On the whole, room is spacious, clean and comfortable. Downside is that ac/heating didnt seem to work. Never the less, the staff make up for any negatives as they are very friendly and helpful. Best part is breakfast where Ornella and her colleague blonde hair...More

About
Description
What makes us a cut above the rest is the way we do things. We have designed the pentahotel Reading to be simple and pentastylish, to provide excellent value for money, create a pentafun and relaxed space with More service that is welcoming and personal. All of this not only makes us the newest hotel in Reading, but also your neighbourhood lifestyle hotel. The perfect place to eat, drink and relax is the pentalounge, our „lifestyle lobby“ that multi-functions as a reception, bar, and cafe, perfect as a neighbourhood hub. And we have spacious air-conditioned rooms each feature a 38-inch flat-screen TV with Google Chromecast connection and free in-room movies. No matter what brings you to Reading, there is always time to have a look around. There are the medieval Abbey ruins, historic rivers and of course the majestic Thames Valley countryside to inspire you. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy you could also try out some of the local restaurants or pubs or the fabulous shopping malls. Less
