5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2009

i stayed here with my partner on the 23rd and 24rth of sep and we had no problems at all,The hotel is finished to a very high standard,the rooms were very spacious and clean with a very confy king size bed.we requested a room on one of the higer floors and were given a room on the 18th floor with fabulous views over the city and cardiff bay.The hotel is situated more or less over the road to the cia which was perfect for us as we were there to wach michael mcintyre.The hotel food was very nice and fairly priced but we found the drinks to be a bit on the expensive side,all in all a nice stay.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2009

We booked a 20% off weekend package in a Business room, including breakfast, on lastminute.com. I had mixed expectations - knowing the hotel would be experiencing growing pains, but having enjoyed our stay in a Business room at the Radisson Blu in Dublin two months ago. The hotel is conveniently located for those traveling by train, though we had difficulty finding it. Look for the massive John Lewis, which sadly was not yet open during our stay. The room was spacious, but the decor was not our style. My husband described the primary colored theme as a child's playroom. The walls are thin and not soundproof as we could clearly hear what sounded to be a bachelorette/hen party taking place next door. Thankfully the bed was exceptionally comfortable so we did not have any problems sleeping. Our room on the 21st floor had great views, a Nespresso machine, and robes, but I don't think a Business room is worth the splurge. As others noted, the bathroom appeared unfinished as it lacked a garbage bin and hooks. I also found the water pressure and temperature to be disappointing for a newly built hotel. Far more disappointing, however, was the breakfast, especially compared with the buffet that was offered at the chain's Dublin location. At 10am, with an hour remaining, there was little food left, and not a great deal of vareity. After waiting 10 minutes we had to ask for our table to be set with cutlery. The staff, though friendly, seemed in need of training. Overall, I would recommend this hotel due to the convenient location, spacious clean rooms, and comfortable bed if a good deal can be found, but skip the breakfast.
