Be honest; how often do you use your mobile phone? If you’re anything like the average British person, it’s likely to be more than 10,000 times a year. Yes, that’s right; checking your phone’s screen in excess of 10,000 times across 365 days – that’s (if your arithmetic could do with a helping hand) 28 times every day. It’s worth mentioning because, whichever way you slice it, we use our phones a lot. And in using them a lot, we surf the Internet a great deal and, in doing that, we discover, upload and access applications a great deal. Out of those, say, 28 times a day you use your phone, how many of them are accessing an app?

Book via an app

Why ask that particular question, you may ask? Well, let’s answer it by asking another. The next time you book a getaway somewhere, would you like to do so by the most easy-to-use, reliable and accessible way possible? Silly question – the answer’s obviously yes. The fact is then, should you be looking to spend your next short break in the dynamically diverse world-city that’s London, you shouldn’t be looking to spend hours sitting at your PC scrolling through Google search for hotel deals, you should be booking your accommodation swiftly, easily and securely via an app. It’s time to join the 21st Century when it comes to hotel bookings – it’s time to book your break via The Montcalm luxury hotels app.

Convenience

So, just what’s so great about The Montcalm app? First of all, it’s about the convenience. Wherever you are in the world, whatever the time of day (or night), you can use the app to browse through every one of the London-based Montcalm family of hotels; flicking through images of their interiors and exteriors, details of their amenities (including their restaurants, cocktail bars, bistros and traditional brasseries) and, of course, maps of their locations so you can check exactly where they are in the city in relation to major landmarks and sites of interest you’ll doubtless want to spend time visiting.

Cost-effective

Our app has also been specifically designed to help users save money on their visit to London. How so? Because, via the app and, therefore, via your phone, you can receive updates on the very latest deals, special offers and seasonal packages on offer at our various properties – before anyone else. That means that, should you be considering coming to the UK capital for a getaway with that special someone of if you’re looking to book an unforgettable trip with your family in tow or, frankly, whatever the nature of your desired visit to the city, we’re bound to have a terrific package on the table, available to you via our app, to ensure you enjoy a timeless trip to London for a money-saving price.

All in all then, the Montcalm app is a cost-effective, time-efficient and easy-to-navigate way to book a room in London; it’s the way of the future in accommodation booking – only it’s available right now!

Apps have transformed the world we all live in; no question. For instance, think you need to know a big city intimately to know exactly where to go – and when – to experience the night of your life? Well, you’d be wrong. Today, all you need is the right app uploaded to your phone.

And London’s a great example. It’s absolutely teeming with fantastic retail therapy options, delicious-dish-serving restaurants, awesome daytime tourist-focused attractions and sensational night-time bars, nightclubs and venues – of course it is, it’s one of the world’s most exciting, beguiling cities. And to hunt down the very best of these locations is easier than it’s ever been before because you can do so at the touch or two of a button on the very device you carry around in your pocket wherever you are in the world, whatever the time of day.

Getting app and about

Don’t doubt it; the days of word-of-mouth are pretty much over; the currency of hot, happening joints is now digital – it’s all about recognition via app. A good starting point is the established London Nightlife app; it puts together listings of the very best bars and clubs in the city. Meanwhile, the equally as reliable Songkick is top notch for discovering the great and the good when it comes to gigs, yes, every night of the year – and it handily lists how and where to buy tickets from. And then there’s the emerging Lamppost; a cool and comprehensive app, it’s almost as good as a great night out and could certainly deliver one, covering as it does only the most essential gigs, events and DJ nights.

However, it’s not just about the venue, of course, it’s about getting back to your accommodation afterwards – like it or not. And, with Über in London’s dog house, for better or worse, where to turn app-wise to ensure you get back to your city visit’s base, safe and sound? Well, perhaps the best taxi app going is Addison Lee’s; a more than decent, dependable and safe taxicab service that operates throughout the city and is trusted by many a London businessperson during the daytime.

Daytime and essential apps

Sure, though, if you’re visiting the Big Smoke for a few nights, you’re going to need more than just apps that guide you to top nights out; you’re going to need their equivalents for the day. In which case, you might want to upload toptable; its raison d’être being to supply the hungry with not just the choice of places to eat throughout the UK (and especially in the capital), but also up-and-coming establishments with supreme menus and irresistible vibes – and, maybe most important of all, those with discounted deals.

