“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Stayed here for one night in April for attending a gig in Camden Underworld. Great location for the venue - only 5 mins walk and only 5 mins from Camden tube station. Hotel is located just off Camden hIgh street which is bustling all day and night,
Hotel seemed quite new. Room was spacious and very clean only thing I didn't like was the view - it looked out on to the back of the hotel.
Would definitely stay here again if back in Camden

Thank you for y our comment.

It sounds like you enjoyed one of our 'double doubles', facing inward for increased peace at night. Next time, should you come for more gigs, we could make sure you face the action? Just ask, and we'll be very happy to oblige. we've got something for everyone here ... and you haven't seen our brand new open lobby!

When is it you're coming back? See you again soon.

I visited Camden for a live band mini festival in camden stables market so I wanted a hotel that was close and could cater for my family who would accompany me to London and then go shopping.
From booking the room to checking out after our stay was a joy and a breeze, the Staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble, the Manager ( Ed ) is dedicated to his job and his customers are his utmost priority, The service and attention to detail are without fault .
The hotel itself is bright and clean and the lobby and restaurant are lovely, our room was very comfortable and, considering we were in the middle of camden, was very quiet, we all slept very well.
We had breakfast at the hotel which is a buffet style with everything you would expect from full English to continental and more, the kids asked for hot chocolate drinks which they didnt seem to drink so I asked what the problem was and they said it was too milky and not chocolate enough (kids!) , I asked one of the staff if she could put some more chocolate powder in the kids cups and she said she would make it herself and she knew just what the kids meant, she was right and within minutes they were drinking happily.
This hotel is a must if you visit Camden town and want it to be part of the experience, it is simply the best place in the area to base yourself and the price is very reasonable for what you get.
Highly Recomended .

Hey Peter & Family ... we couldn't wish for more! Thank you!! Brilliant.

We're just being ourselves, you know? Making it easy for you is what makes sense and it is just about being real; what we enjoy the most! And so, I also did enjoy our Twitter conversation prior your coming ... just to carry on at breakfast time. Thank you!

Timing coudn't have been more perfect as you were to enjoy our brand new surroundings, just newly opened. As for looking after kids, our breakfast girls are top of the pops! Monica did enjoy your note too ...

So, that's a big 'thank you' from us all! It is just very nice to keep in touch before, during and after ... so now, you know the address, right? ;-)

See you all again soon!

Excellent location, a bit noisy in Friday & Saturday night, but hey, it is Camden.
I stayed with 3 teenage girls (all aged 14) that could spend all day on the market, but we did manage to get other places.
I normally always use the tube, but Camden is very well connected with buses, so that is what we used this time around. No interchange for going to Primark, Madame Tussaud's etc.
The staff on the hotel is excellent, and the only minor think to dislike is the noise from the bars late Friday & Saturdays, but that really doesn't matter for me. It kind of got me thinking that I should go back with friends and go to the bars :-)

The hotel is right by the Regents Canal and in the heart of very funky Camden Lock where noise and fun and amazing shops and market stalls make for a very interesting visit. The hotel is newish. Reception staff were very good, welcoming and friendly. the room was adequate (with two double beds in it) - nice bathroom. Breakfast is on the mezzanine floor - excellent food choices and again, very friendly and helpful staff. Very welcoming of children.

Very close to London Zoo (why we stayed there)

Would return. Holiday Inn has a good product and they obviously take the time to train staff well

Thank you for capturing the vibrancy of the place so nicely. All true, but everyone needs to experience it first hand, at least once in a lifetime.

Did you walk to the Zoo along the Canal or did you take the boat for priority access? Spoilt for choice here ...

Thank you for your lively and sweet review, but also for your nice compliment! We do invest in training, coaching and try to stay as real as possible.

Come again soon ...

I stayed with my 6 year old daughter so that we could spend a weekend in London and this hotel is very well located for travel.

A short walk from Camden tube station puts you right in the heart of London within a few stops and there is also a really good bus network connecting the area.

On Sunday the famous Camden Market is a 30 second walk over the canal bridge that backs onto the hotel and there is a great mix of people, shops and restaurants in the area.

The hotel was exceptionally clean (even though there was building work being undertaken) and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

There is a Starbucks inside the lobby which is also very useful!

Would definitely stay here again and the walk along the canal to London Zoo and Regents park cannot be beaten.

Room Tip: If you can, get a room overlooking the canal. On a Saturday and Sunday they are bustling but there i...

It is nice to read that you made the most of it: our location, our brand new Starbucks, the walks along the canal and the rest of London. Well done!

Now, the good news is that work is over, and the team has created an amazing space that, despite still being astonished, we managed to make our own. Even better, YOU seem to have made your own! We're loving this ... so please tell us you're coming back with the rest of the family! You're well worth a few extra treats, for sure.

We look forward to that. Thank you VERY much!

Small hotel in Camden Town. Close to restaurants and street vendors. Busy area during the day and night. Close to metro. Hotel was clean and comfortable as was the room, no complaints. Front desk staff was friendly and professional.
