Pros: Central location, good value
La Baguette is conveniently located downtown near the station. The rooms, tucked away above an inauspicious entryway, are petite but very clean, functional and comfortable and the breakfast in the neighboring cafe also met expectations. There was a bit of party noise from the back of a club that backs onto the same courtyard. Also, you will need to call ahead to instructions how to check in after 3 pm. Overall, I thought it was good value.

A satisfactory hotel

Posted Nov 10, 2014
Pros: The locations and the competitive prices.
Cons: Better communication/customer service by the owner. I had to correspond with him via SMS alot to get info that should have been easily provided.
Location: Reading Museum and Reading town centre.
I stayed at La Baguettes on two seperate occasions. La Baguette is a satisfactory hotel that is conveniently located in the center of Reading. The amenities are OK however the shower heads were quite rusted. Everything else was normal as per hotels in England. The rooms were warms and the beds were satisfactory. The WiFi was slow however usable. In short, the hotel is great if your looking for a stay in Reading, specifically as it is also quite affordable in comparison with some of the larger hotel chains. The breakfast offered was 'ok', fairly normal by English standards.

Ideally located hotel in the centre of Reading

Posted Aug 26, 2014
I booked this b&b for the Reading festival. It was conveniently located near to the train station. The room was clean and adequate for a single person. The bed was a little firm but satisfactory for one nights stay. Be aware they don't provide breakfast on Sundays. Also it was a shame some of the staff could not understand English and therefore help me with my query.

Budget place

The corridor smelt of enamel so not a great welcome, the room was ok but the shower was not clean. Ok for a one night stay.

Clean, convenient with comfortable bed

Posted Jul 12, 2014
Pros: Convenient to town
Cons: Would benefit from air con. There was no one on site and no information given when booked on how to access the room key
We had difficulty finding the place, as the sat nav kept sending us down bus only routes. Fortunately we had access to google maps. I had requested twin beds, but on arrival found a double bed. After contacting the owner, a single fold up bed was delivered quickly. There is no parking available close by, which was a disadvantage. Some information on where to park, when booking would be useful. The room was clean, nicely decorated and the bed comfortable, with a good shower. There was no air con, but a fan was provided. It was, however too noisy to leave on at night and the room was very hot. The breakfast was very good in the cafe below the building.

No clean towels. No room service for beds. When I complained the woman said I asked not to have clean linens. SHOULD NOT BE RECOMMENDED TO ANYONE

City-centre bolt-hole

Posted Jun 29, 2014
Location: 400m Reading mainline station & city centre
"Hotel" is a bit of a misnomer - there is no reception as such after 15:00, when the cafe downstairs closes. Instead, you'll be sent an e-mail giving you the code to access your room key from a box. The room was small, but clean and with all the facilities you want, and the two ladies in the cafe very professional in providing breakfast for those staying as well as those coming in just to buy sandwiches etc. for work. So cost-effective and quite acceptable for that "need to stay somewhere decent" trip.
