Spent a couple of nights at the Gainsborough Hotel London. The location is great, you have the tube nearby, busses, taxis and you can walk to museums. I went to the V & A Museum for a specific exhibition, it was only a couple of minutes walk. There are lots of restaurants and bars close by.
The room is small, the bathroom is also small but adequate, the view was of a roof top and back walls of buildings.
The staff are efficient but not warmly friendly. The bar is very small, i didn't bother with it.
There's not a lot to say about the Gainsborough Hotel really, it was ok for the time I spent there, the most it has going for it is the location.
