          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

          Hello! I was wondering if there was a pool in this hotel... I'm checking in there in the next couple of days. I would like to know as soon as possible since this could affect one of my planned out days. Thank you!

          Hi,I didn't notice a pool, but I didn't look for one. Probably worth giving them a quick call to find out: 020 7937 7211. I found all the staff very helpful. Have a great trip :-)

          Myself and my daughter are booked into the Copthorne for 2 nights from 1st July as we are going to the Barclaycard Summertime ball on the Sunday, can you please advise if Hyde Parks is within walking distance of the hotel and is it a safe area to be walking back to the hotel after the concert finishes at 10.30pm. Thank you in advance.

          It's about a mile and a half. 35 minutes walking though easily done by bus. The walk is pleasant along the bottom of Hyde Park past the Albert Hall.
