easyHotel South Kensington

14 Lexham Gardens, London, W8 5JE, England

London's original "pod hotel" has tiny rooms with a double bed, private shower room, and little else–-each brightly decorated in the easyGroup's trademark orange and white (to match their budget airline easyJet). The reception desk can't offer much in terms of service, and everything costs extra: £10 per day for room cleaning during your stay; £5 per 24 hours for a TV; £1 each for fresh towels. Wi-Fi ranges from £1 for 15 minutes to £15 for a week. The concept is undeniably a hit—it's fully booked months in advance and several branches have opened (the website details locations)—just don't expect any frills. Like, none. At all.

  • amazing rates
  • safe and decent enough space
  • good location

CONS

  • not for the claustrophobic—rooms are truly tiny and most have no windows
