I recently stayed at Selina Camden & Cowork in Chalk Farm, London, in September 2023 and it was an extraordinary experience. Becky and Adam, two standout staff members, provided exceptional service. Becky's warm welcome and helpfulness made me feel valued, while Adam's local knowledge enhanced my stay. The hotel's spacious, clean rooms, top-notch amenities, and strict safety protocols further impressed me. Thanks to Becky and Adam, my stay exceeded expectations. I look forward to returning to Selina Camden & Cowork for another delightful experience. Highly recommended!

Horrible Checkin experience, rooms a total cat fish, in horrible condition. Staff below standard. The first staff member who we encountered was beyond rude. We walked in and she acted like we were the biggest intruder and inconvenience to her life. We asked if we can check in early, she said no, it’s 3pm. We asked if we can store our luggage then she unwillingly proceeded to go to a room and asked me to just drop it myself with no tags. This “luggage room” (really just a supply room) was number locked (I saw the # as she punched, won’t disclose here but it’s easy) we found it to be extremely unsafe so we opt to not store and just waited in the “co-work” area. After a few mins we were quick to discover that 8 out of the 10 people in this area were actually just employees at Selena and they kicked actual hotel guests out of this area so they can do “meetings”…the rude lady at the beginning then came to her “boss” next to us, acting all nice, so we knew she has it in her to be nice, just not to guests. We finally checked in with the one employee who was nice, got put to our room and wow, it looks horrible. The room had no lamp shade, 1 hanger, shower that barely worked and wall paint that are so beat up that it should have been taken cared of months ago. The room also smelled horrible. When we are in the hallway, empty glasses everywhere, hallway with left over house keeping dirty sheets not picked up. Honestly, the management of this place is a joke. It feels more like a bunch of tech start up folks trying to run a hotel. Seeing how many employees who just sit there on their computer vs the lack of actual service staff, they are really doing the hotel a disservice. Just do the basics of running a hotel and they will get further than trying to run it to the ground.
