Anyone stay at the Gallery Hotel
We're going to London in June. We have reservations at the Gallery Hotel in Kensington. Has anyone stayed there? What did you think?

Yes, we stayed there and it was perfectly fine. The staff was very helpful, the rooms were decorated lovely, although it seemed that the artwork did not go with the decor, if that is a problem for you. Bathrooms large and modern, lovely breakfast room and breakfast, close to the South Kensington tube. Internet access YES YES YES <BR><BR>We did have a little trouble finding it (we walked from the tube station) as there are two streets with very similar names (Queen and Queensberry or something similar). Also coming out of the tube station, with jet lag, we got a little disorientated so don't be afraid to ask directions as the tube station itself is in the middle of almost a circular road. The Hotel is not very far at all from the tube station.<BR>

Just returned from a 5-night stay at the Gallery. We paid 145 pounds/night but did a special where we got one night free. My parents smaller room was 120 pounds/night. <BR><BR>I would recommend with one caveat on the hotel service/management. It seemed rather disorganized, and was difficult to order room service, or get our laundry back, or get the room vacuumed the day we checked in, although otherwise it was clean. For that price I would expect a nightly refresh of the room, but that was not included.<BR><BR>My summary would be that it is a lovely hotel, nicely decorated, very good breakfast, close to tube (S. Kensington) and Hyde Park. Only negative was the service, which may simply be poor management. The Gainsborough across the street (same ownership) seemed to get more attention from the staff.
