My own bedroom with very comfy king size bed. Very convenient location, just 10mins to city centre and local shops a plenty. House is homely +offers Welsh hospitality and local guidance. Cardiff suits all budgets and ages.

The space

This is actually my own bedroom that I give up when demand calls and the other 3 bedrooms are already booked. Please do NOT make this bedroom your 1st choice. NO monthly stays.
It has a very comfy king size bed where you can watch TV, have a good night's sleep and relax with a morning tea/coffee. Room consists of a bedside lamp, wooden floors, curtains+blinds, hair dryer and wi-fi access.
Please be aware that you will NOT have access to storage, I can provide hangers for you to hang up clothes. The room will contain my possessions, however, you will have plenty of living space. This upstairs bedroom looks onto the street. You take as you find!

Towels and clean linens are provided.

A second bathroom is upstairs:- wet room with sink+toilet.

The house is situated just a 10mins bus ride/drive to the city centre. Local shops are 5mins walk away on Splott Rd, where you will also find bakeries, cashpoints, 2 fantastic cafe's, grocery stores, Post Office, library and Leisure Centre.

You will love Cardiff city centre, it's flat, easy to walk around, full of great shops, Victorian arcades, a Millennium Stadium smack bang in the centre, lots of cheap to expensive eateries, beautiful parks by the river, plenty of pubs, bars, nightclubs, Cardiff Bay in all it's glory, St Fagans Museum of Welsh National History, Cardiff Castle to name just a few things to see and do....

Rossi is a fantastic host. She makes you feel welcome from the moment you arrive, and is very informative about Cardiff by providing useful information. My friend and I decided to go clubbing in the night, which was no problem at all as long as you aren't rowdy when you get back in, and we were able to have a needed lie in without any disturbance. Rossi helped to make sure we had arranged appropriate transport. The house is clean and cosy, and looks just as advertised. We were also provided with helpful things such as clean towels, water, tissues, dressing gowns and a hair dryer, which all makes you feel right at home. We didn't feel as if there was anything we couldn't ask Rossi or come to her about. The stay was really fantastic and much better than staying in a hotel! And of course, Cardiff is a great city to come and visit with plenty to do.

Rossi is very friendly, a great source for recommendations for things to do and visit, and always willing to engage in friendly conversation. I got a nice room during my stay and everything is clean and tidy.

Rossi is a fantastic host, greeted me and then helped me get into town and orientated. Breakfast was lovely (even soy milk). I unfortunately caught a horrible cold but Rossi went far beyond anything expected with hot lemon and ginger, etc. Highly recommend staying in her lovely confortable rooms (great mattress, pillows and linens), the bathroom is shared but very clean and modern. Thanks Rossi for making me feel so at home!

We received a very warm welcome from Rossi on arrival; settled into our room then got to know her over a pizza and a few beers, which made us feel really comfortable. This was our first time using Airbnb so we didn't really know what to expect, so we really appreciated Rossi making us feel so welcome in her home. Her house is in a quiet residential area with plenty of parking available on the road outside. It's only a short distance from Cardiff city centre so ideal as a base for shopping, watching rugby at the Principality Stadium etc. Our bed was lovely and comfortable ( had a really good night's sleep) , bathroom facilities were fine and Rossi provided us with a hearty cooked breakfast in the morning. She was very friendly and helpful, with lots of local knowledge to help guest with any queries. There were other guests staying at her home at the same time as us and it was really nice having a chat around the kitchen table together. So much nicer than impersonal hotels. I would recommend staying here, and my wife and I look forward to staying at her lovely home again next time we want to come to Cardiff.

Rossi was an excellent host. She is so warm, friendly and understanding. Her house is lovely, the room was clean, comfortable and exactly as described. It is in a good location with easy access to the city and the rest of Cardiff. The breakfast and fresh coffee every morning was delcious. I would highly recommend staying here & really enjoyed getting to know Rossi.

Rossi User ProfileRossi is a superhost.

By day I am a massage/beauty therapist but also a busy hands-on home owner who offers Welsh hospitality to all guests.
I enjoy all aspects of being a host, providing a big Welsh breakfast, having a chat over a vino, giving visitor information on the capital and helping guests as much as possible.
As for things I like, I'm a huge rugby fan, keen independent traveller, current affairs, entertaining friends at home, socialising in the city, talking about the Welsh language, cinema, photography, comedy nights at The Glee Club, Curb Your Enthusiasm, home baking and a large glass of vino calapso after a hectic week.
I appreciate good communication with potential guests so that their stay is as pleasant and hassle free as possible. I'd like to think that I go an extra mile for guests, so if you want me to put some beers in the fridge, a heated footspa, or some Welsh cakes on your arrival, just ask.
I'd like to make a personal statement about how I prefer the guest-host relationship. If you want The Hilton, then book The Hilton. Please do not expect to see a concierge on the door, a chef, a Manager, or a Housekeeper - it's just me, I do it all. Do not expect The Hilton on a beer budget. Chez Rossi is rustic with every room having it's own individual theme. Perfection ain't for me, I like to mix it up.
I will not make any apology to those who do not thoroughly read each room description before making an informed decision. There's nothing I can do when you arrive. Leave your sense of entitlement and ego at the front door.
MY MOTTO: It's nice to be important but it's important to be nice!

Cardiff is a great big-little-city which caters for all ages, genres and budgets. Pack your comfy shoes, the city centre is pretty flat and bike hire will whizz you from Llandaff Cathedral down to Cardiff Bay in a flash. We got it all going on in the Principality, so come and stay soon!
