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.
