How Important is Location When Choosing a Hotel?

When you’re searching for a hotel to stay in, there are several things you need to consider in order to make the best choice. One of your priorities might be price, for example, so you might want to choose an affordable hotel, but equally important is the location of said hotel. This is because location is the whole reason you’re travelling in the first place.

If it’s for business, for example, chances are you need a hotel in a convenient area. You want to be able to attend meetings or give presentations without worrying about getting lost in a place you don’t know and might not have been to before. Even if you’re on vacation, you probably don’t want to lose time on long commutes. Strategic location is, therefore, vital to choose the best hotel for your trip:



Whether you’re on a business trip or on a holiday where your main goal is to sightsee, you’ll want to stay in a hotel with plenty of transportation available. After all, both popular sightseeing destinations and businesses tend to be accessible by public transportation, so it helps to be near a busy hub that easily lets you hop on a bus or train. For example, Swinton hotel is close to King’s Cross station, and from there you can take the train everywhere, and access a lot of different areas of London.


In most cities, the best shopping is located in the centre, so if this is what you intend for your trip, you might want to stay in a hotel with easy access to those amenities. If not within walking distance, at least close to public transportation.

Since we’re close to King’s Cross, by staying in Swinton hotel you can hop on the train at any hour, any time, and after only a few stops on the Victoria Line you get to Oxford Circus, where a large variety of shops are.


If you want to sightsee and your hotel is close to the main tourist attractions, you get easy access to all of them without having to spend a lot of time on public transportation – or having to rent a car to get around. Therefore, by staying in a central area you get easy access to everything you want to visit.

The location of your hotel, then, is extremely important and should be taken into consideration when you’re choosing a place to stay, since it will determine how easily you can access tourist attractions or places of business.
