If you dont expect any service . this is the place to go. They are pretty cheap , wifi is good. I havent tried food here , but must be ok . Location is very central and close to town. Easiest to get on train to anywhere , London from reading station, which is 2 minutes walk away.

I did not realize I needed to phone someone when I got there late afternoon and the café was shut to get the swipe key .Not a very inviting entrance. Also not good as I HAD TO LUG A HEAVY CASE UP THE STAIRS to my room. As I had to leave by 645 I did not get breakfast. Good... More

There's a question mark in the title only because I haven't stayed at every hotel in the world. So, theoretically, there could be a worse hotel out there, but if there is I haven’t seen it. OK, where to begin? Let’s start with the room itself: It’s tiny. It has disgusting red carpet full of rips and holes and stains... More

I marked this down slightly as the single room was in the 'not enough to swing a dead cat' variety, but everything else about it was fine. I stayed for two nights, but I think I would have been uncomfortable any longer (no chair, had to sit on bed). Location great, staff friendly, baguettes great!

This is a B&B not a hotel and as such one is at the whims of the owner rather than having the security of a brand to rely on. The key was not in the box as the booking suggested, however the owner took my call quickly and appeard with the key in a few minutes. The accomodation is poor.... More

This is an average hotel, clean and ok for short stay. It is located in Reading town center, near rail station and all major shopping centers, the Oracle, being just a few minutes walk away, ample restaurants and High street shops are very close by. The room was fairly small but adequate, the bathroom had shower cubicle and was well... More

La Baguette is a quirky little B&B above a sandwich shop in the centre of Reading. There's no lobby or check-in area - instead, you just collect your room key from the shop. According to the blurb, check-in was at 2pm but we turned up at 11.30am and were let into our room, which was a good start. We were... More

THE GOOD: Location, if you need a train or the bus to Heathrow; also, the gal who tends the cafe downstairs and who distributes B&B keys was very sweet. THE BAD: Where do I start? The driving disco beat, from just downstairs, starts about 11, just when you are trying to fall asleep. Previous to that, most of the sounds... More

Be aware that the La Baguette is only staffed by the cafe, which closes after lunch. I arrived in the evening and so had to pick up the key from a safe box, and there wasn't anyone to get the wireless code from. Apart from that it was fine. Excellent location for the station.
