I stayed one night in single room. Room was apparently freshly refurbished with new TV and comfortable bed. Great room service and staff was very helpfull. The location is unbeatable the hotel is just in front of museums and 3 min walk from tube station....More
The best thing about our room were the curtains! The Georgian high ceilings are lovely but the whole place is tatty. The reception area looks good but looking past that the stair/landing carpet is old and stained, the wall paper is faded and peeling in...More

150 € for a double per night and we got a Room underground full of mould and Smell. We have been moved but only after a nerve crisis.

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.

I am not sure but having looked at the map it seems that the Dominion Theatre is in Westminster and the hotel is in Kensington near The Serpentine. It would be at least a tube ride away and not within walking distance
