Easy Hotel, Victoria
Stelios of Easy Jet fame has been at it again, his empire has now expanded to include the Easy Hotel. A budget hotel aimed at those whose stay will involve little more than a quick kip before heading out to the streets. As a fly by hangover stop the Easy Hotel does a pretty good job. The rooms are purposefully tiny to save on space and I guess to fit more customers in. There is no storage other than two hooks on the wall, and luggage bigger than a medium sized suitcase is going to be a problem. Those hoping to spend, spend, spend will definitely have trouble, unless they don’t mind sleeping with their purchases! Few of the rooms have windows, and the bright orange walls makes cosmetics application tricky. Importantly it is clean, its Victoria location is convenient for city and tube and it is dirt cheap. Not to be recommended for those on a romantic weekend or those who prefer a little more luxury. Easy Hotel is an ok go for those whose hotel room exploits include a minimal level of activity, for example: snoring, showering and resting tired feet for a quick 10 mins before battering the pavement again. Top tip – take earplugs the air conditioning noisy as hell and the close proximity to neighbours means if you aren’t snoring it may be because they are!!
