This is a budget hotel. Very well located for tube and. Camden markets. Rooms are clean. Street noise but what can you expect. Toilet / Shower was small. Breakfast for a fiver is good value for money. If your looking for a cheap hotel just to crash out in then this will do.

2 mins from Chalk Farm tube, ten minutes walk from Camden Market and lots of nightlife. For us it was a secure place to rest our heads, nice fluffy towels, could of been a bit noisy from the bar across the road but we were pretty drunk and tired by the time we got back (after trying numerous bars in...

I stayed in a single room at the Camden Lock while visiting a music festival in the area. The room was exactly what I paid for. Clean with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was also included which was very good. The hotel is directly opposite a tube station and is in walking distance to eating places and pubs. The only... More

The people running this 'budget' hotel have got it right. For the price paid (£89 for a twin) the room was squeaky clean, small but comfortable beds with 2 pillows, a window which opened properly and a freshly refurbished shower room. All the touches you would expect in a more expensive establishment were provided; toiletries, hot drinks tray, hairdryer, free... More

I arrived several hours before check-in, quite jet-lagged and hungry. The friendly front desk hostess made a call and requested my room be readied early, kept my bags, and directed me down the hall to a delicious coffee and breakfast. The room was ready less than an hour later, and it was delightful -- clean, airy, and comfortable. There was... More

I booked two stays there and both were fantastic. Very friendly staff, helpful to carry heavy luggage up through the stairs and to give you advice and suggestions. Clean room and bathroom, ideal location at the heart of Camden to do some shopping and long walks--the Abbey Road Studios is less than 1-hour walk away! Just across the street from... More
