Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 379 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by enjoyable stay - as always. I stay in this hotel on a weekly basis for business use. The staff are extremely welcoming and professional at all times. Nothing is too much trouble and they always welcome you with a smile The food is to a good standard and so is the service. If you wish to venture out there are an abundance of eateries within walking distance of this hotel, along with some really good cocktail bars! I would definitely recommend this hotel and have done on many occasions to my friends and family We have booked many stays for leisure purposes and have never been disappointed. 15 November 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location with excellent service I stayed at Camden Holiday Inn for my business trip. I love the location and the service were excellent. 13 November 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Overpriced for non existent services We stayed at the Camden Lock hotel for 1 Saturday night. It had been a long term goal for us to afford a night at this well established Holiday Inn in a prime location. We finally got the opportunity to stay here but unfortunately we were disappointed. I would just like to point out firstly that the staff on the reception desk when we checked in that morning were very friendly and helpful. More importantly the lady was a trainee and all credit to her great service. The stay started to go downhill later that night. We were enjoying the sights and sounds of Camden so much so that we decided that due to the fact that there was a 24 hour snack bar at the hotel we chose to wait and eat when we got back. We arrived back at approximately 11.45pm and went straight to the bar for a drink and snack. The first thing we asked for was a lasagne which we were informed had run out. We then asked for other hot food to which the reply was nothing. During this conversation a lady was clearing things off the counter. We continued by asking what sandwiches they have. We were told that only 2 remained after the gentleman spent all of 2 minutes searching for things as he had no clue where anything was. After being issued with 2 almost expired stale sandwiches we asked for 2 bags of crisps which we knew were available as the lady moved a large selection of them from the counter into the back. Again the gentleman searched but it appeared that every bag had disappeared and there were none left at all!. A simple service which is clearly advertised at this level on a Saturday night is quite frankly very poor considering the cost of stay. The following morning after seeing the loyalty card advertising in the room I asked for my current stay on the loyalty card to which there was a simple no. I MUST book again in order to receive the loyalty points. 13 November 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staff very welcoming This hotel is a short walk from Camden town centre and very close to the market and tube stations. On arrival the staff were very polite and welcoming - it is the staff at this hotel which makes this hotel a place I would stay at again. We were touring London as a family during half term and we stayed in a very comfortable family room with just enough room for all four of us. 11 November 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly Recommended This hotel has an excellent location, very close to the vibrant Camden market area. The reception, bar and first floor restaurant have recently been pleasantly refurbished. Although quite pricey by HI standards, I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for business or leisure. 11 November 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Camdem Outstanding and unbeatable. Excellent staff and service. Really quiet for location. 10 November 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Struggle to recommend This Hotel feels like a Holiday Inn Express in reality albeit with good Holiday Inn style rooms, I am a platinum member of long standing and do not expect an upgrade automatically, if I get a standard room, that is OK, that said I have always been given Bathrobes and slippers on request. Camden massively struggled with this request due to laundry issues? I took a long view. You to act! 09 November 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great location helpful staff penthouse room great view from balcony clean modern spaces room staff very helpful breakfast good and hot, lovely stay we will return soon 07 November 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Attentive Staff Staff were very welcoming and put their guests at ease. They very kindly returned some train tickets that I had accidently dropped in reception and would have been expensive to replace. I hadn't even realised they had been dropped. They made our stay a relaxed and comfortable experience. Thank you 04 November 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and service. Very clean and comfortable. choice of pillows for comfort. Excellent service from all staff. 02 November 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value for money Looking for a clean and affordable place to stay and get to the Airport on time. Stay here. 27 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent A perfect stay. I was there on vacation with my family and we all enjoyed being there. Friendly service, good breakfast, good office facilities when it was necessary, and total flexibility when our son became ill and we needed to extend the check out. Perfectly located at / in the Camp Market - which we enjoyed many times. We'll be back. 24 October 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn Disappointed that on the last day the toilet tank didn't fill up . The hotel was good though. 20 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely hotel I love this hotel, by far the best Holiday Inn hotel in London. Management and staff are very warm and pleasant and will do their best to accommodate your requests. Will definitely return! 20 October 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place. Great location. One block away from Camden High Street and all the shops and restaurants. Nice view of the lock and regent's Canal if you get a room on the north side. South side over the street can be a little noisy. Tap water has a funny odor, even after it is boiled, but otherwise a very pleasant stay. 19 October 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location Great hotel at the side of Camden Lock. When I arrived in my room over looking the lock, there was loud music coming from the bars opposite. I was worried I might be kept awake. The helpful hotel Staff assurred me it would stop at areasonable hour and it did, so had agreat stay. 18 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and relaxing atmosphere This hotel is in an excellent location for exploring and enjoying Camden Town. It provides a comfortable haven from the busy market and main street yet they are just a stone's throw away. The bar / lounge area is very comfortable with a variety of seating and was a great place to have cup of tea with family and friends who dropped in to visit me at the hotel. The staff were all very helpful and friendly which added greatly to experience that I had when staying at the hotel. 