My brother and I needed a one night stay in west london, Black Lion filled the bill, tea and coffee and tv in the room, en suite, my only criticism is the lights were too dim.
Over all I would rate 9 out of 10. Read more

Stayed for two nights. Room was spacious, clean and warm. It was a little noisy the first night, but that's to be expected on a busy high street and wasn't a problem. The breakfast was good quality and there was a good choice. Read more

TV didn't work due to previous guest having put it into another language,someone came to put it right but couldn't do at first attempt so had to come back later with the instruction book, no tea bags in room. Room was not cleaned or bin emptied (2 night stay)TV should be checked before new guest arrives in room Read more
overall experience perfect stay , could not fault it however for older OAP's climbing the stairs might proved daunting., so do ask for the rooms on the first floor. Although situated facing the road it is fairly quiet . We have stayed here many times as the bus stop is in front of the hotel . Bus no 16 tajes you straight to Victoria coach station and Brondesbury tube stain 4 mins walk takes you to Gatwick airport . Read more
As I only needed a clean bed and accommodation, the price for London was fair and accommodation basic but acceptable for price paid. Read more

The Pub and the food was 10 out of 10, but the furnishings (room 6) were 'basic' and a little on the older side. I was going to say the bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen ... but no, it is the smallest possible! You could pay a lot more than we but, I and shocked and stunned there is NO cooked breakfast available. I enjoyed the stay based on the pub. Make your mind up on what you want and the price being asked! Read more

We stayed for NYE 2014 and booked V. last minute. The price was for the room and breakfast, and was cheap by London standards for that night but expensive, I suspect, In comparison with the Black Lion's usual rate. We were greeted by the B&B manager who was very polite, friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We loved the room, it was modern, clean, and had everything you'd expect from a normal hotel room. Bed was very comfortable, the standalone heater was great for a very cold winter's night. Read more

an enjoyable week in London Read more
The room booked was an en suite twin bedded room on the first floor. It was clean, had a small fitted wardrobe, small table and two chairs as well as two single beds with clean white cotton sheets,pillow cases and duvet cover. The floor was covered with a wood effect replacement floor. My bed was rather lopsided due to many guests sitting on the side of the bed and breaking it down and that made it uncomfortable. The en suite
was VERY small and I could not use it. Read more
Lovely from start to finish - room was clean & tidy (if a little loud at the front of the hotel, but this is NO fault of the pub, what do you expect when you're staying on a busy high street in London?!) The restaurant was fantastic - really surprised it was quiet on Saturday night, perhaps they need to advertise it a little more? Gorgeous cocktails, fantastic staff - great stay overall. Read more
I needed to stay near to family for one night & this room met my requirements. If I was staying for more than one night I would have booked an ensuite room rather than the one I had where I had to leave my room to use my private facilities. There was a good selection of different food at breakfast. Read more
Very central location, which is really 5 mins from Kilburn tube station and on the N16 night bus route from central London. Will def stay here again as the rooms are a decent size and clean. My room was on the first floor but facing the street, therefore very noisyut still value for money for a weekends stay! Read more

Our daughter recommended it since she lives in the general area. We stayed a total of 11 nights and were never sorry. It was quiet most of the time (couple of times drunken singing from the street in the early hours). Double-bed room was very large, hot-water was plentiful after some cooler, rainy days. Area is very good for all different types of restaurants and food/alcohol shopping. Super close to 2 tube lines, really handy. Read more

Following a long journey we arrived around 9.30pm on a Friday and found the only entrance was through a busy bar; the area for checking in was deserted with no bell.Eventually a friendly face came along and we were shown into a huge room with lots of storage. The ensuite was excellent but the bedroom was cold especially at night, there was an extra blanket in the wardrobe but it was thin . Clearer instructions for openning the external door would have been appreciated Read more
There was an entrance from the rooms to the restaurant/bar without leaving the building, making me feel comfortable as a woman traveling alone. Had breakfast each morning - plenty to choose from, as well as one dinner which was very good. There was antique furniture in the halls that added to the ambience. That marble top side table was gorgeous! Very convenient bus stop right outside the door, tube stop down the block. Read more
Easy place to stay Read more
We stayed for 2 nights We wanted to be near our daughter and husband who live about a 20 minute walk away We wanted a place which wasn't too expensive because we were going to be out all day but we wanted a place which was warm and comfortable and somewhere we could relax before going to bed Read more
We enjoyed our stay but were really disappointed with breakfast. There was not enough food for all customers, plates and cups were missing. I asked if it would be possible to order a proper English breakfast for the following day but was told that kitchen is wont be open till 12.00. Read more

