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.

Wonderful stay, as always, at Holiday Inn Cardiff City Centre. Very friendly and attentive staff. Best breakfast in Cardiff. [Less]
Pleasant overnight stay
By allblack71
Watched England v Pakistan ODI at SSE Swalec stadium, a few minute walk along the River Taff. Just an overnight stay (Sunday > Monday), we appreciated the executive room upgrade. Nice warm (Welsh) [More] welcome from Reception staff on arrival, we checked in early and were allocated quiet room at rear of hotel. Good size bedroom with rather small bathroom. Hotel was busy so we couldn't secure table in restaurant until 8.30pm. Food was tasty with polite waiter/waitress service. Moved to hotel bar for quiet drink afterwards. Breakfast was also good, the following morning. Quick and efficient to work we go!! Nothing outstanding, but price seemed ok for city centre hotel. On site parking for a limited number of cars, £10 per day I think. [Less]
Good service levels inside the hotel

AIrcon blows cold air even at default reset 21C and prevents sleep. setting to highest 25C takes 5 mins to make a difference, but still blows air directly over bed. Sausages are pretty low quality [More] and 'ikky' [Less]
Good value stay

This hotel was easy to access from the motorway. The staff were very welcoming and check-in was quick and easy. The room was just what we have come to expect from HIE, clean tidy and fresh. The [More] breakfast was included with some hot items and plenty of choice of cereals, yogurts, bakery items and fruit. There was also a good choice of hot drinks and juices.