Additionally, you can’t beat the simply marvellous Gems of London. Why? Because this cheap-as-chips natty little app can transform famous sites, regular streets and even nondescript back alleys into how they appeared centuries ago; effectively, it’s all about putting the city into historical context, in a wonderfully engaging, accessible way.

And, of course, there’s the apps that are simply essential for your trip. For instance, you’re going to need a dependable, high-quality London hotels app; one, if you don’t mind us saying, rather like our own. For, The Montcalm app enables you to book, edit and cancel a room reservation at any of our hotels wherever you may be – and get access to terrific deals too. Meanwhile, there’s getting about – the ubiquitous Citymapper is your saviour here. Once installed, it opens you up to a cornucopia of maps of London’s public transport network (Tube, bus and so on) and, brilliantly, enables you to compare fare prices according to your preferred travel option. Essential, indeed!

We all know how difficult it can be to get by when in another foreign country. With so many languages out there it’s often difficult to fully integrate into another country. That’s why apps are a great way to help us take in a new culture. With smart technology almost being an extension of our physical selves it’s not surprising that apps are beginning to help us communicate, to organise and shape a better world. There are plenty out there to choose from and finding the best ones for your trip could be crucial to a smooth running culture soak. It may be that you’re only away for a few days and need to find a few great things to do in quick succession, it could be that you’re travelling plans are extremely complicated and you need to be on point with timings and tickets, or it could be that you need to make last minute accommodation amendments. Whatever it is, this list of apps will help you to fully appreciate your stay abroad.

Travel List

For that super savvy traveller who wants to keep on top of the packing, Travel List is the go to app for just that, making lists for travel. Whether it’s a super hefty bag you’re packing for a long haul trip or you need to keep your VISA papers in order, this app will help you to keep everything organised. It will allow you to set last minute reminders and even give you a list of the stop overs on your journey, keeping you organised and safe in the knowledge that the journey will go smoothly and you’ve not missed a thing, not even your toothbrush, which tends to be the main item to usually get stranded on a holiday!

Tile

Tile is an app for the forgetful and clumsy. This app comes with up to eight tiles. These tiles you can stick onto any valuable object or well used object you own and the app will be able to track it, wherever you are. If you’ve had a hectic flight boarding and you can’t find your phone, Tile swill allow you to find out if you left it at home, in the airport or it’s in the baggage compartment. If you’re looking for an app to again help with that peace of mind, this time for valuables when travelling then Tile is the go to app for the forgetful jet setter.

Say Hi Translate

Working in much the same way as Google Translate, Say Hi Translate brings the foreign language understanding tool to a whole new level. By translating your own words from country to country, the Say Hi Translate App allows you to communicate with other cultures. What’s more, there’s no fiddly typing, this app merely allows you to speak into your smart device for the words to be translated back to you. No more fiddly typing, this app is quick and easy to use and will have you understanding other languages in seconds.

Viber

Viber is another great communication tool, allowing you to call and text from anywhere in the world, even if your phone account doesn’t allow it. Using WIFI, you can communicate with both other viber users and normal phones, using the Viber Out feature. This app is helpful in emergency situations or if you’re lost, allowing you to stay in touch and spend a fraction of the money. Think of Viber as an international version of WhatsApp or Messenger, allowing you to contact all of your contacts in no time at all!

Amount

Ever been short changed at the Exchange desk? Amount gives you the opportunity to monitor exchange rates, which shift as quickly as sand in wind, and allows you to keep track of what the best deals are and the best time to exchange your money. The app is not only helpful with currency converting, but also helps you to keep track of petrol consumption, cooking and clothing sizes in different countries, all designed within an easy to use interface and containing 700 varieties of unit with 30 different categories.

Entrain

Are you prone to a bout of jetlag when jumping through time zones? If so, Entrain will be just the app you need to get a good night’s sleep. The app calculates the best ways for you to adjust to a new place’s time zones, giving mathematically proven light schedules which will help you keep on top of your sleep and have you adjusting in no time at all. The app is so clever that it records your lighting history and helps you to adjust your light levels. Light is the main reason we don’t sleep, instinctively we are prone to wake when the sun rises, making it difficult if between time zones there’s only two hours of darkness! The app tells us when to let more light in and when to shut it out, keeping our sleep on schedule for that time zone.

Foodspotting

For the international foodie, Foodspotting is the perfect app for you to really judge a restaurant menu. Using the app you can find out from locals whether the food you’re eating is on point and as good as the menu and waiters say it is. You can find a range of restaurants wherever you are which have been reviewed and had the food photographed so you know exactly what to expect and exactly what to avoid!

