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

No balconies. Yes, a keycard is required to operate the elevator. Awful hotel, probably the worst I have ever stayed in in London. Steer Clear.
