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.

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.

As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
I booked a single room for 2 nights, mainly for it's location and price. The room was a proper single - just room for a single bed with a small table and chair, small wardrobe and bedside table. I had arrived early and couldn't check...More
The most uncomfortable bed and pillows I’ve ever slept on! The radiator never turned off, so hot had to sleep with window open. The bathroom had broken tiles a noisy fan and mould. Generally shabby sh*t
However the staff were very lovely.
Our room was in the basement. It was dark and cold. The heating didn't work, freezing during the night, uncomfortable bed. There's school playground behind the hotel, very noisy. Great location. We won't be back
it is such a good hotel to stay for a couple of days. Zentralized, but really quite. Typical british cosy style, friendly staff. Walking distance to a lot of museums, Hyde Park, Knightsbridge etc.
We were looking for a place to stay for one night after the theatre. This place was great value at £65 for the night, just a couple of stops on the underground from West end. And 5min walk from South Kensington station. Staff were friendly...More

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