Montcalm booking app

The Montcalm booking app is the best app for visiting London specifically on a four star trip. As one of the best London hotel booking apps out there you’ll be introduced to Montcalm’s range of rooms, amenities and special offers, changing with the seasons. What’s more, Montcalm will allow you to keep your room bookings tailored, giving you the chance to amend them on the go if your sleeping arrangements change.

London is a city with an incredibly rapid pace. Caught in rush hour, you can be whisked through the London capital without seeing a thing, the busy hustle and bustle meaning you don’t catch anything as you try to traverse the narrow streets. That’s the problem with London, if you don’t plan, you’ll end up seeing none of the city whilst you take your trip. That’s why if you are lucky enough to own a smart phone, it’d be a wise choice to invest in some of the countless handy travel apps available online. These apps will organise, suggest and predict the timing of your journeys and will help you during your trip to London. Whoever you’re travelling with, it’s a good idea to understand where and what exactly you’ll be doing during your trip. After all, in London, a well planned break is a happy break, and apps can do much of the leg work for you.

Citymapper

This public transit app is one of the most popular and efficient out there. Using data collated for your given city (in this case London) it finds your quickest route from point A to point B on your preferred method of transport. One of the most innovative dimensions to the Citymapper app is that the data is often user generated. The more journeys taken by users on the app, the more efficient it becomes as the data is collated from the records of these journeys and the routes taken. For London visitors to note, the app originated in London due to it being “the world’s most historic and iconic public transport city”, making it the ideal birth place for such a quick and easy to use app.

Santander Cycles

Finding it’s birth in the ex-mayor Boris Johnson’s policy of upping the cycling trend in the city, Santander Cycles or “Boris Bikes” are the most recent addition to the public transport in the city. These bikes, used as easily as the underground or the tube can be rented for half an hour or more and have led to a surge in cycling in the city to reverse the huge carbon footprint left by the city. The Santander app makes it easier to take out a bike from one of the countless docking stations around the city, even telling you where your nearest one is.

National Trust

The National Trust is a British Charity who work to keep historic places and areas of outstanding natural beauty safe, preserving them as grounds for the public to view and explore. The app therefore, has come a long way since the charities 1895 origins, and gives locals a great way to explore and find great days out at over 580 National Trust sites. On top of this the app even guides you through the gardens, parks and sites, giving you virtual tours and relevant information on travel, parking and incredible experiences. If visiting the UK, a National Trust Park simply must be on your agenda, and the National Trust app makes it that much easier to see the beauty of the British countryside.

Hotel booking apps

Hotel booking apps such as the Montcalm Hotel App are great ways to make your hotel booking a little bit easier. Using the app, you can find out about your specific hotels amenities and facilities, making sure that you are making the right choice for your trip. If you are travelling with children, make sure the hotel you’re looking to stay at caters for children by downloading the app and exploring what is being offered. What’s more, using hotel apps means that you’ll have access to quick and easy room booking and amending services, allowing you to edit your booking or cancel it with minimal stress. The efficiency of apps in general make it a perfect application for hotel booking services, ensuring that you have first hand access to some of the best deals the hotel has to offer.

YPlan

YPlan is an app which allows you to find the best events coming up in your area, tailored around your interests. This includes last minute event booking, direct through the app as well as discounts and special offers. If you’re stuck for something to do in the city, then download YPlan and discover your next unforgettable memory. If that’s not enough, YPlan was named the fastest growing tech company in the UK back in 2015, an example of just how popular it has become. Whether it’s a music concert or the hottest theatre ticket, YPlan gives you access to the entertainment capital of the world right at your fingertips.

Taxi Apps

Whether it’s Uber or Kabbee, taxi apps are popping up left right and centre. With these apps you must exchange no money by hand, simply decide where you want to go and when you want the taxi and the world is your oyster. With a wide range of choices in terms of what sort of transport you would like, you’ll even be shown the amount you’ll pay before you join. With Uber Pool, you’ll get discounts for sharing the taxi with other users going in a similar direction to you, whilst Uber Elite allows you to pay that little bit extra for a luxury and efficient journey. It’s not only in London where you can find Uber taxis, the company has spread throughout many of the major cities in the world, simplifying and economising travel for millions of people since its birth in San Francisco in 2009.

