4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel was well priced, clean, modern and safe to stay in. I would recommend booking a triple room as I did for comfort and space, even as an individual traveller. The price was reasonable compared to paying just £20 more than when I stayed in a grotty hotel in Victoria last month. Only negative was the green light that... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night, it is located near to the company I work for and was very well priced. I had a room with a window, but only nor blind. That did not matter as I arrived at 10.00pm and left the next morning at 7.45am. The bed was comfortable and I slept well. The shower... More

With hotels in London being so expensive, I decided to give this place a try. Glad it was only 2 nights. I only managed to get a room with no window so that was the first downside. Room was not ready upon my arrival at 3pm, so I had to deposit my luggage in an unmade room and had no... More

Easyhotel St Barbican for us really was excellent value. For a couple it was cheaper than any hostel or hotel and was very easy access for the train station and the O2 Arena, which is why we were in London. We only stayed one night, and I probably wouldn't want to stay here too many nights. +'s Exceptionally cheap. Our... More

We booked this hotel for 2 nights from 7th July. We were slightly worried about the hotel given previous reviews of this and other easyhotels but we have to say they couldn't be more wrong. When we got there we were greeted at reception. Granted he seemed a little bored but we soon forgot about that. The room: We booked... More

It is the most simple hotel I've ever seen. It even don't have a table to put my phone on! It's not very important for me anyways but the price was not very competitive, the premier inn was even cheaper than easyHotel! It was the first time I stay at easyhotel and I promise, I will never stay there!

I have been to other Easyhotels, and this is by far the worst I have stayed at. I booked in for a few nights at this hotel. Although I slept ok (mainly because I was very tired), this hotel provides sleep in squalid conditions. The Easyhotel Old Street / Barbican is in a poor state of repair, run by staff... More

It is a shame that I have had to rate this hotel one star, but it is not without good reason. I stayed mid-week, sole traveller. There was a very bad issue with noise - due to doors that bang when they are opened/closed.(there was one strange chap who kept going in and out of his room) It is a... More

Needing a hotel room near the City at short notice during a week with several events on is never easy in London... But the price wasn't very reasonable at £70 for an window room - the next closest was an Ibis at £170). The building is slightly odd, being shared between short-term office space and a hotel. However, check-in was... More

I would encourage anyone on a tight budget who wants to stay in a central location in London to consider this hotel. It's not pretty. There are no frills. The toilet is very small and every morning offered the option of fighting with the shower curtain of wearing it! Having said all of that, the bed was comfortable and the... More
