“Best place to stay in London with a family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed here with out 2 year old for 14 days during the Olympics in a 1 bedroom apartment.
I was working at night and would often come home in the early hours of the morning.
The rooms are well constructed so any noise was contained and my family were able to sleep while I wound down in the other room.

Heaps of space, fantastic location, close to the South Kensington Tube, Tesco's & pubs.
Plus free wifi and friendly staff.

The only negs - the bed was a little hard (2 king singles pushed together).
The childs cot that we were charged 15 pounds a day for, was old and not very comfortable. Luckily the lounge in the living room transformed into a bed.
Also the heated towel rack in the bathroom was so hot I burnt my back on it getting out of the shower and I couldn't find an off or temp switch.

All small negatives in an otherwise excellent stay.

130 Queens Gate made a 2 week working trip with my family, just like home.

Room Tip: If you have 1 small child, a 1 bedder is fine as it's quite large and the child can sleep in the...

This was our first experience with 130 Queen’s Gate Apartments and it was very pleasant. The one bedroom apartment had all of the amenities that one would expect from a luxury apartment. The only reservation I would have is the living room area was somewhat small. The staff is probably the most important asset at 130 Queen’s Gate as from the manager to the porter they couldn’t do enough to ensure we had a wonderful stay

The apartment complex is well located between two tube stations and necessary services such as supermarket, money changer, dry cleaner, bank even hairdressers etc. Staff were very helpful; I did not experience poor customer service as described by some earlier reviewers. I have stayed numerous times in London hotels and have usually been disappointed with accommodation irrespective of how much I paid. Admittedly I am excluding the 5 star plus. No pokey rooms, noisy street, shabby décor or poor service at 130 Queensgate . The studio apartment was of generous proportion, with comfortable beds –we had king bed converted into two singles, there was ample sitting space, storage and a small well-appointed kitchen for short stay visit. Our room (710) was at the side of building removed from street noise
.
Only two criticisms - lack of reading light ( standing lamp) in sitting area – needed to use ceiling lights to read when on sofa which disturbed other person if sleeping . Also difficult to open windows to get in fresh air.

In short if this property fits your budget and you are looking for self-catering accommodation I highly recommend making a booking.

Room Tip: Book room not facing Quennsgate to avoid traffic noise. Apt 710 was on side of buidling -had no vi...

This is the second time I stayed here, and on both occasions I haven't been disappointed. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room and the facilities are of excellent standards, and the location is within a very respectful neighborhood. The tube stations of South Kensington and Gloucester Road nearby plus the bus routes makes it easy to move around the city and beyond.

Just got back from our family trip, where we spent 3 weeks at the apartment. It was an over all fantastic experience. The staff were friendly and always eager to help. The apartments are up-to-date with all facilities that one would need. With free Wi-Fi - which was great! The proximity of the apartment was also wonderful. 3 minutes from South Kensington tube station and 5 minutes away from Gloucester tube station. Both areas are infested with museums, cafes, restaurants and several connivence stores, all perfect for the stay. Well done 130 Queen's Gate!!! I will definitely want to go back!

We booked this studio apartment instead of the one we normally stay in in South Kensington/Chelsea as it was less expensive and closer to the tube station. Except for the excessively noisy family staying in the apartment above it was perfect. It is equidistant between two tube stations (two minutes walk from a great farmers market on Saturday mornings), much larger than any other studio we have stayed in, beautifully furnished and has all necessary conveniences. The staff are helpful and polite at all times and maid service is provided every day except Sunday. We will definately stay here on our next visit to London.

I was in London for a month for work during the Olympic Games. The stay at 130 Queen's Gate made me feel like I never left Chicago. The staff was super friendly and extremely accommodating. There was never a task that they didn't want to help out with. When had several units with our group and never once did we have to manage a thing. The staff took care of everything and would just make us aware of the groups whereabouts. I can't wait to come back to London, because 130 Queen's Gate is where you will find me.

Room Tip: All the rooms were amazing! I loved my flat because it had a balcony!
