I stayed at the Swinton for 3nights and I appreciated the essenciality of the room, its cleanliness, the small garden and the perfect location. If you have heavy luggages is advisable to ask for a high floor as the rooms in the basement can be reached only by stairs.

Swinton Hotel, in comparison to other London hotels, is a bargain. The stock photos on the website are a bit deceiving, but lower your expectations and Swinton Hotel offers a decent place for a night's sleep (though not much else). Rooms are basic but clean and staff are helpful. I had a street-facing room and it was incredibly loud -... More

This shabby hotel has got a lot of room and they are small and noisy. The room are clean and clean towels are provided daily. The breakfast, which is included in the price, is hosted in a room too small to fit enough guests. Staff is not overly friendly. The wifi in all rooms is good. The hotel is a... More

No wonder you have to pay upfront, because one look at the room and you would find somewhere else. We had a room that bore no resemblance to the one that is on the website. The double bed was pushed against the filthy wall jambed against the foot so you had to climb over each other to get out. Not... More

For £100 for one night is a good price so close to the tube in kings cross. It was a bed for the night . It seemed clean enough apart from scuffed walls and marks on the walls, it just didn't seem maintained enough for me . It did seem very dated . The carpets were not very nice either,... More

Located 5 minute walk from St Pancras, the Swinton is a decent hotel for the price. Friendly staff, clean bedroom, free wifi. Nothing to write home about, though. A bit disappointed there was no English breakfast, which could be a nice add...

For my stay in London I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel which wasn't located somewhere in the suburbs of London. The Swinton Hotel was perfect in that sense, being relatively cheap and in walking distance to King's Cross Station. The hotel is simple, the rooms small, but clean. It probably could do with some renovations, but all in... More
