easyHotel plc is pleased to announce that bookings are now open for the easyHotel in Croydon, the Group’s 21st hotel worldwide. Customers are able to book the hotel from today ahead of the hotel’s opening on 17th November 2014. Bookings are now open at www.easyhotel.com.
easyHotel Croydon is a 103-bedroom owned hotel, which is just two minutes walk from East Croydon train station, the third busiest station in London outside of Travel Zone 1. With substantial inward investment into Croydon, including major redevelopments in the towncentre, easyHotel expects significant demand for its value based proposition.
Room rates start from an attractive £19 per room per night, with all rooms offering air-conditioning and an ensuite shower bathroom.
East Croydon is less than 20 minutes by train into London Bridge and Victoria and only 15 minutes by train to Gatwick airport. The tram service connects Croydon to Wimbledon. Good transport links are crucial to easyHotel’s overseas customers.
easyHotel’s London hotels attracted more than 60% of their hotel demand last year from overseas customers, and given the excellent transport links, management believes that the Croydon hotel will be attractive to the significant number of international visitors coming into the London area looking for a cheaper alternative than a central London location.
Simon Champion, CEO of easyHotel plc, said “We are grateful to Croydon Council for their positive attitude towards our investment in Croydon. In turn we believe that easyHotel will significantly benefit local food and retail outlets, increase employment and attract more international visitors to Croydon. We believe that the outlook for the area over the next few years is very positive and we look forward to the success of easyHotel Croydon”.
