The basic premise of a hotel is that you can get a good nights rest. Unfortunately this is not the case here. There is a private club next door which operates next door and music can be heard booming out until 6am. I really feel for the staff because all were lovely and courteous, however when at 2am they moved me to another room where the music could be heard less, no double glazing meant I could each and every car outside as well as people's conversations on the pavement below. The decor is classic however it's now looking a little run down and scruffy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
