Excellent ValuePosted Aug 19, 2015
Pros: The proprietor, Nelson Ricardo. The location. The price.
Cons: Air conditioning.
Location: Excellent. Camden Town, shopping and the Underground
I researched various forums to locate the Castle Bar - as I didn't want to pay a fortune for a Bed and Breakfast that was in a good location. The Castle Bar far exceeded expectations. I knew the place was old and the room would be relatively Spartan and that I would need to share a bathroom. What I didn't expect was how large the room was and how nice the bathrooms (there are two that can be shared) would be. Additionally, the breakfast was pretty good and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Cons: no air conditioning and depending on the weather it might get pretty warm. Shared bathroom. Potential noise problems with pub located on first floor. Pros: good location. Buses: They go all directions from the corner out front. One takes you directly to Camden Town and back and they run pretty late (N29). The other direction takes you directly to the Underground (Caledonian Road Station on the Piccadilly Line). Walking: It isn't a far walk to either Camden Town or the Underground. The Caledonian Road Station is about a 5-7 minute walk through a safe neighborhood. Parking: There are four or five off-street, small spots available - at no charge (the smaller the car the better). E-mail ahead to make sure one is open. Convenience stores: There are two or three across the street - very nice. Free Wi-Fi. The proprietor: Nelson Ricardo. He is fantastic and very helpful. I came in way before check-in, but he offered to keep luggage and allow me to park my car - super helpful!!

Gutes Preisleistungsverhältnis & VerkehrsanbindungPosted Jul 15, 2015
Pros: Frühstück, Nahverker, Service
Cons: Auch unter den Betten Staub wischen.
Location: Nördlich von Camden
Ein sehr gut an den öffentlichen Nahverkehr angebundenes Hotel mit gutem Preisleistungsverhältnis. Freundlicher und sehr hilfsbereiter Service. Frisch zubereitetes Frühstück und hervorragender Kaffee. Pub im EG und Terasse im 1. Stock, angegliedertes hervorragendes Fischlokal, beinahe günstig für London. Geräusche in der Nacht: Pub war nicht zu hören; Straßengeräusche, aber nicht sehr störend bzw. normal für diese Lage (an einer Straße) Gemeinschaftsbad: Wurde prinzipiell ausreichend gereinigt, jedoch wissen anscheinend nicht alle Hotelbewohner, dass man das Bad so verlässt, wie man es selbst gerne vorfinden würde und dass es eine Klospühlung gibt.

Good for a weekend away!Posted Jul 13, 2015
A good b&b if your visiting London for the weekend. At most a 10 minute walk from the nearest tube station, which will take you to the heart of London. A pub on the ground floor for relaxing in the evenings. Clean and comfy rooms. All for a good price. Would definitely recommend this b&b

Please read before you decide based on my ratingPosted Jul 5, 2015
Pros: The couple running the place.
Cons: The place needs a lot of fixing up
Location: While I wasn't scared, it really isn't a great location for someone vacationing. Not much to do nearby.
There is a part of me that feels bad for giving a bad rating, however, I really feel if you are like me then you will not be happy to stay here. The couple running the hotel are VERY nice and VERY accommodating and they work like dogs. However, I'm a girl from Boca Raton, FL and while I'm down to earth I am a little spoiled. I was trying to do Europe on a budget and I picked this place. It wasn't an ideal location for someone who is vacationing.You need to know that the hotel doesn't look anything like the picture they show you. It is very old and needs A LOT of work. Again, if you don't require much and don't mind sharing a bathroom, then this could be a perfect place for you to stay. The bathroom was used by another person staying and they couldn't even clean up after themselves and neither myself or my 12 yr old boy would shower in there. The breakfast was delicious, though.

Völlig OK wenn man ein kleineres Budget hatPosted Jul 3, 2015
Das Haus ist sicher nicht im Besten Zustand und so sehen auch die Gemeinschaftsbäder und die Zimmer aus! Wenn man damit leben kann machen die unglaublich netten Betreiber diese B&B und das gute Frühstück alles wett!! Die Lage mit Bushaltestelle vor der Tür und der U-Bahn in 5 Min Fußweg ist gut. Eine günstige Möglichkeit in London zu übernachten!

second stayPosted May 29, 2015 on Hotels
This was my second stay at the castle bar and I enjoyed it as much as the first. The locals in the bar were friendly and the bed was sooooo comfortable. Perfect for a short getaway.
