Stayed here for a coup of nights and found the location of the hotel great, lots of bars, restaurants all in easy walking distance. The rooms were quite basic but the hotel was nice. We got this stay at a very good price and was definitely worth the money.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 February 2017 via mobile

Off the train 2 min walk to hotel in a central location. Room was good, clean, comfortable and I loved the powercube in the room where you can plug USBs directly Into so much that I purchased one myself when I got home! Lovely branded 'bubbles' to use in the bath room and felt very safe haven after a hard...

I had a newly restyled room which proved very comfortable with good HD TV, nice shower unit, and high floor affording city views. The stand out were the staff. Most were young, at least way younger than I, and hailing from the continent. They were smart, professional and friendly to the extent that it makes me lament Brexit even more!...

I stayed for 2 weeks. The hotel room was nice and clean. The design was really well thought, such as the bathroom had a circular shape to gain more space in the room. It was 5min walk away from the city centre and from the train station. The staff was friendly and helpful when I told them I had ordered...

Great hotel, good room, and having good food just outside was brilliant, the only problem me and my girlfriend had was that the room got hot, which impacted our sleep. On a whole though the room was good and we enjoyed our stay.

I had high hopes having had an enjoyable stay at Ibis in central Liverpool, but although the staff and breakfast at Reading Central were fine, my room left a lot to be desired: twin beds fastened together as a double meant there was an uncomfortable seam and a droop in the middle; the "on" switch on the kettle was broken...
