It's basic, but I know it, and Swinton has never let me down yet. Everything works.
The bathroom was tiny.
It was clean and safe but other than that a low end hotel. They let you change the room if you are not happy. My first room was in the basement, that smelled bad, had a large dent on the bed mattress, bathroom was the same as the shower, no slippers, very bad taste design and pealing wallpaper. A mess.
rooms in basement, pealing wallpaper, bad smell in the basement rooms, tiny rooms, tiny bathrooms that are showers at the same time. could be that for this price this is what you get in London but compared to hotels in other cities in Europe (Vienna, Berlin, Frankfurt, Prague, Bucharest, Thessaloniki, Barcelona) this hotel would be considered a dump in any of this places. I paid 536 pound for 4 nights. Based on this for around 108 pounds a night this is a complete ripoff.
The rooms werent nice, compared to the price we payed
Breakfast room too cramped Noisy Uncomfortable beds
The service was just amazing. We had an early check in and they booked us a taxi for Sunday morning. We also were able to enjoy a super early breakfast. The service was just perfect. Also the location. It's super close to the station and you are able to get everywhere in no-time.
Yes the breakfast could use an upgrade, and yes so could the rooms, but is that really important when you spend the entire day in London? Is that really important when the beds are comfy and the room is clean? Because honestly you are only in your room to sleep and get a shower and both those things were good enough. It's never gonna be like home, and for a hotel in London this was just what to expect. It was good enough!
With a stay at Swinton in London (London City Centre), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of British Library and Russell Square. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and a safe deposit box at the front desk.
