Stayed there with my family in a family room. The service was very good and value is ok but rooms are very small. I have also seen cleaner hotels. Breakfast was fine but the coffee was terrible (as expected). The neighborhood is nice and quiet. It takes few minutes to walk to the nearby Russel square station, almost too far...

This hotel is one of the best values in London for those just looking for a place to keep their belongings while they visit the city. It provides a quiet, utilitarian room that is easy walking distance to Kings Cross or Euston if you want to take a day trip by train or to the Russell Square tube stop if...

Just returned from a two night stay here. A well run small hotel in a great location, a short walk from King's Cross in a lovely quiet street in nice area with plenty of shops bars and restaurants. Russell Square tube station a short walk away. Our room overlooked the park and tennis courts opposite. We booked a room for...

I recently stayed for a week at the Crescent Hotel, Cartwright Gardens, in London, England. The room I had was meticulously clean with full bath. The hotel is situated on a very quiet street, yet close to Euston Road and the three main-line train stations, Euston, St. Pancras, and King's Cross. There are also many restaurants in the area within...

We had the Crescent recommended to us and decided to give it a go this August. We stayed in a double for five nights (Room 1). The room was quiet and comfortable, not huge by any means, but big enough and clean enough. There was free wifi that worked, although there is also a computer in the sitting room on...

The area was charming and quaint. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. Every recommendation they provided was fabulous! The full daily American breakfast was delicious and very filling. The wait staff was friendly and prompt, yet we were not rushed. We were conveniently located near the tube so it was easy to get around. Not far from the British...

The breakfast was fantastic and the service delightful. Even with my tiny single room, I still enjoyed the London charm. Sure I had to share a bathroom, but I knew that prior to booking. I would definitely stay there again if back in London on business. The single room I had was on the top floor with no lift. So,...

This small hotel offered a friendliness not seen in larger properties, run by Russian family in the heart of King's Cross in central London, an area filled with tourists from all over the world. Having read reviews of both the hotel and the area, I was not too surprised to find that it was located in an area that was...

As long as you aren't expecting a 5 Star hotel, I think you'll love this place. It has more of a B&B feel than hotel, with a friendly family coziness. The room and linens were immaculate and soft. We arrived early so had to stow our luggage while waiting on the room. The storage area was secure and the room...

I booked a room at the Crescent for three nights upon arrival in London and then for another night on my way out after traveling to Glasgow. A friend who'd stayed here before recommended it. I am so glad I took her up on her recommendation. This hotel is lovely for a budget price. Both the rooms I stayed in...
