But guests taking up the 'no-frills deal' will pay extra if they want to sit in their room and watch television or use the hotel's WiFi - and even having a room cleaned will come at a price.

The easyHotel Glasgow City is a "no-frills super budget" stopover for tourists and business people and is owned by easyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou.

He has turned a 1960s office block into a 125- bedroom hotel.

It cost £6million to convert Drummond House, in Cambridge Street, above Italian eaterie Fazzi's, into one of Glasgow's cheapest sleepovers.

The four-storey building has 86 double bedrooms, 32 twins and seven adapted for guests with special needs.

Each room features the distinctive orange colour associated with easyGroup's brands, which include easyGym and easyCar.

Rooms cost from £25 a night, but guests will have to pay extra for additional services, such as £5 a day to watch television or £10 to have a maid clean the room.

And any guest who wants access to a room from noon on the day of arrival will have to pay an extra tenner.

And it will cost them another £10 if they don't want to vacate the room before 1pm on the day of departure. There's also a daily £5 storage charge for baggage.

Other charges include £1 for every extra towel ordered, £5 each to hire a hairdryer, straighteners, an iron or an ironing board and another £5 to use WiFi.

The hotel won't even offer hot food or drinks. Instead guests will have to eat out.

Sir Stelios said: "I'm delighted to bring our second Scottish hotel to Glasgow.

"This new easyHotel will allow visitors to enjoy the best of what the city has to offer – without the expense."
