No single or double rooms left so I booked the triple for £62pn The room is the size of a double with a double and single bed and a small pedal bin. No shelf, no bedside table, no tv, no kettle, no wardrobe. Basic minimum. Couldn't put my stuff anywhere or make a cup of tea. I would seriously consider... More

Really not my kind of place. I knew that it would be basic, but it really did feel like a prison cell. Paid extra for a window room which was about 2 meters away from the office block next door. This meant I had to keep the blinds shut the whole time! No vending machines for drinks or coffees. There... More

The hotel is simply basic.. no minibar, no kettle, nothing. But the location is perfect. You pay for what you get but in this case to stay in centre London. There are plenty of places to go to eat and drink just few steps away. I will be stay again for sure

I stayed here on Friday 23rd January. The booking in process glided smoothly and my key was quickly handed to me by a pleasant man at reception. As I have never stayed in an easy hotel before and only paid £40 I was apprehensive at what I would encounter. I was in my room within a minute of checking in.... More

Like many things in life you get what you pay for. The easyhotel on Old Street is example. Let no one have high expectations about this hotel. It is extremely basic. It has a bed, and a shower room which is a combined toilet and shower. There are two pillows and towels, toilet paper and a shower gel dispenser. That... More

Booked a twin room without window. The room was quite small and very basic. It had two beds and a shower, sink and toilet in a very narrow bath room. Thats it. Beds are OK, but the temperature in the room was near to 30°C all night without possibility to adjust it from the room, which ment really poor sleep... More

It was my partner's birthday, so we needed a cheap place to stay. We booked the Easyhotel Old Street/ Barbican for just the one night. When we arrived to drop off our bags, in the late evening before going out to eat. We immediately noticed that at 19:00pm there was at least 8 people sitting in the reception seating area,... More

Stayed in here for 3 nights due some business appointments.. Nothing special but nothing bad. The good thing is that they can give you advice where to go for lunch or dinner. Simply go right hand side to "John Doe Kitchen" the best place around

If all you want is a bed for the night in a central location then this hotel offers great value. The room I stayed in was on the 3rd floor. The room was clean, the bed was good, and there was a wet-room styled shower that worked and was clean. But there are no facilities and the room feels stark,... More

It is an acceptable accommodation for some days. Depending on the location of your room you will hear tje other guest or the staff walking around. You will probably hear your neighbour when flushing the bath. Quite warm in winter, nice and receptive staff.