Room - very large, well furnished and recently decorated with comfortable kingsize bed but dreadful pillows and useless reading lights. Intelligently positioned hair dryer next to mirror and small table
Bathroom - well laid out, good quality fittings but the support for the shower head was broken and there was nowhere to put the soap. No bath mat.
Continental breakfast an adequate start for the day. Read more

Enjoyable time catch in with with friends and seeing a bit of London. Read more
We needed a room to sleep in and to hold our suitcases while we did tourist stuff and visited family. The room was cramped, very much so. No air conditioning, usually wouldn't be a factor in London, but we had to visit during a heat wave. Overall it was what we needed, no-frills room for a decent price. Read more

Room was clean and spacious. Although area was noisy (traffic, which could not be helped!), the patrons of the pub down stairs and other pubs/bare/clubs etc. contributed to the noise level.

I booked one night as I was down for Beating Retreat. Room was basic but comfortable. I had the room with it's own separate shower room. Bed was surprisingly comfortable as it was an old style bed. Room at front over a busy main road but I slept pretty well. Good for short stay. Would go back Read more

We've been at the black lion for 3 nights, in a room with ensuite bathroom. The room was quite small but nice and freshly painted. The barthroom was very small, but also this new, even with no place for towels etc. The cleanliness was overall good. The breakfast is served in the pub below, very nice. The food is simple but of good quality. We didn't try the traditional english breakfast, but we eat at the restaurant one night and it has been a good dinner. Attention: no tap beer from 2 june 2013 Read more

It was a very pleasant stay in a really good B&B. Just too bad that is so far from the City. Read more
We regularly stay at the Black Lion and have found that The rooms are very variable. Issues noted with this stay were lack of pillow choice( just two very hard pillows),uncomfortable bed, very creaky floors and it would have been nice to have a larger kettle and more options such as skimmed milk not just whole milk Read more
Didn't have breakfast, bar prices quite high compared to other pubs in the area. Read more
Stayed one night in May 2013. We were going to a party nearby and needed somewhere local to stay. We had a twin room at the Black Lion. Very clean, excellent modern bathroom, and great pub downstairs. Bar manager booked us a taxi and and stood outside with us chatting and even rang the taxi company to chase them up for our car.
Continental breakfast was available included in the price of the room . Read more
As usual the rooms, facilities and staff were great however I filt a bit let down that they no longer offer a cooked breakfast which when you don't eat bread crissants etc means you're left with a bowl of Muesli and a glass of orange juice.
I understand that at the price they charge they can't offer it in with the room anymore however last month when I stayed they had the perfect compromise with the continental style free and an excellent cooked breakfast on offer at a reasonable price. Read more

Just needed a bed for the night after going to a party so didn't want or need anything fancy. Would have liked to stay for a pint in the wonderful bar or some delicious looking food in the restaurant area, but time was short. The breakfast included is basic continental, but for a reasonable surplus you can opt for something cooked also. Would use again for this purpose of stay. Room was clean and basic. Comfy bed and linen, very friendly helpful staff Read more
This is the second time I have stayed at the Black Lion in Kilburn, both times because I needed an overnight stay for a nearby weekend course. Suited my purpose very well. One note to visitors though; this is a pub that does B&B not a hotel, be prepared for stairs. Read more
Booked on the Internet three weeks before and on arrival was booked in without any problems. The room was large and nice and warm as this was Feb and the outside temp was -2c, bathroom c/w shower was clean and the bed was large and comfortable.
Full English breakfast was included and was very good and very efficient service. I had an evening meal in the pub bar and being resident got 15% discount for me and my guest. All in all a very comfortable stay at a budget price, would stay again. Read more

