    South Kensington
    With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
    white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's

    superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
    Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely

    mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
    such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

    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.
