The picture you see above is of Queens Gate, where the studio is located!

Petra Fellows purchased this apartment in 2013

This studio is great if you need somewhere to stay temporarily rather than pay london rates for hotels - The studio is setup so that you may work directly from the studio with easy access to all work locations in Greater London. Alternatively if you are between homes and need somewhere to stay in the interim or simply want a great budget break in London!

Location! Location! Location!

Bars, Restaurants, Clubs, Museums, Victoria and Albert and the Natural History Museum, Hyde Park, Kings Road, Holland Park and HARRODS all in walking distance - what more could you ask for, why waste money on tubes, buses and taxi's when you can walk everywhere!

An Excellent Choice!

  • 5 of 5
I have just returned from the best of all my visits to London, and a good part of it was due to having such a pleasant place to stay. You cannot beat the location, a very safe neighborhood with all types of restaurants and shops AND only a block away from the South Kensington Tube station (which has 3 major lines). I recommend Aux Merveilleux de Fred at 88 Old Brompton Rd. (one block away from the apartment) for brioche for breakfast. The studio is more spacious than the photos show (lots of room for our 3 suitcases) and it was a nice surprise to find such a large bathroom. One evening it was warm (not hot) and it was so nice to be able to open the French doors to the patio and sleep with a soft breeze instead of turning on the fan. It is a very quiet patio, and we could not hear anything from the street. Petra is a wonderful host and left milk, coffee, wine, etc., for us. This will be my #1 choice for my next visit to London. Thank you Petra!

Lovely studio apartment!

  • 5 of 5
Lovely property - very well kitted out. Comfy large bed, a terrace to sit out in and very quiet. I was surprised how quiet the apartment was, considering it's a busy area. Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. It was a very pleasant change from the aparthotels that can be quite impersonal and lacking in any personality. What was an extra lovely touch was that Petra had kindly included some luxury extras that were very much appreciated after a long day of travelling to get to London - very thoughtfully done...red wine, cookies, shower gels, facial wipes. I was very impressed with this. The location is great - 15 mins from Hyde Park and a 5 min walk to supermarkets, tube and cafes and bars. So all in all, I would highly recommend this property and for me, it was very good value. Thank you Petra! Really enjoyed.

Lovely flat in a good part of London

  • 4 of 5
My friend and I shared this flat for three weeks while vacationing in London. The flat was clean, easy to get to, and was in a good part of town. I never felt unsafe walking around the area (South Kensington) and everything was easily in walking distance. The Tube station is about 5-10 minutes walking distance and across the street from the station there is a Starbucks and a Pret-A-Manger. There's a small Tesco down the street as well as a bank and an assortment of small restaurants, shops, and bars. Everything is extremely accessible. The science museum and a few others are extremely close and if it's chilly outside, you can get to them from the Tube station. Marli and Petra were very helpful and friendly. The only downsides of the flat is that it is quite expensive, (but that's to be expected in London, especially in this area) and it is very small. It's one small room with a kitchen area, desk, and sofa bed and then a small bathroom. The pictures make it look bigger than it is because the sofa bed isn't pulled out, but the bed takes up most of the space. I would absolutely stay at this property again and I'd recommend it to anyone who has a little bit of extra money to spend. Last thought- I wouldn't suggest staying here if there are more than two of you and/or if you're not okay with staying in very close quarters to the person you're travelling with.

Perfect South Kensington Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying in Petra's studio for several weeks. I found it to be absolutely perfect!

The space is small (ok, I'm American) but comfortable, quiet and clean. It is newly remodeled so everything is new and in perfect condition. The neighborhood is very safe and I was always comfortable walking in the evening. This place everything you could ever need for a London getaway.

The location is excellent. It is less than two blocks from two Tube stations which quickly and economically take you anywhere in London. It is also a great spot to walk from and only a short distance from Hyde Park. There are several food stores nearby and a Whole Foods (not a great Whole Foods) within easy walking distance.

Within several blocks are numerous great restaurants from fine dining to Bosphorus Kebabs - my personal takeaway favorite.

Petra was an incredible help to me and was always right there when I had any questions or needed any type of assistance.

This studio is a gem in a sea of available London rentals. I only hope too many people don't book it so it is still available next time I am in town!

Perfect London Studio

  • 5 of 5
Petra's Studio is fantastic. My wife and I were looking for reasonable and convenient accommodations which it was, along with clean. We were expecting space to be extremely small by US standards, but actually more spacious than the photos suggested and was just perfect. The bathroom was larger then experienced in our stays in Europe. The little private courtyard behind the place is a nice feature and we enjoyed it for the natural light as we visited in February.

If you stay long enough to do laundry, note that there is a laundrette just around the corner, which we learned you need four 1 pound coins to do wash along with several 20 pence coins for the dryer. It was not open 24 hours (rather something like 8 to 8).

The location is amazing as it is perfectly located between two underground stops that serve the Piccadilly, District, and Circle lines and get you to all the attractions. Being on the Piccadilly line made the apartment convenient to and from the airport. During our week stay we visited many sights, and nearly all were accessible from the South Kensington underground stop which was about a 5-7 min walk.

Petra was easy and pleasant to communicate with, and e-mailed us information about west-end shows and other local items of interest. What was especially nice is that she met us at the under ground station and walked us to the apartment while pointing out some nearby restaurants and grocery stores.
