    Excellent hotel in an excellent location. Staff were just fantastic . Be aware that a small double really is a very very small double ! but the staff and general experience of the hotel made up for that.

    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

    Definitely NOT enough room in a Deluxe to put an extra bed. We just had room for two good size suitcases and still be able to get around easily! I would go for the Studio. But highly recommend the hotel.
