4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Well decorated and modern, we had a pleasant stay, even if the hotel looks more like a 3 stars hotel than a 4 stars one. The room was small but modern and quiet with a nice view over the street. The breakfast buffet is very good, mix of English and continental. The only negative point is that the tube station... More

This hotel has an ideal location. Opposite the Natural History museum and the V&A Museum, not far from tube station and Royal Albert Hall, great bus service. The hotel is lovely, the rooms and bathrooms are small but not minute, but they are spotless and modern. Have stayed in this hotel twice, would return. The staff are ok but definitely... More

Our children liked this hotel the best of our entire two week, four hotel vacation in England and France. We had a comfortable "family" room with one king size bed and two twin beds in a generous space. The bathroom was tiny, though. Hyde Park with Kensington Palace is just a short walk away. The breakfast was great, with fresh... More

We've just spent a night at this hotel. We chose it because of its location which is convenient for museums, Albert Hall and parks. Our room was quite small as too was the bathroom. It was well appointed, although we found the wooden floor slightly bizarre, but was perfectly clean and comfortable - more like an upmarket B&B rather than... More

Just back from a wonderful stay in london where we stayed at the Queen's Gate. Location was amazing, right near the park, major attractions and shops.

Stayed for one night for a show in the Royal Albert Hall, wouldn't go back. Rooms are ok, quite average and one smelled really damp when we walked in. Breakfast was the worst I've ever had, powered scrambled eggs, no fresh coffee, all from a machine. Considering the price we paid to stay here (£220 each), it was a complete... More

This property is well located, close to restaurants and shopping, and to two Underground stations. We had two rooms - one for us, one for the kids. Our room was especially small, particularly the bathroom. Our room had the equivalent of a queen sized bed which took up most of the space in the room. The bathroom was arranged in... More

What I needed was a hotel close enough to the V&A Museum, the tube station, Hyde Park and Harrods. Without spending a fortune, The Queen`s Gate Hotel was the perfect choice. What makes the location even better is the fact that the area is really quiet (our room window overlooked the back street behind the hotel). So why my rating... More

No-one to greet you or help you up the the front steps with the bags even though the two reception staff had no one at the desk that they were dealing with. They advertise free WIFI and that's because it doesn't work! Some very quirky things to deal with. We were taken to a twin room when we had booked... More

Very convenient location (ca. 7 minutes walking to tube station), quite nice interior. The standard room is quite spacious, with good bed and quite air conditioning. The bathroom is not that spacious, some of the facitlities need cleaning/replacement (solid shower curtain, for example). There are EU power sockets in the room - so you do not need to use adaptors... More
