Apartment and facilities are good. But street side apartments need to be sound proofed. Lot of noise through windows makes sleepless nights and impossible to watch TVs. Service is not good at times. I stayed for a year almost.

We stayed in a 2 bed apartment here, last April. The property is located in the heart of Reading; everything needed was just round the corner which is a big plus! The rooms were neat, though a bit small. Good for short stay

We stayed at HoF for a couple of weeks and generally we were somewhat pleased with the accommodation but would probably not stay there again if we had an alternative. The rooms were small (as expected) and the bathroom was all full of mold. Communication from the hotel staff over email wasn't always very accurate with many of our questions... More

Pleasant, spacious and clean room, central location. Perfect for a short - medium stay. Bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper, as West Street is a busy street, night and day (see below). Cereals, milk and juice, tea etc. sufficient for the first morning's breakfast were provided - a helpful touch. After that, you provide your own. Wifi... More

“The rooms facing the street are noisy at night (all night!). These are the higher numbers x05 - x08, where x is the floor number (1 - 4). I expect the lower numbers on the other side would be quieter. After the first (somewhat disturbed) night I bought some cheap earplugs and that solved the problem”

“If you are looking for 1 bed room apartment then 108 / 208 / 308 / 408 are good ones, if you are comfortable with studio then recommendation is for 105 / 205 / 305 and 405..! Other rooms are relatively smaller”
