An Introduction to Cardiff

Cardiff is the largest city in Wales and its capital. The city is Wales' chief commercial centre, the base for most national cultural and sporting institutions, the Welsh national media and the seat of the National Assembly for Wales. Cardiff is a significant tourism centre and the most popular visitor destination in Wales.

The city of Cardiff is the county town of the historic county of Glamorgan. A small town until the early 19th century, its prominence as a major port for the transport of coal following the arrival of industry in the region, contributed to its rise as a major city.
Cardiff was made a city in 1905, and proclaimed capital of Wales in 1955.

Since the 1990s Cardiff has seen significant development with a new waterfront area at Cardiff Bay which contains the new Welsh Assembly Building and the Wales Millennium Centre arts complex. International sporting venues in the city include the Millennium Stadium (rugby union and football), SWALEC Stadium (cricket) and the newly opened Cardiff City Stadium. The city was awarded the European City Of Sport in 2009 due to its role in hosting major international sporting events.

Historia de Cardiff

Archaeological evidence from sites in and around Cardiff shows that Neolithic people had settled in the area by at least around 6,000 BP (Before Present), about 1,500 years before either Stonehenge or the Great Pyramid of Giza was completed. A group of five Bronze Age tumuli is at the summit of The Garth within the county's northern boundary. Four Iron Age hillfort and enclosure sites have been identified within Cardiff's present-day county boundaries, including Caerau Hillfort, an enclosed area of 51,000 m2.

King Edward VII granted Cardiff city status on 28 October 1905, and the city acquired a Roman Catholic Cathedral in 1916. In subsequent years an increasing number of national institutions were located in the city, including the National Museum of Wales, Welsh National War Memorial, and the University of Wales Registry Building—however, it was denied the National Library of Wales, partly because the library's founder, Sir John Williams, considered Cardiff to have "a non-Welsh population".

Cardiff: the university

Cardiff University is located in the Cathays Park area of Cardiff, Wales. It received its Royal charter in 1883 and is a member of the Russell Group of Universities. The university is consistently recognised as providing the best university education in Wales. Cardiff University celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2008.

In 1931, the School of Medicine, which had been founded as part of the College in 1893 when the Departments of Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Pharmacology were founded, was split off to form the University of Wales College of Medicine. In 1972, the College was renamed University College, Cardiff.

On 1 August 2004 the University of Wales, Cardiff merged with the University of Wales College of Medicine. The merged institution separated from the collegiate University of Wales and officially took the name Cardiff University.

One of the nights we were kept awake by lots of rowdy residence in the courtyard outside building N until gone 3am. Apart from this, our stay was comfortable and suited our needs perfectly.

I am so impressed with the service rendered by the staff members. The rooms are clean and nice. If available I will always look for the University rooms first. The price is comparable but the service excel.

Nothing to complain about. Our room key wouldn't open the main door on sSaturday night but the receptionist sorted it out in seconds. I have marked down the. Room and facilities but this is not to say they are not unacceptable and I appreciate that you are paying for 5 Star accommodation so they are fantastic for the price. Looking forward to my next stay.

The only thing that spoilt our stay was the noise during the night from a group of young people congregated on the wide pavement on the other side of the road opposite our rooms. Next time, we will request a quieter room. Otherwise, all very nice, thanks!

Great value for money, room had everything I needed for my stay, nice bed, good storage and liked the ensuite and had a well equipped kitchen. Nice feel to campus, good community vibe and felt secure in my room. Friendly and helpful reception. About 40-50mins walk from city centre station but near beautiful Pontcanna fields & has 24 hour Tesco nearby.

You really can't beat it for value for money and a stones throw from the city centre! I was in town for a concert and the cheapest hotel nearby was £120 a night more!

We were very pleased that there were cups and complimentary tea,coffee available. Sponge and washing up liquid would have enabled us to leave the kitchen cleaner than we were able.

(Comentarios de Cyncoed Halls, Cardiff) Cyncoed Halls, Cardiff

The only comment we would like to make would be that the bed mattresses were very soft and for adults (or even 18 year old students) this might prove uncomfortable. Having said that we slept very well. For the site we stayed at it would have been useful to know that there is a main train line very close by due to the noise (although I always travel with ear plugs).
