Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Our short term London apartment rental sleeps up to three people and is located in Kensington, one of the most sought after areas of London and home to Royalty, celebrities, sports stars and politicians.

Walk to Kensington Palace where Princess Diana lived, to Hyde Park, Speaker's Corner, Buckingham Palace, The Princess Diana Fountain, Harrods, to the trendy shops and restaurants of Fulham Road, The King's Road, Brompton Cross and High Street Kensington, including the designer shops on Walton Street, Sloane Street and Fulham Road. You are five minutes walk to Gloucester Road Tube or to South Kensington Tube, which are direct to Heathrow and to the Theatre District.

Walk up the original stone steps of this grand Victorian building; it was once a single, large home but has since been converted into apartments. The short term apartment rental is located to the right and down a hallway from the Central Lobby. The flat has been meticulously remodelled and is furnished to the highest standards to provide an elegant and comfortable stay in London.

Enter to find the bathroom to your left and the kitchen directly ahead with a beautifully refinished oak wood floor that is complimented with the blond-oak kitchen cabinets and the cream color walls. This theme is carried throughout the apartment to enhance its space and give it an airy feel. The bathroom to your left is no exception. Built-in cabinets below the sink and lots of counter space. Find a full sized shower as well as the many chrome fixtures.

Proceed into the kitchen and the apartment details continue to please. It has been totally remodeled and decorated with halogen lighting and pale glass mosaic tiles behind the cabinets. The kitchen is small, but offers plenty of counter top space and every modern appliance you would need; full convection oven,4 burner oven, stove, and refrigerator, you’ll find a washing machine, toaster, espresso maker, microwave, drip coffeemaker, pots and pans, and top-of-the-line dishes and utensils—everything you’ll need to prepare meals. The apartment angles to the right as you exit the kitchen, and immediately on your right you find a small dining nook. It has a glass topped table and leather dining chairs with two extra folding chairs in a cupboard if more seating is needed.

The cozy living room has a long modern sofa that we had made for us in Italy. The sofa converts to a single bed at night and is comfortable for lounging or napping during the day. Enhancing the room’s size are an enormous theatre set painting on the left wall and the 12-foot-long hanging silk curtains in taupe framing the large, stacked windows.

Large,ceiling-height windows soar behind the sofa, making the apartment very light. Our guests tell us the photos don't do justice to the wonderful feeling of space and light you have when you are relaxing in the living room.

The immense size and height of the ceiling allowed for the construction of a mezzanine loft for sleeping quarters. And in order to conserve space, we constructed a contemporary style staircase with alternate risers so it is more natural to climb. It’s a clever and space-saving idea, more comfortable than a spiral staircase. The mezzanine features an extra wide queen-sized bed and cupboards, and there are additional cupboards under the stairs, in the entryway, and in the eating nook, so there is plenty of storage space.

Further enhancing this beautiful London apartment are the original Victorian oil paintings on the ceiling which have been restored and are historically listed. And, to top it off, we’ve installed a beautiful French chandelier. We also provide a TV with all the English channels, dual standard DVD player, and stereo so you can bring your own music and films to enjoy. You’ll also find free high-speed Internet access so you can catch up on your emails.

The location is unmatched; step outside and find Kensington Gardens one minute away on your left and Museum Row to your right. There are tons of shops and restaurants in the neighborhood and the famous shopping of Kensington and Knightsbridge is a short walk away.

If you have any questions or would like to enquire about availability please email and we'll get right back to you!

From recent guests:

'I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed our stay at the Queensgate apartment. Never have I seen such beautifully inventive use of space! Everything was absolutely comfortable, exceptionally beautiful, and truly perfect. As in all of the ParisPerfect and LondonPerfect apartments in which we’ve stayed, Madeline's sense of design and hospitality is awesome. Thanks for the opportunity to 'live' in London.'

I travel to London on a regular basis and having found the London Perfect group of apartments I can try different ones. The apt was perfect. Very modern and up to date in the decoration, extremely confortable, very clean and very well equipped. The location, we could not ask for better. Chelsea is a beautiful area. We could walk to everything. Good boutiques, nice bakeries, excellent restaurants and very safe. It is nice to stay in a beautiful environment. One of my stays I will try to include Paris, too!

London and then on to Paris. Great combination and easy to do with the Eurostar. We enjoyed the apartment and its location. We kept very busy trying to see all the sights. Good to return home to our little spot at the end of the day. Thank you for all...

Lovely stay at the Queensgate Studio Loft

  • Submitted: Jul 1, 2013
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
I had a most lovely stay at The Queensgate Studio Loft. It was clean and contained all one would need for a pleasant stay. It was just the right sized flat and most conveniently located to museums, shops, and the tube. As well, it was a good neighborhood that was located to that oh, so wonderful park. I would certainly contact London Perfect (and any of the "Perfects") when traveling, as the staff made it so simple. Thanks Ed and staff!

"
We have returned home after a simply wonderful week in London. We loved the Queen’s Gate apartment. What a clever use of space! It was very comfortable for the two of us and we got the hang of the stairs right away. Your restaurant recommendations were great. We loved both Clark's and L'etranger...delicious dinners at both. We'd also like to recommend to you a shop for prepared food....Ottolenghi....on Holland Street right off of Kensington Church Street. I was given one of his cookbook

"My 19 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Queen's Gate. We couldn't have stayed in a better location and the apartment was lovely. It had everything we needed and the booklet of information came in very handy. We tried many of the suggested restaurants and enjoyed all of them. We liked being able to walk out the door and walk in any direction to get to many restaurants, shopping and tourist attractions.

We didn't make a lot of use of the kitchen but it was nice to have the facilities on the few days that we just wanted to grab a bite to eat between excursions.

We highly recommend booking Lushi for your ride from the airport. It was nice to speak with a local upon arrival and he was very courteous and friendly. We hope to stay at the Queen's Gate again during our next visit to London."

"We were extremely pleased with the flat. The location was outstanding - close to the subway, stores, restaurants, parks and museums. The flat was beautifully decorated, very clean and had everything we needed including loads of information about London and our neighbourhood.

My husband and I and our 12 year old daughter would definitely rent this flat again and we will most certainly recommend London Perfect to others traveling to London. I wish we had known about your rentals in Paris as the place we rented from another company was not nearly as nice as our Queen's Gate home."

"We enjoyed the Queens Gate apartment very much. It had everything we needed and was delightfully decorated. The stairs were a bit tricky, but other than that, it was great. Close to the tube and lots of places were within walking distance. Madelyn sent us tons of helpful information and we were able to use our iPad with the WiFi access. Loved it!"

"This is a lovely flat in a fantastic location. Two tube stops within extremely easy walking distance (< 5 min)and black cabs pass frequently. The loft is exactly as depicted on the website -- clean, compact, and perfect for a vacation stay. The linens are great (towels are John Lewis), and even shampoo, conditioner, and a hair dryer are supplied! Security is also good. I will definitely stay here again, and will recommend it to friends. I will also recommend Lushi\'s car service for transport to and from Heathrow -- how wonderful to be picked up at the door and not have to haul bags on a train!"