Fantastic pub downstairs (palatial edwardian interior) with good food, great breakfast and reasonable accommodation price mean they get away with the quality of the rooms - JUST. Spartan, basic and very tired (lots of woodchip wallpaper) sums it up, but reasonably clean and 'does the job'. Read more
Staff, accommodation, pub and location are all really good. I stayed on a Wednesday night being in London on business. The only issue I had, and it's not even the Black Lion's fault, is that's it's on a very noisy road - and it's noisy all night. The 24 Hr bus stop right outside doesn't help at all. Read more

I mostly spent time in my room at night. The building is absolutely gorgeous.My window faced the main street but that it wasn't nosy because the windows were double-paned. I stayed in a single room, very bright and warm.The TV set was a flat one, quite modern and there was also an electrical pot and some tea,coffee and milk. The bathroom wasn't ensuite, but it was still private. It was in very good conditions and very clean. The breakfast was good enough if you don't prefer the English-styled on Read more
I just loved this spot. It was a great price and in a great location. I would highly recommend it and would stay again next time i am in London. I really liked the privacy of if coming in and out was seperate from the pub and the windown were gorgerous and big facing onto the high road. Read more

Wasn't looking for posh and carpeted - just value for money and that is exactly what i got. breakfast was included in room price and the full english was perfect. dinner in the restaurant was very pleasant and plentiful. would highly recommend staying at this hotel. plus its right on kilburn high road which runs straight to marble arch and the centre of london via buses, taxis, underground. Read more
spotlessly clean bedroom and ensuite , despite fronting Kilburn High Road is relatively quiet (well-sealed double glazing) , discount of meals taken in restaurant , excellent breakfast well worth a gratuity , friendly helpful staff in all areas , close to bus /overground and underground routes (20minutes to central London), discrete management , good overall value , this was my fourth stay and will stay again.

We were very pleasantly surprised with the Black Lion. Even though we didn't arrive until the early hours of the morning, staff were still available and helpful. Our room was very spacious w a large shower and everything was very clean. The pub underneath seemed very cool - we wished we'd been there earlier to enjoy it. Read more
Stayed here for the Olympics. B&B is very close to Kilburn Undergroud Station and has very good access links into central London Read more
4 night stay during Olympic games. lengthy commute to Greenwich but great value accommodation more than made up for it. Read more
I actually stayed in the basement flat round the corner rather than the actual guesthouse so this review is for the flat. The stay was fine but I was there as I was working as a volunteer in the Olympics. The flat was fine but I stayed in the front bedroom which was very noisy as I couldn't close the window so spent the nights sleeping on the couch. Flat was reasonably clean although the bathroom grouting needs a clean and under the couch. Couch covers were ripped. Oven guide needed. Read more

The room was clean. The shower was good and hot. Busy road outside but double glazing kept noise out. Decor of the entrance hall and hallways needs updating. Staff were all friendly and accommodating. This is not luxury accommodation, but for the price what do you expect. Breakfast wasn't the best but was edible, coffee was stewed and instant. Location (Kilburn) is fun lively and cosmopolitan Read more

Within walking distance of Kilburn Station, it is in a great position if you need to travel. That night I went to eat in the pub part of the hotel and was served quickly and the food was brilliant. I had a great nights sleep and there was a great choice of food for breakfast the following morning. Great hotel. Read more

Friendly greeting and heavy case carried up the two flights of stairs for us. The clean and perfectly adequate room would have been easily significantly improved if there had been soap provided and a plug for the washbasin. The generous wardrobe was provided with ample hangers but the absence of hooks anywhere, especially in the shower room and by the radiator, was very inconvenient. Efficient new double glazing adequately suppressed noise from very busy main road outside our 2nd floor window. Read more

