« The Price of a Drink »

A comfortable hotel in a central location where I've stayed previously. The normal room rates are expensive, the offers reasonable. However £2 for a small bottle of water is the epitome of extortion. Accor really needs to do something about this "rip-off".

ibisReading, General Manager at Ibis Reading Centre, responded to this review

Dear bluedixie, Thank you for posting your very valuable review of the hotel - We are pleased that you find the hotel to be comfortable and enjoy staying with us. It is not our intention to "rip-off" anyone. Our room rates are in line with activity and local market performance. In addition, our Food & Beverage offer is priced accordingly with our type of establishment. The team looks forward to seeing you soon again at ibis Reading Centre. Kind Regards, Jordi Pena

« Excellent hotel in Reading City Centre »

Good value for money at this central hotel in Reading; just 2 mins from the train station and the same for the Oracle shopping centre. Rooms on the upper floors are quieter with a good bar and restaurant on the 1st floor. Quick check-in and out at reception. One of the best breakfasts I have experienced.

ibisReading, General Manager at Ibis Reading Centre, responded to this review

Dear Michael F, We love your review! :) We are very pleased to learn that you had such an enjoyable stay and that our location was perfectly suited to your needs! The breakfast team, in particular, cannot wait to have you soon again at the hotel so you can enjoy more of our hospitality. Kind Regards, Jordi Pena

« Recent stay »

The cups were left not cleaned on the table, led one to doubt whether room was cleaned after all. The shower was very poor, water was only dripping out. Previously I chose the hotel for its reasonably powerful shower even though I know the hotel is a basic one. Very disappointed this round. Staff failed to find my booking and simply created a new one with another amount requested.

ibisReading, General Manager at Ibis Reading Centre, responded to this review

Dear Wai Yee Susanna K, Many thanks for taking the time to share your review online - I am very sorry that your experience at the hotel was disappointing and I will personally look with the team into the issues and concerns that you have raised to avoid future re-occurrence. We hope to welcome you soon again at ibis Reading with an entirely hassle-free stay. Kind Regards, Jordi Pena

« Good clean place »

Got a good night's sleep here. I went to Reading for business and needed a good place to stay. It's centrally located and there are also places to eat around the area that are open late. It is near the Reading Train station and near the city centre.

« Good location but with limitations »

Located on Friar Street right in the middle of Reading but finding parking difficult in one way system. Friar Street "very lively" on a Saturday night and street noise audible even on the 14th floor! We were given a "disabled" room with no cupboard to hang clothes. There were a couple of pegs in the bathroom which was a wet room but not suitable to hang clothes. We were told we could charge extras to our room on check in but then told that was not the case when wishing to buy drinks later. The room was clean but really bland and basic. I would stay hear for a stag night or on my own on business. Maybe that is the target audience?
