Worst hotel I have ever stayed in

Customer review rating 3.4/5

Simon Business - 13/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Terrible, place is filthy and a complete maze. First room I was put in had a broken window which was stuck open making it absolutely freezing during storm Ciara. Second room, stinking. No sheets on the bed only a mattress topper. Radiators off so freezing when I got in. No radiator in the bathroom and the shower didn't work. The building should be condemned I won't be back. On reflection I shouldn't even have stayed the night, should have just walked out when I saw the state of the place.

Perfect location

Tom M. Business - 11/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Booked for one night's stay to commute to London the next day via train. Perfectly located to reach the station, took around 5 to 10 minutes walk. Right in among a host of restaurants and shops and plenty of parking options available. The room was clean and had everything I needed, ironing facilities in the room would have been a bonus. The breakfast was good, cold continental with pastries, muffins, meats and cheeses and coffee and juices. Overall, exactly what I needed and provided excellent service.

Horrible hotel

Customer review rating 3.4/5

Karen C. Business - 06/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Single bed smaller than I’ve ever seen, freezing cold room, smallest hotel room ever. Couldn’t find the room and it was up three flights of stairs with no lift (unfortunately harder for me at four months pregnant). The hotel smelt of curry (even from my cell on the top floor). Wouldn’t ever stay again.

Hygiene

Customer review rating 3.4/5

Anonymous Business - 05/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I'm a regular customer with this particular Ibis in Reading and always given the benefit of the doubt, however this time the hygiene standard was particularly bad in the bathroom. The toilet bowl looked like it hadn't been cleaned and the bath was not pleasant either. My room was a family room it was very cold I had to get a heater from reception to keep warm. The bed sheet's didn't even cover the double bed I had. I just feel the standard has gone down over the past year or so and I wasn't particularly keen on the Asian themes on the walls. I don't think I will be staying in this Ibis again for a while.

Located in the centre of Reading, close to shops, bars and restaurants. Rooms are basic but clean, with all the amenities that you need for a short stay. The staff member on reception was very pleasant and cheerful. Continental breakfast was really good, plenty to choose from. Limited car parking behind the hotel but there is parking available under contract close by.

Ibis Style - Reading (Curry House)

E B. Business - 04/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

This really is a dreadful place...the staff were very pleasant and efficient though. But the smells? The attached restaurant is an Indian and also serves as the Breakfast room, etc. Now I don’t mind an Indian meal, but I don’t want it in my bedroom or a reminder of it lingering in the morning...Room 1.09 was directly above the kitchen.

Anonymous Business - 03/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Basic hotel, not the cleanest, also my room had a sign in the window saying the management were aware it was broken, it was literally duct taped up, and looked like it had been like that for a while. I have photo evidence of this.

Nice hotel in the centre

Customer review rating 3.4/5

Anonymous Business - 30/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is in a good location, and is quirky in layout. It has a lovely Indian restaurant attached which doubles as the breakfast room in the morning. My room was quite noisy due to some kind of machinery. Probably the boiler but didn’t particularly affect my sleep.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Kind regards, Kristof
