We had a family room, consisting of a small wall dividing the double bed and the...More
Me and my husband recently stayed at The Gainsborough Hotel as we were going to watch the IAAF World Championships. I booked the hotel many months ago as I knew the price would increase.
After reading recent posts, I was a bit apprehensive, however when...More
Found this hotel via Booking.com. The website makes the place look worth staying at, price quite reasonable at £155 a night for the location, school boy error of not reading recent reviews !!
The outside looks fine on arrival, but goes downhill from there on....More
Although the room seems a bit old, especially the carpet needs to be replaced (it felt dirty even though maybe they cleaned it) and they didn't have any slippers to wear inside the room, overall it was nice to stay there. The breakfast was nice,...More
This place needs a real refurb
I had a basement room
Decor old fashioned but maybe that is deliberate

Good location though
US$126 - US$248 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
