As one of London's most notable hotels, The Montcalm at The Brewery London City is essentially the spot to be in London. Positioned in the very heart of the city of London, The Montcalm at The Brewery London City is a five star hotel set within an historic listed building and comes complete with its very own gourmet gastropub, The Jugged Hare. Formerly the site of Whitbread & Co, Britain's first purpose-built mass production brewery, the original building dates back from as early at 1750 when Samuel Whitbread moved his brewing operations to Chiswell Street on the 'eastern rim of Georgian London,' now the fashionable Barbican. With state-of-the-art business conference facilities plus excellent transport links - the hotel is conveniently located close to three Underground stations - The Montcalm at The Brewery London City makes the perfect meeting venue, accommodating from 2 up to 150 delegates. And of course it offers luxurious suites, deluxe studios and City or Club rooms as well as acclaimed English cuisine at the Chiswell Street Dining Rooms.

Myself and my wife booked this hotel and were looking for a wonderful place to stay for our first London date night in ages. However, we turned up at the hotel and we were told the hotel was shutdown and not open for stays. This was not communicated to us through booking.com not the hotel. As you can imagine, we had a state of panic thinking where were we going to stay!? The employee at the hotel said our booking has been diverted to Montcalm Royal London House which was a 5 minutes walk away. This was the only reason I have given 3 stars because they had said we arranged a room elsewhere. We attended the Montcalm Royal London House hotel and the lady at reception had said that she was not sure if they even had a room and took over 15 minutes to find out if we could get a room. To her credit, she found us a room and did everything she could. All I would ask for in future is some communication regarding cancelled bookings or diverted bookings to another hotel.

This is a beautiful hotel with attentive staff who are really keen to ensure there is customer satisfaction as the hotel reopens post Covid. The rooms are stylish, clean and well appointed in an impressive historic building. The room could not be faulted. Of course, things are not running quite as swiftly and smoothly as they did precovid, but these are small teething problems that in no way impact on an enjoyable stay. For example, the kettle in our room did not work, however, it took two minutes for the staff to arrive with another. For us it was the perfect location, right next to the Barbican and so close to St Paul’s.

Similar to other recent reviews, genuinely surprised how this hotel can be considered 5* in any way. Perhaps Covid goes some way to explaining it, but the overall levels of service, quality of the hotel and rooms, as well as experience just isn't up there for what they charge. 3* would be more appropriate. This was my second stay - check in was again painfully slow. How can something so simple take 10/15 minutes plus? The room was fine, but despite requesting a room that didn't look on to the main road outside the front of the hotel, we were given a room that looked out on to the main road. Also had very low supplies of toiletries (one bar of soap, two toilet rolls) - again, you'd expect more from a 5* hotel. For some reason there always appeared to be the smell of cabbage in the corridors too - perhaps from the nearby pub. Key cards kept being inactivated as held next to phone/wallet which resulted in 3 separate trips to have them reactivated. On all 3 occasions I had to wait for other people checking in which didn't help. On leaving we had planned to have a walk around London before heading home, and asked to leave our bags, but were told no as the hotel was closing - again, disappointing and would have liked to have known beforehand. Overall I can't recommend the Montcalm - they just haven't got the basics right and I'd encourage you to spend your money elsewhere.

Booked 2 rooms for weekend of October 3rd 2020. At no point was I told that the hotel was closed. My family arrived outside to discover that it was all locked up with a ‘Dear Customer, we regret that....’ notice on the gates. We decamped to the Montcalm London City and was told that they had expected more bookings at ‘The Brewery’ but there had been insufficient to merit re-opening. Apologies were forthcoming about the lack of notification but it was a very unsettling experience. They really shouldn’t take bookings that they cannot honour.

A lovely hotel in what was once an old brewery - lovely décor throughout the building. Received a friendly welcome on arrival and all the staff were helpful during our stay. We had a problem with our room when we arrived and were unable to get the air conditioning to work but it was dealt with efficiently and we were moved to another room. There is a pub attached which also does meals but we were staying when there was a wedding reception so it was impossible to get in there on one evening. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again.
