Having stayed in easyHotel in Paddington I felt I knew what I would be getting, basic, clean & small - not a problem for a budget traveller. However this 'hotel' was should be avoided. First I got into the lift and went to press the button for my floor, but all the button were missing! I had to count the number from ground and then put my finger into a hole that looked a bit like putting your finger into a cigarette lighter hole - I wasn't entirely sure if I was going to be electrocuted. When I got to my room I notices that the TV wall fixing was missing a TV so I went back to reception concerned that it might have been stolen and they explained, 'we don't do TVs'. So I adjusted my expectation to one of, ok this is literally a rent-a-bed. A little later I went to wash my hands to find that there was no soap! So I have to provide my own soap too! We left for the evening asap...
When we returned from out evening, looking forward to going to sleep, I got into bed to find that the sheet hadn't been properly and only covered a certain amount of the bed, so I then had to strip the bed and remake it at 2am after a few drinks, not something I enjoyed. Once I finally turned the lights out, a green permanently 'on' light was on the ceiling right over the bed, I turned to my partner who said, 'how are we going to go sleep' - a question I had already asked myself.
I will be requesting a refund as soon as possible.
