This place needs a real refurb
I had a basement room
Decor old fashioned but maybe that is deliberate
Weird smell at basement level
£12 for continental breakfast - I went to a cafe
Good location though
The location is great (South Kensington) and the room was quite. But the rest is globally poor and the breakfast doesn't deserve your interest.
Welcome person really weird. Very long time to check in. No invoices available (believe it!) Room very average (especially the bathroom)....More
We stayed last month in Gainsborough with my boyfriend on our trip to London. The Room was clean and quiet ,helpful and friendly staff,
great location. 2 min walk to cultural corner of London where we most wanted to visit
Definitely we would stay again.
Well let's start with some positive things: the towels and toiletries were nice, the TV worked, the location was good for the Museums and the 2 staff I met whilst scatty were polite. But that I'd literally anything good I have to say about this...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
