This is a small hotel squeezed into an old English house. Left and right are more of similar hotels all around Argyle Square. The house itself is like a labyrinth, not easy to find my tiny room on top of one of the several stair cases. I stayed in hostels, budget hotels and motels, but this was the smallest room... More

Being pretty well travelled on a budget, I can cope with a lot... Friendly staff a plus :-) No where on our booking were we made aware of sharing a toilet with a floor.... I've hostelled before, and I'm past that. Next- the 'shower'. It was a cupboard that they had turned into a shower with a curtain, and no... More

Excellently placed just down from Kings Cross and St Pancras, I was in one of the basement rooms which was no where near as bad as some suggest. Clean and tidy, the desk staff were good and I was right next to the breakfast room where a decent breakfast was provided. In all no complaints and if I do have... More

The location of this hotel was fantastic! Very close to Kings Cross station, so we had access to lots of Underground lines. Also close to British Library. You will have to take the Underground to get to the main attractions, but it's very convenient and easy. The hotel room was bigger than I expected. I stayed in the triple room,... More

I stayed in the Montana Excel Hotel for six nights with three other girls. We came to London for a Design Show as part of our final degree so we were looking for somewhere to stay nearby the design centre and within our budget. We stayed in the 'family room' which consisted of one double bed and two single beds.... More

The location of Montana Excel Hotel is excellent. Just few hundred meters from King's Cross Station. Even though the hotel was close to the station, the square next to the hotel was quiet. The hotel itself was clean, including the hotel room and on-suite toilet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was ok (toast, bacon, eggs,... More

This hotel is in a great location close to Kings Cross / St Pancras. Unfortunately we were on the top flor which wasn't fun with two large suitcases to get up all the stairs. We had a room with a shower but shared toilet. The shower was to small to use & we are not big people. The room was... More

The Montana Hotel was in a terrific location for sightseeing and yet it was quiet, too. It is on the corner of Cromwell and Gloucester Roads and about a half a mile from the V&A. There were plenty of good restaurants nearby as well as a Waitrose, a Boots and other stores. The tube station is directly kitty corner across... More
