Easy hotels

Has anyone had any experience with easy hotels. They are run by the same people as easy jet. I am looking to stay in London in mid October and they range between £35 and £45 a night. I have read they are simple but that does not bother me. I will be finishing almost six weeks in the Middle East on different tours so just looking for somewhere to base myself out off. As well they have locations in
Earls court, south kengiston and Paddington is one area better than the other to stay in. As an alternative any suggestion for a hotel less than £70 a night (I know not a lot for London )

Thanks in advance

easyHotels were established by the man who started the airline, who clearly loves the colour orange, but are a separate operation. The hotel website is clear: If it says no window, there is no window. And no control for the TV except for an added fee. Small means closet-sized (I had to put my suitcase under the single bed in order to turn around.) But at least the toilet/shower is private, if tiny. You get what you pay for, which, when I stayed at the Paddington location, meant fairly noisy hallways and a friendly greeting at reception. The surrounding neighbourhood is conveniently close to train/tube stations but not a prime location for tourists.

How small is a closet-size "room"?

I stayed at the EasyHotel in Budapest. As long as you understand what you're getting, they can work well. As said above, the room is small and the bathroom is like on a submarine. My room had no closet - just a few hangars and a few wall hooks. They indeed charge extra for everything (including leaving luggage before check-in or after checkout). For two days, it was fine; for longer, it would have started to feel claustrophobic (and I'm used to small European singles).

We stayed in one in Zurich - for just one night, as I recall - and it was fine. Small room, but very clean.
