          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

          Beds are very comfortable and rooms very quiet. We slept very well while we were there. An advise: check that your room doesn't overlook the kitchen machinery.
