Clean, basic hotel if you need to stay overnight near Euston / Kings X / St Pancras stations. Luggage-luggable distance from the last 2, which are on the direct tube line (Piccadilly) from Heathrow. Good stopover hotel, somewhat grungy surroundings, fulfills a need for a brief necessary stay. A bit like a rabbit-warren inside, no lift, no phone or clock in room.Pleasant staff.I would stay here again, under the same circumstances, but not for more than a day or 2.

Convenient for St Pancras I found the hotel perfectly adequate and the staff very friendly and helpful.
My room was in an annexe accross the courtyard and was somewhat in need of some TLC, especially the shower and seperate WC.
The breakfast was very basic but was perfectly OK and for and all inclusive price of £65 for central London was reasonable.

My main reason for choosing Crestfield was for its location and value (after comparing several other hotels in London). I arrived into Kings Cross station in the evening, so checking into Crestfield is only less than 5 minutes walk from the station. Subsequent travelling from Kings Cross to other parts of London was also not a problem.
Pros - Convenient location, Hotel provides left luggage and can arrange for taxi to Heathrow airport
Cons - no lifts, narrow staircase (had to lug luggage up to 2nd floor); floor board in room and room above creaks

The best was the treatment of people and the near situation of St Pancras Station.
The breakfast was good
Rooms are little and we must use stairs. There is not a telephone in the rooms and people can´t comunicate
Rooms were very clean

The only place to sit is out of doors and there is not a lobby

Very handy for Kings X / St Pancras. The entire staff were all really friendly and welcoming. It was excellent value for the price. My single room was up in the attic, small but spotlessly clean (and quiet!). I was told it had just been refurbished. The bed was really comfortable. Breakfast is continental, but plenty of choice. I've stayed in a lot of hotels of this price bracket in this area and will definitely use this one again. If time, try to take a walk along the nearby Regents canal and if looking for a non chain place to eat, I recommend the reasonable Le Bistro de la Gare..reviewed on trip advisor - it's about a 10 minute walk.

Warm welcome, although the hotel is under going renovation, obviously still business as usual, although slightly small rooms, clean and tidy, very comfy beds, that's all you need the room for really init, oh and the coffee n tea for the next morning, a definate if I'm in London , close to kings cross station , and loads of cafes

Last time we stayed at the Crestfield, we asked for a quad room and was very happy with what I thought was a pretty spacious room by European standards. And with 2 11 year olds, it was very nice. So, when we returned to England we decided to come back and give the Crestfield another go. This time, with 2 14 year olds, we were put in what was originally a triple (you can tell that by the headboards attached to the walls). To say we were cramped is an understatement. The bathroom is very small, only one towel per bed is in the room and no washcloths or hand towels. While the place is nice, clean and the breakfast has been upgraded, I feel like we were a little taken advantage of on the price. As a triple room with another bed jammed in here to make it a quad, it doesn't work.

Room Tip: If you have a quad request, avoid rm 13. This is the triple with an extra bed.
