First phrase that comes to mind from staying here is value for money: a clean room, comfy bed, hot breakfast, and great location with a great price compared to other central London hotels. I stayed in one of the single rooms with shared bathroom: I never had to wait for the bathroom, and it was always perfectly clean. And I...

Such comfy beds, massive and modern family bathroom. Perfect bedroom for a family of 4. Room cleaned everyday to a really high standard. One morning they were short staffed and this meant breakfast was completely chaotic and I actually left without having any. Some reviews may reflect this experience but have the misfortune to not experience the 'usual' standard (due...

I've stayed at the Crescent probably eight times. I'll decide to try a new place but always end up back here. Quiet neighborhood and centrally located. This trip I ended up with a stomach bug and they took wonderful care of me. Bringing me 7up on the house and making sure I had everything I needed. Recommended.

Stayed here one night after a night out, for the price paid in the location it is, it's pretty good. The people are friendly and the place has a feel of a country b&b rather than a London hotel. Breakfast was particularly good and the bed was super comfortable with good quality sheets. I'll come back.

Had a single room with sink and shower in it, but toilet down the hall. For £75 pn in central London, and with breakfast included, it was good value. Everything was scrupulously clean and my window opened wide for fresh air. I'd stay again if on a budget and wanting to be close to Euston. Also, two minute walk from...

I returned for another stay at the Crescent on Thursday. Always good customer service and really friendly staff. I was staying on my own and as they had no single rooms available they upgraded me at no extra cost - shows they care about their customers. Hotel is centrally located a short walk from Euston. Rooms are clean and comfortable....

Rooms comfortable and self sufficient with breakfast provided. Close to Euston, Kings Cross and Russell Square tube stations, this provides good access to tube, overground, national and international rail services. Helpful and friendly staff.

Whilst I wouldn't necessarily rush back, as there are better hotels for similar prices, I was pleased that The Crescent was well located, handy for local bars, restaurants and shops and the room was neat & clean as was the en-suite.....didn't bother with breakfast so cant comment, however the staff I met were friendly enough

The Crescent Hotel is located about 2 blocks from the Russell Street tube station and so it was a straight shot from Heathrow. I got there early in the morning and the proprietors let me store my baggage so I could explore the city until check in at 2. The room was comfortable- no frills, but that's to be expected...

The first time I stayed at the Crescent Hotel was in 1971 and over all those years I’ve paid many visits to this place, the last time for a week two months ago. In my opinion it is the perfect little hotel in London. The location is very convenient. You will be 5 minutes from the Russell Square tube station...
