Great location for Royal Albert Hall, Hyde Park, Natural History and V&A museums. Room was very clean and staff were really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. We would definitely stay here again!
I only booked into this hotel as I was going to the Chelsea Flower Show and it had rooms available in my budget. I cannot believe they advertise themselves as a four star hotel. I chose a Superior Single room and all I can say...More
Great location as we were singing in the Royal Albert Hall. An older property but clean and comfortable. We had continental breakfast included which was adequate but you could upgrade to full cooked breakfast for £5
Lara on reception was very friendly and helpful.
close to subway, great location; great service, especially the attendent Laisa, she was always very helping and kind. We had a really nice time there.
Breakfast was very good; the room was well cleaned and good size. Only the elevator is very small. After all,...More
Very friendly staff, very attentive - especially attendant Irena. Delicious and hearty full English breakfast at a reasonable price for London. So near to the tube and Kensington area sites for tourism, in a quieter area not overrun by tourists, that Gainsborough is worth considering....More

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.

I am not sure but having looked at the map it seems that the Dominion Theatre is in Westminster and the hotel is in Kensington near The Serpentine. It would be at least a tube ride away and not within walking distance