Quidco

Looking for a shopping spree in London? Whether in Oxford Circus or Brick Lane, the Quidco service allows members to find cashback and special offers in selected products during their shopping. There are many high street brands who are using the app to promote their products, including Tesco’s Morrisons and Waitrose, giving users premium discounts and enhanced customer service depending on their membership package. Whether you’re looking for a bite to eat or a souvenir for a loved one back home, the Quidco app gives you the chance to find the best high street deals possible.

Quidco is a cashback website based in the UK, with offices in Sheffield and London. The site takes the commission (termed “cashback”) usually paid by retailers to third-party referrers and passes it on to Quidco members.

There are two tiers of membership: Basic and Premium members. The service is free for Basic members. Premium members have their first £5 cashback retained to qualify for enhanced levels of customer service and a range of offers from faster paying retailers.[2]

As well as online cashback offers, Quidco provides its members with a range of deals that can be redeemed when shopping on the highstreet. Members just add their 16-digit card numbers from debit and credit cards to register, then shop as normal to receive cashback rates on in-store purchases.

In November 2012, Quidco became the first UK company to offer cashback on grocery shopping. Quidco ClickSnap offers shoppers a wide range of supermarket cashback deals on household items – both online and in-store – in a variety of top UK retailers, including Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Morrisons and Waitrose.

Visiting London can feel daunting at times. The network of rail and underground services stretches through and beyond the city like a labyrinthine web of underground lines and confusing directions. On top of this, visitors to the city can be misled on just how far apart landmarks really are; despite the city centre being relatively small and walkable, getting from one to the other by foot can take an incredibly long time and with the added blustery weather and frequent rainfall, this can sometimes be the exact opposite of how you’d want to spend your time visiting the city. That’s why it’s always a good idea to download travel apps which will help you traverse the city, helping you to avoid the hassle and faff often associated with the city. With London Hotel Booking Apps making staying in the city easier, it’s time that inner city travel got the same treatment. Below you can find just some of the apps which are guaranteed to make your trip just that little bit easier.

Tube Map and Tube Map Live

The Tube Map Live app is great for those looking to keep up to date with any delays and cancellations to tube journeys. If you’re looking at a trip that has a connection which has been cancelled, leaving you with a tiresome replacement bus service, then check out the Tube Map Live app which will give you the chance to pre-empt these delays and find alternative routes for your journey.

Citymapper

Citymapper is one of the most popular transport apps and eve has its roots in London itself since the city is “the world’s most historic and iconic public transport city”. The app has millions of users worldwide and this is not surprising when you consider how clever, quick and simple the travel route finder is to use. Simply type in where you’re wanting to go and then let the app do the rest of the work. Using the app, you can find a wide range of routes which are tailored around the way you want to travel and is the result of years of data recording from its users, helping to compile a database of the most efficient routes in the city.

Tube Tracker

Waited way too long for your underground service? Open the tube tracker service to find the most succinct platform, allowing you to navigate everything from departure boards to disruptions on the line. With this type of knowledge at your fingertips, there’s no way you’ll miss your hotel reservation and the Tube Tracker app gives you so much more bang for your buck than other train apps. With an in-built journey planner system, your payment information for oyster and train tickets and even a compass, there’s no way you’ll be unprepared for your tube journey ever again. With features for 3D devices and Apple watches, this app is continuously adapting to your needs as a tired tube traveller.

Tube Exits

This app is perfect for those in a hurry in the UK capital. What is so nifty about the Tube Exit app is that when you type in your journey from station to station, it tells you exactly which carriage you should get in to ensure a rapid exit, finding the tube carriage which is closest to the exit of your destination. This app is handy for those who are less physically able as well as those who are in a rush. The app has been nominated by the CarPhone Warehouse’s Appy awards for the “2011 best timesaver app” whilst having been feature don various TV shows and newspapers as one of the handiest apps out there. Other features include a journey option calculator, an alternative journey and reverse option as well as viewing access for offline.

If you’re searching for the perfect accommodation for your your trip away from home – either for work or a short-break – you’re probably well aware that any hotel worth its salt should be offering you and other potential guests packages to reduce the cost of the booking and so make the entire trip cheaper. What hotel wouldn’t offer such incentives?

The truth is that hotel visitors nowadays are very picky when they make reservations – and that’s because they can afford to be. Today’s travel marketplace is highly competitive and pretty crowded, with so many hotels bumping shoulders with each other as they fight over all the travellers out there looking to book a room at the accommodation they feel suits them and their short-break away (or business trip) better than any other.

