          white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
          easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with

          Are you still charging for wifi and the use of the pool and gym? I read some comments about joining a frequent guest program and those charges would be waived. Have reservations for July 2017 but if everything is extra, I am wondering if staying there is such a good idea.
