Convenient locations, very friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable basic room. Nice breakfast for a good price. The only problem is the cumbersome procedure for commanding the lifts!

Rooms are comfortable and a no fuss hotel. Fantastic location but limited road access for taxi /vehicles due to peak hour access restrictions on Friar street - needs to be mentioned in booking site details, More convenience and better rates required for private car parking.

Good location of hotel, good customer service. I didn't try the meals so no comment. I was extremely disappointed with the housekeeping staff. Seems like they just pulled the bedcovers. Room was not dusted or swept. The bathroom was not cleaned thoroughly. They definitely have to restock towels.

I'd actually give this 3.5 stars. The shower pods let these places down for me...too small & soak everything. However room was clean, bed very comfy, staff keen to help with everything we asked for (ironing board, first floor rooms, wine glasses etc.) and good location for station and city centre.

Stayed on a Friday night for shopping, eating out and the cinema which were all in a 5-10 minute walking distance. The accommodation was brilliant - friendly, helpful staff and clean and comfy room. Our room was ready upon a 10am arrival, but we could have left our bags in the lobby. Downside was the rowdy, drunken fellow guests who returned at 3am and left the tv on full blast and their door open.

I stayed here for two nights and it's just what you'd expect from an Ibis - good value compared to other hotels in the area (which seem to be disproportionately expensive) and you get a comfortable bed and a decent enough room. There are no bells and whistles but for business purposes it works well. I was surprised by the number of beggars outside the hotel but the hotel cannot be held responsible for Reading being a bit of a dump! I would stay here again.

I have stayed at several Ibis Hotels and this was not as good as the rest. It was a very busy weekend so we were informed on check in that we would need to wait for a room, fair enough. However the staffs local knowledge was poor, we were sent in totally wrong direction to get the bus and breakfast was a joke, one poor girl checking in guests, clearing tables, topping up the food, milk, mugs etc. so it was a shambles. She was very apologetic but the whole experience was poor and at £7.95 not cheap. Guests had left takeaway tarts near the lift door on our floor which were left there for a considerable length of time.

The hotel and staff were absolutely lovely. Only complaint is all the surrounding rooms were party central, banging on the walls and doors, running mad in the corridors, shouting and playing loud music. We had our toddler with us and it kept her up a few hours longer than usual.

have stayed at this ibis before and everything was great. This time there was a problem with the shower water not draining very well - too slow so maybe partial blockage. I mentioned to reception staff early morning on way out. Next morning problem was worse - so had not been fixed. I was checking out anyway - hope it was fixed for next person into room 504.

Although we had confirmed reservations for 2 rooms, hotel didn't have the information. We had to wait for over 1 hour to get second room. Hotel staff was slow in handing the situation. Hotel staff also could not guide us to the parking location for the hotel and we wasted over 1 hour trying to locate the spot. Very disappointed.

We've stayed here twice before and had no hesitation in staying again for our trip to the 02 to see the Eagles. The bed is really comfy, the 'pod' ensuite works very well and there is space to sit down. Being so close to the station makes this a perfect base for trips into London.

Comfy beds, clean rooms and great location. Food menu could be improved but everything else was good. Would certainly recommend staying there. Not badly priced either, especially for a hotel in the centre of town. Parking is at the back of the hotel, but was no good for us as we were in a van and therefore to tall.... eventually found street parking close by.

I love the Ibis re-brand and I love their beds! They are the most comfortable beds ever for a relatively inexpensive hotel. The functionality of the room suits me. It may not be lush but it's practical, has everything I need and everything works! What I also love about Ibis is the staff - most of whom are European (a huge plus in my book) - friendly, helpful and bi-lingual. They have a great attitude and will always help whenever they can. Good location and my room was quiet, despite the mayhem of Reading on a Saturday night! (Had never been before). Thank heavens for a quiet hotel to hide in and a great night's sleep.

Well, I think for £90 a night its all a little dull... I was placed in a room on the 9th floor.. with a disabled shower room... I don't mind that but it was well worn and the shower head only just hovered above my head (I'm only 5,10!) .. and the water went from luke warm to extremely hot ? The room was clean but so basic.. with a broken remote control back... the Bar closes early... I'm not sure I will use again.. but the central location was very useful.

Hotel was fine if you are not spending much time there! Very basic but clean and does the job, very comfy beds but rooms could do with some extras like a bin! And carpets on the floors would be a good idea. More towels needed in rooms and if requesting towels should be brought to room not expected to go and collect from reception!! Overall get what you pay for but personally would rather pay a bit more and get better facilities

Good experience as previous visits. I user this hotel when visiting Reading as its central, close to train station and can get taxis as required. The rooms are small and simple but functional and completely fine for shortish visits. Breakfast is good and there is plenty of choice. I shall continue to use this hotel when visisting Reading.

The location is second to none - literally around the corner from the train station and all the busses. Yet this was the quietest night I've had in Reading thanks to the good double glazing. The bed was Brilliant, as was the shower pressure. They also had free internet connection which was very fast. This is, however, a budget hotel so decor is very.. budget (but not grim!), the breakfast is basic - but adequate and there is no gym. Good option for business travellers.

Good location about 1 minute walk away from Reading station. Despite the false fire alarm meaning that I had to walk down 9 floors and stand in the cold, it was a good stay.

I really dislike the locks on your bathroom doors but you still have a bathroom so that's always good. Very clean and very convenient.

Clean, comfortable accomodation though a little cramped for space. Room service really does need to be available at all times as advertised, not having to wait up to thirty minutes due to lack of desk staff.
