    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
    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

    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.

    During our stay WiFi was free but a day rate charged for the spa facilities we loved it for its location and very helpful staff.
