I was travelling on my own for business, not for pleasure. The hotel had everything I needed given the situation. I felt very comfortable and the staff we extremely polite and friendly. Room was quiet and clean.



Overall the service was excellent. Reception was more than happy to help us keep our luggage both when checking in and checking out. The rooms were cleaned daily, although I did find an odd stain on my bedsheet once but it was no big deal for me. Breakfast was included which was a plus thought it could do with maybe 1 or 2 hot dishes. The only complaint I have is the heat rack in the bathroom did not seem to work, maybe I didn't know how to turn it on. But the towels were replaced daily so its not a big issue.



ibis Styles Reading provide a friendly service at a good rate for short stay for business in Reading Centre. I recommend the Vietnamese restaurant Pho nearby. The rooms were clean, if not a little small, but the location is excellent



Ibis Styles Reading Centre was one of our oddest and coldest Ibis experiences lately. Hearty welcome upon arrival. We were upgraded into a family room, which turned up to be the remotest room in the hotel, on the third floor without lifts, which meant we had to climb at least 55 steps to get into room in case we took the right turns in the labyrinth of corridors. If we went the wrong way it could be 70 steps. Upgrading turned into downgrading. Reception should have asked if we wanted to do this exercise several times a day. Luckily we had small bags otherwise it would not have been possible to take them up in the steep and winding staircase. The hotel is not recommended to elderly people like us. The downgrading was doubled when we found there was no heating in the room and it was about 4 degrees outdoors. When we mentioned this to the reception (going down and climbing up of course) they promised to take care of the problem but an hour later when nothing happened we asked for another room with heating. The receptionist called the manager instead. The manager came and did not seem to be happy about our complaint. When we insisted he decided to call somebody who finally fixed the heating (3 hours after our arrival). A very nice guy, who tried to explain to us what the problem with the boiler was – unfortunately we had to hurry somewhere and could not fully enjoy the story. Later the room was pleasant and warm though the heating was turned off in the middle of the night and turned on again a few hours later – we were happy to have it like that. Breakfast is ok, not too many choices, some of the food ran short but w did not really mind. The hotel is centrally located, very close to the shopping street and to the riverside that is packed with excellent restaurants and not too far from the station either.



Great hotel. Stayed one night. Only downside is a very small car park, was lucky to get a space. Bed was a bit hard. Decor was very stylish. Would stay again. Very close to al the shops, clubs, restaurants, bars.


Hotel design


There's a warming vibe to this hotel thanks to the colour palette. It's one that wouldn't look out of place in a spice market, with plum, turmeric, paprika and cinnamon set against calming creams and greys. Glimpses of gold are seen in places too - just like in a grand Indian wedding. Photography taken from travels around India is displayed across the walls of the bedrooms and corridors so that the place feels like a guidebook of another land. There are henna decorated hands uniting together around a bowl of exotic flowers; rugged muslin bags of multi-coloured spices, and artwork that whisks you away to Agra and the famous The Taj Mahal at sunrise.

India is like a continent of vivid, vibrant, and diverse countries bound together, and it never ceases to surprise and delight. With such a broad array of cuisines, customs and cultures to be found, it's no surprise. Delhi or Mumbai offer relentless metropolitan hustle and bustle, while serenity can be sought gently cruising backwaters of Kerala. The country moves to its own beat, and you can feel like you're in the centre of it all here at the ibis Styles Reading Centre hotel.

Start the day as if you were in a Bombay café with a cup of hot chai or Darjeeling. Downstairs, there's an area for children to take a perch, practice some mediation (if only!), or read one of the books there. We highly recommend The Jungle book, and not just because of its setting. The backdrop to our kids corner is filled with friendly animals, including a pair of friendly Indian tigers. In the evening, relax with a crisp drink of Cobra beer, and think about which curry takes your fancy. With us, you can enjoy being in the heart of Reading, but we also hope you'll leave with a little of India in your heart.
