“Perfect budget hotel minutes away from Camden fun”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

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 lumpy but overall if you just need a cheap clean bed for the night this is a great choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the pub although none are very far away.

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 reception were friendly, and there were a lot of interesting tourists leaflets about the city and surroundings. They can also book tours for the guests. I was lucky to get a double room for a single person. A flat tv, a water cooker with complimentary teabags and coffee in the room. The mattress and the pillows were just good foe me, not too hard nor too soft!
Breakfast is the at the 'coffee lookout lounge' next to the reception hall. Enough time for breakfast, from 7:00 to 10:00 am. Only two choices, Continental or English, simple but good. Personally I prefer English.
It only takes 10 to 15 minutes to reach the Stables Market, Camden Lock Market, Camden Lock Village. They are very colorful and a lot to see, to buy, to eat and to enjoy!
Only one blemish, there is bar nearby just opposite the hotel. It plays music loudly at night around 9 o,clock until 1 o'clock in the morning during the weekend. And you have people standing outside the bar, talking, smoking. Make quite a noise!. I don't know if it happens every night too! If you want a quite sleep, better close the windows! Anyway it is a lovely nice hotel.

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 key and Went to our room somewhere on level 3. IT was a tight, dark corridor and looked more like a hostel. The room itself was ok, but with shabby old windows and even more shabby curtains. Didnt see much because of the lack of daylight, had to turn on the light in the room. Bathroom was clean but without a tub. The shower cabin was kinda big but its either damn hot or too cold water. IT was impossible to adjust a proper temperature. The lack of a hair dryer is terrible, I did read in other reviews that u can get one when u ask the staff. But I dont want to walk around for a dryer, I wanna have it right where it should be. The bathroom "door" is hilarious. All in all I would expect better for the money u have to pay and I prefered spending the night at the airport instead of coming back.
