Stayed at this hotel whilst attending Madonna concert in Cardiff.
The rooms were basic and clean and the hotel is very conveniently placed in the city centre.
As stated by other reviewers, the staff left a lot to be desired. The basic problem is that they don't speak very good English and it was a waste of time asking about car parking/directions etc. Also they had a very laid back attitude and the night 'security man' was a bit too agressive.
Ordering food was a waste of time, very little was available and took ages to arrive. Most of the beer ran out on the Saturday night when a lot of people were returning after the concert - bad planning. There is no car park at the hotel itself apart from a few parking meters down a dubious side street so you have to park elsewhere (although there are car parks across the road).
Whilst rooms were fine the noise outside was bad, so windows had to be permanently shut and the air con. didn't work.
I've stayed in Ibis hotels in Paris and Manchester and this one did not live up to my expectations. I would look elsewhere next time.
