About our hotel
Just a few minutes walk from one of London’s best one-stop cultural destinations, the Barbican Centre, our east London property is a hop, skip and a jump from Old Street station and ideally sandwiched between Shoreditch and Farringdon - making it the perfect spot for budget business travellers and tourists alike. You’d be hard pushed to find a better located east London hotel for a more budget price - especially one just down the road from a major Northern line tube station with connections to the financial district and the rest of the city, making it a handy base for those on business. If it’s nightlife and a vibrant restaurant scene you’re after, then the trendy areas of Shoreditch and Dalston are a short walk away.
Where to eat
This area is known for its food, so finding a great snack or meal nearby couldn’t be simpler. Look Mum No Hands, a trendy bike coffee bar, is just across the street if it’s a quick breakfast you are after, or The William Blake Restaurant, five minutes away, is a good lunch or dinner venue. After something more buzzing? Try the Nomad bar or head towards Great Eastern Street where you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to tasty cocktails and craft beers.
What to see
As every Londoner/ London traveller will tell you, when it comes to getting to know the city: the tube is your best friend. easyHotel Old Street is a short walk from both Old Street and Barbican tube, giving you speedy, hassle-free access to the city. If you’re hoping to take in some of the classic London sights, the London Eye, Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace are all a short tube ride away, along with Hyde Park and Borough Market - great places for a stroll. Fancy getting into the British spirit and taking in a football match? Wembley Stadium is just a little way out by tube.
