Positive Reviews

Attractive rooms and free Wi-Fi

Rooms are stylish and very clean Free Wi-Fi comes in very handy for business and while travelling The furnishings and beds are both comfortable and modern, and the bathrooms large and luxurious The front desk will often upgrade your room, which is a great perk.

Excellent, attentive staff

Hotel staff is both friendly and efficient; they are quick to resolve any issues, help with bags and provide area information to guests Between the excellent staff and well-maintained property, this hotel offers great value.

Good Location for transit

The hotel is conveniently located close Barbican Underground Station and not far from Liverpool Street Station This makes it great for business travel, as well as a weekend getaway or trip It’s great if you are attending a show at the Barbican and there are great restaurants in the area.

Negative Reviews

A maze of corridors

While the hotel name refers to suites, the rooms are not suites but rather smaller The hotel is a bit of a maze as the building is a converted brewery, with corridors and stairs; it can be complicated locating your room That said, the staff are eager to show you the way and the historic building is really neat.

Pricey breakfast

While the hotel’s breakfast is good, it’s overpriced You are better off heading out to a café in the area and grabbing a bite to eat The pub is rather pricey also but there are alternatives in the area.

Hotel name is misleading

The name London City Suites online is misleading The hotel is hard to find, make sure you look for the name The Montcalm® at the Brewery and not simply London City Suites London City Suites by Montcalm® and The Montcalm® at the Brewery are sister hotels across from each other.
