Just 40 miles west of London, Reading is primarily known as a commercial centre and university town. Although the place is not famous as a tourist hot-spot, people visiting London and having interest in the historical past of the country often stray to Reading to explore the medieval legacy of the place. Situated at the confluence of two rivers- River Thames and River Kennet, Reading’s scenic beauty is a thing of attraction, too. So for all these visitors- whether tourists, students or businessmen- Reading has a number of good hotels. Here are the two most popular of them-
Pentahotel Reading Centre:
This 4-star hotel at the heart of the town comes with all the provisions for luxury living and is committed to make your Reading stay a pleasant one.

Ones who coming for business purposes will be happy to know that the hotel has a banqueting centre and several large conference rooms for meetings and parties.
The name of the onsite restaurant is Pentalounge and you can find a large array of continental dishes here. And if you are tired of your business meetings or your day tours, a nice way to refresh yourself is to head for the hotel’s integrated games room. There will be American pool tables, table tennis and other games, along with many video games like Nintendo Wii and others.
