I booked a room with no windows and no cleaning service. The room was big (bigger than other Easy Hotels in London) and was en-suite (small but you don't really need any luxuries).
It was cheap enough and only 10 minutes by bus from Oxford St., so that was very convenient. I would not recommend the tube as it might take you longer with the different changes between stations.
There's only a small bin in the room, too small, so make sure to bring a plastic bag with you to put your rubbish.
There's free Wi-Fi in the reception area and my only complaint is that there was no mobile reception inside the room (I was expecting several texts/calls and only got them the next morning when it was already too late).
Also, there was an extremely loud woman in a room nearby and I don't think her sexual life is of any interests to the rest of the clients who are only trying to get a good night sleep.
To sum it up, it was exactly what I was looking for: cheap in 'central London', a place where you just go to shower and sleep. I might go there again, but might consider paying extra for a room with a window if that's the way to solve the mobile reception problem.