Booked room 3 days prior due to being let down at nearby friends accommodation. Most other options locally would've cost me around a small fortune so thought I would give the Black Lion a whirl. The room was clean, comfortable and value for money. With the ridiculously high prices elsewhere I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for quality & value on a budget. Read more
Visiting our son who lives in Kilburn, we found the hotel very convenient. Tried the food one evening and were surprised to find it very good. Read more
I was given a double room with single occupancy and for the price I paid was good value. The room was tidy and tastefully decorated, quiet and adequate. Breakfast was served in a cafe across the road which was not a problem. Bad points were the blocked shower tray, no chair/table or desk in the room, no hooks, towel rails or shelves in the bathroom (a pet hate of mine in hotel rooms)and the coffee cup I used the first night had not been washed or cleaned when I returned to the room the next day. Read more
I have used the Black Lion on numerous occasions over the last 2 years. However on this occasion on arrival the bed was not made up, there was no bedside light and the radiator could not be adjusted. I was really disappointed. There have been refurbishment works the last couple of visits this year and perhaps management's eye is off the ball but these issues are pretty basic in my view. Also no deduction in price or offer of a pint on the house which would have been appreicated. Read more
I had such a great stay there, the rooms were IMPRESSIVE, the location is brilliant, so much so, I extended my stay by FOUR nights, its a "home away from home" I'm extremely happy, not one complaint and I would highly recommend it.

It's a nice place near the subway and close to the city center. In the evening is a very nice pub. Read more
My room was above main street. Yesterday they were changing the windows, so hope is less noisy. Bathroom for the single room is separated, quite small. Breakfast is quite good in the across the street cafe. Restaurant is cozy and u get discount too, good food. Neighborhood not the best, but have many shops and good bus service. I don t recommend walking around alone after 10pm, they stare at you a lot Read more
I needed somewhere close to where my son is living in the UK. He recommended the Black Lion. Great pub with a whole lot of character. Rooms are simple, clean and well kept. Read more
I used the Black Lion as a base for extensive exploration of London. I came to practice yoga in the mornings (Alchemy, Camden and Life Center, Notting Hill) and explore London in the afternoons. Read more
Beds soft and comfy, water hot and immediately available. Rooms clean, charming. In London for vacation. had stayed in the Black Lion 3 years ago and wanted to stay again. Love the pub, the food, and the hospitality. Read more
I stayed alone for 2 nights to attend a local event. Great location, helpful staff. Would definitely continue to recommend it. Read more
Breakfast although good lacked variety--- no choice. Some snacks in rooms would be appreciated. Read more
The hotel is easy to find, next to the entrance to the park and close to the railway station. The park closes at night. In the pub below it the staff can help you with keys etc. My room was 25 m2, 2 VERY comfortable beds (though I was alone) and clean. The room is next to a clean, nice park. The street can be somewhat noisy at night, though nothing extreme. Read more
very good Read more
Tiring: noisy revellers late at night. Worse still was noisy, guitar playing accompanied by loud (attempted) singing until 3.30 am from adjoining guest in room 7 and whilst in shower opposite my room despite my verbal objections which were totally ignored.Breakfast in cafe opposite - what is that all about ????

A bit noisy at nights due the proximity to the street with high traffic, but the rooms where very confortable. Read more
Everything was pretty great but we did not have all the necessary items in our bathroom, we asked for toilet paper and did not receive any while we were out and the towels were not replenished. Overall it was a good stay but a few things got overlooked. Read more

We are very happy during this short holidays in London. The excelent breakfast in Cocoa in company with the very good and friendly persons who manage this business. We'll repeat again. My family and me are very happy with the location, with the room and the most important with the friendlyness of London. Read more
I was rather pleased with the facilities of this garden appartment. It is difficult to fathom what to expect, but this really was top modern facilities shared with another guest, but without any bothering. The location was also much more accessible with public transport than I had thought. I would consider returning, when I should spent some more days in London - perhaps also to make use of the excellent cooking facilities, which I did not have time for on this occasion Read more

