Crescent Hotel in London, United KingdomFor 50 years we have served the discerning independent traveller. Our regular guests have long enjoyed the Crescent Hotel's tranquil comforts. They have been pleased to recommend our warm, efficient service and elegant, Georgian building set in its spectacular, garden crescent. Here you will walk the pavement of famous former residents such as Rowland Hill - creator of the Penny Post. We probably have one of the best locations in London. London, old and new, lies at your feet and we stand ready to help you get the most from your visit with our local knowledge in your home from home.

Despite being only minutes from Russell Square, Euston, St.Pancras International and Kings Cross stations and with buses in every direction, Cartwright Gardens is a haven of quiet. The private garden square and four tennis courts (we supply racquets and balls) is available to our guests. Our 27 bedrooms, most en-suite, furnished to reflect the Georgian architecture, have T.V.,direct dial phones, tea and coffee making facilities and hairdryers. There are shared bathroom facilities on all floors and bathrobes are provided. Breakfast is served in the building's original kitchen with its large cast iron cooking range. Help yourself to the buffet of cereals, fruit, yoghurt and juice and enjoy the individually cooked English breakfast which will sustain you through the day! In our elegant lounge with its free internet access tea, coffee and light snacks are available. Within a short stroll we boast the British Library, British Museum, Percival David Foundation of Chinese Art, Dickens House Museum, Sir John Soanes Museum and Covent Garden. Our location is second to none.

This elegant Georgian hotel in Bloomsbury (Central London), overlooking a large garden square offers style at a sensible price.

Map / Location / Directions
We are within walking distance of major London stations - rail and underground.

By car
We have excellent public transport access from all London airports. Heathrow: Picaddilly line to Russell Sq; Gatwick or Luton: Direct Train to St Pancras International; Stansted: Direct Train to Tottenham Hale or Liverpool Street and then short underground trip. We are also a few minutes walking distance from the Eurostar Terminal at St Pancras International.
If you are coming from one of the major airports and are in a group it may be cheaper for a chauffeured car to meet you at the terminal rather than use public transport. We have found that On-Time Airports (020-8838-3299) is reliable and good value.

Driving & Parking
If you are driving to us, you should know that you may park overnight outside the hotel on weekdays from 6:30pm to 8:30am. On Saturday the period is 1:30pm to 8:30am on Monday morning - so no restrictions on Sunday. There are various car parks in the vicinity.