16 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Penthouse and the Views - all I can say is "divine" Wow, what can I say, opened the doors to the penthouse and wow, personal touches, comfort and the room was amazing, we were made to feel like we were the most important people in the world. Even a cupcake to make us smile. Then to top it all, opened the doors to our huge balcony, with magnificent views of Camden and a lot of London. the sun was shinning and the sky was blue, it was so wonderful we spent hours just sitting on the balcony relaxing and taking in all the views. Slept really well and again the penthouse is amazing, lovely coffee at our table in the morning and then enjoyed breakfast at our leisure. Huge thanks to Sahim and Mark, what would I have done without you both. You are amazing!!! Will definitely be back and with our extended family too !! Shelley xxx 16 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Another nice stay A bit peeved at having to pay £22 per night for parking and shower water temperature quite cool in the mornings but this hotel is in such a great location and has the same excellent staff as in previous visits, that it is a great place to stay overall. 15 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ideal I found that those at the hotel were very comforting and made me feel good during a time in which I felt that I was dealing with a very serious matter. Very mnay thanks. 13 October 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zimmergröße nicht familiengerecht Wir buchten als Familie das Hotel. Das Doppelbettzimmer, zum tristen Innenhof gelegen, war für 4 Personen viel zu eng bemessen. Ohne die Nutzung der Klimaanlage wäre das kleine Außenfenster für die Sauerstoffzufuhr nicht ausreichend gewesen. Man bekam in dem Zimmer eine Art "Platzangst". Der Badbereich war ebenfalls zu klein u. wurde lediglich in den 4 Aufenthaltstagen 1 mal zusätzlich gesäubert. Auf der Homepage des Hotels wird eine 360 Grad ( eigentlich 180 Grad Ausblick ) VirtualTour, über die Dächer von London, gezeigt. Die Außentür zur Dachterrasse war hingegen verschlossen. Man konnte den Blick nur eingeschränkt durch die raumhohen Fensterscheiben "geniessen". Besonders die Lage und die Frühstücksauswahl waren perfekt. 12 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A well-run and relaxing hotel in a trendy area Camden Lock is a great, small Holiday Inn. It always feels more individual than a usual HI. It's well-run, friendly, and very relaxing. 11 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Camden Good location with a great variety of restaurants/cafes within 5-10 minutes walk if you want to eat out. The hotel is about 1 hour from Heathrow. Rooms are very well kept and the reception staff are very helpful with inquiries, ordering taxis, assisting with wheelchair and so on. Our room overlooked the Regent's Canal with the Camden Lock within clear view just upstream. There is a bustling food stall market with restaurant too, just across the canal. This can be a bit noisy on Friday and Saturday nights but if it bothers you, foam earplugs are provided on the bedside tables which one of us used them with good effect, the other didn't bother with them and slept soundly. 09 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service and Lovely Staff We had stayed here before and would not consider anywhere else when staying in London. The staff make you feel so welcome and are so friendly and efficient. As an example, the manager helped me on the guest computer when I was unsure about printing out our airline tickets. Without exception, they are all so pleasant. Room was quiet which is so good as this was Camden on a Saturday night. We also like their bar lounge which is really relaxing. Superb location. Well done again, HI Camden Lock. We will be back! 07 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceeded All Expectations This hotel is right on Camden Lock and just off the High Street. It was clean, bright, and the staff were incredibly helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. 07 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Hotel Fantastic hotel, in a great location. Great sized cleanly rooms. Great breakfasts with great choice of food. This hotel is ideally situated, if you want to stay clear of all the hustle bustle of Central London.All the staff, from reception to even the room service cleaners were great. Big thanks to the breakfast staff crew who were fantastic and very friendly towards my 15 month old daughter. And even bigger thanks to Romeo, the maintenance man for rapidly fixing the air con unit. Would most definitely stay at this hotel again. Many thanks Jon, Bec & Rose 06 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel We booked the Holiday Inn - Camden Lock on the internet, and never having stayed in a Holiday Inn before, were a little dubious, but wanted a base by or near Camden Lock. We were really pleased with the hotel, and had a most enjoyable weekend there. We'd highly recommend this hotel, and now look forward to staying at Holiday Inn hotels elsewhere. 02 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn Camden I've stayed in this Hotel multiple times and it never fails too impress. The staff are fantastic and really helpful and the location is superb! It's right on Camden Lock with all the hustle, bustle and nightlife that brings but equally you are a few minutes from the tranquillity of Primrose Hill or Regents Park. Its really handy for transport as you can easily get to St Pancras or Kings Cross but if the weathers nice you can walk along the cannel and take in the sights. I've stayed the on business, when going to gigs, with groups of friends and in with my wife and it has been ideal for all types of stay. Also I should mention that management team that I met of Eddy, Mark and Sahim were all extremely helpful especially when I was there with a large group of people and we needed a help catering for specific accommodation requirements. Great Hotel in a great location. 29 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by uncomplicated and great service The staff are all very welcoming, the ease of check in and check out was uncomplicated and straight forward the ambiance is of a high level across all of the hotel, bar area, rooms and restaurant included. 29 September 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shopping-Pause Bei einem Kurzausflug nach Camden haben wir nur eine Nacht im Hotel verbracht. Bis auf eine laute Hochzeitsfeier im Haus, deren DJ bis 12 Uhr genervt hat, war alles super!!! (aber das war ja wohl eine Ausnahme) Das Personal war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Wir waren voll zufrieden und empfehlen dieses Hotel gerne weiter. 25 September 2014
