    South Kensington
    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

    mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
    such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

    This hotel is very bad at this. They messed our bill up, twice. If you have not got your money back in a week contact them and complain. I would never stay there again.
