Pleasant stay
This place was great. It had more of a hostel feel to it. Staff was great. Accommodations were modern, clean and convenient to city center. We caught the airport shuttle (5 pounds each way) and walked the city. Cardiff is very walkable. Service is 24 hrs with complimentary hot drinks (tea and coffee), assorted snacks and drinks for sale. We came in one night at 2330 and had a pizza delivered to our room within 20 mins. I would stay here again.

Clean Hotel
Overall it is just like any ibis, a plastic hotel if you will. They are always comfortable and you get exactly what you pay for, so I cannot complain. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The only drawback is it's difficult to find the driveway to the hotel. It is tucked away behind the Mercure hotel. I would return to this hotel if I ever go back to Cardiff.

Clean college dorm, ineffective staff
Our hotel room was simple, clean, and a smaller 1-room space where it felt like a dorm room. Double bed was a bunk bed with a queen sized mattress on bottom and twin on top. Small desk located in the corner next to the window. Sink was next to the glass chamber for the shower. Toilet was inside a small room the size of a closet. Definitely not much space for privacy when changing. First night was fine. Second night was the opposite since it was a holiday weekend. The hotel is considered a "budget," where apparently, it seems like the management expects partiers and doesn't really enforce normal etiquette of quiet hours. The partying started around 6, continuing loudly after 11. The management gave them a warning, but it continued without lowering the volume. It's unacceptable to see other guests skipping around shirtless in the hallway and throwing up besides rude to let the doors slam. They offered to move us to the ground floor, however, the rooms face the parking lot with unbarred windows. Also, the hallway outside is just cement where noise reverberates and doesn't solve the problem when the partiers use the public restrooms there. On a side note, their system doesn't code the room keys well. We had to go back several times to get it fixed. One of the staff was rude about it where she acted as if it wasn't a problem and that we should be ok going back a few times. The key lets you into the room, use the elevator, and into the building if it's late.