Was quite nervous about the accomodation as I had booked fr a group of aduls, however they and I were very impressed with the size of rooms, quality of breakfast and the cleanlines. Read more
The room was massive, and a total bargin, considering I have paid much more for a smaller room, made my trip to london much better! Read more
A short break in London for a reasonable price and good quality. The guest house is a 3 minute walk from Kilburn underground station, however they do have a 'Garden Flat' just around the corner from there. Read more
The room was large and clean. If you are a light sleeper, you will need earplugs as many of the rooms face on to the Kilburn High Road which can be noisy at night, especially at week-ends. But it's a great location and the pub is terrific. Read more
Five nights, cleaned daily, close to underground and overground rail service, frequent buses almost at door on busy high street with lots of choice of food venues and other services. Far from luxury but adequate if out for day or day and evening. Never tried the pub restaurant but menu looked trendy and refurbishment sensitive to the previous decor and style.
The cooked breakfast at the nearby Efe's Cafe seemed unusual but was quick, wholesome, convenient and they gave good, friendly service. Read more
3 nights, nice appartment for a couple or with friends. Close to the underground and buses. Read more
Arrived at hotel to find we were actually sharing a vile garden flat 1/2 mile away from the hotel it was worse than a hostel and had no decent bathroom and someone had left all there belongins around the place like they lived there. We basically locked ate selves into the room until morning. We had a visitor half way through the night trying to get into are room which was very inappropriate. We were extremely disappointed and will never be returning you couldn't pay me to stay there again Read more
a shower with a shower head that comes off under pressure.
room not that clean, not well maintained.
Breakfast did not happen for us and our two relatives. There was much noise and fuss in the kitchen but instead of a full english we e=were given two rounds of bread that was toasted on one side only.
We have already emailed a complaint to another address and hope that we will get a response and a refund Read more
Two over 65 couples on vacation, bound to stay in London for four nights. Made February reservations for June stay. Promised 1st floor non-smoking rooms. Published data indicated Wi-Fi available and free. Actual rooms were on 2nd floor, 45 steps from street, one room smelled like an ash tray, no Wi-Fi and personnel did not seem interested in getting it working... or offer alternatives. One couple left the first night, the other toughed it out by treating the room as a "crash pad." Read more

We enjoyed our short stay of 2 nights at the hotel as we had come there to see our daughter, who lives in Brent. Read more
I enjoyed the stay and the room, and appreciated that the room was warm. However the bathroom was not in good shape: lights were not working, the holder for the showerhead was not working (so you could not use it other than holding it in your hand.) The holder for the toilet paper roll was also broken and the toilet paper often fell of it. Read more

I was visiting a show at a club about 200m away and then going on to a business meeting the following day, so The Black Lion was ideally located, just 3-mins walk from the Jubilee line. Read more

Good rooms, a little bit noisy on the streest side. Read more
I have been staying in various hotels in London every week for the past few months. I can say that this is the best place by far. The rooms have space in them and are some of the cleanest I have found. Breakfast in the bar has a nice atmosphire in fact the whole place has a wonderful atmosphire. All for a fraction of the cost of some of the other bugdet hotel's in London. I have booked my room for the next few months. The main road outside is busy at all times I found earplugs work. Read more
comfortable for 1 night Read more
I stayed in the B&B for two nights and shared a room with a friend. The beds are good. Didn't try the breakfast. We slept well and enjoyed London. Perfect for a weekendstay. Read more
No bad comments at all Read more
Excellent value for London, Good Location easy access to tubes and overground. Friendly staff lovely food in the pub. Rooms very clean. Best value I have found in London in eight years. Read more
The room was very clean, but small and the bathroom was tiny, but was ok for our needs. If we had been staying longer the room wouldnt have been suitable.Only problem we had was just on the first night,the whole guest house was laminate flooring so you can hear every step anyone takes so didnt have a good nights sleeps,but after that first night we didnt have any more problems.Breakfast was great with lots of variety and handy as you can take it back to your room.Very basic,get what you pay for. Read more
Simple and nice - loved it Read more
Room (a twin) was spacious and clean and overall represented good value at price range. Minor niggles would be design of toilet/shower in which a large person would struggle to sit without pulling sink off the wall. Noise can be a concern depending on which side of the pub your room is on, but that shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. Breakfast is average fair (cereal, orange juice, bread for toasting etc) which you take into your room on a tray. Staff seem friendly and helpful. No Parking on site Read more
The Black Lion is a beautiful old Pub, extremely charming.
It was a pleasure to stay there, enjoying a genuine place with a very helpful staff. Read more
I was in town for a relative's birthday and this place was in a perfect location for the festivities. Breakfast was included in the price, but due to said festivites, I wasn't really up for it! I was told when I checked in however, that for the breakfast I would have to go downstairs to the buffet, get what I wanted and then return to my room to eat it. Read more
perfect in all senses according to the invest Read more
two nights stay Read more
A fiasco on the underground reaching it (due to work on the line) but return journey just caught bus right outside direct to Paddington so next time will cut out the tube. A pub with good food & yummy cocktails very busy but didn't hear a thing in our room. The very busy area had so much to offer in the way of food (fast or otherwise) we ate twice at Ciao Ciao italian & were amazed by the absolute value & quality of the food, gold star to them.

