The Crescent Hotel is a good place to stay. It is situated in Bloomsbury, a quiet neighbourhood, nicely located nearby Euston Station. Just a few minutes walk to the underground. From this point, any place of interest is within 20 minutes travelling maximum.
The hotel is nice, the people are friendly. But it's also very narrow. You cannot pass each other on the stairs (stairs to the rooms, stairs to the breakfast). Our room (nummer 3, ground floor, nicely situated next to the relaxing room / reception) was not all that small, but the bathroom definitely was. It is seperated by a sliding door which doesn't completely close. So there is not much privacy when travelling with a friend or someone with whom you normally do not share beds with. Room 3 has two seperated beds and a table with hot water to make hot chocolate, tea or coffee. It also has a small desk with a chair, two other chairs and a television.
Having breakfast at the Crescent is quite a challenge when the hotel is fully booked. There are about 8 tables, but many more rooms. So often people line up to wait for a table. We were constantly running out of yoghurt, orange juice, glasses and other stuff. The ladies were very busy attending everybody and trying their best to make everybody happy, but it is just too busy this time of day. The breakfast room is also very narrow and people who gather around the buffet stand in the way of the people having breakfast at their table.
Altogether this is a nice, affordable location to stay a few days in London. Should it be busy, leave breakfast as it is en go elsewhere to enjoy it. At Euston station there are all sorts of wonderful shops where you can enjoy a really wide scale of food.
