“Shopping extravaganza, close to everything.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

we have been to london a number of times in the past few years and I have to say this has been our favorite hotel? My daughter and I loved the markets directly behind the Hotel. we spent a great day wondering around the vast market stalls. Camden Town train station a short walk away. Restaurants/cafes everywhere? Our room was very comfortable and dead quiet at night. we thought it was great value to. the staff were just so friendly and helpful. from now on we know where we are going to stay when in London.

This is your usual holiday inn format hotel. However unlike the others it has gone under a major revamp in the main lobby and downstairs bar area. It's looking a lot more modern than it used to do and is looking clean and sharpe. However what makes this hotel a favourite of mine is the staff. They treat you like one of the family and even remember you when you come back months later. If only all hotels had staff like this. Nothing is too much of a problem.

I have now stayed at this hotel a number of times over the past 15 years or so. I have always liked the bright and spacious (for London) rooms. Sometimes the area around has been a bit noisy but I find the local area interesting and it is well connected by public transport to the rest of London.
My most recent stay was exceptionally good in many ways. I really get the sense that this is a well managed hotel and there are other hotels at which I have stayed which would benefit from sending their staff to this hotel for training! The facelift given to the lobby and mezzanine areas is great. Most of all, all the staff were friendly and efficient. A special mention of Marta whose friendliness I have appreciated on many visits.I also appreciated the visit from the customer services manager welcoming me to the hotel as a PC member.
This visit was during a cool wet spell so outside noise was minimal. Breakfast options and the buffet layout have been improved significantly. Came away with a very positive feeling about my stay.

Room Tip: Internal rooms are quieter but those over the lock have great views.

Great location!! Good for all facilities and entertainment we wanted to visit. Wouldn't eat at the hotel given the number of eating establishments in the area. Went to a local American Diner for Breakfast on Sunday which was brilliant.

Noise from nightclub late on Saturday night was a little disturbing, even when we were on the 5th floor in a Penthouse Suite, so if you are a light sleeper then may not be recommended.

Overall very good and staff very attentive and responsive.

Stayed for 1 night Dec (502) reception staff polite and helpful. The room was spacious spotlessly clean . The reception area is very comfortable, giving a relaxed feeling straight away. We were surprised how quite the room was considering it was so close to local bars. Good nights sleep, would have liked a top sheet but I'm sure if we had asked it would have been provided. Breakfast was lovely but the eggs on buffet table were a little underdone, a member of staff heard us discussing this and immediately supplied perfect eggs. The team at breakfast were a credit to the Hotel. Hope to return in the future.

We stayed on October 2013 and we had a very nice stay. Location is perfect, so close to Camden tube station, the hotel is nice, clean and staff firendly and helpful. We had a double bed room (family room): bed are absolutely comfortable and there is also a pillow selection. Bathroom was clean, with bathtub but really too small. in the room there is a complimentary coffee facilities but I would have appreciated a mini-bar, which was not available.
The breakfast is really great: it's served in a very nice and modern lounge and there is a large selection of food and beverage and everything was absolutely delicious.
Moreover in the surroundings of the hotel there is a wide choice of nice restaurants and bar
I would certainly recommend this hotel as a good alternative to more expensive hotels in the London city center, which often don't offer such a good accomodation and service. We had a very nice stay and I would recommend this hotel to families and young peoples as well.
