It wasn't cheap, but it was totally worth it. Everything a business traveler needs, and then more.

I like apartment hotels because they are more than just a sleeping room. You have a kitchen, a small sitting area, and all the utilities and facilities you can think of. So I'm always interested when such apartment hotels feature high in the rankings.

But when I reached this gem of a hotel in South Kensington, I was in for a treat. The place was huge, modern and fit for both business and family. I got a basement flat with a double bed. When you enter there's a foyer leading to a corridor with living room, kitchen and bathroom branching to the right, and the main sleeping area at the end. The living room features a huge LCD, several tables and lots of couches and chairs, with access to a balcony. The kitchen is small but highly functional, with everything you'd need. The bathroom is really nice, except for the fact I prefer a shower unit to a bath. The bedroom was excellent, generous and with lots of storage space.

Service was OK, but not too exciting. There wasn't breakfast. The room had free wifi and the hotel has a small gym with complementary water bottles. Location is rather good: South Kensington is quite close to Hyde Park and has lots of museums and dining options, so if you're not focused on a specific city-center location, it's quite good.

130 Queensgate proved very comfortable, convenient and welcoming for our recent stay in London. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was comfortable, spacious and exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was well-equipped, the sitting room cosy and homely and the bedrooms restful. The only problem we encountered was that the hot water could be a little temperamental. The engineers were in looking at this the day we left. We would strongly recommend travellers to stay at 130 Queensgate.

I and my family have lived there for more than 3 months, excellent experiences and services we had received. Thank you for all the team. I recommend my friends to stay there when they visit London. 130 Queen's gate apartment is well located in the business center South Kensington, it's easy to find the restaurants, supermarket, cafe bars and the other service stores.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less A/C unit noise.

Well furnished and modern apartments. Fresh nicely spacious very comfortable apartments. Well located near the station and busses as well as a taxi rank but a classy street very quite. Close to Natural history museum a literal 4 min walk the science museum, Royal Albert Hall and the V&A . Harrods is a 17 min walk or an easy one tube station away . The apartment was well serviced well done to the housekeeping department . The only draw back was reservations they seem to change the price every time we inquired and although we told them we where five people they did not somehow convey this to the apartment and we had to pay other fee for the sofa couch to be made up . It was also hard to communicate with them about our requirements and questions we had . The manager Yoosef as very helpful friendly and went out of his way to assist us . He has a great team all friendly and a beautiful stay would definitely return

We found this apartment very comfortable, well equipped, and the staff friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. When one of the lights was not working the maintenance man was there to mend it within five minutes. We will come again.

This business will go far. Excellent service and far better value for money than a hotel. Ideally located for restaurants and the tube to Heathrow. The next time I'm in London, it's a no brainer, 130 Queen's Gate every time.

Room Tip: Each is different so take a look first
