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

Convinently located and polite staff, two positive points... however the single room I had was extremelly porly furbished, water damage on bathroom door and on the only item of furniture: a 2 draws cabinet with poles to hang clothes on. The other feature in the room was a tiny shelf. No chair to put your bag-clothes on or anything else.... More

We stayed there for one night and paid £99. The room was nice and quiet to the back yard. The TV didn't work (no antenna signal). The En-suit 'bathroom' is a toilet with a shower head. Once someone had a shower the whole 'room' is wet. Even the toilet paper gets wet if you don't put it outside first. The... More

“Basic but ok for an overnight stay” 3 of 5 stars Reviewed 28 March 2015 this review is the same as another,their words are the same as what i would have said. A warm welcome to the hotel. They let us store our luggage in the morning for that night's stay. The rooms are very small... And rather hot... But... More

Me and my friend came last night to find that our room was nothing like the photos what was on the website. Do not be fooled by the photos. The room was absolutely appalling. It was dirty.. The shower was full of mould, bits of poo was still in the toilet, the paint was coming off the walls, the TV... More

This is a low cost, low quality 'hotel'. The room had a dirty floor, dated furniture, a shelf holding a kettle on it that wouldn't have looked out of place in a garage for your paint tins and the shower room literally looked like it was inside a small cupboard. This reminds me more of a hostel than a hotel.... More

This place is just terrible. Receptionist in the nights couldn't speak English and just not presentable. Not helpful either. Staff in morning slightly better. Slanting floors, cold room, no bar in the cupboard to hang clothes, dirty, broken furniture, rusted kettle, the list goes on... It's just an old office building used as hotel without make over. I won't recommend... More

I stayed here with a friend for 3 nights in March. The staff was friendly and polite and the room was quite small but had everything you need (well expect a minibar). Breakfast was ok too. Absolutely the best thing was the location! 10 minutes by tube to basically anywhere from King's Cross. Lots of bars and restaurants are located... More
