What to do while staying for the night near the International or Utilita Arena?

Whether you are visiting the city for business or pleasure, you will have an opportunity to discover what makes the capital of Wales so special and fascinating.

Finding your overnight accommodation around the Arena is a must, as it will not only allow you to travel to the venue easily from your bed and breakfast or hotel room, but also to explore the city centre. Many properties have family rooms and offer free Wifi and on-site car parking as well. Some feature a swimming pool, fitness centre and spa.

> Cheap Hotels near Cardiff International Arena

In very close proximity to the facility, you will find St David Hall’s, another popular entertainment venue. Visiting the art gallery or attending a show there is a wonderful idea if you need to relax during your business trip.

Also, you’ll be able to indulge in a little shopping at St David’s shopping center, as well as the famous St Mary Street and Hayes promenade. Numerous b&b’s offer guest rooms in the heart of the city, which is ideal if you want to see all the sights.

From the world famous Castle to the Bay, or the Millennium Centre, among others, many of them are near the Motorpoint Arena, as well as cafés, restaurants and pubs.

Cheap Places to Stay – Hotel and b&b rooms to let !

Because it is very central and surrounded by some of the most interesting things to do and see in Cardiff, the Arena constitutes a perfect landmark to stay around during your stay for the night. Whether you are looking for apartments, boutique bed and breakfast rooms to let or cheap hotels, you will be sure to find what you need in this area.

One of the main reasons why you should stay right next to the venue is that traveling around the city from there is very convenient. Transport by rail or by bus is made easy thanks to the proximity of Cardiff Central Train Station and Queen Street Station, while CWL airport is a mere 20-minute drive away.

If you are planning a longer stay, however, and do not necessarily need to be at the Utilita Arena for business purposes, consider staying a bit further from the center, for a more unique experience. Rooms are available in b&b’s and guest houses all through the city, which means your options are numerous.

Consider the area surrounding Bute Park if you need some quiet moments in a natural setting, or even further on the outskirts, towards the Vale of Glamorgan.

Around the Motorpoint Arena, Exhibition and trade fair centre and in the city center you will find several inexpensive accommodations. Good choice hotels very close to the arena include Park Inn by Radisson and budget hotel Ibis Cardiff Centre.
