Hotel Vicinity:Nearest: Railway Station: Luton 0.1 1 miles (0.2 km), Tube Station: Chesham 14.8 miles (23.8 km), Motorway: M1 Junction 10 1.9 miles (3.1 km). Located in the heart of Luton Town centre is the Easyhotel Luton, bringing some of the lowest rates you find for accommodation outside of hostel dormitories. Virtually on your doorstep is the large town centre which is dominated by the Mall Arndale Centre with its excellent range of shops the covered mall is open 7 days a week. Its just a short stroll to the Luton railway station which is linked almost to the hotel by a pedestrian bridge. However do not confuse this station with Luton Airport parkway which is the closest station to Luton airport. However its only 10 minutes from the hotel to the airport by local taxi which works out very reasonable if there are more than one of you sharing. The town is also linked to the airport by public bus routes. The airport is to the east while less than 2 miles to the west is the M1 motorway which leads down to north London (Brent Cross) as well as to Scotland if you head north and links with the M25 London orbital motorway. Half a mile north of nthe hotel is Bury Park which is a large commercial area specialising in fruit, vegetables and clothing. Heading south and less than a mile find Stockwood Country Park with formal gardens, golfing, a craft museum and the Mossman Carriage Collection.
