As a family of 4 we were looking for an economic hotel. Friends had heard of the Crescent and passed on the information as an affordable hotel. We were to stay there for 3 nights but after the first night we checked out and went to the Hilton. The room was on the second floor and required we carry our... More

If you are visiting London and want to avoid the bland commercial hotels then this is the one for you. The hotel is situated in a Georgian style crescent and offers a stay that is quintessentially English. The setting is traditional and rooms clean and comfortable. A good communal room to meet other guests or relax. Plus of course full... More

The Crescent Hotel is a lovely Georgian era building nestled into a row of several similar hotels in a mostly residential neighborhood near King's Cross/St. Pancras, UCL, The British Museum, and Russel Square. There is a fairly lively commercial area just one block away with plenty of mid-range restaurants, a few pubs, and general sense of youth and activity. The... More

After searching for so long for a decent, budget hotel in London, I finally booked at the Crescent hotel. I was kinda surprised when I got there with the good quality of the hotel. The room was really small and the stairs to get there tiny. The room itself though was comfortable, clean with a shower and sink was shich... More

Small Hotel that punches above its weight. Located in a leafy crescent, beside a small park in Bloomsbury and only minutes away, on foot, from St Pancras International, Kings Cross and Euston stations. Surrounded by good pubs & eateries. Clean and well run, this privately owned hotel offers comfortable, affordable and clean. A good breakfast in a pleasant breakfast room... More

Much better than nearby hotels in the same class. Breakfast and breakfast staff were very good. Rooms are not most up to date but well looked after, clean and tidy. Shared bathrooms were tidy clean and plenty of space. Reception staff were very gruff for no reason. Would stay again.

Very central location, nice neighbourhood that felt safe, also at night Moderately clean: towels, pillows and teacups in my room were stained, but were promptly replaced. Shared bathrooms were clean. All single rooms are facing the street and located at the top floor of the building. It's good to know when booking that the building's isolation against heat and noise... More

This was a great base for us as we were visiting different areas of London and not too far away from anywhere. Convenient for Euston. Quiet area. Clean hotel, friendly staff who were very helpful. Breakfast was lovely, especially the poached eggs. Will stay here again. Extremely comfortable bed.
