    Great location as we were singing in the Royal Albert Hall. An older property but clean and comfortable. We had continental breakfast included which was adequate but you could upgrade to full cooked breakfast for £5 Lara on reception was very friendly and helpful.

    Very friendly staff, very attentive - especially attendant Irena. Delicious and hearty full English breakfast at a reasonable price for London. So near to the tube and Kensington area sites for tourism, in a quieter area not overrun by tourists, that Gainsborough is worth considering....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

    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
