When staying in a bed and breakfast, a delicious breakfast is served in the morning.

Located at the north of the city center, it is very easily accessible. You will also find numerous restaurants, bars and clubs in this neighborhood, allowing you to get a taste of the city’s vibrant nightlife.
For nature lovers, anything near Bute Park, in the northwestern part of the touristic center, is a great option. Close to the Castle and the River Taff, it provides visitors with a lovely touch of greenery and constitutes the perfect setting for relaxing strolls in one of the capital’s quieter places.
Possibilities are plentiful when you are looking for accommodation in the heart of the city and there is really something for everyone. Popular is also staying for a night or the weekend in a self catering apartment to rent.
