Sometimes it can be quite difficult to judge location when it comes to hotels and this is always true if it is a city you are not familiar with. It is important to think about location and how it relates to what you want to do on your stay as travelling to major activities every day can be time consuming and expensive. Often when people are looking for cheap hotels in Cardiff they don’t think about the location of their hotel and how much it may cost to get into the centre of town as taxis every day can be quite expensive. Hopefully the map below will help.
Most people don’t think about it but if you book on abnormal dates you could be in line for a big discount on your hotel. Nearly all Hotels are well below capacity on Sunday nights so its this time that you will be able to find a much cheaper deal. You could find that the price is as much as 50% lower than what you would pay on a Friday night. Its worth thinking if the saving is worth it even if it means you have to book a different day off work.
There are other benefits to booking at off-peak times, mainly that many more of the facilities will be free and less crowded especially if the hotel has a gym or other leisure facilities. This is also true of the surrounding city and not just the hotel. Many more of the main attractions in the city will be less crowded and you many even find that you can get discounts to some of the activities because of this. Booking away from the school and other public holidays is another good tip as most hotels offer cheaper deals around these times.
