Well the title just about sums it up I think! Who says its 4 star? More like 2 star!
Good points- great location and my room was very quiet, at the back with no view but this does keep traffic noise down to almost none!
Bad points- tiny tiny room. Bed linen dirty, bathroom tiles cracked and dirty, bathroom sink cabinet dirty. It's just all a bit old tired and grubby- won't be stopping for breakfast do cant comment on the food!
One to avoid at the general rate of ��180 a night, if I paid that I would be asking for a refund! Feel let down after paying just ��90 through Expedia secret hotel discount!!
- 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
