Excellent location. Very friendly staff. Room to high standard. quiet considering location is next to train st. Only downside is you can’t add breakfast to only one of the days I was staying (to save money on paying at breakfast), as I had to leave 5am after second night. No fitness facilities. Oh and there are signs on the hot taps to warn you how hot the water gets - why not solve the problem and reduce the temp of how hot the water can get?

Check in took too long staff not that experienced with dealing with guests had to change room three times not good for a hotel like this its more like a 3 star rather than a 4 star! Shower was awful dcratched surfacing taps scaled and looked awful. I did complain but staff didn't seem to care or think it was a issue Reading itself is ok but wouldn't return. On my last room bed was soft one side hard the other so difficult to sleep Windows were filthy like vomit on curtains very bad stay 1/10

Great unique atmosphere. Rooms are very quiet despite the fact, that hotel is situated in the town center.

Great location and great room!

Pros: Great location / room
Cons: Cheaper rates???
Location: Great location opposite train station
Malmaison Reading is in a great location (opposite the train station and walking distance to some good restaurants and bars). The room wasn't ready when I arrived so I got a complimentary drink while I waited. The staff were great and the room was very comfortable. I'll stay again - depending on the price obviously!
