The location of the hotel is great - near all the down-town activities, and the train station. However the room looked rather "tired" - functional, but clearly in need of an update.

Cardiff Travel Guide

Where is Cardiff?

It can be great to travel without a plan, but even the most spontaneous travelers will want to have a basic understanding of where Cardiff sits on the map.

It's the national capital of Wales and about 25 miles to the west of the significant city of Bristol.

It shouldn't be tricky to make some new buddies in this corner of Monmouthshire. It boasts a population of approximately 300,000 locals.

Places to Visit in Cardiff

Don't travel to Cardiff without going to much-loved attractions like Cardiff Castle and Wales Millennium Centre. Prefer to go someplace else? Don't stress — you're spoiled for choice here. A few other noteworthy options include the Techniquest and Llandaff Cathedral.

There are many stories and events that helped mold this area into what we see today. Have a look at the interesting displays at National Museum Wales. Like some more options?

You may also book a tour in advance and look around the halls where many alumni, including some who have helped shape today's society, once stood. But that's not all! Take a much-needed break from the more exhausting parts of your itinerary by spending time at Victoria Park.
