Ians Couples - 28/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I wasn't expecting too much from a budget hotel, so I was surprised by the size of the room and helpfulness of the staff. We had everything we needed and when a couple of unforeseen issues arose they were dealt with promptly. The only downside was the off site parking. Although heavily subsidised, which I appreciated, it was still quite a way to drag a couple of suitcases. All that said, I would stay again and be happy to recommend the hotel to friends and family.

Dear IAN S, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the ibis Reading Centre. I am delighted that generally you were satisfied with your stay but I do apologize for the issue with the key cards and the kettle.

The location is very good. You have to adjust the noise of the air conditioner, the water in the shower comes sometimes cold sometimes hot, and the beds are too tight

Hazel Couples - 27/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great location for access to central Reading. Facilities were clean and bed comfy. Like most hotels the room got quite stuffy at night and wasn’t clear how to get some cool air blasting through. However overall stay was pleasant for the one night stay.

davidernstsmith 28/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Ideally situated for the railway station. Welcoming manager. Marvellous breakfast with delightful restaurant staff. Otherwise a typical IBIS room as you'd find everywhere including Belgium and Germany.

Dear davidernstsmith, Thank you very much for your review. I am so glad to see that you had a pleasant stay with us and so much appreciate your kind words regarding the team and location. Hope to see you back again very soon and we will work more harder to get a 5* next time:) Kind regards, Andras Koczur General Manager

No Problems at all.

RonaldMarks Business - 20/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

There were no issues with my say, this IBIS is in the centre of Reading, and can be quite busy, but even with this, my room was quiet. The room was comfortable, with no issues to report. I would stay here again on business.

Dear RonaldMarks, Thank you very much for the fantastic 5* review. I am so delighted that you had a very pleasant stay with us. Hope to see you back again very soon with another great experience. Kind regards, Andras Koczur General Manager
