“A Great Find!”
Charlies is a unique, family owned, 2 star B & B in a lovely neighborhood of old homes just north of London - 10 minutes on the underground, and a 10 minute walk through the quiet neighborhood. The price is excellent, the rooms are very small, but clean, with crisp white sheets and duvets, the breakfasts are prepared individually and quickly, and are excellent, with a cold and hot option. The proprieter is very helpful and willing to do go above and beyond - just ask him if he can help and he will. This is not a fancy place, but for the low price and good food and service, we were very pleased. Charlies is a real find.
“Small Room but Very Friendly & Helpful”
Don't expect a lot of space as some of the rooms are small. Nevertheless, the friendliness, helpfulness and service provided by the owner and staff more than make-up for any inconvienence that the room size may cause. Look elsewhere if you are expecting 5-star amenities. However, the breakfasts were always freshly made, filling and seconds available if desired. For those on a budget, Andy, the crew at Charlie's B&B and it's location make this hotel an ideal place from which to explore London (an Oyster Card is very handy). It's a short (8-9 minute) walk to the tube station and even less to the nearest bus stop (which is just across the road from the local pub). Nearby attractions include Camden Lock Market and Hampsted Heath. Suggest contacting Charlie's directly for additional details about the property and the services. Travellers will be hard pressed to find better accomodation value in London for the price charged here.
“basic but clean and comfy”
very basic hotel/food ...clean and comfortable ...little bit noisy in the nights due to thin walls ..very friendly and helpful staff ..close to tube station and town
“clean and cheap, that's enough...”
The location is very good. very nice neighbourhood. our room was a little too small, though, but clean. The breakfast was very basic but satisfactory. Recommended for basic accommodation.
“A snug little spot”
A clean and cozy little place, reasonably close to the tube (if you don't mind a ~5 minute walk; it was managable with some rather heavy luggage). Friendly proprietor, good breakfast, from our stay seemed like a nice and quiet neighborhood. Only downside was that the WiFi was *highly* intermittant. We were downstairs, so might have been a little far from the receiver, but I wouldn't count on it. With persistance, could check/send email, but google maps was right out. All and all: nice for the price. Will most likely stay here next time we're in London.
“Good case for this money”
The location is convinient - only 15 minutes by underground to the centre. Good hot breakfast. Free WiFi and TV of high quality. But room was very small and cold. I'd recommend it if you not too exacting.
“Good accomadation on a budget”
Friendly service good location would recommend
Ok B&B located a short walk from Tufnell Park tube station. It offers 8 secure places to park your car.
“Nice Hotel but could be better”
Nice neighborhood, friendly staff and very close the tube line.. However, room furniture doesn't suit such small rooms and the bathroom is awfully small, you really need to be quite fit to use it!
“not the hilton but great beds”
If you plan to live there it is ok . The breakfast is good enough to get you going in the morning , and remember to ask them to turn the heat on in your room every night . The room is not up to date but they seem to be repairing some rooms so it might be better soon . You might also want to invest in a prepaid cell phone but you could used the pay phone on the first floor . Also make sure u have an oyster card for transportation because its a little far from central london . As for me and my family I give this hotel a B because the beds were very comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful . I would stay again even if its not the Hilton
