Great hotel in Cardiff
Incredible value for a very comfortable, bright, air conditioned, quiet, hotel in central location. Great breakfast in beautiful, oak paneled dining room; very friendly staff.

Great room in the center of the city
We stayed at The Royal Hotel Cardiff for an overnight layover. Just a few minutes walk to the train station and bus stop to get to/from the airport. It's on a great pedestrian street that has lots of shops and restaurants. The only downside of the location is that there was a club below the hotel BLASTING music on a Monday night, which we could definitely hear in the room. About 25-30 minute walk down to Cardiff Bay area. We randomly got put into a handicap room which was probably the largest hotel room that I've been in in Europe. All switches and fixtures were very low because it was a handicap room. Beds were very comfortable! Great free wifi. The hotel itself seemed nice, I wish we got to stay there a little longer and explore some of the other amenities. Front desk was helpful in finding where the bus to the airport stopped and gave us a schedule. Very affordable price for the room. Would definitely stay there again.

Floor was sticky
We were there after a World Cup Rugby game and it showed. The street outside was so sticky our shoes stuck as we walked. (Not the hotel's problem) This goo (beer? other nastier stuff?) got carried in on our shoes and the shoes of others and made for a sticky floor in the room. Cardiff needs to pressure wash the streets after a big event. Otherwise, nice staff, great location, and decent room.