The app is the answer

Now, obviously, there are many and various reasons why someone books with a hotel (location, recommendation, amenities, aesthetic appeal and so on), therefore favourable, cost-saving packages offered by a savvy, competitive hotel can be a clinching factor. And, should you be planning to visit London sometime soon and in the mood for a stay somewhere guaranteed to deliver luxurious rooms and high-quality service, resulting in ideal contemporary comfort, then you may well want to consider booking with one of Central London’s six Montcalm luxury hotels. Not least because each of them offer highly advantageous packages for every guest who reserves a room with them directly, either through their websites or their downloadable app – The Montcalm App.

Indeed, this hotel booking app by Montcalm is one of the most comprehensive and, quite frankly, one of the best you’ll come across. Giving guests-to-be thorough details (and imagery) of each of the Montcalm properties’ different rooms, as well as their unique dining options and myriad other amenities, in addition to maps of their locations and the opportunity to make bookings and then, afterwards, view, edit and even – if absolutely necessary – cancel their reservations, it’s a full-service information and booking solution at their fingertips.

Pick and choose

However, that’s far from all. Thanks to its detailed explanations of the different packages available at each of the six hotels, it puts the power in the hands of the guest – it’s them who can pick and choose from the very best deals at any of the Montcalm properties (whether it be the flagship Montcalm hotel at Marble Arch or the modern, dynamic M By Montcalm in Shoreditch).

At the mere scrolling of a page and selecting of icons then, users of this London hotel booking app can familiarise themselves with and choose between offers like the Romantic Stay package (comprising special touches like a bottle of wine on arrival and a booked room topped off with chocolates and flowers waiting for them as you walk through the door) and the Family Togetherness package (featuring in-room movies and surprise kid-friendly gifts handed out on arrival). Quite simply, these packages – and many more – have never been more accessible thanks to this marvellous app.

The Montcalm App’s available now, completely free, from the iOS and Google App Stores.

Like it or not, there’s no escaping it – we live in the digital age. And one of the surest signs of this is that those of us who own and use smartphones daily can browse, buy, book and communicate about products, services, offers and deals from all manner of businesses and organisations. One example of which is the capacity to use our ultra-modern mobiles to reserve rooms at hotels wherever they may be in the world – and, indeed, wherever in the world we may be when we want to make the booking.

This is, of course, because our smartphone devices are becoming ever smarter in how they can connect to hotels online and because downloadable apps, which can be used to fulfil a variety of services via a handheld device, are fast becoming smarter and smarter. Indeed, leading the pack in this drive for improved service from hotels is The Montcalm App. Why? Because this downloadable digital offering from the London-based Montcalm Hotel Group is a luxury hotel app with a difference.

Easy and thorough bookings

The Montcalm accommodation group comprises properties spread right across the centre of the UK capital – ranging from Marble Arch in the west to Shoreditch in the east – each of which offers a unique mixture of elegance, via its stylish exteriors and interiors, and modern comfort, thanks to its rooms appointed with all the latest fixtures today’s weary travellers desire and demand.

And matching each hotel’s unflagging commitment to delivering unparalleled service to its guests, The Montcalm App is a full-service solution at your fingertips for reserving a room in each of the properties. How so? Well, not only does our app enable you to seek out details and imagery on every room available (as well as each hotel’s dining and other amenities and features) and then book the room of your choice, it also enables you to view and edit your booking after you’ve made it – and even, if you desire or need to, cancel the booking. We don’t use the term ‘full-service solution’ here lightly; using our app to reserve one of our rooms is as reliable, secure and flexible a process as making a booking via our website or by phone.

Further services

Additionally, via the app, guests-to-be can discover and familiarise themselves with the current packages each of the Montcalm hotels are running. Among the very best hotel deals in London, these offers give visitors a fantastic opportunity to save money on their bookings and often tailor their stay according to their trip’s inspiration – whether it’s a romantic getaway for two, a family celebration, a work-based trip or a seasonal-themed short-break.

Moreover, the Montcalm App includes, in addition to the amenities of each hotel, a selection of the features and attractions in its immediate area. This then further helps guests, as they’re readying themselves to make a reservation, to decide on which of the Montcalm properties will best suit them and their stay in the UK capital.

So, why not download The Montcalm App today? It’s completely free available from the iOS and Google App stores.
