Excellent location 2 blocks from train station and 6 blocks from Cardiff Castle--everything easy to get to, very easy to find.
It's a converted office tower, and the rooms look it. They are bare essentials and nothing more.
But it was comfy and convenient and inexpensive.
Breakfast was standard fare.
Nice pub right next door, city center restaurants a couple blocks away.
The biggest drawback was no wifi (could pay for wifi).
