Having never travelled on easyJet but having heard much of budget airlines, I was a little wary of booking into The Orange. On Earl's Court Road, London within minutes of the National Express coach stop. It surprises by being part of a converted Edwardian façade. However, there was a disabled lift at the bottom of the steps to the front door. There was a friendly reception and the twin bedded room on the fifth floor was clean, warm and quite suitable for a long weekend on the town. The interior décor lends much to the Easy Jet branding with lined cream walls with flashes of bright orange. The walls of the shower room are lined and integrated with the floor so it felt a little like an elaborate loo on an airplane. But everything worked a treat. There was only one removable fixture in the room – a portable fan heater/cooler. The beds were firm, with passable pillows and clean crisp bed linen and good towels. The downside is no restaurant only vending machines on the ground floor. The window in our room was sealed shut and it was a little noisy from the traffic although the hotel itself was very quite. You can hire a hairdryer and a card for the TV or purchase internet time on two computers at the entrance. Avoid booking the double bed rooms without windows we will return for our trip to Chelsea Flower Show in May.
