Booked to stay just one night, easy to find not quite sure about reception area as it is just a bar/ club type entrance so not a typical hotel reception. Staff very friendly, all basic amenities, tea/coffee etc in room. Bathroom really good, comfy beds and quiet a/c. Room décor totally hideous, a mix of floral, stripes, spots, mirrors, contemporary,... More

We stayed at the Pentahotel on July 19th so that we could attend a local wedding and reception. The hotel we ideally situated for travel around Reading and the room was good value for money, exceeding our expectations. We welcomed the fresh, calm and most importantly, cool room, that greeted us when we returned from the function, hot, tired and... More

If you like cool and relaxed hotels then this is for you! Plenty of casual sofas around a large reception/bar area and well priced drinks. The room was fine -huge bed and clean. Nice bathroom with lovely toiletries. The only real negative was the reception area. Receptionist greeted us (it was her first day on the job) and when she... More

Thank you very much for your review.

I have stayed here for 2 nights Monday and Tuesday (July 14 and 15) and It was really nice and very classy, the room was colorful, the aircon was ok, and breakfast food was really good, and the boy who is in the till on breakfast was very kind and welcoming (he is not english, maybe he is thailander) but...

Living in London, myself and a few friends visited Nirvana spa in Reading a few years back and decided on becoming memebers after we liked it so much, Upon visiting with my fiance last year we discovered Pentahotel. Pentahotel is such a lovely stay and never fails to deliver. The price is reasonable, and being in the heart of the... More

Stayed July 3-5, 2014 Good: 1. Comfortable bed 2. Quiet at night 3. Clean room Bad: 1. WiFi does not work. Spoke to front desk, who connected me with "tech support" by phone. They manually allocated additional bandwidth for my phone (by IP address). That worked for the remainder of the night but the problem returned the next day, despite... More

Stayed here for one night and found the stay to be very disappointing. When booking the hotel you feel you are getting a great deal in a modern and '4 star' hotel...you arrive and realise that this is not the case! More like a bar come hostel We arrived at around 5pm and finally checked in at 5.50pm. The reason... More

Thank you Penta Hotel, Reading for making our stay so enjoyable. All the staff we met were very professional, helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were great and set us up for the day nicely. They even offered Prosecco for breakfast!!!. We did find the lack of a proper wardrobe a bit strange and only one drawer (well more of a... More

The staff were very welcoming. The room was not massive - but it was trendy and was clean. We stayed on a Friday night and Reading centre was just about as busy as it will ever get in an evening. We ate in Loch Fyne Restaurant which was ok. We returned to the hotel in the evening. Again very good... More

Right smack bang in the centre of Reading. I couldn’t find any car parking facilities, however there is a multi-storey connected which will cost around £15 for 24 hours. From the outside the hotel could do with some revamping, it looks dated and not exceptionally appealing. It is a pleasant surprise once you enter as the interior is of modern... More
