"wouldnt stay again."
standard of rooms poor. Broken sink in first room, wet floor in second room, third room ok. Rooms basic but ok. Beds uncomfortable and very creaky. Cooked Breakfast practically cold. Nothing done when we complained. Right in the centre of Reading so good for shopping. 2 mins from Oracle Mall. Wouldn't stay again.

Right in the centre of the Town and just a short walk (2 minutes) from the station, The room was small but ideal for one night and about what was expected. Would stay here again for a one night stay.

"eEnsible hotel close to Rail terminal"
This is a very sensible hotel, well thought out,and efficiently run. The staff is efficient and very helpful. The general design of the hotel is modern, but not as austere as European hotels often are. My room was larger than you normally get for the price in the UK. The bathroom, although small, is well designed. There is a walk-in shower, similar to many you encounter in the UK, but this time the design is so good that water does not leak out on to the floor and there is a surprising amount of room in it. The restaurant is good.. Being only a few hundred steps from the Station and the Railair bus from Heathrow, this is ideal for people with luggage who want to save money on taxis. It is conceivable that one could use this hotel, and Reading, as a reasonably priced base for exploring London, Oxford,and cities like Birmingham and Manchester. Several bus routes service the street in front of the hotel, so moving around the city cheaply is easy. There is also a taxi stand in the next block. There is a major shopping street a few hundred steps farther south, and there are many restaurants, pubs, etc. in the area. The city museum is just down the street.

Very uninspiring and disappointing as we had stayed in a wonderful IBIS in Paris and expected so much more. I travel a lot and made my choice mainly on the fact of a previous experience and not having stayed in the other Reading Hotels available. The room was fairly shabby very small and the facilities very tired and unwelcoming after having got off a flight from Australia. I won't be staying again.

Very centrally located and beat my expectations in terms of room comfort/cleanliness. Staff is friendly, room was clean and spacious, shower was also unusually spacious and clean. Usually budget hotels have tiny showers, but this one was very good. Overall a very good stay at this price, highly recommend

Enjoyable stay, ideal for rail station. Street outside is a bit hectic with people going to the nightlife etc but generally ok. Plenty of Cig ends on the floor outside the hotel which makes it look untidy.

"Great budget hotel!"
The ibis Reading is a great budget hotel in a very central location. The room size was absolutely fine, there was free wifi, small flat screen tv, tea and coffee making facilities and a unique style of ensuite shower room. The staff that we came across were very polite. We stayed on the 12th floor, room 1211 as I asked for somewhere quiet, it was pretty quiet most of the time but because there was a room above us we could hear them moving round, the thing that wasn't so nice is that we could hear them going to the toilet and when they flushed it sounded like it was coming from our bathroom as it was pretty loud, we could also hear them having a shower like they were having one in our bathroom. The door to our ensuite was very noisy to close which isn't fab when someone is in bed trying to sleep and the other one gets up to go to the loo, so maybe this could be something that could be looked at. All in all this hotel was great, and the noise issues were really only minor issues as it is a budget hotel and a great price for a central area :)

"High service level"
There was an unfortunate problem with the booking system in most of Reading on our arrival day. IBIS brought us to another hotel 20 min away in taxi the first night. It was obviously annoying to have to move, but the staff rendered a fantastic service throughout the unfortunate situation. They refunded the stay, serviced us with drinks and sandwiches and made sure that breakfast on the other hotel was additionally included the following morning, as well as booked a taxi for the morning too. The second night we stayed with IBIS and they were very serviceminded and helpful in any regard. I can only recommend a hotel which handles a stressed situation like IBIS did and puts all efforts in giving their guests a pleasant stay even in a situation like ours.

"Nice,pleasant and fairly cheap"
One night stay. Parking was easier then expected & with the voucher the hotel hand you works out at £12,abit steep. Reception area nice,staff friendly and handy little bar. The room is fairly small,basic and with a strange bathroom pod in the corner?,never stayed in an Ibis before so might be there thing. The hotel was based on a busy,late drinking and vibrant road although couldnt hear this noise. Had an issue of young revellers coming home around 4am partying on the landings,rang down to reception who came to move them on but had noise and shouting through thin doors/walls until 6am,this spoiled what would have been a nice,pleasant stay in a nice,centrally located,budget hotel stay.

"Reasonable for the price"
Good hotel for the price. Not a huge fan of the laminate flooring but I suppose it makes it easier to clean. Our bathroom door was falling off it's hinges so made a bang when closing. This was rather annoying at night time when trying to be quiet. Staff very helpful. Could give better directions to the "official" car park. We ended up having to pay an arm and a leg at the station car park first. Couldn't get subtitles on the TV which was rather annoying with us both being deaf.

"Handy Hotel Break"
Stayed at this conveniently placed hotel for one night. Modern low cost hotel. Service was good, room was clean and staff were friendly. Bed was hard and air conditioning noisy, but generally speaking room rate good value for money. Our only criticism would be the price of a breakfast over £8 per head compared with £2.99 at a well know hostelry over the road.

Everything was great excepting the cleaners. One walked straight into the room at 08.00am without knocking I was still in bed. 2 hours later another one walks in without warning and I'm stood there naked along with the Mrs who had just thrown her towel back to the shower. I was not bothered but the Mrs was and I think the cleaner got a bit of a shock!

"Ibis stay July 2015"
It was the first time I stayed at the ibis in Reading, I was looking for an alternative to the Travelodge but not wanting not a big hike in the rate. The location is great, only a few minutes from the train station, size of room adequate, cleanliness was great. The window was tiny, which doesn't bother me per se and there was a slight damp over te carpets and bed linen. Not sure what the cause was amd should my stay have been longer than one night I would have raised it at reception. Oversll it was a satisfactory experience, what I expected at that rate.
