“Irritating lapses in hotel that is otherwise ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2012

This was my 5th or 6th stay over a twelve year period. The hotel is much improved. Our room was nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. The room was on the main floor just beyond the kitchen and another service area. It probably was a service room converted to a bedroom. The bathroom was small with a shower, no tub, but adequate. The bathroom was extremely hot, so much so that if we left the door to the bathroom open the room became stifling. The staff knew this. They gave us the remote for an additional air conditioner when I complained. The air conditioning units only put out freezing air. The toilet only flushed erratically. That is, the handle felt like it would break no matter how much pressure we put on it. Then later, it would flush. The safe hadn't been re-set. The person at the desk blamed "the girls" for not checking on this. The TV remote worked erratically. It took a day for it to be fixed. This hotel needs a checklist for the maids, so details aren't overlooked. There is a nice Indian restaurant in the hotel and breakfast with fruit and dry cereal, toast, and lots of tea or coffee came with the room. Eggs or an English breakfast were available at an additional cost. The location is right near the tube and in walking distance of the Victoria and Albert and Science museums. There is a bank and internet cafe across the street.

I did lots of shopping around for a nice hotel that I could afford for a week in London, and I loved the Montana Hotel. My daughter is in school at Imperial College, so she was just two blocks away. The hotel is a short walk from the Gloucester Road tube station, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and Kensington Palace. The hotel is clean, nicely appointed, safe, and the staff is helpful.My single room was small, but hey, this is London. The breakfast room is also nice with a good selection of food. The hotel also gave me a good discount for booking for a week's stay. Some people complain about the lack of in room bathrooms, but if you want to have an in-room bath, you can certainly request that. I will definitely stay here when I return to London again.

Some people might have been disappointed by the absence of toilets/showers in some rooms. When you are aware of it, you can focus on the advantages of this hotel, in terms of location, in terms of cleanliness and helpful staff.
The common shower/bathroom is clean so no complaints.
Breakfast is varied and correct for this kind of hotel.

The location was great as a short walk from the tube, the room was clean and basic but what do you expect for the price. Cant remember his name but the Geordie man who worked on reception was very helpful and friendly.
The breakfast was great and included in the price, if your looking for a base for a couple of nights to just get changed and rest whilst you spend your days exploring this it the ideal place.
And for those that want shampoo and shower gel my message to you is.......... bring your own!

Room Tip: Ground floor room number 500 I shared with 4 of my friends and there was ample room for us all!

Fantastic hotel in a great location ... Very close to Gloucester Road tube station. Just 10 minutes walk to the VA and the Museum of Natural History. Great breakfast included in rate and the staff are very efficient and friendly. Was there for the Jubilee weekend and this hotel provided excellent value for money. I certainly recommend this hotel.
