I specifically picked out the Holiday Inn Camden Lock as a hotel to stay at in London based on my experience internationally with Holiday Inn, the price, as well as the convenient location.
Arriving at London Heathrow, I took the Heathrow Express train to Paddington station. I switched to the Hammersmith and City tube to Kings Cross and finally changed to the Northern Line to Camden Town station. The hotel was a 5 minute walk from the tube. Heading out of the tube, you cross over at Jamestown Road and the Holiday Inn is on the right.
As you’re walking from the subway to the Holiday Inn, you’ll pass an alternative shopping area called Camden Market where there are plenty of clothing boutiques and specialty shops.
I stayed in an Executive Room which was huge, clean, with a perfect working area.
There was even a Foursquare special when I checked in, offering a free 24 hours worth of Internet.
My favorite part of my staff at the Holiday Inn was the breakfast.
I was very excited to see they had Alpen cereal. When I was at the Conrad Rangali Island in the Maldives, they had this same cereal there. It was the perfect breakfast with yoghurt.
The hash brown potatoes were perfectly cooked and crispy. The bacon was the perfect explosion of flavor as well while the cooked to order eggs made their breakfast a prefect start to the morning.
The hotel is perfect situated close to a subway station for heading into town and seeing the sites. It only took a little bit of time to reach any destination from the Camden Town station.
Overall I would recommend the London Holiday Inn Camden Lock for it’s convenient location, great rooms, local eateries, and great breakfast.
