“Great location”
Reviewed 4 October 2009

Excellent location in Camden, overlooking the lock and market and 5 mins from tube. Stayed in room 213. Immediate view is of office building, but when you open doors of room, you can see good view of lock and market if you look to your left. When arrived in room, TV didn't work and there were no shampoo or conditioner in bathroom, but staff were very apologetic and it was all sorted out in less then 5 minutes. Breakfast was £9.95 each if you paid for it when checking in (otherwise £12.95 on the day) and was good value as good selection and eat as much as wanted. Went into hotel to book and was offered standard rate, when pressed they then offered the advance booking rate, but found a cheaper rate online with hotels.com.

Four 18 year old girls traveling alone for the first time. Booked this hotel through Hotwire for seven nights. We got two nice rooms with two double beds in each. Though our windows faced a brick wall, this meant that we heard no outside noise at night, which was perfect. Tried the restaurant one night, and they had really good food. And the staff were really nice and helpful.

We spent 8 nights at this hotel and overall had a very pleasant experience. The neighborhood was lively and an interesting place to shop. Hotel is close to Camden Lock tube station. Only have 1 major negative to report: DO NOT ALLOW THE HOTEL TO CALL YOU A TAXI. Twice we arranged for taxi service through the front desk. Each time we believe we were overcharged. For example return charge to Paddington Station was 5 pounds more than inbound trip. Note that taxis provided by hotel were not typical black London taxis. They were guys in minivans who had dubious taxi meters. Otherwise experience was pretty good. Would recommend this hotel.

The Hotel was fine, very friendly staff and good amenties. The location was great, just on Camden Lock and the Markets, which is brilliant for our 14 year old daughter. Lots of restaurants to chose from. The Mango Room near the Camden Town tube station is fabulous. Great food.

Only a short walk to Primrose Hill which has magnificent views across the city.

All in all we had a great time.

Stayed here on business. Location not ideal, but hotel generally pretty good - rooms nice and large by London standards, although furniture a bit cheap. Service at check-in a little brusque but nevertheless efficient. Did not try breakfast. Ironing board a bit crappy. Otherwise not bad - just remember that the location means it may be a bit noisy. Plenty of good restaurants etc. nearby, although area may not be to the taste of some business travellers.

We spent 5 nights here in two separate rooms. For London, I thought the rooms were quite spacious and were very clean. We had an issue with the A/C that took a couple of calls to maintenance to get resolved, but it was eventually fixed. Main objection regarding the hotel was it's location, and the noise level. We were put into two rooms on the 2nd floor overlooking Jamestown road, which by itself was not a busy or noisy road, but there is a bar across the street on the corner which has a very loud outdoor clientelle until well after 1 am on Friday and Saturday nights. I observed in advance the possible problem when we checked in, and was told that it never a problem, which in fact it was, so I think they were just wanting us to take the room knowing we probably wouldn't want to uproot and switch once we had settled in.

The location is right next to Camden road and Camden Market, which is frequented by seemingly no one other than tattooed and body pierced individuals. Most of the storefronts along the street are tattoo parlors or t-shirt shops, or both. We never really felt unsafe, but just know this before you go and be prepared for a little bit of culture shock if you are not used to tattoos, multi-colored hair, and piercings all over the face.

Ideal for exploring the Camden Town area, Regents Park / Zoo, Primrose Hill, etc, and still only 15 minutes from Leicester Square on the Northern Line, this is a well-located hotel.

I booked via the Holiday Inn website and the photos there make the hotel look very contemporary and almost boutiquey. The hotel doesn't quite live-up to those images - it is clean, modern, functional and pretty-much provides everything that you could need from a hotel at this price range, but it wasn't quite as funky as I had expected for this location and there was far too much cheap 'wood' veneer. The room was of an okay size, but the bathroom felt tiny. It had a multi-channel tv, tea/coffee and biscuits, tissues, facecloths, iron, minibar, safe and all other amenities - except complimentary toiletries (except for wall-mounted squeezy containers). My room faced onto the street and, whilst you could make-out some slight noise from nearby bars, it really wasn't intrusive and didn't continue late into the night (despite being a Friday).

Breakfast was comprehensive and the service was very attentive throughout my stay.

Overall, this is a modern mid-range brand hotel - not outstanding quality and not spacious, but spotlessly clean, with good service and comfortable. I'd go again.
