This is an ideal, good value place to stay if you are catching the train from Euston or Kings Cross St Pancras or if you are visiting UCL for any reason. The hotel is in a charming Georgian Crescent about 10 minutes walk from both stations. It's in a quiet location and the rooms are simple but comfortable and clean....

Booked a triple ensuite. Stayed for 3 nights. The pillows were thin and the mattress on the double bed is too soft and uncomfortable for a good night sleep. One of the pillow case was fraying - with 2 big holes and many more potential holes (see photos). The bedsheet has black stains. None of these was changed by housekeeping....

Great hotel - stayed here for one night in June then went back for 16 nights in July/August. I was a Gamesmaker working at the Olympics and this hotel was a great find. Charged me the same rate during the Olympics as they did for my first stay, so can't say fairer than that. Great location, easy walk from Kings...

We recently spent 6 nights in this hotel and it was a big letdown!! Firstly, we were three adults in what was advertised as a triple room. However, it was hardly big enough for even being called a double. There was no room to put or store ANYTHING. The closet was tiny and hard to get to; there was NOWHERE...

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night. The hotel was chosen for its proximity to St Pancras station. The location was great but not the room. The ensuite toilet/bathroom was really small and barely equipped. Imagine there is no place to put the bath towels in the bathroom that they have to be placed on the bedspread. The shampoo...

I stayed here for two nights while at a conference at UCL's Institute of Archaeology, and found the Crescent Hotel to be perfectly serviceable as a London base. It took less than 10 minutes to walk to the IoA and the area felt very safe at night. It is also close to a number of underground stations, the British Museum,...

I stayed for 2 nights at the end of October. I booked the single room with shared bathroom. In reality they gave me the room with shower but because they had problems with the hot water steam (that was setting off the fire alarm) it wasn't usable and I had a separate bathroom with shower and wc (very close to...

I enjoyed very much my stay in the hotel. It is very quite and charming. Conveniently located in the hearth of Bloomsbury, close to the British Library. In front of the hotel there is a beautiful garden. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. I liked the feeling of being in a traditional house. Breakfast is traditional, not many choice but...

This was our fourth visit (Sept 27 - Oct 3). We like the double ensuite rooms on the first floor (American second floor). We're getting a little old for non-ensuite. There is at least one bath tub in the common area, for those who have trouble with the small shower. When we were there, there was a tremendous rainstorm at...
