Featured Cardiff Hotels

Be our guest at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Cardiff. You'll soon take to the friendly Welsh capital, whether cozying up in a pub in the city center or sauntering along cutting-edge Cardiff Bay.

Sitting high on a hill, Cardiff Castle has watched over the Welsh capital since Roman times. For fine castle views, take a relaxed stroll through Bute Park on the banks of the River Taff. Entry to the permanent collections at Cardiff's big museums is free. The highlight is the National Museum Cardiff, where you'll find Bronze Age gold, meteorites and French Impressionist art. Our Cardiff hotels are close to the city's showpiece, Cardiff Bay, with architectural wonders like the Millennium Center and the National Assembly for Wales (Senedd).

You'll find everything you need for a picnic in the park at the Victorian Central Market, from raisin-studded Welsh cakes to cheese from the valleys. Join locals at a pub in the city center for hearty Welsh fare, Brains beer and banter. Our hotels in Cardiff are close to Cardiff Bay, which is strikingly illuminated after dark. Work up your appetite for a good-value fish supper with a wander along the waterfront. Party in the lively pubs and clubs along St. Mary and Church streets and in Cardiff Bay. Our Cardiff hotels are within easy reach of the architecturally innovative Millennium Center, which hosts free lunchtime concerts most days. For a lingering taste of Wales, shop for creamy fudge and hand-carved Welsh love spoons in the city center's Victorian arcades.

Stay at our hotels in Cardiff to enjoy this year-round city of song. Come in summer for the Welsh Proms and free gigs at the outdoor Cardiff Festival. Visit in spring, when daffodils sway in Cardiff's parks, or November, when fireworks soar above the city.

Latest Cardiff Hotel Reviews

Great location
By Bazza46
Chose this hotel based upon its location to the Principality Stadium for the Wales Georgia game. Have used Holiday Inns on a couple of occasions, and found them good value for money. [Less]
Good easy location
By Hammy
Easy location close to city centre / easy car parking (tad expensive) [Less]
All you can ask for
By Pietro
I have stayed here several times when visiting Cardiff. Always meets expectations. I left something in my room and the staff were really helpful in finding it for me. The local telephone number [More] seems to be a secret so it can be really difficult to get directly in touch with the local team. Other HI hotels in Cardiff provide local number on website - as did, ironically, the customer service reply e mail from this hotel [Less]
Fantastic location, basic amenities
By MoJ0917
My stay here was perfectly pleasant but no more. A good, clean, basic room (could do with an extra towel) and a reasonable breakfast. Just don't go at peak time or you'll have to fight for the [More] croissants! [Less]
No nonsense hotel
By Bob52
Well run clean and comfortable with easy access to the main city attractions - parking close by a bonus too. [Less]
Excellent Location
By RLopes
Stayed at the Holiday Inn express @Birstol City Centre. Located exactly opposite Bristol Temple Meads rail station. Good choice of breakfast. Quality as you would expect Holiday Inn to be same level [More] or detail, cleanliness and comfort. [Less]
Excellent timing
By Titan1960
I found my stay pleasant as usual. No drama in booking in . I even asked the staff if they could store some medication in the fridge which they did with no problem. I think better sound proofing of [More] the doors could be looked into but to be honest it doesnt bother me too much burr can with children. The food was excellent and plenty of choice perhaps pancakes for the fussy kids would have been nice with warm syrup but I was very happy with what was supplied (sausages were a little over cooked mind). Room was clean however it is very annoying not to have a socket next to the bed as I needed my phone left on and on charge at the same time. Great for one but with the use of the pull out sofa bed it was cramped and you had to "wiggle" the chair free from under the desk. On saying that, I will use again as I found it the best for money in the area [Less]
Business trip
By Steve84
The hotel is being extended but this did not affect my stay. The reception staff were polite and friendly. Rooms clean and well appointed. Free WiFi that worked. Over all a good stay [Less]
Really helpful reception
By Gricer49
Reception staff made a real difference on arrival after a long journey and helped set the tone for a very good stay. [Less]
