Hotel or Orange Cardboard Box?

First there was European no-frill discount airline easyJet. Now there’s easyHotel.

    In keeping with the “easy” philosophy, frills are again being ditched in favor of value for money. EasyHotel is charging $35 (£20) a night for double rooms at its first hotel in central London.

    Following in the footsteps of Japan’s capsule hotel concept, these rooms are being heralded as Europe’s smallest.

    Rooms come in three sizes — small, really small and tiny. At 80, 70 and 60 square feet (7.2, 6.3 or 5.4 square meters), there is little room to swing anything more than a carry-on bag.

Bathrooms are standard. Windows and a remote control for the TV are extra.
