Me and some friends visited Cardiff for new years eve. The Ibis Budget seemed a great choice as the price was low compared to other places and was located in an area within walking distance to the high street. The hotel was secure and provided good security as you even needed a key card to get into the lift. The...

You know what you get with a Ibis Budget, so don't expect the Savoy. The sink is in the room, The toilet is in a closet and there is a separate shower closet - similar to most Ibis Budget hotels. However, this place is spotless and you could not find a bit of dust anywhere. The bed was comfortable and...

I stayed at this hotel on the night of the 12th of January, 2017. The property is conveniently located not far from the main train station. The accommodation is basic satisfactory. A good 24-hour reception area with free hot drinks and, for £5, a decent continental breakfast buffet.Vending machines for food and drink, alcoholic and non alcoholic, were also available....

Visited for a weekend. The hotel room was small, clean and comfortable. It was basic but good value for money. There were no toiletries so make sure you bring your own. It is a continental breakfast, at an additional cost. This is all you can eat so at £5.50. You have to pay for parking -£4 a day. The shopping...

When I think of budget hotels, I think of shabby rooms and a dodgy, unwelcoming atmosphere. My partner and I have stayed in Ibis Budget 3 or 4 times now (and will continue to do so!), and each time it's exceeded my expectations. The staff are very friendly. Once we accidentally booked the wrong day, and they let us swap...

Although this hotel is affordable and well-located (you can walk if you want from the hotel to the city centre), the bathroom is tiny (one of the smallest bathrooms I have ever seen) and the view is depressing. The breakfast is not included, although complimentary tea is. I would not stay here again, as the room and the place as...

This hotel is what it is. Budget, the rooms where very clean. The staff pleasant and helpful. Only 5 minutes walk from Cardiff city center, 25 minutes from Cardiff Bay. Have to pay for parking, but it is very cheap compared to the rest of Cardiff. No tea making facilities in the rooms but was available in reception.
