Location and overall size of apartment
The building is poorly finished with cheap fittings. The bedrooms are quite small and bathrooms are poorly designed and fitted out.
Excellent location with all facilities on the doorstep.
No phone reception in studio flat 17, which was a problem as I needed to work during my stay. Wifi a bit patchy too.
Everything was absolutely great - I couldn't have chosen a better location or quality of accommodation. I loved the quiet atmosphere of the building and the convenience of its location for both Cardiff Bay and the trains into the city centre.
Intermittent performance of the internet was time-consuming and frustrating, but didn't damage the overall experience.
Location Facilities Atmosphere
Wifi was tempemental
Situation excellent. Great introduction from Steve. Good wifi. Furniture a bit scary.
No reading light over bed. Very warm, too warm at night. Kitchen needs e.g. egg cups and some wooden spoons, a small selection of cooking basics like salt and pepper...and a dishwasher would be nice. Difficult to negotiate getting in and out of bed on side close to wall. This, and a lack of grab rail and/ or anti-slip mat in shower creates problems for older visitors.
Very good place to stay with my family! Clean and confortable!
The convenience of everything and the great set up that the hotel had - including vouchers for discounted car parking and eating out.
Location layout of apartment
Every thing but that we had no cleaning and was difficult to clear trash
Service for cleanliness

Location was very good. Showers were also really good!
Check in was a challenge as phone listing included in the Booking.com app goes to a corporate website which is not open on the weekend. We ended up calling after hours maintenance and it took about 7 calls to get details for the duty manager. They seemed suprised when I was in a bad mood when they provided me with additional charges for late checkin. You will receive an email from A Space In The City, we could not find ours but apparently it has local details for property managers. Make sure you locate yours before you try and checkin. Location could be better described in the accommodation data. This is an appartment in the Quayside complex, there is limited signage for the building and I could find no signage for a space in the city. The carpets in the apartment had large black stains on them (I did not want me son crawling around on them), a couple of the door handles were falling apart. I would suggest parking in the nearby parking building before checkin as the service is discounted and there is no parking near the unit.
Location, cleanliness of apartment
No full length mirror and mirror not conveniently located to dry hair or apply make-up.
Location is perfect, very clean, kitchen has all one may need including dishwasher and washing machine
There is no reception. You have to call a guy in advance and let them now by email as well. There are only few rooms with the view to the bay, so pictures are deceiving in this sense.
Location, near the the centre, near lots of bars but quiet. Very clean, fantastic value for money. Easy parking.
Long winded check in, Stephen was a really nice and helpful host, very thorough but bits not really necessary.
Free WiFi Location Standard of furniture and plenishings in room. We arrived late and due to unforseen circumstances we were even later than had thought but the company kindly only took the smaller late fee from us.
Too warm and no way to change the temperature without leaving the balcony door open which is unsafe (no windows or temp control). Not being able to smoke on the balcony. I attempted to contact the staff to arrange a late check out throughout the weekend but did not receive any response so was left in limbo re that. I would have liked to have been contacted about that.
Staff was great room very beautiful
Wifi connection dropped frequently. Key didnt allow you to enter area to dispose of rubbish
Perfect for our first trip to Cardiff - right on Mermaid Quay, within 2 minutes' walk of restaurants, 2 minutes' walk to the Tourist Information shop within the Millennium Centre, and 2 minutes' walk to the bus stop to take us into city centre. 7am - 11pm mini Sainsbury's at the base of the apartment building entry. Dishwasher, clothes washer, fridge, hob, dishes, two bedrooms (one a super-king bed), two spacious bathrooms, nicely decorated flat. The hosts (Kirsty and Stephen) were very helpful and friendly. 4 minutes' walk from the car park, which was only 6 quid per day with their voucher discount from the Space in the City deal.
None! Best weekend getaway location we've been to in the United Kingdom!
cannot find a reception
The apartment was very comfortable and had everything that was needed for our stay. Being able to cook our own meals was a great bonus as this allowed for flexibility. Being able to relax in comfortable chairs was a plus as most hotel rooms lack this facility. A great location too!!!
There was nothing to dislike
The clean, well equipped kitchen, convenient Cardiff Bay location and discounted, secure car parking make this an excellent base for exploring the city. The leather recliner was a talking point and there is plenty storage space.
The level of traffic noise is excessive even by city centre standards, making it almost impossible to hear the large screen TV. Sleep was difficult for the same reason. We were lucky or unlucky depending on your point of view to secure the last apartment so perhaps missed out on one of the better ones. The views of a busy road and boarded up buildings, through the dirty windows, are not great. I personally found the check in requirements excessive. However check out was easy.
My mobile phone didn't work at all! No connection in the room!
Location is great (nearby the bay, Doctor Who, BBC, and pretty much everything else). The apartment we stayed in was spacious, very well appointed, very clean, bed was amazingly comfortable. We had a washer and dryer in our unit (great, but allow lots of time for the dryer to work). Secure location with great access to amenities. Steven checked us in and and was a wealth of advice about the 'hidden gems' around us in terms of restaurants and things to do.
Difficult to reach via the Cardiff Central station, the bus routes are very confusing. Where you're told to check in is some distance from where you'll be staying (lugging the luggage is tiresome). Rules can seem strict (quiet hours, cleaning up after yourself before you leave). Please put more than one roll of toilet paper in the bathroom!
It looked a little dated as we drove up but the apartment itself was well set out and lovely and clean inside. It was a great location right on the bay and next to a lot of restaurants etc. It was only a 10-15 minute walk into Galway itself. A taxi ride back out costs about 10 Euro just for your information. We really enjoyed our stay here. Plenty of Parking
They gave us no cloths to clean in the kitchen. Not sure if it was oversight or normally not supplied. We didnt notice till after we had been to the supermarket. Also we were supplied with 2 very small bin bags. With 4 people staying there (2 were young children) the first bin filled up rather quickly. Would have been an issue if we ate in every night. We werent told where to dispose of the full bins either. We were only there a few nights so didnt bother to ask if we saw someone in reception. Worth asking at check in if you are staying a few nights.
I loved the location and home concept.
Shampoo and cleaning tools were deficient. And it fets hot when sleeping. There is no AC
