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.

We booked this hotel through booking.com and emailed them before the date of stay but had no response. We turned up at the hotel at date of stay and was not allowed to enter the hotel. The security people told us that our booking had been changed and gave us a name of a sister hotel some 17 minutes walk away. We asked to speak to the reception but they would not see us. We walked and tried to find the sister hotel but could not find it. In the end we walked into a Travel Lodge.

Outside ground unkept/untidy with sigarette stumps everywhere. Smokers and non smokers in the same outside area. Food not edible. Mangement very unhelpful to the point of being rude. Very disorganised with check in and check out. Definitely would not recommend this hotel. Alot of stairs and not suitable for people with limited mobility

Arrived to a cold room, asked for portable electric heater twice as they didn't know how to work therostat, they finally brought up a kettle instead! Ask them repeatedly to not give me breakfast but four days running I still got breakfast, eventually I wrote a massive note on door and finally they got the message. Windows grim and cracked sink DEFINITELY NOT a 5 star. No communication between staff and their organisational skills zero. Do not stay here!!

The Hotel states that it is a 5 star Hotel but currently does not offer a 5 star service. Having driven over 200 miles to reach the Hotel I we were looking forward to something to eat and drink in the room only to be informed there was ‘No Room Service’!! The Restuarant is not open so breakfast is served in the dining area at the rear of the attached Pub. We were told that we could not order the English inclusive breakfast because we had not pre booked it? We left the Hotel late morning to explore Shoreditch and returned to our room late afternoon to find the room had not been cleaned despite leaving the notice that it was available to clean. At checkout we informed the Receptionist of our dissatisfaction with our two nights stay and we were given the email address of the Manager. I sent 2 emails but I have not had the courtesy of a reply.

Having 5 employees in the lobby doesn´t make it a 5 star hotel. And the people working there is the primary problem: They have no idea what they are doing. On arrival we had to wait 3hours for a cleaned room. When we finally got one they gave us a room that someone else was living in, so we had to wait for another hour. If they say: "I have to check that, I´ll come back to you, no problem", then nothing will happen. They don´t come back to you. They don´t know what the breakfast cost, or the difference on English and Continental. They don´t bring your lugggage to the room as promised, they don´t clean the room, and they don´t bring new coffee replacements. The only employee having control was the doorman with a bowler-hat. He was 5 star. The lobby is small, no cosy places to relaxe. The wallpaper in the corridor is teared here and there. The bathroom had no warming, the heating cables not working. But the hotelroom was big, and the beds were comfortable.
