I stayed in Mercure George for one week for business purposes. The hotel probably has the best location in Reading if you want to be in the centre of everything. Starbucks, Costa, Oracle Malls, and train station is nearby. With location, comes the drawback, i.e the noise. Not only coming from outside, but also from the wooden stairs/ floors in corridor. Most of the review also mention this issue, that's probably why it ranks in the middle for hotel options at Reading. If you are all for parties, then by all means this is your hotel. The amenities were basic. It has no air condition so I requested a portable fan because sometimes it get hot in mid day.
Note: in some webiste, they mention the hotel has free wi-fi in the room. It is NOT. The wi-fi is NOT free and it is only accessible from the hotel lobby, unless you get a room right on top of the lobby (which I had).
