Went here my first time for a single night stay, travelling for businness.
The hotel is really in central Reading, at 5 minutes walk from the Stationa and close to the shopes, restaurants, pubs etc.
Arrived at the reception and the environment was noisy due to high volume music, so it was difficult to understand the receptionist.
The room is ultra-simple, minimalist, with no mini-bar, no iron, nothing but a very confortable bed and a big HD tv. There is a 30 minutes free wifi internet connection available.
Bathroom is ok, nice soap and foam present.
Used the restaurant in the evening, open until 10pm. Had a good Fish'n'Chips and a Cider for 19 GBP.
Since there's no bar in the room, you can take beverages/snacks from the machines, but have coins with you.
Breakfast is excellent with a huge variety of any juice, english and american breakfast, cereals, and everything you can think to.
