Great place with all necessary services. It is located near the city centre so you can easily access supermarkets or shopping malls. People are friendly here. I enjoy living in fitzalan and I would like to book a room for next year.

The Fitzalan is a nice place, well equipped and well-staffed. Kate, Blaize and Richard are some of the most friendliest people around and they are really helpful. However, I feel like the place is a bit overpriced in comparison to other private CRM accommodations, so I don't think it is worth the money that you're paying for, but the facilities are very good and the location is very ideal, hence why I think the price is the way it is. Socially, the spaces are good to socialise, but the social atmosphere isn't as good compared to other CRM accommodations or University Halls, so it does take a bit of effort to get to know more people. The internet is quite reliable.

Great location with multiple different supermarkerts, restaurants bars and pubs in the area of just a few minutes walk. The big common room might be one of the best features of the accomodation and it's something that other accomodations don't have. You get to play some games and socialize. The staff is really great and polite and always trying to help.

This accommodation is really brilliant and beautiful, everything are new and clean. It's easy to walk to shops, supermarkets and my school as well. I really love the design of my room. Just the wireless network doesn't work sometimes.

It's one of the best accommodations in Cardiff with fantastic staff. I stay in a studio with a beautiful view of the courtyard. The location is excellent, just a few minutes away from the City Centre.

I absolutely loved my stay at The Fitzalan. Everything I wanted in a student accommodation was given. Sayyed, Richard and Kate were absolutely helpful and were there for everything I needed. Thank you for the memories and I wish everyone the best.

Due to the national lockdown I wasn't able to enjoy the facilities of the accommodation.. And that was my main concern.. I believe that the fees should have been reduced. Other than that the accommodation is a nice place. Friendly and welcoming staff. Also it has a great location.

I wish I could rate 0 instead of 1 star. I’ve been paying rent for a room which I have not been able to stay in due to travel restrictions, and the neither the Fitz nor CRM have any compassion as they would not let me exit my contract. I’ve been isolated in my room as even though I have a studio so I am in a 1 person household, we are not allowed to have guests. On top of this the room a received was nothing like the room I was shown on my tour. The “music” room is a joke, if you’re an actual musician rather than a monkey who knows a few chords you’ll soon know how awful it is. Would not stay again or recommend staying, would’ve preferred my c****** of a house in Cathays from last year.

everything is fine so far, but it's better to have a exhaust hood in the kitchen.

I’ve really enjoyed living here. The building is central and I do love my room. The staff have handled the COVID situation very well and I have been enjoying the social spaces now that they have reopened.

Great location as a student being right in the city centre. No problems with the wifi. Some lettering in the court yard area from people in the accommodation. Social experience has been limited so far due to the COVID restrictions. Potential is there with the social spaces. Good common room. Hope to use these more now they are open.

Has been good personally so far. Although having bigger windows would definitely help the tenant feel stuffy or claustrophobic. Having a terrace to relax would be great too because some people find great comfort in heights and a good view. Accommodation is good but the place is full because no one tends to mingle so many having more social events would encourage everyone to indulge with others outside their circles. Review of the room accommodation structure alone is definitely very good.
