Location is absolutely perfect. Stunning view of Cardiff Bay, centrally located with easy access to public transportation and a huge variety of restaurants within walking distance to choose from. The rooms were clean, comfortable and truly felt like a home away from home. Why anyone would ever stay in a hotel after staying here is beyond me. I felt like... More

Lovely view of the river Taff going into the sea, nice apartment, although it said, no smoking, the info leaflet they gave us said smoking allowed on balcony, this would be helpful to state this before hand as, it almost impossible to find somewhere to stay that allows it.

Excellent location, well appointed and very clean apartment. Only downside is, as weather good so windows open, noise from street all night does disturb a bit. However so much to do around n about not a real problem. Cardiff could do with ensuring taxis available at station - had to wait 30 mins 9.30 pm on a Friday night!

Many thanks for your review, pleased that you found Quayside to be an excellent location. Being right in the Heart of Cardiff Bay we are in a vibrant & busy location which does encounter some noise from all that's around. It's a trade off for being so close to the action. If you stay again ask our team about Century... More

Our apartment was very modern, clean and spacious. We were very conveniently located for Mermaid Quay and and city centre and we walked to both areas quite easily. The only downside was that the beds were quite soft and in the morning I had pain down my back and neck. I also paid for a parking space but ended up... More

Many thanks for your review. We think you must have stayed with us in Century Wharf not Quayside as it's Century Wharf that offers parking spaces & is by the river. Pleased you had an enjoyable stay, hope to see you next time you visit Cardiff. More

A Space in the City serviced apartments is not a dedicated serviced apartments facility. They are actual apartments in a private apartment block. Most of the units are owned by residents. The apartment we had was a roomy two bedroom with a full bath and an ensuite shower. The apartment was reasonably furnished and had all the necessary kitchen amenities... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You will have a commanding view over Cardiff Bay from these apartments, with the promise of clean sea air, sailing boats gliding by, and the call of the sea, all at no extra expense! Furnished to a very high standard, these apartments provide shoreline and water views from both the living area, and the bedrooms. Mermaid Quay is just a five minute stroll away, where the Waterbus will chug you along to Cardiff centre, Penarth, or (for the landlubbers amongst us) provide you with a grandstand view of the boat traffic working its way through the Bay Barrage Locks. Parking is provided for one car per apartment in this luxury development, which is accessed throughout by coded fob. ... more   less
