Service at the front desk was very good, but otherwise the whole easyHotel "experience" leaves much to bargain for. The price is very high to have dirty room floors, malfunctioning toilet flush, badly designed toilet/shower and only one peg on the wall to stunt for clothes rack. On top that very noisy neighbors talking spanish loudly in the corridor. And... More

Very small room only just bigger than the bed but also a Shabby room, paid for window but the blinds wouldn't lift so couldn't see out anyway! Coat hanger hanging off wall, bin broken, no plug on sink, only 1 towel for two people, cold water on arrival. Concept may work if everything worked as it should but as it... More

Very pleasant staff on arrival and I was presented with a complimentary breakfast box as it was my first stay. I expected basic for £75 in London and am used to using budget hotels. However, their was an overwhelming smell of bleach in the room on arrival - assuring me of its cleanliness, but quite overpowering. Two coat hooks to... More

Very cheap hotel with nothing extra. Bed in the room. No chairs no table no where to store your clothes beside in your travelbag on the floor. The room had two very large windows and I got torticollis of draw from the windows. But it was cheap and the underground station was quite close. On the way to the underground... More

It's what you pay for, nothing more and nothing less, it's a basic hotel, just for sleep and shower, you cannot expect amazing conditions for this price in the middle of London, the receptionists are very friendly, if i return to London i will consider this hotel one more time.

This is a room for the night, nothing more nothing less. Had everything you needed for a sleep, a wash and somewhere to store my stuff while out in London. Couldn't beat the value £50 compared to travel lodge £140 midweek quote. Basic but functional

I know you don't get much for £85 a night in London. But this place takes the pi55 altogether. Literally a bed in a room. Not even a shelf to put your phone on, or a bedside cabinet, nothing. No TV (not a big loss admittedly), one hanger for your coat. And that's your room. The bathroom was small, and... More
