Excellent location because of its close proximity to St Pancras/ Kings Cross, tube National and International Rail stations. Small room - clean linen, comfortable bed, and we were grateful to be on the ground floor because of our large, unweildy bags. Unfortunately the shower was not clean but diry and mouldy - even though the water pressure was perfectly adequate....

We only stayed one afternoon and night at the Montana. We arrived from Heathrow and there was a pack & play set up for our 7 month old. The room was very small, but all we required for our overnight and very early morning departure. We had no complaints.

Because I was travelling by eurostar I needed a hotel near the St.Pancrass station. The Montana Excel had a good price so I decided to stay here. Yes, I have read the comments but gave it a try. The hotel is a short walk from both the St.Pancrass and King's Cross stations. If you arrive by underground be sure to...

Since 2003, my partner and I have stayed here on four separate occasions and both of us love the place. There are actually two hotels sharing the same entrance - Montana and Montana Excel. Excel has a sightly better decor, all rooms are en-suite, and the rates are a tad higher. The rooms are small, but if you are going...

Conveniently located right next to King´s Cross tubestation, which has 4 different lines to choose from. Granted it´s a bit far to walk to anywhere touristy, but with the tube so close it does not matter. The breakfast served here is all you can eat of a full english breakfast - not something you normally see at hotels in this...

Exhausted after flying, this was a depressing room to come to. Duct tape covered the tears in the hallway carpet, and the room was spartan. No outlets in the bathroom, and no mirror in the room - made it difficult to blow dry, etc. No towel racks. The window had been bashed in (although outside it was covered with another...

We've stayed in the Montana Exel for three nights and didn't like it at all. We tried our best to spend as little time as possible in the hotel because we didn't feel comfortable at all when staying there, mainly because it was really dirty. Our room hasn't been vacuumed for quite a while when we first entered it and...
