We booked the Montcalm for an overnight stay in London to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel is conveniently served be either Moorgate or Barbican tube stations, the walk from the Barbican is not the best as it is via a long concrete tunnel which is part of the Barbican complex ,the approach from Moorgate as far nicer. From the... More

My fiance and myself stayed here at the start of June and absolutely loved it! We were down in London for a 4 day stay and the staff couldn't have been more helpful, the room was spotless, the hotel itself is beautiful and its just a short walk from the nearest tube so its in a perfect location :-)

High standard of quality throughout the hotel and bedrooms. Staff extremely friendly and very helpful. No more than £10 taxi from most areas, with the usual stream of london cabs passing by each minute. The bar is bustling with people, lively and friendly. Great service throughout. The steam room and Sauna needs upgrading, but very clean, with towels and gowns... More

I have only had the pleasure to stay at the Montcalm a handful of times. It is like staying in a 7* property in the UAE without the 7* price tag.

The hotel is in a great location being only a 5 minute walk from the Barbican tube station. The reception is lovely and the reception staff friendly and helpful. I was shown to my room which was small, but perfectly adequate for what I needed. I was facing the road and had I not taken ear plugs it might have... More

Even before we walked in we were warmly greeted, this was appreciated as we were soaked by a walk in the rain, so the offer of dry towels at the door was welcome!

Stayed at the Montcalm at the Brewery last night and have to say from start to finish it was fabulous. From booking the room, by telephone a few weeks ago, the service was very helpful and informative. We were celebrating a special occasion so they upgraded us from a club room to a club suite (a Wow Suite). It certainly... More

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
