"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.

"great value for money"
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 recommendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent value for money, and the staff are great"
This is a very functional, clean, but pretty basic hotel - in total great value for money. The rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable. The staff are overworked and wearing about 10 "hats" each - but hardworking, friendly and very service oriented. Will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good quality hotel"
Clean but small minimalist rooms Need wifi in roomsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was close to offices where I was working"
It was okay. Nothinf special. Big problem was no WiFi in room and cost of internet access.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent hotel, well recommended and would stay again. Very polite reception people. Did'nt have breakfast so can't comment on it but am sure it would be ok.. Ideal for the Rail station when bashing Power Cars on the GW too.....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and comfortable, perfect for 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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good value, good night's sleep"
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.

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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"lovely clean room"
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.

"Avoid like the Plague"
Tiny rooms, Tiny beds, Noisy, Busy check in, no car park info of where you can get cheap parking on website. The room was clean however. A terrible experience and one which I will not be repeating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent stay. Very quick check in!"
Very happy with our stay. When we booked online we were given a family room for 2. When we checked in we were given a double but as they were fully booked we were given a complimentary breakfast that was fantastic! We used to stay next door in novatel but will be staying at ibis from now on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small hotel but clean and great location"
The hotel location, very close to the train station and few minutes walking from the shops is great. The hotel is small and so are the rooms but they are clean and comfortable. The hotel staff are friendly and always ready to helpGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Poor service, booking wasnt confirmed"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Basic but very clean and comfortable. Slightly pricey in my opinion but the all Reading hotels seems to be pretty costly - goodness only knows why.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfy beds & great location"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location !!"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location and reasonably priced"
Convenient to the trains, buses and centre of town. Clean and modern basic hotel. Similar to many hotels in the Nordics. Good breakfast or you can pop out to several nearby coffee shops. Free internet, albeit a bit slow. The bed was unexpectedly good- very comfy. Will book at the Reading Ibis again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for one night stay and great beds!"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Did exactly what an Ibis should do - no better, no worse. Happy to stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stopped here in May and was very pleased. Clean rooms, accommodating staff and a decent nights sleep. Would definitely return if im in the area for a night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nothing Fancy, but Comfy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I keep going back here ..."
... because it's unfailingly good. Staff change each time but are always extremely helpful and pleasant. Room is always spotless. Bed is comfy. Noise levels are low. Rates are also low. And it's slap bang in the centre of town.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just Dull - worth the money ?"
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.

"Fine for a no frills Football stay"
Clean and functional. No complaints. Will use again. Location is perfect for town centre, rail station and football links.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean and comfortable in centre of town so a good locationGenuine Expedia guest review
Stayed 1 night. Lovely hotel. Never stayed in a ibis hotel before. In centre of reading 5 minutes from station. Every thing you need around you.very clean. Friendly staff. Easy check in.would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice enough but not luxury"
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 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed one night with my partner to visit friends in Reading - cheap, well organised central hotel, room was modern and clean. Despite being located in the very centre of the town our room was quiet. All in all, very happy - would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel on a good location. The room wasn't very big but it was comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good hotel with friendly staff. Room compact, bed comfortable. Shower not working properly, either too hot or too cold. Big minus is the parking, not onsite, it's behind the hotel and you have to walk up a hill to get there, not ideal if you have a heavy suitcase to carry like we did!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Does what it says in the literature"
Arrived late - selected family room to ensure a double bed, got allocated twin where single beds very narrow. This was sorted next day as I was moved to a double room. Efficient re-allocation but no apology! It's a bog standard good value hotel. Breakfast quite good value at £7.95Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice efficient centrally located hotel."
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good location to railstation and town center"
good hotel for a short stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent for a budget hotel"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice welcome from front desk room was lovely and clean bed really comfy tv had best picture i ever saw in a hotel room and shower was massive plenty of room to move around inGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in great location"
Stayed here with my mum for a girlies shopping trip. Hotel is great location! 5 min walk from train station. There are pubs, restaurants & shops less than a 5 min walk. Stayed here a couple of times. Always had very clean, well equipped rooms. Beds are very comfortable!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good value; perfectly good"
I just needed a good, comfortable, convenient room for the night. Job done. Nice reception and quality staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, modern & conveniently located hotel"
For the price, we were pleased with this hotel in the center of Reading. We were on the top floor and had a good view over the town, the room was clean and had everything needed for a quick stay. The design was modern and the lobby was very well done. My only gripe was the noisy pipes at night, not terrible but just loud enough to be noticeable - if […] you're a light sleeper you will want to avoid the top floor. Also, worth pointing out that the car park is just around the corner and the hotel can validate your ticket when you check out so that you only pay £10. The car park does not give a good first impression of Reading but don't let it put you off - we went to uni here and it's safer then it looks!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Small-ish room but pleasant stay"
My family was visiting me and stayed there for a couple of nights. Staff were friendly and helpful, and location was good. Facility and breakfast very good. Room was a bit small but acceptable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staying the room was kind of like living in a plasic box from Ikea. God help humanity if this kind of sterile look is is our future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, reasonable price"
Had a great stay here. I think parking should be clearly explained. NCP car park charges, you must stay in the car park for 24hours to qualify for a discount from the hotel. If you stay overnight you will have to pay £17.10 for parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It is not the first time that I stay in IBIS Reading. You have the new bedrooms and the old one. New ones are much better of course. Employeesl are nice, helpful and often speak French or Spanish if needed. The IT system need improvement and getting an invoice seems very heavy process.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed over night after a wedding at the town hall. The location was excellent for that although we did have to walk through the crowds of people out in reading to get back to our room. However, once we were in the hotel we couldn't hear any noise from outside or from inside the hotel. The room was spotless and the shower was lovely! Although the […] facilities were quite basic they were perfect for what we needed and the ironing was very very useful before we left for the wedding. Check in and out being at 12 was also very useful for what we needed. We would definitely use ibis for an overnight stay again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Value Hotel, Close to Train Station"
We stayed here to allow us to catch the early morning RailAir to Heathrow. Stopping at Reading was much cheaper and more convenient than staying near Heathrow. The hotel is a budget hotel, but is better, in my opinion than a Travelodge (room better decorated, nicer bathroom, better linen). The room was nice and quiet and check-in / check-out was ea […] sy.
