“Charming hotel in a wonderful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2009

I plan to return to this hotel next time I visit London. It is small and friendly and in a great location: on a very quiet street next door to the British Museum and within easy walking distance to many attractions. The room was small and not inexpensive, but given the prices in London it seemed like a good value.

This hotel is very conveniently located to the Underground, British Museum, and theater district. We were there for an entire week and the staff were very helpful with theater tickets and restaurant recommendations. The view from our ground floor Deluxe King room was not good but it was wonderfully quiet. One note, breakfast is expensive. Try the small Italian cafe in the park around the corner. Beautiful setting and good prices.

Myself & my wife stated at the Montague for 3 days in July & I really cannot find any fault with this hotel, but, more importantly, my wife also cannot find any fault either!! The service, the staff, the rooms were all excellent, and no request was too much trouble.

Over the years I have stayed in a lot of the 'big-name' brand hotels, mostly around the Middle East & Asia region. I would say the main difference between these hotels & the Montague is that the Montague, despite being part of a hotel group, manages to maintain a personal touch that always seems to be missing from most of the larger hotel groups.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone & most certainly would stay there again.

This hotel has a great location - half a block from The British Museum, half a block from beautiful Russell Square and the tube of the same name. It's small (60 rooms) and on a quiet street. The decor is charming, and the service is impeccable. From the front desk to the waitstaff in the dining room to the maids, everything is taken care of promptly and cheerfully. Mustafa, the concierge, was particularly helpful, from airport arrangements (car to airport, boarding pass, and more) to getting us tickets to "hard to get" entertainments, he was always there for me and my son whom I was visiting. If my son is still living in London next year, I definitely will be back.

This was the second stay for my partner and I. The Montague is an excellent hotel mostly because of the incredible staff and wonderful location.

Before we left the US, I contacted the concierge, Mustafa, for dinner recommendations, theatre tickets, museum tickets, etc. Not only did they fill each request, but the tickets at the theatre could not have been better. We also needed a car to go back to the airport and they picked a fine service with a friendly driver. The concierge, Mustafa, and his staff is one of the best and most helpful I have met.

The full breakfast was excellent each morning. Eggs to order, potatoes, juices, cereal, bacon, etc. You could go for hours before you needed to eat again. The breakfast staff was also very friendly and good.

Our room, Bloomsbury King, overlooked the inner courtyard. It was quiet, sunny and nicely decorated. The room was clean when we arrived and each day the cleaning staff did an great job. The bathroom was modern with plenty of hot water. We loved the room, it was wonderful.

Each day we were greeted in the main lobby by Dirk the General Manager and Sal the Room Manager. They were extremely friendly and they obviously made sure everything at the hotel was running smoothly. We had a few minor requests and when mentioned to Dirk, Sal or anyone staff member they made sure our needs were addressed quickly and in a friendly manner.

In addition to the great staff, breakfast and room, the location of this hotel could not be better. If the British Museum had a back door, it would have been less than 100 steps to the museum. The theatre district is right there. There are a great number of restaurants in the area. So if you want shopping, theatre, eating or museums, this is the place to stay.

Again, we cannot say enough about this hotel. You will love it.

Stayed mid-week for 3 nights,found this hotel to be extremely good ,all the previous good reviews were spot on.
The service was the best I have ever come across and the hotel was very clean.All the staff greeted you whatever their place in the chain.
Breakfast was enjoyable and the coffee was excellent,in fact I was going to ask what it was but forgot.
My only moans were the size of the room,we booked a double room and boy was it tiny.
If I was there on business and was by myself it would have been fine,but for a couple
on a leisure break that were slightly tired after tramping around it was not comfortable by any means.
That would not stop me staying there again but next time I would upgrade to another
room.

I have stayed here a couple of times now both for business and pleasure. It is a charming old school style hotel, with incredibly friendly and helpful service, which you really dont find anymore. It's also one tube stope from St.pancras, which makes it really practical. Well worth the visit!
