Reviewed 23 November 2011

The HOF is very well located in the Reading Town Center, apartments are very good and well maintained. HOF team is very well supportive and will make sure all your needs are attended. There are several restaurants / shopping places just a minute away, local transport is just across the street. The only limitations is the parking and if you take front side apartment, it is very noisy especially on week ends..!

Room Tip: If you are looking for 1 bed room apartment then 108 / 208 / 308 / 408 are good ones, if you are com...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your humble and honest review of your stay with us and for taking the time to post the review. We are delighted that you found City Wall House to be a great place to stay whilst on business due to its ideal location and amenities. We are also delighted at your acknowledgement of our efforts towards providing exceptional customer service and ensuring all of our guests' needs are met.
With regards to parking, as City Wall House is located right in the centre of Reading, parking is restricted due to public transport routes through the town. However, we do have a car park available at our Stanshawe Court location just a 3 minute walk from City Wall House, parking is available upon request. We also appreciate your concerns with noise in our frontward facing apartments due to city centre location and will always do our best to allocate apartments on the back side of the building.
Your feedback is highly valued and we hope to welcome you back to City wall House when you next visit Reading on business.

Kind Regards,
Flori Carp
Reginal Manager

HoF is a very conveniently located apartment.. touching the town center, 5 minutes walk from Reading station and 10 minutes from Thames Valley. Tesco & ATM are stone's throw away. Rates are reasonable for the kind of service. For me the stay was pleasant as I never had to think about planning to go to market as it was when I stayed at another hotel away from Town Center. Cleanliness is proficient and your apartment is cleaned once in a week. Apart from changing linens, your toiletries are also refurbished. Kitchen was well equipped. The view from apartment window never lets you feel isolated in case not many of your friends stay around. Otherwise TV has good options to keep you busy. Router in every room gives you a smooth wifi connectivity.

This isn't the place to stay if you're looking for a peaceful environment away from bustling city. But it's the place to be if you generally are occupied in other activities like your job or roaming around Reading.

Room Tip: Take a one bedroom rather than a studio.

We, as part of a project for our company, travelled to UK in a team of 20. Reading is famous for its town centre and residential facilities all across UK, right from Heathrow, as our chauffer was holding our play card. It falls on the juncture of West Street, Broad Mall Street & Oxford Street, all renowned for their shopping spree. In comparison with other nearby hotels, HOF provides best-in service, classy furniture and all utility equipments, right from dish-washer, washing machine, fridge, TV, free internet, geyser, room heater, and what not. Price-wise, its is at par stay-per-night, but if you are looking for longer stay may be more than 2 weeks, then they will offer handsome discount for you.

What a delight to find .... my husband has business in Reading occasionally, and we've tried many different hotels, but find them expensive and noisy. This one bedroom apartment is huge, quiet, and with all the conveniences.... washer, complete kitchen set up for cooking, lounge area. bright and airy. And so convenient to everything: train, bus, shopping, dining.
We've been in England for 10 days, and this is the first place we've stayed that is actually WARM in January! Totally adjustable heat, and the hot water is actually too hot!
Free internet is great. The only down side is that I find the bed hard.

Fully Equipped studio apartments on Reading's High Street. A 5 minute walk from the Train Station, bus station and RailAir from Heathrow. Also a 5 minute walk to shops and groceries. Be sure to request a unit facing away from street, if possible. No air conditioning but the windows do open. Also, heat and hot water are on during the night and passively stored during the day. We were never too cold, but we were often too hot. Neighbors' cooking odours could be a problem, but we really did enjoy all the convenience of home, including a washing machine.
