M by Montcalm London Shoreditch Tech City: Guest reviews


Located in the part of London where the trendy hipster eateries of Shoreditch meet the suits of the financial district in nearby Canary Wharf, the M by Montcalm London Shoreditch Tech City is a luxury haven amid the hustle and bustle of these busy parts of the capital.

Offering five star luxury to guests and with a rooftop bar that overlooks the distinctive London skyline, this hotel is the perfect spot for couples, families and business travellers alike to relax and unwind during a trip to one of the world’s most buzzing cities.


But do our guests think the M by Montcalm hotel is as perfect as we do? Out of the just over 1,000 TripAdvisor reviews we had as of the end of January 2017, a significant proportion (around 760) were ‘excellent’, while 252 were ‘very good’. Let’s take a look at what our past guests said:

“This hotel has everything going for it, the staff are so friendly and helpful,” one guest enthused, while another called the hotel “fabulous”.

One previous guest explained that they had had their room standard upgraded to a junior suite upon arrival, “which was beautiful and spacious with a huge, super-comfy bed and lovely Hermes toiletries; we were delighted to find a bottle of prosecco, chocolates and fruit waiting for us”.

We believe in making every guest’s stay special, which is why we’ve spent a long time investing in some of the very best luxury hotel facilities in London. We’re particularly proud of the spa facilities at the M by Montcalm, which include a range of massages, environ facials, laser hair removal and access to a heated pool.

One past guest raved: “The spa was lovely and room was faultless (enjoyed all the gadgets), found staff to be friendly and attentive. It’s a great location and excellent value for money for London. Would recommend!!!”

Three exclamation marks shows they definitely had a good time at the M by Montcalm, and in case you’re wondering what those gadgets refer to, each room comes with a tablet for use during your stay, from which guests can control the lighting, curtains and order room service. There’s also free, fast Wi-Fi available in every room, as well as mood lighting that guests can dim or brighten as they please and underfloor heating for added comfort.


If you can drag yourself away from the luxury of the room, the Sky Lounge bar on the 16th floor is a must-visit, with one reviewer stating: “Cocktails in the Sky Lounge and the downstairs bar were spot on.”

The hotel is also home to the Tonic and Remedy bar, where the delectable drinks on offer are inspired by Shoreditch’s history as a place where apothecaries could purchase their supplies after they were shipped in from the nearby docks. Cocktail menu highlights include the Apple and Rye, which is made from tequila, ginger ale, apple and honey flavours, while the 8 After is inspired by the classic chocolate mint and features vanilla-flavoured vodka, double cream, white chocolate and creme de menthe.

Meanwhile, the M by Montcalm’s onsite restaurant Urban Coterie has a special Sunday brunch deal that sees sweet and savoury breakfast dishes served up alongside unlimited mimosa, while recommended items on the a la carte menu include venison haunch served with caramelised celeriac and Italian greens, and duck breast accompanied by corn, black garlic and candied walnuts.
