Great location for the cooler months”
FANTASTIC LOCATION
This is a nice boutique hotel. The rooms are more like 2 - 3 stars, but the location is fantastic. The only major down side is that there is no air-conditioning, so being their in August was very hot. They did give me a fan and we could open the windows a slight bit, but with no cross-breeze, it was pretty hot. I'd definitely stay here again, but only in the winter, fall, or early spring!

Hotel OK, good location but overpriced”
Location, location and location
Stayed only one night. Staff were helpful and the location was perfect for me. I know London well and this is why I chose it. I understand that London is expensive but I really felt that 144 GBP / approx 200 USD was really overpriced as they didn't even throw in breakfast for this price. A cup of coffee and a few slices of bread and jam would not have broken the bank. The room was OK but small. Was a twin but the beds were together like a double and it could do with being freshened up a bit. Nothing wrong with it really and would stay again if I could get it for a better price, but 200 USD a night without breakfast was just overpriced in my opinion.

Reasonable hotel for a reasonable price”
Extremely helpful and pleasant staff. Excellent location . Clean comfortable rooms
It was a pleasant stay . The deluxe double room, though not large was fine. The single room was a refurbished too with ensure shower room. The room was very small but clean and pleasant. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. A decent hotel for a decent price I would say. Should I need to be in the same area I would have no problem with staying there again.

Location, responsive staff
It is located only a few minutes from South Kensington tube station and within walking distance of the Natural History Museum, the V&A Museum and even the Harrods. Besides, it is in the quiet naighbourhood. I would recommend it if you don't mind the small size of the rooms.

Superbement bien placé”
Emplacement personnel hall d'entrée
L'emplacement à côté des musées et du Royal Albert Hall ainsi que une station de métro est parfait. Le hall d'entrée donne le change mais dans le détail la chambre que nous avons occupée laisse passer de l'air et la décoration date un peu. Peinture écaillée et bruit terrible de ventilation dans la salle de bain. Impossible de n'allumer la lumière que dans la salle de bain, il faut que toute la chambre soit allumée. Salle du petit déjeuner confortable. English Breakfast correct mais un peu cher dans l'ensemble. Le prix global est justifié par l'emplacement de l'hôtel.

Ottima posizione, camera molto piccola”
Location, camera pulita
Ottima location vicina a metropolitana e a parecchie attrazioni. La camera singola è davvero minuscola, non c'era nemmeno il comodino vicino al letto. Il riscaldamento era costituito da un termosifone portatile che quasi non ci stava nella stanza. Camera e bagno vecchiotti e assai poco funzionali ma puliti.

tranquillo in ottima posizione”
posizione strategica per la fermata metro vicinissima e per la possibilità di raggiungere anche a piede molti punti d'interesse.
scarsissima la cura e l'attenzione nell'arredo basta poco per far sì che tutto sia più accogliente si avverte infatti trascuratezza. Come al solito nel bagno manca il bidet, per noi italiani "sporcaccioni" inaccettabile, ma lo sapevamo.
Abbiamo soggiornato al The Gainsborough dal 29.12 al 06.01. E' in una bella zona rilassante e tranquilla e allo stesso tempo ben servita. Infatti si trova molto vicino alla fermata della metro (linee gialla verde e blu) comodissima, a due passi c'è il V&A Museum e il museo di Scienze Naturali, in 10/15 munuti a piedi si raggiunge la zona di Harrods infine nei paraggi dell'Hotel vi sono alcuni localini, non troppo cari, dove poter fare colazione la mattina (in hotel è troppo cara e non era compresa nel prezzo) e cenare la sera senza dover tornare in centro. Qui il ns soggiorno è stato gradevole anche se ci aspettavamo forse di più. L'albergo è vecchiotto e modesto nell'arredamento anche un po' raffazzonato ma accettabile, il livello di pulizia è sufficiente. Il personale è gentile e disponibile. La ns. stanza tripla al quarto piano (1 letto matrimoniale e 1 singolo) era sufficientemente comoda, ma decisamente gelida appena arrivati. Se vi capita accendete voi stessi subito il termosifone appena entrate!!!! Aveva una brutta vista sull'interno, ma si è rivelata una vera sorpresa, quando, all'ultimo dell'anno abbiamo scoperto che dalla ns. finestra si poteva vedere in lontananza il London Eye illuminato e soprattutto i bellissimi fuochi d'artificio. Così ha guadagnato 1000 punti!!!!!!!
