This is the 4th time I have stayed at the Crescent Hotel. Each time it has been clean, breakfast has been good, and the staff is friendly. I find it to be a very convenient location. You can walk to Euston Station, Kings Cross/St Pancras, and Russell Square tube stations in about 5-10 min. It is easy to get to... More

I've stayed at this bed and breakfast over 40 times since the 1980's. It is family run, by the second generation of owners. My room is comfortable, with modern amenities (wi fi, phone, telly ...). The Crescent is reasonably priced, and includes an English breakfast where you can meet people from all over the world. The location is superb (near... More

My goal was to stay at a B&B-style hotel, and the Crescent Hotel worked out fine. I would definitely stay again. It's in a quite area. There are hospitals nearby, so you might hear ambulances. Our room was small, but we didn't ask for anything large. A room with two twin beds and en suite toilet, sink and shower was... More

As other reviews have stated, the location is perfect – near two stations and within walking distance of the British Museum. Our room, a triple with bathroom (shower only), was comfortable and quite large, but there seems to be a variety of room sizes. The hotel offers some sense of staying in a British home. The internet was down one... More

We booked the Crescent Hotel based on it's review in Frommers and because my Husband knew the area very well. I was disappointed from the moment we walked in the front door. First of all there was someone cleaning the windows above the front door. He didnt stop to let us in and I got drenched with water dragging my... More

This hotel is well located between three tube stations (King's Cross, Russel Sq and Euston Sq). The hotel is clean and adequately furnished. It's no luxury, but it is sufficient for a few days of London. The breakfast - freshly cooked to order - is one of its strong points, another being the friendly and helpful staff.

Cartwright Gardens has many hotels. This had to be the worst of the lot. First of all, the steps to get to my room on the 3rd level were very steep and I was always afraid of tumbling downwards. The room itself was tiny, with a sink and shower attached. I couldn't use the shower as the water was never... More

The Crescent Hotel is well located and perfectly fine for the money. Our room was big by London standards, clean and had a TV. The included breakfast ends too early - 9am - for people on vacation which was disappointing. We would probably stay there again.

We stayed in the Crescent Hotel for 2 weeks in Oct 2008. I was travelling with my 10 year old daughter. Overall, we found the hotel to be very good for our needs. I had originally planned to only stay for 9 days but then got some extra time off so we extended our stay. I booked the initial reservation... More

We are glad our guest enjoyed her stay and that she took pictures of her room. Just in case there is any doubt about the photo Beds RM 1, the beds are, of course, made every day and as soon as possible. These photos will have been taken prior to the morning' housekeeping. More
