My cousin and I were attending an event in London on 16th May so we decided to have a two night "mini break". We booked this hotel as it is close to Kings Cross station and the tube and the price was right for the location. The cons: First impressions are that the hotel really does need a refurbishment but...

Swinton hotel is located at 10 minutes by walk from St Pancrass station. Compared to a lot of hotels in the surroundings, this one is of very good quality: not too small rooms, quite well-equipped, very clean. The breakfast buffet is small but of good quality. The price is really reasonable for London. The street is not calm. Maybe ask...

Not worth the price.Made me wonder what I paid for. Poor cleaning, no glass. oldy trash mold and bedsheets. Thick dust and dirt around the doors, frames. Dirty carpets,broken bedside tables.Everything sluggish but with refreshment and good cleaning staff,it would be topclass. Bathroom newly renovated but No glass. Shampoo and soap thrown behind the toilet. No hooks for the towels....

Perfect for a base for exploring London, a 10 minute walk from kings cross and st pancreas. Not a good choice if you want luxury but cheap and cheerful if your going to be out and about during your visit. Staff were very friendly upon arrival and we were able to choose which floor we wanted our room on. Will...

The location is great, but the road noise is constant all night long. The room is compact & clean and so was the bathroom, but there wasn't a hook in the bathroom to hold the towel. It includes breakfast, but only the toast is hot; everything else is cold cereal or ham.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a single room. The room was extremely small. Only a single bed, a small clothesrack, and a little christ of drawers, and the room was full. The bathroom was "all in one", no separate shower or shower curtain, so if you shower, the toilet and the sink were Soaking wet as well. The door...

One of the cheaper establishments in central London, however also one of the shabbiest. Positives included the speed of the Wifi, the efficiency at reception and the proximity to London Kings Cross railway station and underground. However, the decor is very dated, with evidence of pealing wall paper. The room was very small, with equally small beds. In the bathroom,...

Obviously this is a budget hotel so don't come expecting the ritz 😂 it's clean, practical and good if your exploring London and just need somewhere to shower and sleep! We had a double room and I have to say the bed was slightly small but it's not too bad. The staff were really helpful and did whatever we asked...

Not a great hotel. No matter how many bad reviews, I don't think this hotel is going to improve.. just over 200 for 2 nights, not worth the price. The walls and blinds were dirty, as was most things around the room and hotel. The bed was pretty stiff. Shower was cold the first night? Worked ok second night. The...
