Good spot for partiers ... sufficient for 1 night

Nice location and hotel, the beds were hard to sleep in and the place is definitely drunk people proof. 1 night stays will be fine anything longer and it'll be really uncomfortable

Brilliantly located close to everything. Well air conditioned room, very clean. Friendly bar staff but didn't get a hello or smile out of reception.

City central hotel

Posted Apr 3, 2018
We stayed just one night while attending a concert at the nearby Motorpoint Arena. The hotel is in a great location, just around the corner from the train station and in the centre of the city. The staff were efficient at check in. The hotel is decorated to a high standard and very clean. Our room was on the 7th floor so therefore quite quiet. It is a city centre hotel so some noise is to be expected. The room was small but well furnished and clean. The beds were very comfortable. There was a kettle and coffee/tea making facilities and a free safe. Also provided was a good hairdryer and iron/board. The wi-fi was free but kept cutting out, although it ran at an acceptable speed when it did stay connected. Our only complaint was the water pressure. Maybe it was because we were on the top floor but the water from the shower was barely a trickle so impossible to have a shower which was ok for the one night but not for a longer stay.

As central as it gets

Posted Mar 10, 2018
The hotel is situated right in the centre of Cardiff. This is very convenient but you have to accept that this comes at the cost of local parking and is surrounded by bars which may trouble you if you’re a light sleeper. Because of the building’s age, there are more steps than a modern establishment would have but they’ve done an excellent job of modernising it and giving it a luxury feel. I had an excellent deal, especially considering there was a concert at the Motorpoint Centre. The staff were friendly and welcoming and accommodated me with an early check-in since I’d had a large bag and had arrived early. An enjoyable stay. I would happily stay again.

Nice budget hotel close to city center

Posted Mar 7, 2018
Had a good experience at the royal hotel. Snowstorm Emma made conditions in Cardiff difficult but the staff did their best. Wish they had shoveled the walk in front of the hotel better but this seems to be a countrywide issue. Room was clean and comfortable, as was bathroom.

Great for weekends away

Perfectly located within minutes of the Cardiff Central Station, Cardiff city centre and the stadium. The hotel is clean and tidy like a business hotel, but also has character because of the age of the building it is in.
