          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
          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

          Hi, we stayed 11-15 June (last week) and the security card deposit of 50£ per night has still not been refunded as it has been quite a few days already (we were told by reception it would be refunded instantly upon checkout). When will this occur?

          This hotel is very bad at this. They messed our bill up, twice. If you have not got your money back in a week contact them and complain. I would never stay there again.
          Is it not hard to get a cab from the hotel to Heathrow airport, and how much do we have to pay.
