Clean room in a friendly, multicultural neighbourhood. 1 x Double bed, desk, chair & wardrobe. The price is for 1 guest but can accomodate up to 3 extra guests at £15 per night each.

All amenities including supermarket, restaurants and take aways are close. Cardiff Bay and Cardiff City Centre are 20 minutes away or catch a bus directly outside the house.

Clean bed linen and towels are provided and the room is cleaned before you arrive. All kitchen facilities are available if required.

The space

The building isn't the most modern i.e. the carpets are quite worn and the kitchen and bathroom require updating but it is kept clean and tidy. The entrance to my upper flat is quite tight but there's enough room to get a suitcase in. The entrance is going to be modernised by the end of 2017.

Guest access

Guests are free to use the kitchen and bathroom but must be quiet and respect the other tenants as they go to sleep at 10pm.

Other things to note

Guests can let themselves in at any time of the day (after 12p.m.) as I have a keysafe installed at the entrance to the property.

Accurate description - unfortunately not our best Airbnb experience. Room was large, bed comfortable and access easy enough. Unfortunately, it was not particularly clean (toenail clippings on carpet, half full glasses presumably left by previous guests, shaving hairs all over sink, etc.!) and the lack of seeing the host - and lack of response to texts and calls on our day off arrival - was somewhat odd. Despite paying a premium for an extra guest, only one bath towel was left. The lack of communication during the trip other than a random text late at night was a disappointment given the decent responses during the week. Not a horrendous experience, but will not stay again when more central budget hotel's such as Sleeperz offer much better experience for a fraction higher cost.

Response from Philip:
I'm sorry your experience wasn't the best but in this one instance I overlooked the things you pointed out as I cleaned the room late at night after a hard week at work. I will be extra vigilant from now on. I didn't receive one text so how could I respond? Why is it odd not to see the host when you let yourself in with the keysafe code? It wasn't a random text I sent it was giving you instructions on how to turn the heating on if required. I apologise for only providing the one bath towel but a hand towel was provided as well and shower gel and a fresh toilet roll were left in the bathroom. £40 for 2 people for large room in Central Cardiff on a Saturday night is very reasonable and I doubt you would've got a room for the same price, especially on an International Rugby night.

Great location and the bedroom was exceptionally clean! Phil's really flexible with the check in time which is great and he's really responsive in regards to contact. The bathroom and kitchen were pretty no-thrills but that's fine. I believe there's also a cat so if you're allergic, it's probably a good idea to find a different listing!

Response from Philip:
Thanks for the nice review. Sooty the cat isn't a permanent resident and only pops in now & again i.e. once every couple of weeks. If anyone is allergic to cats then please inform me & I'll make sure Sooty stays away.
