The best thing about our room were the curtains! The Georgian high ceilings are lovely but the whole place is tatty. The reception area looks good but looking past that the stair/landing carpet is old and stained, the wall paper is faded and peeling in...More
I guess that you get what you pay for but I still feel very let down by this hotel. I booked a room at short notice on www.laterooms.co.uk and found a "special deal" at the Gainsborough near to South Kensington Tube. It was described as...More
Me and my partner normally celebrate our birthday in a nice hotel in this area of Kensington/Chelsea. I got there first to realised the room was dark and the only view was to some building black pipes. Immediately ask the reception for a better room...More
150 € for a double per night and we got a Room underground full of mould and Smell. We have been moved but only after a nerve crisis.
Breakfast in the average.
Maybe the only 4 star hotel in London Without a free wi-fi connection.

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.
