Sometimes they say you get what you pay for. This hotel seemed quite cheap but was centrally located and within easy reach of where our daughter lives. The room was small but sufficient for our needs and the bathroom was like a xspsule but modern and easy to use. The downside in the room rate which made it attractive for...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 January 2017 via mobile

This hotel is extremely central and close to the station - great location. The rooms had a modern nice decor and were very clean. We liked the black wooden flooring in the room - more hygienic than carpet. The beds were comfortable, could have done with two pillows though. The bathroom had great lighting and a fantastic walk in shower....

I always stay here when I go out in Reading with my work colleagues. Great location right in the centre of town and it always swift check in and clean room. No frills but I only use it to sleep. Great value for money

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...

Really nice modern place, in great central location, parking very close-by at ncp, however overnight parking costs £22. Very easy to get to as near the Railway Station also. The hotel and staff is very nice. Reception has a bar, and nice big seating area which is a bonus. Room's are very nice. Beds are comfortable but not in premier...

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room for such a low price. Very convenient location in the city center - we weren't bothered by the outside noise as we were on the 10th floor. Clean and excellent value for money.!

One night stay with friends. It's a great location for shopping and a several bars and restaurants right on the doorstep. Room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom 'pod' was a clean though a little compact and could have done with a face/hair towel not just body towel, the shower was nice. Bed was comfy.

The hotel is lovely, nice room and facilities. Staff are polite and friendly. I do think that their snacks are over priced, after traveling just over 3 hours on a train to get here I needed something light to eat. Selected the cheese and ham toastie for £4.95 which would have been good if it was decent bread had some...

We used Ibis at the end of December as an overnight stop-off prior to our onward journey. For £40 all in (including breakfast) it was an absolute bargain considering you're right in the centre of Reading and the breakfast is on a par with most of the higher end hotels too. Don't expect too much though. For example a budget...
