This Malaysian import provides everything you need in a modern crash pad but nothing else: en-suite power shower, round-the-clock reception, air conditioning, but not even a closet—you get hangers. If you want more, you pay a few pounds more at a time: towel rental, TV, Wi-Fi, safe, hair dryer, and even windows come at a price. The a la carte model keeps costs down but isn’t a path to luxury, yet the facilities are clean and designed with minimalist zip. Don’t write off a windowless room’s power to mediate jet lag. Prices are as low as £35 months in advance and go to £125 or so last-minute.
