4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

Stayed here for 1 night with a friend when going to see Grease in Wales Millennium Centre. Check in was quick and friendly. First room we had was an "accessible room" but changed this to a standard twin room. Windows lovely and big letting in plenty of light with great views across Cardiff city centre and Cardiff Bay. Everything was very clean and modern. Didn't have breakfast as wasn't included but plenty places near by to eat. Bus stop right opposite hotel so accessible to the bay. Shopping centre and night-life within minutes walk of the hotel. Also Motorpoint Arena right opposite. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor, get great views across Cardiff

Thank you so much for your feedback, particularly in relation to the bar menu. We are in the process of reviewing this and will definitely take your comments into account when doing so.

I am sorry you visited on a quiet evening, but hope you will return and experience the Filini bar on our busier evening.

This is one of the most comfortable hotels I've stayed in at this price range within the whole of Europe.

The rooms are larger than average, and the bathrooms can be described as palatial by typical European standards; they even have huge bathtubs. I found the bed to be extremely comfortable (and that was after five weeks in hotel beds!), and the room was well laid out overall. Some of the older tourists I encountered there found the hotel and its individual rooms to be a bit modern for their taste, which I think is important to note. You will definitely not experience old world charm here, but you will have a large, comfortable, and clean room.

In addition to great rooms, the hotel also has a variety of other notable features. There is free wifi access throughout the hotel. Also, this place could not be better located. It's only about a two-block walk to the main drag in downtown Cardiff - shops, restaurants, etc. Finally, the hotel breakfast presents a decent value for the cost.

The one area where this place could improve, in my opinion, is in the fitness center. Not all guests will care about this, but for a hotel of this caliber, I expected more than three pieces of cardio equipment in a tiny little box-like room.

Overall, I was extremely comfortable here and plan to stay again.

Malfunction with the air conditioning system on the 18th floor woke me up at 3am. Should this happen to you, you are expected to get dressed, pack your things, wake up your family who may fortunately still be asleep and move to another room, possibly disturbing other families in the process. Apparently there is an engineer on site to fix the problem; at 3am; who has been checked by CRB to assess whether he is suitable to be in your room while your teenage daughter sleeps in her pyjamas. Rant over. No refund for me. Nor shall I ever return. Shambolic service.

The Radisson Blu is centrally placed close to the Central Station (but sufficiently sound-proofed so it is not a problem). There are large well furnished and nicely decorated bedrooms with air-conditioning supplemented by friendly efficient staff. The breakfast was about as good as you can get for hot buffet style - mainly because the hot plates were hot and the food was kept on them in covered cast iron containers.

The only criticism I have is that a decent desk light is needed to provided enough light for working under.

This was our first stay in Cardiff, and we were there in part to watch the Wales v England international. The Hotel had been reccommended, and lived up to expectations.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, staff were friendly and efficent. The rooms were well presented and well maintained, beds were extremely comfortable, and bathrooms were spacious and elegant. One small complaint though in that the showers were low powered.

Breakfast was ample and very tasty!!!!

The hotel location is excellent, as it is within walking distance of the city centre, public amenities and bars and restaurants. It is ideally located for anyone intending to visit the Millennium Stadium.

We're are already planning a return visit.
