Reviewed 6 August 2014

Stayed here on a recent Sunday night. All I ask of a hotel is that it's clean and quiet and this ticked both boxes. Decor is modern and basic, and there wasn't much natural light due to the small window, but these are not serious problems for short stays in my book. The only grouse I'd have was that the towels were a bit war and had indelible stains of some kind of them (although they were perfectly clean and hygienic otherwise). Opted out of the breakfast as I think £8 is a bit steep, but there are plenty of options in town. Overall however, this is an excellent budget hotel with a great central location, and I'd definitely stay here if I came to Reading again.

Stayed: August 2014, travelled solo

Room is clean and bed is comfortable. Good for those who are on budget. Very friendly check in staff at the reception. Walking distance to Reading train station. Hotel is in town area. Oracle shopping mall and a lot of restaurants are nearby.

Very friendly staff. Room very clean and tidy with a good shower. Excellent location for shops and nightlife, close to train station.

The self service breakfast was very reasonable and included a selection of cereals, croissants and hot food with fruit juices, tea and coffer

I have based my comments on the cost per night and my expectations were more than exceeded.

Thank-you

Room Tip: Stayed on high floor to ensure quiet room

Nice Ibis with central location.
Typical Ibis rooms so you know what to expect. Airco which was a great plus during the heat wave. Hotel reception welcoming as per updated Ibis standards. If driving in, be sure to ask the hotel beforehand for directions to the public car park where they have a deal with. No parking directly at hotel and no directions as to where to go, which got a bit confusing. Ask for a higher room as they will have better views

I stayed for one night this week. Check in staff were very friendly and gave me a top floor room quiet room when I requested it. The room was very clean and comfortable and the ac worked well. I did not have dinner and breakfast was non descript which was to be expected. However at £75 for the room it is excellent value compared to the Premier Inn. Interestingly the Ibis is right next door to the Novotel so the location is excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors where it is quiet
