I wouldn't say this was a POSH hotel. Or swank. But it served us very well for our three days in London. It was close to so many things. The beds were comfortable, the sheets and towels were clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The bathrooms seemed recently remodeled and were mostly clean (the doorjams and corners could...

Stayed here for a night on a friends stag weekend. Came down early in the day to get changed etc. Room was ready at 1230 which was why I picked this hotel as many others don't let you check in until 2 or 3pm. Short walk to Kings Cross tube means you can get around easily but the hotel isn't... More

We stayed for one night midweek and first impressions were I have to say something akin to what The Hotel Inspector feels on a bad day, the halls are narrow and if you are claustrophobic this is definitely NOT the hotel for you BUT if you are looking for a clean bed to lay your head thats excellent value for...

I did not look at reviews. I want to encourage you to check the pictures. Location was awesome being so close to kings cross. Pretty easy to get anywhere. It is very dated. The stairs and hallways very narrow. The room was small which was expected, beds appeared clean, room smelled fresh. But rooms are also dated. They don't give... More

69 for a b&b is certainly a bargain. Room was very small but sheets and towels were clean as was bathroom. No wardrobe, but similar rail to holiday inn express or ibis so can't complain. Furnishings, carpets and facilities very old and tatty but stayed in worse places for more money so again, can't complain. Staff helpful- pointed me to... More

£149 for a family room sounds like a bargain right? Wrong! The 3 single beds looked clean enough but I'll be honest, looking at the state of the rest of the room and 'hotel' I didn't want to take the chance and slept on top of the covers. A bonus really as the room was down the steepest stairs and... More

Just bad. Cleanliness inconsistent, furniture old and shabby, blinds broken and let in light, the window wouldn't close so traffic sounds disturbed me all night. I went to hang up my jacket and the hook fell off the door with a clatter, bathroom is barely a metre wide and clearly used to be a cupboard. Shower had been fixed in... More

About a 5 minute walk from the station. I had a single room, the sheets were clean. En suite was clean, think it was previously an airing cupboard. Bathroom door does not close. The noise from the street was all night and the Windows do not keep the noise out.

After much research and discovering the scary price of most hotel rooms in London, my stay at the Swinton far exceeded my expectations. Excellent location, around 6 mins walk from Kings Cross/St. Pancras with access to anywhere in the whole country. Keys had to be left when you go out but reception was manned 24x7. Area a little shabby but... More

Don't bother, rooms are too small for anything. No room for even a chair. Hallways so narrow two people can't pass. Travelodge just down the street for almost the same price and that's where we went after one night at this dive. In the shower there is nowhere to put your soap or shampoo or any shelf to put your...