Stayed at the Black Lion on a Tuesday night with low aspirations due to the low price. However I was slightly surprised by the place. It is not the Ritz but you are not paying those prices. It is clean though basic. The room (4) is large with enough of a bathroom to do a job. If you want somewhere to lay your head and have a shower without breaking the bank you can't go far wrong. If you plan on spending all evening in your room, don't bother. Read more
Very good , friendly helpful staff, good but simple breakfast. Read more
Das Hotel lag sehr verkehrsgünsting 3 Minuten von einer U-Bahn Linie (Jubilee), die nach nur wenigen Stationen direkt an der Oxford-Street (einkaufen), Green-Park oder Westminster (Buck.Palace, Westm.Abbey, Big Ben...) hält. In der Straße sind viele Lokale und kleine Geschäfte. Etwas lauter, aber ok. Read more
One night, business. Read more
A comfortable welcoming environment upon arrival. Very good food and drink at a great price. Unfortunately there was no proper parking as described, and the kettle in room was covered with scum / dirt inside, television was not working, and had three single beds instead of one double as requested. The televison was fixed when mentioned but did not mention other problem areas. Read more
we stayed for three nights at the end of june and it was an ideal room, it was kept very clean and was reasonable for the price we paid. Read more
The staff were fantastic, they were the most helpful friendly bunch you could come across. Thanks to all of you who helped make our stay so enjoyable. The room was very clean and tidy, just perfect. Read more
The stay was good, slept well, although you can hear every time someone comes in through the main door and up the stairs. But on the whole, quiet. Read more
good rooms for a guesthouse in London and good facilities EG: tv WIFI tea and coffe etc. Read more
Returned to Black Lion in June, knowing that it is relatively cheap and in a good location for public transport. I was given a huge room on the front corner of the building and on the first floor (very steep stairs would make it unsuitable for people with mobility issues). Unfortunately, this made it very noisy as you are on a main road and one of the windows would not shut over completely. Read more
Short 3 days break with old friends without wifes and kids Read more
Good Read more
I was made very welcome, slept in a "clean comfortable" bed, with better hygeine standards than most hotels I have used in the past. The hotels I used to use were "lets say... the chains" Read more
We were a group of twenty people. We had a very enjoyable stay. Rooms were very clean and Jennifier (Breakfast Staff) was very understanding and helpful. Jennifier was a credit to the Black Lion. Read more

Toilet only flushed water. And there is no night staff so you sleep with it. Read more
We stayed at The Black Lion B&B for the weekend. The room was fair enough, had a good size, it was clean and it even had wi-fi. Breackfast was included in the rate.
Staff was very friendly and always willing to help. We made reservations online and paid them in advance and everything was very simple.
We had the chance to eat at the restaurant and it was really good. The pub was nice too. Read more

