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

I stayed 2 nights in a single room for some meetings in Camden. The reception area in rather weird, the same goes for the stairs to the second floor, where I stayed. But don't let this fool you. The room is spotless, the bed is great, the linen is clean and the bathroom is nice and inviting. It is a... More

A basic and reasonable price B&B (via online agent) a stone’s throw from the Roundhouse and Chalk Farm Tube (use lift or 53 steps). Three storeys, we were on second floor, room overlooking the main road, guess you have the noisy road or not a very nice view.

We loved our stay here so much we have already pre booked our next stay. We were in room 102 which was on the first floor and was clearly very recently refurbished in a minimal, modern, functional manner which made excellent use of the available space. Lovely bathroom and some toiletries. The ladies on the front desk couldn't have been... More

Stayed last weekend, the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and decent. probably the best thing about this hotel is the location, just far enough away from the bustle to breathe and relax.

Stayed here for one night and we was very happy with the service and how clean our room was. I'd certainly stay again ,the noise wasn't as bad as I was expecting and it's in a perfect location for tube and camden nightlife .

Anyone who complains about this hotel clearly has no experience in saying in London's alternative budget options. For £57 for a single -try to find another central, clean, safe base with en-suite! This place is clean, simple, very safe and cared for. Yes, it is run on a budget- that is reflected in the price, but based on my stay... More

Hotel a little dated but clean and freshly decorated, room was small but perfectly adequate for a one night stay. As noted by others traffic noise is a problem that said I would be happy to stay again.
