We spy a splendid twist for our travel section this week. Budget travellers' best friend, easyHotel, is trialling a millennial innovation that gives guests a room with a view for next to nothing at it's Old Street Hotel. The all singing, all dancing new rooms centre around a picture window which offers up London’ most iconic landmarks at the flick of a switch. The views enable guests to experience the majesty of some of the city’s finest landmarks without having to pay a premium for a fancy view.

Ok, so, you might well (as do I) believe that nothing is as extraordinary as walking through London town and finding your own groove, but, if you want all the bang for your budget travel buck, you have to go digital. The new generation of travellers are exceptionally savvy, they shop around and evolve, searching for the hottest new thing to take their travels to a whole other level. The digital revolution, however you embrace it, needn't cost an arm and a leg, for the urbanites and cultural voyeurs it can cost you a mere pound to upgrade your vista to a spectacular and iconic London institution including Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace. Simply request one on arrival at reception and easyHotel will take care of the rest.

Jorge Rodriguez, Night Night Manager of easyHotel, said; “Many London hotels charge rates as high as £10,000 for a premium view from a room. Why shell out a fortune when you could be spending your hard-earned cash on the experience of the city itself? Our customers’ cash stays in their wallets for an enjoyable visit rather than being literally thrown out the window. The real experience of the capital is the experience on the streets, in the museums, restaurants and shops – not staring out of window. If you really want a view, just spend an extra quid with us.”

easyHotel is rapidly expanding in the UK and internationally, offering guests the opportunity to stay a night on some of the world’s greatest cities for about the price of a decent pillow with rooms from as little as £19.99. Manchester is the Group’s latest ‘new look’ hotel and follows recent openings in Brussels, Amsterdam Arena, Zaandam and Birmingham, which opened earlier this year. The next phase of confirmed openings include Liverpool, Lisbon, Belfast and Barcelona, in the coming months.
