Visited Reading for my cousins wedding and originally booked 2 rooms but due to a change adjusted my booking a week prior to just 1 comfortable room. I have stayed at Ibis in other cities but this by far was the more modern. Rooms are perfectly formed everything you will need for a nights stay and very comfortable. Check in...

Everything about the IBIS in Reading was warm, inviting, colourful and new. The staff were very helpful and professional. We booked for one night. The rooms were clean - much larger than expected - comfortable and had every thing you could need. Travelling with my 87yr old Mother-in-law (who sometimes gets hungry late at night), being able to order hot...

Room was immaculate. Someone obviously did their homework and pinned down exactly what travellers need in a hotel room and they provide exactly that at a very competitive rate. It's not super luxurious, but very clean and comfortable. Really can't fault it.

This was my home for almost 2 weeks in Reading and I am happy to have chosen Ibis. Fabulous location, very near the town center. Staff was very welcoming. Room was spacious for me. Breakfast was quite affordable and you can stay as long as you like. Just a suggestion: might want to consider putting an iron on every room...

Surprised this hotel was on my company's list. This was the only one not booked, so no choice in having to stay here. Maybe I stayed in an older room, but....Bathroom looked like it was built for a cruise or RV. It was plopped as a unit inside the room., most basic of basics. The mattress is on a wood...

My visit at IBIS in Reading was goof. I requested a room from the top floor and I wish was fulfilled. The staff were very helpful and effective. Hotel was rather new and stylish. Rooms were moderate and bathroom was rather small, but sufficient. Breakfast was good and I got a smile and good service from the waitress. Hotel is...

Stayed here in Feb '17 and loved the area. 1st time to the UK and the Ibis Reading was a great little hotel for the $$. Steps to Reading Station and shopping galore around the hotel. When I go back - hoping to stay here again!!!

This is a minimalist hotel with everything you need but nothing superfluous. It is spanking new looking (I am not sure how new) and spotlessly clean. The check-in process is completed by friendly staff in tee shirts and jeans, entered into a mobile phone. You are given a secure key card which also unlocks your floor on the elevator. Once...

Easy to book. Clean and friendly. Good location. The hotel was located very centrally in Reading. This meant there was very easy access to all local facilities and transport. I would recommend a stay in this hotel.

Very large, very central, well run & reasonably priced establishment, but on a busy city centre street with poor parking provision- there is a NCP muti-storey car park nearby, but it is extremely expensive, and rather scruffy and unpleasant. The staff (all of Polish, Spanish, or other Continental origin), were efficient & helpful (and good English speakers) and there was...
