Detailed review by auraobie
Derby, United Kingdom
After wandering up and down St Mary's street, Cardiff several times, suitcases-a -tow, trying to find this hotel, we were beginning to get frustrated and flustered. Suddenly, we spotted it, a tiny narrow buiding, with a tiny sign indicating that this was the Royal Hotel. We trudged to the entrance, somewhat disappointed with the £140 price tag for a single night stay! However, after being buzzed in (an impressive and comforting security feature, albeit slightly annoying to us smokers) we were greeted in an impressive lobby and shown to a rather swanky room! The hotel, was lovely and comfortable, with impressive city views; which held a certain aromanticist air with the electronic and neon lights of the city, blurred by the drizzling rain and disrupted by the slow, mechanical movements of the construction cranes.
