Historical Traveller Reviews of Holiday Inn Camden Lock Hotel
OK Hotel, Dodgy Areafrom A TripAdvisor Member
However, would agree with other reviews that the area seems a bit dodgy. Walked down Camden High Street about 8pm and there seemed to be quite a few dodgy looking characters hanging around (drugs dealers ?) which made us feel a bit apprehensive. Bizarrely, when we walked back around midnight, they'd all disappeared and it seemed a lot safer.
All in all, would only stay here again if I needed to be in Camden.
Nice hotel, Not so nice neighbourhoudfrom kinkybinky
The room is clean and it's size was comfortable. The staff was very friendly.
The only major drawback is the location of the hotel. The hotel is located in the Camden Lock area. During the night you can feel quite uncomfortable when walking on the streets in this area. So i wouldn't recommend this hotel to parents with kids.
But if you aren't scared easily and likes to stay in an alternative neighbourhood this hotel offers a good value for you money ( Paid around £85 a night)
Great Hotel / Bad Areafrom Matrixdestroyer
So if you dont mind the area its a great hotel.
Quite nice, but noisy.from retep68
Worst thing was the noise. As it's on Camden Lock you get a lot of noise from bars (espeically in summer - beer gardens!). This isn't so bad as it pretty much stops come 11pm - midnight. However, I was there for four nights and was woken every night by other guests returning from nights out - times ranged between 2am and 5am. The hotel management seem to be aware of this as every night there was a note on the TV for all guests, asking to show a bit of consideration for other guests if returning late. Sadly the people on my floor didn't take this request on-board.
Not the hotels fault really, but I won't be staying there again.
High quality, very clean and comfortablefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The breakfast is somewhat dissapointing - it is a full English buffet but the standard is pretty poor and yet expensive so we do not eat breakfast here. However you are in the heart of Camden so there are plenty of nearby places to eat.
This hotel is not cheap and you have to book early to get the best rate of around £85 a night. However the standard of the hotel is excellent and the staff and services are of very high quality. Finding a good hotel in London is very very difficult and that is why we always return to Camden Lock Holiday Inn whenever we can. If you can get a good rate book without hesitation!
Loved it.from Frozenrose
We arrived in London to a nightmare of a hotel situation. Our first hotel booked through hotels.ca was terrible. The first room was in the basement with a view of garbage through the tiny windows near the ceiling. The front desk was lovely though and after requesting a room change were ushered through tiny stairwells to another room. Not fantastic but acceptable given what we were paying. Then I tried to shower. There was no water. Again the staff was lovely and ushered me to a staff "room" to shower, while the plumber attempted to resolve our water issues. My eight year old son was endearing himself to the handyman with offers of assistance while my husband tried to catch a quick nap. I got wet in the shower and the water disappeared.
At this point the boys were being entertained by the staff in the lobby and my husband and I went down to meet them. The staff really was terrific by the way and very embarrassed. We let them know we were going to head out for the day and give them time to resolve their issues.
After an exhausting day and suffering from jet lag I was desperate for a bed and heading back to the hotel in fear to be honest. We were met my the manager who was a delight and he had a car waiting to take us to Holiday Inn. We stayed for three nights free of charge!
WHAT a delightful suprise for us. They felt terribly that our first family vacation had started like this.
The staff at Holiday Inn were fabulous. Extremely helpful, and given we were freebees I was certainly not expecting the above and beyond treatment we received. Lorenzo was especially wonderful and allowed us to bring pots of tea and coffee from the kitchen to our room.
The hotel was exceptionally clean, and modern. The breakfast was more than ample to fill our bellies and again...the staff allowed us to take some extra bagels and fruit for our daily adventures with the children. My son is a fan of Lorenzo's forever for introducing him and supplying him with monstrous amounts of nutella.
The staff made a weary, disappointed family very very happy.
Now...the hotel is a little out of the way but nothing a short tube ride didn't take care of. The neighbourhood was rather creepy after dark and I learned what "skunk" was as did my son as we looked for something to eat.
It had a great little chinese food place around the corner though with an internet cafe which was helpful to let our family know we had relocated.
I would most definately stay there again. I can not say enough about how fabulous the staff was.
Very comfortable and convenientfrom njtraveler4444
Peacefully Vibrant - A+++from RoadLite
Really Cool Hotelfrom VesperGirl
As for the room - I had an excutive room on the very top floor with a massive patio. Room was always cleaned and the bath is well stocked and shower is really good. The hotel bar is good too.
I did not eat at the hotel at all, the markets next door have great food stalls[CHEAP] and there is a Starbucks about 30 seconds away from the hotel. There is a restaurant call Wagamama, great japanese food. Avoid Arizona Restuarant - bland and small portions of food.
Also, yes, there is a 'rock' crowd sometimes, but hardly anyone famous - just local bands/individuals looking to make it big.
I would definitely go back to this hotel. [BOOK IN ADVANCE]
Convenient for West End and City but cheaperfrom woodgnome
Top Local Tips for London
Kettners, Covent Garden Kettners is a classy cosy restaurant right in the middle of Theatreland between Soho and Covent Garden. Beautiful building, it's on three floors with a chapagne bar, piano bar and retaurant on the ground floor, and private dining rooms on the upper floors. Excellent food and service, but the biggest surprise will be the bill. Kettners is owned by the owners of Pizza express and the excellent Pizzas, Burgers and basic pasta dishes all come in at less than £10. You can get more sophisticated food if required, but there's something about eating a perfect burger or pizza in these classy surroundings which makes the whole experience unmissable.
If you like to walk in London... Walkit.com is an amazingly useful resource if you plan on doing any walking in London - it generates walking maps, estimated walking times, sights along the way, and, if you're green, lets you know how much carbon emission you are avoiding by making your walk
rules for surviving in london from a londoner! get prepayed ickets at yellow bus stops so you don't hold up traffic, most bus drivers will not wait for you. If you don't walk fast people will run you down, it's fast paced so keep up. On escalators, stand right, walk left, people will be really annoyed and push if you don't! I've been living there for years, london is safe but take caution like in any new city. Watch out for pick pockets. Take a bus tour, it's the best way to see london, get a ticket from Victoria station and other big ones. Also take a canal tour, they are so nice. Get off at paddington station and walk to little Venice, there you find boats that take you on the canal trip up to Camden town. Mini cabs are far cheaper than black cabs! you must call one or go to a mini cab office located all over town to get one, NEVER go with randoms on the street who claim they are cabbies. a good company is Addison Lee. eat at Yauatcha (dim sum) on Berick st. and Balans on Old Compton both in Soho, best food!!!
