Would reiterate many of the comments already made- air con didn't work, and being opposite the railway meant it was too noisy to have the window open at night. Staff welcoming but don't speak good English, not a problem unless as happened to us they tried to charge us again for the same booking even though it had been paid for over the Internet weeks before. The excuse was that the two systems weren't compatible, we had been quoted the wrong price, difficult to imagine for an international chain as big as Ibis. Be sure to take a printout of your booking with you! They backed down in the end. Having said that the room and bed were clean and comfortable enough, shower was hot. Getting through to the TV channels is very annoying, they obviously hope you will pay for something by mistake as you have to go through so many screens each time you switch on. Also free wifi should be standard these days. Don't just turn up for a room, booking ahead over the Internet saved 50%. Would not be worth the full price. Conveniently situated for Cardiff centre.
