Good value, 10 min walk to central rail station, still got a smokers' floor, so what's not to like? Well, tourists of a nervous disposition may be shocked about the walk from the Bute Park / Holiday Inn direction. Right over the River Taff from the Millennium Stadium, the Riverside suburb (bit of an "international quarter" these days) is just plain filthy. Piles of garbage and broken glass in the backstreets. I thought about taking a photo of it all, but several "hoodies" were hanging around and I got the feeling I might get mugged. This was definitely the most uneasy I've felt in the UK in the daytime for many years. Nothing to do with the hotel I admit, but anyone walking here would be best advised to approach directly from the station!
Otherwise, my room was facing the road so a bit noisy with traffic. The nightclub wasn't open but youths were talking and shouting outside till about 0200 on a weekday night. Wasn't interested in watching the room TV, but tried to switch it on anyway and couldn't - the batteries in the remote were dead. No hot water in the shower at 10pm, and a fixed shower head. Why can't hotels just add a detachable shower head? It's not rocket science.
