The Montcalm Royal London House – City of London opens in UK

Independent upscale group Montcalm Luxury Hotels has opened the doors to its sixth property, the Montcalm Royal London House - City of London.

The development makes Finsbury Square home to what promises to be one of the City of London’s most sought-after spaces.

Situated just moments from Liverpool Street station and close to Shoreditch, the 253-bedroom hotel marks a remarkable transformation of an imposing mid-century office building into a stylish five star property with uniquely striking views of London’s City skyline.

At the Montcalm Royal London House - City of London, the group’s trademark timeless elegance has breathed new life into the building’s fine mid-century features, with statement copper pipe lighting and exposed brick walls mixed with original reclaimed parquet flooring and silk-lined corridors, feature staircases and turquoise leather stools.

The hotel’s main contractors and designers SGP Contractor along with renowned interior designer Russell Sage, Tonik Associates and 5Plus architects played a major role to make the hotel’s design and concept a unique one.

Similarly, its beautifully designed bedrooms and lounge areas blend effortless comfort with bespoke feature designs and boast a high IT-spec in each room. 

The hotel’s two restaurants, two bars and room service operations will be run by acclaimed restaurateurs, Tom and Ed Martin of ETM Group (The Jugged Hare, The Botanist Sloane Square and The Botanist Broadgate Circle).

Advanced guest technology doesn’t stop at complimentary high speed Wi-Fi.

All bedrooms also benefit from iPod docking stations, Smart 55” TVs and a complimentary handy smartphone service, giving guests unlimited 3G internet data and free local and international calls to selected countries.

The hotel’s stylish, state-of-the-art meeting and event spaces are due to open in November.

Fully versatile, the space can be hired for exclusive use for up to 300 guests, or individually for smaller events of around 60.

All private rooms boast natural daylight from the building’s large, striking light wells.

An urban spa is also due to launch in November, featuring beautiful Versace wall tiles, a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, two treatment rooms, a sauna and steam room, the perfect spot for some well-deserved relaxation after a long day at the office or taking in the sights.
