An amazing find, great price and ideal location. We stayed in a twin room- which wasn't huge, but was really nicely turned out, clean and modern with a great shower in the en-suite. Overlooked the pub next door- but didn't find noise a problem despite it being a Saturday night. Great to be able to hop of the tube or... More

This hotel may not be the most fancy place in London, but for the price it's great. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and it is in a quiet area just minutes away from Camden nightlife and markets...breakfast is also great and it's close to two tube stations. Would definitely recommend .

Chose the location as I was at the Roundhouse for a gig, hotel was fine, a little shabby but clean and staff very friendly. Only complaint was that there is a little noise that comes from the pub next door, but other than that the stay was fine

We stayed at the Camden Lock Hotel for one night. We found it really clean, spacious enough with a really nice en suite. Price was excellent, and the location was good for what we wanted to do. The beds were really comfortable. We paid to stay for breakfast and it was worth doing

Cozy little hotel located 1 minute away from the Tube. Nice breakfast, unfortunately just 2 choices which can be a problem if you stay several days. Great personnel. The room is... what you expect in london, pretty small but cozy. You have the camden market pretty close and another few places to eat and even a club nearby.

This is a budget hotel but better than a backpackers hostel. Located just north of Camden Market opposite Chalk Farm underground station on Northern line. (If your visiting London Camden Market is worth a trip on the tube for arts and crafts and different to main West End shopping) Helpful staff. Expect some noise from the pub opposite. Bed was...

I had just spent 3 days in London last weekend, staying in the Camden Lock hotel in Camden Town for the first time. The hotel is situated at the main road, Chalk Farm Road. The Chalk Farm station is only about 200 meters away. From there you can take the tube to London center in 20 minutes! People at the... More

We had booked only one night and choose this because of its good location and the fact that it is probably the cheapest hotel in the area. The building looks terrible on the outside, pretty wasted but so do many other hotels and should not be an indicator for the rest. The welcome was nice and friendly, we received our... More

I stayed one night and had a generally positive experience. The hotel does not look very enticing from outside and it's not that attractive inside but I understand from other posts that it is undergoing a programme of improvement. The welcome was friendly and efficient. The room was clean, big enough for me but quite sparse. It would have been... More
