Enquiry

I’ll admit it, I was a bit upset about having to fly out a day later than I planned.  But it turns out that everything is actually working out better than according to plan.  I sent in inquiry (or, rather, enquiry) to easyHotel asking about a ‘late’ check in–as in ‘almost 24 hours late’.  They clearly state in the terms and conditions portion of the website that ‘Your room will be held for your arrival untill 10.00am the morning following the first night of your reservation – after that time the booking will be deemed cancelled.’  That is copy/pasted, folks.  Yet, when I emailed them–via a very impersonal inquiry (enquiry) form on the site, they responded that checking in after 10am on the next day–whatever time that may be–would not be a problem.  So though we are traveling over night, and landing at 8 in the morning, we will immediately have somewhere to shower and abandon our bags.  Thank you easyHotel.  I only hope our stay is as pleasant as the booking process.

Easy Hotel

I found this hotel chain whilst googling ‘Budget London Lodging’, and my husband and I are seriously considering it–it is called Easy Hotel.  I discovered, after about one minute’s worth of research, that it is owned by the same company as Easy Jet (duh) and that it caters to people like us, who just want somewhere to sleep, pee, and shower–AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE.  They are impossibly small–around 30 square feet including the bathroom–and that’s for the larger rooms.  Some measure in at 18 square feet!  We originally thought that this would be fine; after all, we spent our honeymoon on a cruise ship.  How much smaller could it be, right?  The answer–most cruise ships standard non-balcony rooms are 210 square feet.  I cannot even imagine how small 30 must be!

But we are still considering it. Quite seriously.

But I have even more research to do.  For example, I would swear on many things dear to me that I researched fares from London to Paris on the Eurostar Chunnel, and it was a total of $112 per person round trip.  The Rick Steves London book that I just bought states that “a one-way full-fare ticket runs from $425-$300”.  Seriously?  Because that’s not ok.  For that price I’ll swim, thank you very much!
