The Crescent Townhouse

The Crescent TownhouseThis elegant and intimate hotel offers superb accommodation at a very smart price. The Crescent Townhouse has an informal but gracious atmosphere that brings delighted guests back time after time. Behind the Crescent Townhouse's striking 19th century listed facade can also be found the street level cosmopolitan Metro Brasserie with its wine bar ambience and the welcoming traditional Bar Twelve. The Crescent Townhouse earns bonus points though for its unrivalled location. It may be discreetly tucked away, insulated from sight and sound of the bustling Botanic Avenue milieu, but step outside and you are on the doorstep of the best of South Belfast's night life and entertainment.
