“Great Value for Price”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 via mobile

We stayed one night in the Radisson BLu, booked through lastminute.com with an excellent rate. Room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The view from the 16th floor was amazing. Location very good, shops and restaurants walking distance. One down side was the car park. As we arrived in the afternoon around 6pm the car park was full and we had to look somewhere else.

I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and you found our modern designed rooms to
your liking. It really is a fantastic view from the 16th floor and so many of our guests comment on it.

Our central location really is ideal for shopping and dining in Cardiff. I do understand your
disappointment at not being able to park your car in the hotel. We have a limited parking area and
we attempt to manage this space as efficiently as possible. As you have said there are many other
car parks nearby such as the John Lewis car park. We also have a train station nearby should you
wish to use an alternative to the car.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to post us a review.

Kind Regards,
Jens

Lovely clean, spacious and well-decorated room, with an excellent sized bathroom. My room was on the 8th floor at the front of the hotel, but it was extremely quiet at night time, and had a fantastic dual aspect window. Staff were very smartly dressed, professional and courteous, and parking was available in the hotel's own secure car park (£15 per night, which is what I would expect to pay, although other car parks are available nearby). Great location too - John Lewis plus other city centre shops and eateries are just across the road. My only criticism would be the rather 'weedy' shower in the bathroom, with water which seemed to come out as more of a trickle than the blast I would be expecting!

Our rooms are really peaceful and you obviously appreciated the modern design and space offered in the bedroom and bathroom. We are very lucky to have such a great view from many of our rooms including your 8th floor room.

I am delighted but not surprised to hear your comments on our staff. They work to the highest possible standards to insure quality of service for all of our guests. We do have a car park at the hotel, which is popular and there are also plenty of other car parks in the immediate area making parking the car convenient.

Our central location is a massive plus for our guests who love to visit local shops, restaurants, sporting events, music events and more. I appreciate your feedback on the shower though I am surprised. I will discuss this with my staff to insure the shower is operating at the highest standard possible.

Thank you for your great review.

Kind Regards,
Jens

We only booked this hotel on the afternoon that we were arriving, and were surprised to get a good rate at that late stage. We took a business class room with breakfast and were not disappointed. Great Nespresso coffee machine in the room, wonderful bed and bedding and really delicious soap and extras in the bathroom. Free WiFi and excellent breakfast.
The quick meal we had in the bar was excellent, and the service was terrific. Excellent value for money.

We try our best to provide all guests with excellent value for money so it pleases me greatly that you found we delivered this value during your stay. I am delighted you chose and enjoyed the Business Class Room with the Super Breakfast Buffet. They are both hugely popular with our guests. We feel we provide excellent amenities in all our rooms and bathrooms which I’m glad you made great use of.

Our Filini Bar & Lounge is always very popular with our guests. This is a great place for views of the city and our team love how the bar will populate with different groups throughout an evening so thank you for enjoying a quick meal with us.

I do hope you will consider returning to us in the future.

Kind Regards,
Jens

We stayed for one evening for a function, was a great location, right in the centre of Cardiff. Rooms were modern, clean and comfy and I would go back. There's only one thing that lets the whole place down and that's the car park. It's tiny! And charge a big fee but there's no guarantee your'll even get a space. So next time I will get the train

Excellent stay with our 3 year old. Stayed in the junior suite and nothing was too much trouble, only criticism was that there should be a guide as to what is free in the room ie films and instructions on how to use the nespresso machine that was in our room not a different model. Breakfast excellent view brilliant.

Booked 2 nights for last minute getaway, got great deal. Queensize room, very clean and spacious, huge bed, air con/heating system, free wifi, fab bathroom, huge fluffy bath sheets. We paid 63 ponds per night including a buffet breakfast, which was lovely, had everything you could want, and as much as you want. Staff friendly and efficient. Great hotel based in central Cardiff.

The hotel is centrally located and ideal for exploring cardiff with all the shops, bars and many restaurants within walking distance. Pleasant welcome from staff (even if they are hidden behind pillars, very odd layout for the reception desks) and the bar staff were very friendly with a good choice of drinks on the menu and nice bar area. The room was nice and very clean, we paid £69 for a room over Easter weekend - for this price I think the hotel is excellent value for money and I would definitely recommend if you want a nice, clean, modern hotel that's not too expensive and gives you a great base to explore cardiff.

Room Tip: Parking is limited in the hotel but secure parking is available across the road in st David's ca...
