Pocket Guide: Cardiff Cardiff Motorpoint Arena Hotels

Motorpoint Arena Cardiff is an indoor exhibition centre and multi-purpose venue in Cardiff, formerly known as Cardiff International Arena, that was officially opened in 1993 by the Cardiff-born singer Shirley Bassey. It hosts a wide variety of events, from big name music concerts, comedy performances and other entertainment, to conferences, sporting events, exhibitions and trade shows.

The stadium is located between Cardiff Central and Cardiff Queen Street stations, so if you choose accommodation close by you will find yourself right in the heart of the city. There are quite a few hotels in the area, and you can choose from two, three and four star accommodation. With such a central location it is easy to walk to the shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes, and you will also be close to Cardiff Castle, the bay, the museums and most other attractions.

Cardiff Castle is one of the most popular heritage attractions in Wales and a site of international importance. It is situated in delightful parklands in the city centre and has a long and fascinating history. The castle is built on the site of a Roman fort, which was probably established around the end of the 59 AD, and the remains of the Roman wall can still be seen today.

The castle’s keep was built on the site of the Roman fort, probably out of wood, after the Norman conquest by the Norman Lord of Gloucester, Robert Fitzhamon. Over the years, further medieval fortifications and dwellings were added. The castle passed through the hands of many noble families over the years, eventually ending up with the Bute family, who greatly renovated the castle lodgings after 1866.

The Cardiff Story Museum is just a stone’s throw from the Motorpoint Arena and aims to tell the story of how Cardiff was transformed from a small market town in the 1300s to one of the biggest ports in the world in the 1900s, and to the cosmopolitan capital city it is today, through fun interactive galleries. As well as the museum’s permanent galleries, it also hosts a programme of temporary exhibitions.

Only slightly further away, the National Museum Cardiff is home to the national art, natural history and geology collections of Wales, and also hosts important touring and temporary exhibitions. The art collection is one of the finest in Europe. The museum houses a broad range of artefacts, with something for everyone, from Impressionist paintings to dinosaurs.

Choosing accommodation close to the Motorpoint Arena will place you right in the centre of this bustling capital city, so you can really immerse yourself in its lively entertainment scene, its many and varied shops, and its rich cultural heritage. You can also enjoy a huge choice of places to eat and drink, while still being able to walk back to your accommodation afterwards.

Most of the hotels in the area are well featured, and offer all the facilities you might expect from a city centre hotel, such as free Wi-Fi, televisions, phones, fitness equipment, laundry services and more.
