“Great experience at 130 Queensgate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

I stayed for a week at 130 Queensgate in November 2011 on the spur of the moment when a different apartment I had rented from a private rental agent turned out to be a disappointment. The staff at 130 Queensgate were able to accommodate me very quickly at an excellent rate for the K&C neighborhood. The studio apartment at 130 Queensgate was beautiful - recently renovated, all modern conveniences and exceptionally clean. The location is fantastic as it is equidistant to Grosvenor Rd and S. Kensington tube stations which are both on several Tube lines including the Picadilly line to Heathrow. The apartments are also literally around the corner from the Natural Science and V&A museums. There were 2 grocery stores at the Grosvenor Rd tube station which helped reduce food costs. Since the apartments have combo washer/dryers, you don't have to bring as much clothing with you - just buy some detergent at the grocery store. I have stayed at another apartment in the K&C area on a previous trip and 130 Queensgate definitely was the better option. I will definitely stay at 130 Queensgate on future trips because of the location and the fantastic modern decor and cleanliness of the place.

Our big families have booked 7 rooms and stayed there to celebrate New Year in London after performing Umrah at Mekkah. The room's size are suitably perfect to accommodate all the kids members. The rooms are clean and neat. All of equipments (TV, hi-fi etc) are perfectly installed and we could enjoy it. The apartment have large windows to be filled by sunlight and sometimes we opened to feel the fresh air and sound of expensive cars (porsche, ferrari etc) were running in front of the apartment. Very entertaining. All kitchens are new and high-tech which our mother-in-law was very happy and cook the food for us everyday. We will never forget the excellent experience staying at 130 Queen's Gate. Definitely we will stay here again when we visit London next occasion. Ogi R from Indonesia

We were more than satisfied about the appartment we had. Unfortunately we couldn't use the balcony because the weather was bad, but of course they couldn't influence that:-)
We can only recommend them.

My extended family (10 adults, 7 kids) stayed here for a week in December. Easy to walk to museums, restaurants, buses, subway, grocery stores, etc. Beds and layout of each apartment are different so ask to see a few rooms if you have a choice of apartments. We all stayed on second floor which had high ceilings. Apartments at front of building have large windows and lots of sunlight, but significant street noise (especially morning rush hour). Apartments at the back of the building have less sunlight but are very quiet. We stayed in 203, a one-bedroom with queen size bed and a fold-out sofa bed (queen size) in living room. Sofa bed mattress is very lumpy, although my 6 year old didn't mind. Apartment 202 was the largest 2-bedroom I saw. Master bedroom had king size bed (which could be broken into two twin beds) and its own bathroom with shower stall. Second bedroom had queen size bed. Second bathroom had tub-shower combo. Room 207 was a 2-bedroom with a king size bed. Second bedroom had a twin size bed in a room hardly larger than the bed itself. All kitchens are new and have regular sized appliances - refrigerator, separate freezer, sink, stove/range top, electric oven, microwave oven, electric tea kettle, toaster and dishwasher. There is a French press coffee maker, but not a drip coffee maker (like in the US) or Nespresso. There are plates, bowls, silverware, cooking utensils, pots and pans. Kitchen is definitely big enough to cook in - we cooked breakfast every morning. There is someone at the front desk of the hotel 24 hours a day. Front door is always locked and you get buzzed in. The neighborhood seemed very safe.

This hotel opened in October 2011 and is quite simply a delight. Chic and discrete entrance, a five min walk from South Kensington and Gloucester Rd, extremely spacious and modern apartments in immaculate condition, flat screen tvs in the living room and bedroom, great sound-system throughout, in fact - just about everything you could possibly ask for! I would not stay anywhere else in London.

We recently stayed for ten nights in one of their apartments. It was spacious, well appointed, and very clean. The staff were at all times helpful and courteous. The location is superb. Probably the best such facility we have found. It is not inexpensive, but provides good value for the money.

Room Tip: Request one of the larger units.
