Stayed here for 2 nights. By London standard, Crescent Hotel was a surprisingly good. I thought this hotel was one of the usual B&Bs with no characters but Crescent was in fact a small, friendly hotel with a full of characters. Located in Bloomsbury, many shops, cafes and restaurants were around. My room was small but functional. Breakfast was excellent,... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Crescent. Had a nice, if somewhat small, room, with a good bathroom. Quiet street, very pretty to look at, and could keep the windows open at night if we wanted. Great neighborhood, with lots of eating and drinking options, and nearly every tube line an easy walk away. Staff was pleasant, good breakfast, no... More

Wasn't sure what to expect from a single room in a London B&B - pleasantly surprised. Expected to walk up steep flights of stairs with a suitcase and that happened. However, the bed was comfortable, the room while small was exactly as described. Shared bathroom and toilet were not a problem. Everything was very clean. Breakfast was very good, and... More

I have stayed here several times for between 2 and 5 nights. The hotel is in fascinating Bloomsbury within easy walking distance of Kings Cross and St Pancras stations and is excellently placed for visiting all that London has to offer. It is subject to the usual London street noise but is otherwise quiet. Booking is efficient, staff are friendly... More

we booked for location and cost, both of which are good, however it is very dated, a tad grubby and staff were not over helpful. I felt like a back packer. a good location though and has many nice bars and restuarants nearby

Stayed overnight for a theatre visit. Requested 3 singles and thats what we got. Hotel is in a quiet area accessible to everything we needed- train stations, tube, restaurants and theatre. Rooms were very clean and beds comfy. Bathroom was a bit tired and shower a bit of a trickle. Breakfast was fine for the price of the room.

Stayed here one night with daughters. Location is good and conveniently near stations and theatre we were going to. Also lots of good places to eat nearby. Room and bedding clean. Bathroom clean but shower is rather snug. Breakfast disappointing. For what we paid it was good but would probably not stay there again

I stayed here for one night with my two daughters on a two day visit to London. This hotel is perfectly situated for Kings Cross station, and we were given a lovely welcome on our arrival. Our room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and quiet. We couldn't believe our luck! This is a lovely family-run hotel where we felt very much... More

I stayed two weeks in the Crescent Hotel while in London on a training course. The experience was very pleasant, staff were friendly and accommodating, breakfast was good and fast, rooms were kept tidy, and the location is very central. I would not hesitate to stay here again, or recommend it to others traveling through London, either long term or... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
