About Malmaison Reading, Reading

Stylish hotel and brasserie in historic station building

Opposite Reading Station

Malmaison Reading occupies the oldest surviving station hotel in the world, built in 1844, and is opposite Reading railway station in the city center. You'll be within a 5-minute walk of the Oracle shopping center and the Reading Museum and Town Hall.

Ancient ruins, nightlife

For a taste of the town's history, it's a 5-minute stroll to the 19th-century Forbury Gardens, site of the ruins of the 12th-century Reading Abbey. There's plenty of nightlife, too, including at the Hexagon music venue and Highlight Comedy Club, both within a 5-minute drive.

Cocktails and French food

The buzzy Brasserie features industrial-chic decor and serves French-influenced classic dishes. At the laid-back Mal Bar, you can settle into a comfy sofa and enjoy coffees and pastries during the day, then move on to their signature and classic cocktails in the evening.

Chic decor, free WiFi

The 75 stylish guestrooms and suites are decorated with rich fabrics and feature tech perks such as free WiFi and flat-panel TVs. You can take advantage of the 24-hour room service if you're staying in, and enjoy the power shower and luxury toiletries.

I had an amazing experience at the MalMaison - Reading. The location was perfect, the accommodations were very very comfy and modern. I did not have much interaction with the staff, but our brief encounters where polite, helpful and friendly!

Malmaison Reading, Reading
Amazing room with HUGE bath
Amazing room with very comfortable bed and a huge wooden bath. We easily both fitted in the bath - in fact sure the whole family could had fitted in there. Very quiet even though it’s in the town centre opposite the train station. Would highly recommend .... and we will be back.
