“Central, clean and cheap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

I stayed at Easyhotel Old Street for 3 nights. It is a small room, it doesn't have breakfast and you only get housekleening if you ask for it (and pay).
Overall it is a very central, clean and cheap hotel. The service is friendly and the room is kind of cousy. For this price and with your own bathroom you only find it outside London.
I will definitly stay here on my next time in London.

Room Tip: You have 2 tipes of room. With window and without a window. I chose the one without window and it wa...

The rooms although small and somewhat claustrophobic do exactly what you need. A good clean bed and functional en-suite. Very poor mobile phone coverage from the rooms though. Good if you don't want to spend much time in the hotel & a good central location

Cheap, cheerful, comfortable beds, nice towels and a good shower, and most importantly, not too much orange. I can't see any reason why I wouldn't stay here again. There was ample space around the beds, separate lighting for over the beds and plug sockets in useful places. The reception staff were friendly, even when I rocked up at 00:20 to check in.

So we wasn't expecting much as it was the cheapest room available in London, I think, with the best location to centre. But what a strange little place, it is the worst room I have ever been in. Who designed these things it's like a pod, must of taken half an hour to build this room.
U dont want to spend much time in it. The smell and heating stories are true. Heating pointless doesn't work not even a heating system anywhere. Toilet flushes like an aeroplane one. The door even looks like its from the cockpit. Clean room and bed. Strange plug socket under the ceiling ?

I was looking for a cheap clean hotel to just stay the 1 night on a work get together that I could sleep in shower in morning then leave nothing fancy.

I was very happy as this room was exactly what is said on the tin, small but I did not need anything big, shower worked, beds were clean and room was tidy.

I would and will be using this again, nice work to the cleaners.

The Only reason this did not get an excellent was that the reception on arrival was a bit abrupt but everything else was perfect....

Room Tip: My Room was 1.16 check out is 10am, be aware or you will be charged for late check-out...

My husband and i are just overnighting in london for a conference.
The rooms are small but fine. Cleaning and bed comfort is fine. Surprised by big fluffy towels. The shower cubicle is just a pod in the corner of the room. Tiny but works fine. Nice hot shower.
Only comments would be
You have to squeeze around the bottom of the bed and the corner was sharp. I have a bruise and a scratch. This would be very easily fixed with a slightly rounded corner.
There is one hook for a towel and one hook for a coat. Just a couple more hooks would have been great. Plus a tiny bedside shelf for people like me with glasses. And charging a mobile phone. Those couple of things would make a massive difference.
Finally the staff are lovely. Before i stayed i stopped by to enquire on prices and they were so helpful.
Great staff can make a basic hotel sparkle.

Visited this hotel last week. The room is exactly what I expected, very small and compact but fine for the money we paid for it.
The room is only equipped with a bed, a mirror and a tiny bathroom/toilet but looks very clean and quite modern.
We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights and I would definitely go here again since the price is so low.
I personally think the hotel has everything you need for a city trip. The heating was working fine in our room really warm.
The area is great, it's only about 10 minutes to old street tube station.
I would recommend the hotel for people who are okay with a bit of less luxurious hotels and small spaces but only for a short stay..
