EASYHOTEL is going to start offering bizarre lullaby playlists to guests with unconventional soothing sounds like hoovering and gurgling radiator pipes.
The budget hotel chain’s aim is to replicate the sounds of home and help guests fall sleep.
easyhotel Guests staying at the no-frills hotel in Croydon can pay from £19.99 for a basic room – and get a lullaby playlist featuring sounds like hoovering and gurgling radiator pipes
The playlists, based on a poll to gauge guests’ individual preferences, will be available on Spotify.
Other sounds include free-moving traffic, a dishwasher, distant calm conversation and the sound of a shower.
The service will be trialled at easyHotel’s locations in Glasgow, Newcastle and Croydon first, because the hotel says that guests in these hotels tend to checkout the latest, suggesting that they need the most sleep.
Links to the playlists, accessible via any smartphone, will be provided at check-in in those locations, before being rolled out across the easyHotel network.
easyhotel This isn’t the first time that easyHotel have launched quirky offerings to their guests, in May last year they started offering tourists a ‘fake view’ of London’s landmarks for £1 a night at the Old St hotel
Laurie Walters, Chief Sheep Counter at easyHotel, said: “Our business is comfortable, affordable sleep for as little as the cost of a prog rock double album (£19.99).
“What listening to a washing machine or hoovering might lack in glamour, it gains in a quick drift off to comfortable night’s sleep.”
This isn’t the first time that easyHotel have launched quirky offerings to their guests.
The hotel chain also hit the headlines last May for selling tourists a fake window view of London’s landmarks for £1 a night at its Old Street hotel.
