About the property

Studio Apartment, 1 Bath, In South Kensington near Kensington Gardens (Sleeps 3)

Welcome to the charming, compact 425-square feet Queensgate loft studio! Located in a beautiful white Victorian building in South Kensington, walk up a short flight of stairs and step into the building to see the original inlaid tile floors. Turn right down a short hallway and you're home. Enter this cosy apartment to find the bathroom on your left and kitchen directly ahead. Turn right and the dining and living room with large windows are straight ahead.

While compact the apartment has been beautifully remodeled, offers every comfort, sleeps up to 3 and receives excellent reviews. The price is great compared to small hotel rooms and you'll save a lot shopping at the nearby supermarket and dining in.

Please note: This is a loft-style studio so there is also a steep staircase with alternate risers leading up to the bed. The loft sleeping area is not recommended for elderly people and people with disabilities or any mobility issues.

Best of all, the location is ideal in the most sought-after neighborhood in London - where you can walk to museums, monuments, palaces, shopping and more! You'll be just a short stroll from Kensington Gardens and Museum Row, home to the Victoria & Albert Museum, Science Museum and the Natural History Museum. You'll also love being so close to the Gloucester Road Tube station where you can go direct and quickly reach the Theatre District for London's fabulous West End shows and shopping in Covent Garden. The Queensgate is a charming home away from home in London!

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is one of the loveliest and most sought-after areas in central London. Many Londoners would dream of living in this borough, which is home to some of the most famous neighbourhoods in London – Kensington, South Kensington, Notting Hill, Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Earl’s Court and Chelsea. These areas exude London charm with their rows of Victorian homes, peaceful garden squares and easy access to the beautiful Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. Visit world-class museums in South Kensington, stroll along the Thames in Chelsea, find treasures along the Portobello Road Antiques Market in Notting Hill, shop the biggest names in fashion in Knightsbridge, imagine the royal life at Kensington Palace or spend a leisurely afternoon in Kensington Gardens. With some of the best shopping spots in London, classic pubs and great restaurants, you’ll enjoy all the best of the London lifestyle in Kensington and Chelsea. Reach all the top sites in London quickly and easily on the London Underground or by simply hopping on one of the classic double-decker London buses. We fell in love with this charming area of London, and we think you will, too!

What makes this studio unique

You'll love the location just around the corner from Museum Row, home to the popular Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, the Science Museum and more. Stroll to nearby Kensington Gardens where you can picnic, walk, jog or lunch overlooking the Serpentine.

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

Perfect location I would return to this neighborhood in a heartbeat. The flat is well designed with a great bathroom and full kitchen. The apartment was extremely warm with no circulation. We were able to open window which helped but a little concerned as it was on street level without a screen. Two teenagers stayed on main level ,the beds were set up the entire time, difficult to reassemble and create living space along with area for clothing. Overall the location was awesome.

Great location, close to Hyde Park, V&A, Gloucester Road tube station (buy the Oyster card!). Many attractions are within walking distance. Enjoy a nice walk to Buckingham Palace, etc. via Hyde Park. Near several embassies, universities, safe to walk at night. First floor, easy in and out; no view, a bit of street noise but subsides at night. Stairs to bedroom were only used when we went to bed, so no issue and a good muscle stretch. No spices, etc. beyond salt/pepper. We were there five nights and didn't cook dinner once though. Made breakfasts. Nepresso and Bodum coffee maker; electric water. London Perfect equips you with some coffee pods, coffee, tea, jam and some nice welcoming items in the fridge. Easy grocery shopping at tube or walk to Whole Foods. The greeter, in our case, Daniel, is there to welcome you and explain everything, give you ideas, etc. We hit most of the 'triple triangles' on Rick Steve's list in four full days (there was a copy of the detailed Rick Steve's London in the flat). There's also a great map hanging on the wall, more London books, DVDs. Lushi drove us from/to airport; was well worth the cost. We were very pleased with the unit and will definitely be returning!

This is our second time working with London Perfect and the service and quality are as perfect as our first trip. From the smile and professionalism of Lushi who greeted us at the airport and took us into London, to the warmth and hospitality of Tessie who prepared Queensgate beautifully, to the informative introduction of Dan who pointed out all the features of Queensgate, our London stay over the Xmas holidays was wonderful. Queensgate is a relaxing retreat during busy days of exploring London. The studio is conveniently located close to museums, Kensington Park, Gloucester underground station (although we as a family of four took Uber everywhere); Waitrose supermarket (look for the daily reduced items), and restaurants on Gloucester Street (try Memories of India). The flat is perfect for a couple looking for a romantic hideaway; yet also comfortable for a petite family. We thoroughly enjoyed the tranquilness and safety of South Kensington and will stay again and recommend this flat and other similar London Perfect properties in this area. Thank you London Perfect!

This is our second time at a Perfect location ( Paris 2013) very nice accomidations. Nicely appointed and amentities, ie soap, coffee,paper towels, etc. We are very comfortable in London, so we did not need to use the office staff, but its nice to know they are there if needed. I strongly rec'd using their car service, its just so easy and they bring you right into apt. So much nicer than a hotel, coffee in your PJ's, a kithchen to make snacks, etc. I will def use again.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Queensgate. While we chose it for proximity to the V&A museum, its Tube links were great, making it easy to get around London. A bonus was being on the same Tube line as Kings Cross for ease of access to St Pancras and the Eurostar. The apartment was well appointed, and we self-catered using some of the local shops, particularly Partridges in Gloucester Road. The washing machine was also well used! The staircase was a bit of a challenge, which is something less agile guest may wish to consider. All in all, we recommend this apartment as a pleasant place for a stay in London.

We absolutely loved it! Apartment was lovely...decorated beautifully in every way (and I am an Interior Designer)! Location was perfect...the street is beautiful and safe! But mostly the service from London Perfect was just that... perfect! They were professional in every way and went well above what was expected. I would absolutely recommend them (and I travel ALOT)! We also used Lushi's driving service and he was charming and prompt. Totally a great experience!
