We needed a hotel to top-and-tail our Eurostar trip - so we stayed two nights separated by a few days. This hotel is a short walk from St. Pancras. The first night was truly terrible. Our room was on the ground floor, street-side, small and cramped but the linen was clean. Towels were a bit ragged. The door could not... More

Clean and comfortable Hotel. Perfect for a backpacker on a budget, if you just need a bed for a few nights while you visit London then the Swinton Hotrel will do. The bloke on reception was polite and very helpful. The hotel is also well located for all the amenities/Sites London has to offer, as is not too far from... More

I booked for a last minute business trip and the site came up with this hotel. The lighting was so poor I could not see to prepare for the next day, the room held a single bed only (no chair or desk or wardrobe), the bathroom door was like a wardrobe door with a large step up into it and... More

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
