Keys are found in a key safe inside the front door, which was a bit fiddly, via a digital entry code to front door, which was sent with the booking...

Stayed at the SACO Cardiff and was very pleasantly surprised at how nice the apartment actually was. It was clean, spacious, well thought out and in a great location (only 10-15mins walk from Cardiff Castle). If you want food, I recommend "The Beverley" across the road - Huge breakfasts for under a fiver! I didn't expect the apartment to have...

These apartments had everything we needed for our stay in cardiff, from towels to sachets of tea and even milk in the fridge! The place was very clean, quiet and safe; and literally ten minutes walk from the centre of Cardiff. I can't recommend this place enough, and will definately be back.
