“Ibis Reading”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Central located sleep factory - does what is says on the tin, clean, comfortable quiet rooms with pod style bathroom. Great if you just need a bed at a fair price in Reding center. Breakfast was good, bar area a little basic, but plenty of good places to eat and drink very close.

Location is great, just minutes from the train station and the Oracle. That was convenient as I arrived at midnight with AirRail non stop bus from Heathrow.

Great little city with everything you need, and I felt very safe there, day and night.

The room was basic, but very clean, and bigger than the one I stayed in in London. I was bit cold first night and I called reception, and in five minutes the girl brought me extra heater for the room.

Breakfast was adequate, had everything I usually eat for breakfast back home.

The staff was great help, very prompt to help with my booking, as my company was paying, and I needed pro-forma invoice. Thanks for everything, one more time.

Standard Accor facility but what's more important is their staffs are highly professional and exceptionally helpful.
I arrived after a long journey and found a document missing and I needed to print out, the lady on duty she offered me help and had my document ready on time. Second day after the meeting I found my earring gone missing and went back to ask if they had found anything - the lady on the front desk didn't take it lightly and she followed up for few times with the housekeeping staff.
This is a kind of service I wish to receive in every single ACCOR hotel.

Minus - No WIFI in room. I don't mind to pay, I just wish to have that convenience.

The Ibis is great for a night out as it is ideally situated 4 minutes from the train station and the Oracle. There are plenty of places to eat, as well as fast food restuarants and bars/clubs. The hotel sell hot food as well as snacks and alcohol, we found the menu to be very reasonably priced.

We all commented on how comfortable the beds were and though the rooms were basic, they were clean and suitable for what we needed them for.

We would not usually choose this type of hotel however for value for money and cleanliness we could not complain.

It is worth mentioning that we only paid £40 for a double room, however this was an advanced booking which upped to £80 on the Ibis website when we wanted to book a second room. The Hilton is worth a visit for around £60 and is just outside Reading town center.

I received a discounted rate so the value was superb. The rooms were clean and everyone in my group of friends had a fantastic stay. The only issue i has was that the concierge did not know the area well enough to give directions. Other than that, FANTASTIC stay!

Stayed in the Reading Ibis for a business trip for one night and all the staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. A definite recommendation from me for this budget hotel.
