“Horrible!!”
Reviewed 16 October 2011

I stayed in the Crestfield Hotel in London, England. Upon entering the room I was assigned, I was dismayed. It reeked of urine odor, and was obviously dirty. I asked for a different room and was told nothing else was available. I asked for cleaning, which was very barely and obviously grudgingly done. I had a very tight schedule, so had neither time or ability to locate anything more suitable. This was absolutely the dirtiest, most uncomfortable, most despicable lodging I have ever been in. My complaints to hotel personnel were pretty much disregarded. No air conditioning. Lavatory in a corner of the sleeping area; you must go through the shower to get to the toilet. I really don't know how to emphasize the "HORRIBLE" strongly enough!!!

Single room is small and plain (like most other budget rooms in London). Dusty bedsheets, worn carpets and cheap-looking, old furniture. Showerhead looks disgusting (see picture). But for the price (at 55 pounds for an ensuite room with a generous continental breakfast), I think I can't complain much. Most of the receptionists on duty are unenthusiastic and unfriendly (yes, they hate their job).

Overall, ok if you're staying for just a couple of nights as the location is excellent (5 minutes on foot to St Pancras underground and neighbourhood seems fairly safe).

I stayed in Crestfield Hotel, Kings Cross St Pancras, London with my wife for three days during this Summer 2011. The hotel location is excellent, 5 mins walk from St Pancras Station. Clean and neat with good morning breakfast. Only drawback is rooms are bit small and no cross ventilation, the bathroom is also very small, but with nice hot water.

We found the Crestfield to be very well located for my wife & I to get to it from Heathrow & it was located very close to the Kings Cross Tube Station to access London. There was also several bus stops nearby that allowed access to much of London also. The room was small but did the job & was very clean. The WC was also small but the shower was one of the better ones we have had in Europe. There were several restaurants & pubs within easy walking distance from the hotel. Considering all of the hotels & B&B's we have stayed in during our European trips this hotel gives good value for the price & we would stay there again. Its not a 4* hotel but does the job & is very clean & the attendents are very polite & helpful.

Room Tip: We stayed in the lower level near the Breakfast room & it was OK.

The hotel was booked because we wanted to be close to St Pancras Station. We were shown to a downstairs room that was newly renovated and was lovely except for the noise of kids running up and down the stairs nearby. The bed was comfortable and the shower was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again
