This hotel is in a perfect location for touring London. Was very worried after reading some bad reviews but for the price we paid (£89 for a twin room) in this location we couldn't complain. Yes, the rooms and en suites are a little tired, but ours was spotless and the beds were very comfortable. To be honest I could have done with another blanket as it was snowing while we visited and I was a little cold, but I could have asked for one if I was that bothered!
Our room was an average size, with a small en suite and faced the back of the hotel so didn't have a view, but since we only wanted to crash for the night this didn't matter as we spent very little time there.
If you want luxury, this isn't it. However, if you want a clean and comfy room in a perfect location then this hotel is ideal.

- Imagine an English country home magically whisked to the most exclusive London borough, and you have The Gainsborough. Named after the celebrated artist, The Gainsborough combines the attractive style of bygone days with an easy informality. To stay here is to enjoy London of fashionable South Kensington, Harrods, the restaurants and antique markets, pubs and delightful backwaters of Chelsea and Knightsbridge. You are at the heart of the capital's culture too with great museums - Science, Natural History, the Victoria & Albert - nearby; and for music lovers, the glorious Royal Albert Hall is just minutes away. The well-stocked lounge bar is the spot for a leisurely drink or a snack from the light menu. With 24-hour room service, butlers on immediate call and a reception ever ready to meet your needs, nothing is too much for our attentive staff. ... more less
