I needed a room for the night near to the Science Museum and picked the Gainsborough because of its proximity to the venue. Having paid £69.00 for a single room (normally approx £140.00) i imagined it would be of very good quality. Whilst the hotel...More
The location of the hotel is perfect, you are close to Hyde Park, museums and the Royal Albert Hall. The staff were very friendly and always ready to help. Room was reasonable size and the bed comfortable. There are a lot of nice restaurants and...More
We spent a weekend with my boyfriend . I could only say - an excellent hotel in great location. So friendly staff, couldn't be more helpful. Immaculate clean rooms and very comfortable beds. Unbeatable price for fantastic weekend!
Although this hotel is advertised as a four star it is not. It is however, a solid three star in a great location for the money. It is in South Kensington and centrally located to most London attractions. There are shops and restaurants nearby and...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.
