Good hotel if the price is good too

You can tell this used to be a four-star hotel but the place is getting a bit run down. The floor of my bathroom was so badly cracked the tiles were turning to powder, and the whole building needs attention. Even the Union Jack hanging out front is old and tattered! But it was clean, well located and almost a bargain when I visited, so if the price was cheaper than the surrounding hotels I'd probably stay there again.

Great if you're not near the school

My girlfriend and I stayed for 4 days in a double room. Very short on any kind of amenities or space, and we had a room right next to a noisy school playground that made the room unbearable from 9-5. What made up for that was that the staff were very helpful and the location of the hotel is superb for the price. Right in the heart of Kensington with restaurants, museums and trains all nearby. We had a great time. So yes, not the greatest hotel I've ever stayed in but if you're more about exploring London than staying in your hotel room I'd say the Gainsborough was good value for money considering all other hotels in the area are at least twice the price.