Come for a pub dinner but stay somewhere else Read more
Since part of my family moved to London I have stayed in a variety of establishments. The Black Lion is in a great locale, basic but clean friendly and has all the facilities you would need. Staff helpful and the cost is within my budget and reasonable compared to accommodation round about. I like the freedom to come and go as I please. i like having access to the pub as a meeting place and as an aside the pub food was great. Read more
If the need is to stay in the zone 1-2 is fine, if expectations are not an exclusive place that is where we go Read more
We got everything we expected from The Black Lion. No luxury, but cleanliness. No haute cuisine, but amazing location. Security and service were good, rooms were quiet and warm. En Suite was convenient, and digital TV on a flatscreen was an unexpected bonus. Breakfast was basic, self-service from a limited buffet, but absolutely fine. The cost was a bargain for an amazing location, and the experience was perfectly pleasant and very well organised. Read more
Thank you for a wonderful 3 night stay. Rooms were very clean, comfortable and warm! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Read more

dans le quartier de kilburn, près du Luminaire (bar musical) d'accès facile par le métro "Jubilee" ce B&B est d'un très bon rapport qualité/prix.
Les chambres ont récemment été rénovées et sont grandes. Le personnel accueillant et efficace. Le petit-déjeuner est correct, vous vous servez et l'emportez dans votre chambre.
Au rez de chaussée vous pourrez vous restaurer et boire un verre au Pub. Read more
Very convenient to our family. In the past have stayed at more traditional hotels Read more
Firstly, the check-in gent and the pub staff were all very friendly and efficient. Unfortunately, that's where the plus points finish. The room, which according to the website has been "recently refurbished" had a toilet which wasn't even fixed to the floor. When flushed it came clean off the floor and moved forward about 3"! The noise from the street was unbareable 'til about 4am. After that, the noise from the staff within the B&B was dreadful. No consideration for guests. No sleep whatsoever. Read more
The hotel was simple and low thrills but perfect for somewhere to stay if all your interested in is somewhere to sleep. The overall hotel was clean and nice but the bathrooms are tiny. Read more
The quality of rooms was not stable. We rented 2 rooms during New Year. One was OK. My friends were happy with that. But my room was not good. The light above basin was broken and the main light was broken as well. On the other hand, the metal hosepipe was broken, and it cut my finger and made me bleed. And the staff was busy at doing business at 1st floor Bar and probably had no time to take care of the rooms at upper floors. Read more
Very nice rooms, but unfortunately not clean (all over with dust, my white socks have been black!- no lie, I wonder if they have a vacuum-cleaner) In the bathroom we had some visitors (silver-fishes). Breakfast a bit poor: just 4 croissants for all guests and if you come at 8, there is no bread and cheese left. (Breakfast from 7-9). The rooms on the streetside sooooo loud, it´s not possible to sleep without earplugs. Read more
Our stay at the Black Lion is exactly whta we could have hoped for: clean accommodation in the area we needed to be, at a reasonable price.Our room was also exceptionally quiet considering its location.
We didn't have time to have the full English breakfast but the cold buffet was more than adequate Read more
You get what you pay for, i suppose. Shabby chic, without the chic. Read more
Located over an amazing Victorian pub. Entrance looked a bit grubby but ensuite room huge, good view of Kilburn and very comfy. Saniflow toilet a bit annoying in the night but a great place to crash out. Would stay again. Read more
I think this place was good enough for a few nights. The beds were very good, the heating system worked, everything you needed was there, but there is nothing special to say about it. Read more
I had a three bed room, which was spacious and nice. Clean, basic, no nonsense. Excellent communications to all parts of London, the direct bus to Paddington is very convenient, as is both OVerground and Underground. Read more
Steep, narrow stairs. Quite a struggle if you have heavy luggage. The window could not be closed properly, constant cold draft. Made the noise from the Kilburn High Road annoying at night. On the positive side I could use it as a fridge! The cleanliness was poor, very dirty bedskirts, layers of dust under/behind the beds. The kettle was disgusting, moulded inside. I had to buy a new one. The breakfast was simple, but OK. Read more
with a little effort, like cleaning up more the common areas or re-painting few details the quality of the hotel would increase a lot Read more
My stay there were nice and relaxing. The staff did a very good job. Keep it up! Read more
