I have stayed at The Crescent for two weeks each time for the past three years and am booked in again for 2015. It is perfect for me as it is near the British Library and the Wellcome Library on Euston Rd. The Russell Square underground is nearby so easy to get to other parts of London. I always stay... More

We had a family room in the basement, (1 Adult and 3 kids). Adequate space, newly refurbished room and bathroom. Good beds, and well cleaned. Friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast. Leaving luggage before check-in and after check-out was no problem. Good area, with a nice pub just around the corner. No noise during the night! We enjoyed our stay,... More

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.

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.
