How could I resist, a double bed instead of a couch?

How could I resist, being able to sleep a full 7 hours sleep?

How could I resist, somewhere clean that doesn't smell of three boys?

How could I resist the drama that happened over the weekend?

Last week when I saw the condition of my abode to be, I checked out what was on offer and EasyHotel, who also bring you Easyjet and previously EasyEverything (I am not kidding you) had a sale on their Barbican hotels, only 20 a night so I book myself 5 nights and what is the grand total cost of 5 nights to myself?  $152 I kid you not.. when you see the room you can understand but hey, I have slept at airports, in train stations, outside accommodation, in parks and building sites when I travel so a little metal room kind of like one of the Japanese capsule hotels but with my head room.. the bathrooms are the classic, just have a look at the photos.

Again I book a room without windows, the interesting  interior decorating technique of metal panel walls surely is errr interesting, guess at least any spills wipe off!!  Its 10-13 sqm in size.

It could do with a... err table somewhere, the only thing you have is a silver coat hanger attached to the wall.  As soon as I arrive I let loose with my luggage, it will be a grand re-packing exercise later in the week, until then, I let it sort itself out and I am sure, it has been secretely breeding since I last let it out, man I have a lot of stuff and I haven't used half of it!!

It's also in a good location easy to get to Secret Penny business and free wifi. Well if you are in reception, I manage to have Skype calls if I sit in the hallway next door under the fire extinguisher.
