My room was small and basic, but that was exactly as advertised. What set the Swinton Hotel apart was the attention to detail - toiletries, tea, biscuits and a bottle of filtered water in the room every day, the provision of a folding table and chair, the included breakfast, the courtyard out the back... The list goes on. The location close to Kings Cross and St Pancras was very convenient, and the staff were absolutely fantastic, incredibly helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
Bringing you a chilled-out ambiance in the centre of London, The Swinton Hotel is a great place to stay whether you are …More
This hostel is in a brilliant location, approx 5 minutes walk from King's Cross Tube station. The facilities are very clean and modern, and excellent value for the price paid (prices start from as little as £13 per night). I stayed in the Bird's Nest room for women only, for only £16. Bed and room were very clean, and comfortable. Women's only shower room was spotless and modern, and toilets were clean and well stocked with loo roll (I've been to many hostel's that aren't!) Service was brilliant, from friendly, helpful staff who seem to show a genuine interest in you and your visit. They provide an all-you-can-eat and drink breakfast to fill you up before you go out exploring the city, with excellent communal areas and a basement bar and kitchen.
The hotel is close to kings cross station but is on a loud and busy street that has cars all day and night. The rooms are right near the street and the windows do not lock and you can hear the cars and traffic through them very loudly. Hard to sleep. Random construction also. Hotel staff is bizarre and not very helpful. Maids do a nice job of cleaning. Internet is poor. Overall too expensive for what you really get staying in this hotel.
This hostel was really nice and clean. It was surprisingly quiet at night and I loved that it had free breakfast. The location was great as it was within walking distance of the tube and had plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. I would definitely stay here again.
