          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

          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.

          I noted your Basic Double Room size from Agoda is 25 square metres but from Booking-com is 17 square metres, please advise why there's such a difference and which one is correct, thanks.

          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?
