The place is run down and all you can hear all night are trains. The breakfast is amazing though. Staff extremely polite and willing to help. Would not stay here for personal trips Sadly working for the place I do means rubbish hotels. Lol

Location was great, >5 min walk to St David's Centre. Also 10 min taxi ride to Cardiff Bay (visiting Dr Who Experience). Hotel was clean, and staff were very good. We were concerned as there was a Stag party staying there at the same time, but we didn't hear any disturbance. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean, spacious...

The rooms are small and don't have air conditioning, just heating. It got quite hot and dry at night, and I woke up each morning gasping for water. On the Saturday night, there were lots of late-night revellers returning to their rooms between 1 and 4am, so I got no sleep on the last night. Staff at check out were...

We were visiting Cardiff for three nights, and found the Ibis Cardiff to be the cheapest and best in terms of location. We even found it to be a better option than Airbnb. The room and bathroom were pretty basic, but good value for money for a budget trip. The city centre is a 10-15 minute walk which made it...

I had rummaged around the various hotels on offer in Cardiff and decided to take a look at the Ibis as I use the Bristol Ibis quite regularly. The reviews were positive for Cardiff so made the booking. The welcome was friendly and attentive and the new digital booking system worked smoothly. My room was typical Ibis - simply furnished...

Ideally placed for Motorpoint Concerts etc. Easy stroll into the centre for shops if you chose. Cracking breakfast buffet with top class cheese and ham, breads and croissants provided by a helpful and well lead staff. Definitely use this one again - but parking is much cheaper just away from the Arena area itself.

Stayed overnight as had tickets for concert at the Motorpoint arena adjacent to this hotel. So location rates perfect. Cardiff is a walkable city and access to transport and excellent museums are easily available from this location. Ibis Cardiff complies to the usual standard of the chain and holds no surprises. Good bedding and sleep ensued. Breakfast area is small...
