Lonely Planet review

Billed as a 'designer hotel on a budget' and housed in a mirrored tower block, this place feels stark and functional despite the self-consciously cool colour schemes, Ikea furniture and (mostly) spacious rooms. Not bad value - especially on Sunday nights, when prices plunge - given the location and comfort level.

Our independent authors have visited The Big Sleep Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Central Cardiff.
