Stayed during the snowy weather in January. First off I have to say that the price of the room for central London was amazing.
Room was small, but not unexpectedly so, clean and the bed was comfy, so no complaints there.
The problem as other guests pointed out was the heating which didn't work - in fact the system seemed to be blowing cold air into the room.
I mentioned it at reception and the very nice person there said there was a problem and lent me a fan heater ( I think it was the one she was using to keep herself warm so that was kind of her).
If it was a one off problem fair enough but it doesn't sound as though it is and that would put me off staying in the future at this particular Easy Hotel. Having said that I've stayed in the Glasgow branch and would stay there again no problem.
Only other gripe is that I paid for a window - and it wasn't worth it, couldn't be opened and couldn't see out / let light in as it was covered with a film presumably to stop people looking in.
Al in all not bad if you are realistic about what you can expect for the price.
