          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

          I would like to personally give a great thank you to your employee Daniel Neves. He was really polite and helpful, a good example of empathic and friendly customer service. We checked out late after a bad experience in a nearby hotel and he was really helpful and the check in very smooth.

          Not a lot of room but we squeezed in a foldaway bed which was practically against the bed with just enough to walk sideways and about 1 metre on other side.

          We will arrive before check in time, are we able to leave our luggage and return later to check in?

          Yes, they are most accommodating with holding luggage before check in and after check out.
