“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Really love the self contained aparthotel. Rooms are small but it comes with superb facilities (washer/dryer etc) & excellent amenities. Its well designed and very stylish! Quiet location and a short few minutes walk to many restaurants at Bayswater
Its a short 5 mins walk to the tube station ( Bayswater and Queensway) The bus stop in front of Queensway takes you to Oxford Street

Thumbs up to the complimentary HIGH SPEED wifi! Will stay again. A gem in central London

Having stayed twice before in the Space Apart Hotel, we knew what to expect and were not disappointed. The hotel is well located in a quiet square but is handy for bus and tube travel. Our room was stylish and comfortable with good facilities. There are plenty of restaurants, pubs and shops nearby. Staff are friendly and helpful. An excellent choice for a stay in London.

Having been disappointed with other apartment hotels, this example of its genre was a welcome change. Located overlooking a quiet square, I got a couple of undisturbed nights' rest. Neighbouring properties are being renovated, and its great to see these well proportioned and well constructed old buildings being brought back to a good state of repair.

I stayed a couple of nights in the smallest studio room. The fixtures, fitting and equipment were well looked after, and good quality. Kitchen was fairly well equipped (perhaps a large bowl and chopping board please?). Space was well designed, and with only a handful of rooms on each floor, any noise from neighbours is very limited.

Near to shops, and two underground stations (Queensway is only a few steps beyond Bayswater , and is on the Central Line).

How about a small selection of tea & coffee to help a traveller on arrival - and a cloth to help keep the kitchen clean? The bathroom products are spot on.

Stayed there for four days and really it was great! The superior studio was really super, very spacious, modern and clean, with sophisticated shower and bed. The lighting was perfect, even special reading lights! Toiletries were ample and good quality. The room is equipped with everything you need to live in London, even for a long time! The receptionists were very polite and helpful. The area is great, it offers a wide selection of shops and restaurants.

Stayed for two nights on my own in a standard studio and was really happy with everything, would not hesistate to stay again. The room was a really decent size, styled really nicely and was clean and well looked after. Kitchen area was great and fully equipped and having a dishwasher is a great bonus. Shower was powerful, bed comfy, heating efficient - all in all a fab room. Its literally 4 minutes to bayswater tube and an extra 1-2 minute walk to queensway, so great location. Staff were lovely and helpful too.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Great little apartment near Bayswater underground station. Staff very helpful and friendly. The apartment although small was large enough. The bed was comfortable. Because the area where the apartment is located is so quiet and peaceful it was possible to sleep with the window open rather than living in air conditioning which is nice if you like fresh air like I do.
It was great to be able to cook meals and prepare breakfast as we liked. As my wife and I had been traveling for 7 weeks it was nice not to have to go out and eat at restaurants for a change.
The dishwasher made doing the dishes an easy chore.

Room Tip: We were on an upper floor which allowed good breezes.

We stayed in a studio. The studio turned out to be very small. This hotel has a wonderful location and the staff there was very helpful. There were several problems in our apartment:
- The shower did not have safety bars and the floor there was very slippery.
- There was no table. A folder table there would be very handy.
- Window curtains did not work properly.
