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... More

This place stands out for one thing: It appears to be one of the very few places between Camden and Holloway in that price class that actually has a working internet. The breakfast is generous, too, and the staff are very friendly. Can't give five stars as the overall condition of the property isn;t that good and taking a shower... More

Basically its a grand spot, clean {basic} room, smashing breakfast. Unfortunately the noise from the bar was boomboom until @2am on Fri & Sat morning. Also the [shared] bathroom was in too much of a state to use by Sunday.

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. Excellent and friendly staff. At breakfast you have a choice of what you would like... More

Stayed a couple of nights with two friends. Had to wait until after 3pm to check in but everything was as we wanted - nice room, good breakfast and close to the Underground station (only about a few minutes away from the centre of London). Ideal location and excellent value for money.

Very good value for money, a warm & friendly welcome & a really nice fish restaurant! This small hotel is very reasonably priced for central London altho the rooms are very basic but clean & comfortable. A real find & I look forward to returning some day.

Basically there is nothing wrong with this place, except that the wifi is not working properly all the time, or that the showers did not work ultimately. Location is good, easy transportation to the city center or to Camden Town. What makes this place better than average though is the friendly staff and the tasty breakfast. Better value for money...
