The Pentahotel is a great hotel in the heart of Reading. Very close to the shops, bars and restaurants, we were pleasantly surprised with this hotel.
The hotel has a very arty feel to it from the moment you walk in to reception. The staff were great, especially Inga who answered every query quickly and was very friendly and helpful.
The staff at this hotel were all super friendly. As we were leaving before breakfast was served, they prepared a take away bag for us with ample pastries, yoghurt and fruit which were a nice touch.
The Room was not huge small but has plenty of space to hang clothes etc. Bed was nice, big and comfortable.
The bar in the lobby area has every drink you could want. The lounge area had a great ambience.
Parking is available a couple of streets away (few minutes walk) in a secure car park so be aware of this if you are carrying lots of luggage from the car.
As others have mentioned, the AC in the room had a loud humming noise all night and didn't really work. The room was quite hot at night.
Apart from the AC issue, I am looking forward to staying at Pentahotel again.
