx 5 min walk) , well furnished, fully fitted kitchen and parking - I can't fault it. Creature comforts are not forgotten , with Tea,Coffee,Milk etc provided. For those of you who like me prefer to relax after a days work there's an onsite lesuire club (FOC) and a fully fitted kitchen. Wireless internet access is available in most of the apartments

The apartments are more spacious than many of the other developments around the bay, making them idea for short breaks.

I've stayed in numerous apartments within the development all of which have been excellent. Check-in is painless , and booking really effcient.
