Hotel itself is ok, but the parking arrangements should be stated better on the website. Staff were not clear on the parking when we arrived, we asked if we could come and go as we pleased from the ncp car park, but this was not the case without paying each time. This should be stated!!

If you've stayed at an IBIS hotel previously, it will come as no surprise to find that they have elevated the concept of 'basic hotel room' to a whole new level. My first thought on opening the door was that I was back in Single Officers Quarters in barracks in the 1980's. Everything is reduced down to the absolute lowest... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location for both reading and London. For around £15 return you can travel to london on the quick train arriving in only 30 minutes right into the centre. The hotel itself is a convenient location and is fairly priced. The rooms are of an adequate price, the only thing letting them down is the... More

I was here for three nights and had I not paid in advance, I would have left after stopping at the front desk -- first, most employees don't speak English. First room I was given (1103) was horrible -- the carpet was so dirty that I was afraid to walk on it -- second, the heater was so loud that... More

Stayed overnight on business trip and was happy to see some refurbishment since my last visit. The lobby with small bar is now more attractive and the new beds in the rooms were also good. WiFi connectivity has improved and has now a good coverage with options to choose free or chargeable connection. The overall experience is really basic, but... More

We booked a double room for three nights. The hotel is right in the center, less than 5 mins from both the train station and the Oracle riverside shopping center. Perfect location. The value for money was also good - 84 euros per night. Service at reception was great - specially in the evening when my friends and I stayed... More

This hotel is right in the centre of Reading close to the railway station. It is a modern hotel with limited restaurant facilities but not really needed in the city centre. Rooms are pretty standard and basic but have all amenities with the 'pod' bathroom which has a large powerful shower but no bath. Toiletries are combined soap. and shampoo... More
