Step off the train at Cardiff Central, walk outside, turn right and you’re at Sleeperz hotel.
When visiting the Welsh capital, it’s essential to be in the hub of activity. Sleeperz offers you that.
Located central to the train station, with rooms facing the heart of Cardiff, Sleeperz offers comfortable stays in a building of 74 stylish rooms.
Sleeperz offers quirks. My reason for staying at Sleeperz was for birthday celebrations, and a weekday night out in the Welsh capital. I’ve walked past the hotel many times, but never had the opportunity to stay.
Prices are relatively cheap – room prices from £45 – but the price doesn’t reflect what you get.
If big double beds with luxurious rooms and big bathrooms are what you’re looking for, Sleeperz may not be the first choice. The cosy chic style of Sleeperz is its charm.
Inside the rooms are bunk beds – I’m not sure if it is the same for every room – and the beds are comfortable. There’s no issue with getting atop the bunk, at least not for me, and the beds don’t rattle or squeak with every move. There’s even a light at the bed for any night time reading.
The hotel provides tea and coffee – though not enough milk – and the TV is small, but offers freeview channels.
A divider door is locked, separating our compact room from the next. It’s easy to hear those next door, as I’m sure it’s easy to hear us.
The bathroom doesn’t offer much for movement, and little storage space for toiletries, but it does come with body soap and shampoo. It’s small, but not claustrophobic. It’s clean and fresh. A divider door is pulled across to separate you from the room. However, shadows can be seen on the other side, and you might not feel like you’re in total privacy.
All in all, Sleeperz is a friendly hotel to stay at. The staff were helpful, the food was good, and the lobby bar offered a range of drinks. It’s inexpensive, within a central location, but it doesn’t feel budget.
I would definitely stay at Sleeperz again!
