Historical Traveler Reviews The Montcalm London
This is the first time I've posted a review...mostly because I've just never taken the time to sit and write one for any other hotel we've stayed in, but I just had to write one for this one! We were so pleased with all aspects of it! First of all, it wasn't the size of a shoe box!! There was actually enough room for the two of us to walk around at the same time! There was a table with two chairs, a writing desk, and an out of the way space to store our suitcases. Lots of drawers and closet space...we actually UNpacked our suitcases! The bed was sooo comfortable! The bathroom was lovely, and the water was nice and hot, with water pressure better than at my own house...I didn't want to leave the shower!! It was quiet and the location was great!! Two very quick blocks to the Tube station. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we first arrived, a light bulb was burnt out in the bathroom and they replaced it immediatley. The continental breakfast was pretty good, but could have had a little more variety. That was our only disappointment, but I think it was more because we stayed for 6 nights and were getting bored with the same food everyday...we could've paid extra and ordered from the menu, though. Overall, I was thrilled! Especially having stayed in Europe many times and having come to expect paying an arm and a leg for a shoebox. Highly recommended!!
Classy with excellent service
Nov. 2004 trip to London for one week and stayed at the Montcalm Nikko. I thoroughly researched it before I went and took note of the high across the board reviews here. Well, they were right on the money!
The hotel is clean. the rooms large by European standards. the bathrooms nice and clean and the showers have lovely water pressure. Housekeeping is very responsive to the needs of the guests and we were very pleased with this hotel.
The Montcalm is in a very quiet area. It's also convenient, with two small stores across the street (buy your water and soft drinks here -- not in the private bar in your room, much cheaper) and the Marble Arch station around the corner, about a five-minute walk from the hotel. It's a safe area and there are plenty of good stores nearby if you feel the need to shop. We didn't buy much of anything because the stores were so expensive.
I've stayed at several hotels in London and this is by far my favorite. Reliable wake-up calls, the concierges are total professionals. It truly doesn't get better than this.
Very central intimate hotel
I've just returned from a week in London. I come to London every year for buisness and till now this is the best hotel I've been to.
Very nice stuff, great breakfast, nice room and a very good location just by Marble Arch. I will stay there again for sure and recommend it anytime.
Top notch accommodation
My wife and I just returned from a week stay. We have stayed in various London hotels over the years. The service we received at the Montcalm was superior to all of the other hotels. The front desk, maid service, engineering, food service, each department was prompt and friendly.
The room itself was large for European hotels. The hotel is small enough that we never had to wait for the elevator. The continental breakfast was fine. Several internet cafes in the neighborhood as well as convenience stores and restaurants.
We did not need the high speed internet connection but it was available.
A short walk to Hyde Park as well as the Marble Arch tube station made the stay enjoyable also.
I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
Mont6calm hotel review
i stayed at the montcalm hotel oct. 2004 and it was terrific. the service and ambience made our stay most enjoyable. tony the concierge, was most knowledge and helpful. the continental breakfast was included in our price and was excellent.I would definitely stay here again. its location was most central and only a few minutes from the underground. its a winner
Wonderful serene place to stay in London
we had a wonderful deal here, low rates including breakfast, in a
well-located and very dignified but calm place to stay. Get the best deal
you can here, but it is a great splurge place in a city of very much
more expensive hotels.
I would not take the kids there, though. More an adult place.
My husband and I were in London for the week-end and stayed at the Montcalm Hotel. I can't recommend it highly enough, it was simply superb.
The service was excellent, the room was divine and the staff couldn't help us enough. The location was fantastic, just 2 mins walk to Oxford Street and Hyde Park.
I have stayed in 5* hotels on Park Lane before (which shall remain nameless) and none of them came close to the Montcalm.
We just returned from a weeks stay at the Montcalm and I have to say it was a very good choice. The hotel was part of a Virgin Atlantic package to London and a good deal for my husband and I. The hotel is located 1 block from Marble Arch, very close to the tube and centrally located.
The staff were extremely professional and able to assist with restaurant recommendations, directions, getting a cab, etc. Our room was larger than I expected, ammenities included bathrobes, mini bar, safe, hair dryer, cable tv. Continental breakfast was included and was very adequate (although you can upgrade to a full English for $2 more).
The hotel is right off of Oxford Street with loads of shopping and places to eat. The hotel caters to Japanese visitors and is quiet and attentive to the needs of the guests. I would not hesitate to stay at the Moncalm when I return. The feeling is very Brittish with the services of a larger hotel.
A friend & I stayed at the Montcalm last year for a week. What a pleasant place - with just enough British flavor to feel authentic, but not stuffy or generic - like many "chain" hotels. The staff, food, room, location, ambience, you name it - it was just right. The rooms are just slightly smaller than USA standards, but entirely adequate & quite large compared with most London hotels. The staff accommodated ALL our request, assisting with locating lost jewelry, booking tours & theatre, etc. The block walk to Oxford Street and Marble Arch tube station was a special convenience. The restaurants in the area were no comparison with the Hotel's. Just "go there". You'll be delighted.
Special note: Don't make phone calls from the hotel - there are grocery stores & souvenir shops nearby - buy a phone card.
Great location and comfortable
I stayed at this hotel for four nights and was very pleased with it.
The location could not be better - approximately one block north of the Marble Arch tube stop, about a ten minute walk from Paddington station.
The hotel was quite comfortable. I had requested a single room, and ended up with a good sized room with a double bed, great shower, TV and all the usual amenities.
I got a special last-minute rate of L100, which was an excellent deal for this place.

Day 5 in London Today was the first full free day in London. Mackenzie and I jam packed it full too. We started the day off with a tour of the Tower of London. This was cool because we got a sneak peak at the lives of the Monarchs. We also saw the armory at the tower and the Crown Jewels. I don't have any photos of the jewels because we were not allowed to take any. But that was the most gold and ...
