The trial promotion, created with Houston PR, allows guests to "experience the majesty of some of the city's finest landmarks without having to pay (as much as £10,000) for a fancy view", a statement from the agency said.

Jorge Rodriguez, easyHotel's marketing and e-commerce manager, added that the real experience of the capital is "the experience on the streets, in the museums, and shops - not staring out of a window".

He said: "Guests might as well spend a fraction of that £10,000 on a TV and experience the view at home instead. If you really want a view, just spend an extra quid with us."

The views - which include Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace - can be purchased on arrival at the Old Street hotel. 

easyHotel, which is part of the easyJet group of brands, operates five hotels in the UK, and has a further 20 franchises throughout Europe.
