Basically, I am a happy easyHotel customer. This was the second one I stayed in (the first one was the Edinburgh easHotel, the third one London Victoria). In every case I booked a small room without window - it's enough for me. Might be a problem if you travel with lots of luggage and intend to stay a long time, wasn't the case for me. If a good bed and a clean, very small bathroom are enough for you too and you can live out of your luggage for a few days, I recommend easyHotels. The small bathroom might be a problem for very large resp. overweight persons - there's really not a lot of manoeuvring space. - Well, but I have to say that of the three easyHotels I know, the room I stayed in at Old Street was a bit poorer than the others. The rooms in the other hotels were on one of the upper floors and made a thoroughly modern impression, like constructed in one pour. This one was on the ground floor and seemed a bit improvised for an easyHotel room. The bathroom was not the sleek plastic cabin I otherwise encountered - it was a bit larger, but also a bit shabbier (clean, but e.g. the flooring seemed to be somewhat loose). Also, the other easyHotels have television in the rooms, this one has not (it's okay, they state this fact on the web site). As I have seen connectors on the wall that looked like made for television, maybe they plan to introduce TV screens at some point in the future? - Friendly staff, good location. For easyHotels in general, I'd give four out of five points, for this one three. Not bad, but not quite as good as the others. You might still choose to stay there for the location, e.g. if you go to a concert in the Barbican. - For inexpensive English breakfast, I recommend The Masque Haunt, a nearby pub.
