I like the Bloomsbury area of London and have stayed many times in this district. Goodge Street offers a number of hotels but I've never found a good one....and it's a really noisy street. I chose the Montague as a result of Tripadvisor reviews and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms here are not cheap (you can certainly find cheaper ones in Goodge Streeet) but the double-glazing actually works and in any case Montague Street is much quieter. Why choose this hotel? Well, the nearest tube is Holborn (on both the Central and Piccadilly lines) and convenient for Oxford Street, Green Park, South Kensington Museums and the airport. It is just around the corner (literally) from the British Museum and Trafalgar Square is not far to the south. St Pancras (if you are heading to Paris) is a 10-minute taxi ride away. The room was pleasant but typically small (it always amazes me how much Londoners can cram into such a small space) and I was satisfied with my three night stay. I was travelling solo this time and often single rooms are not much better than walk-in cupboards - but this room was fine. The daytime staff were very helpful but the night-time receptionist ought to bone up on his local knowledge (he wasn't sure what time the BM opened...!). Bar staff were young and not that sharp. The restaurant looks nice but is expensive in what is already an expensive city. UKL 24 for a steak is pretty steep but there are plenty of cheaper places near the BM. In summary, I've learned from experience that you have to pay a bit more in this city to get something considerably better and I would stay here again. Oh...and full marks for free internet, which so many hotels continue to charge for.
