About Petra Fellows

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

Petra Fellows purchased this Apartment in 2013

Why Petra Fellows chose South Kensington

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!

What makes this Apartment unique

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!

Plus, conveniently located near Tube stations. The owners are very nice and responsive. I would definitely stay here again.

                                                                      Great find in a great location

The apartment is a 5 minute walk from south Kensington tube station which made touring around very easy. The apartment was comfortable, very clean and tidy with no street noise during the night. I highly recommend it.

There is very little road noise as it is in the lower level, and yet it gets natural light. The owners are very accommodating and I would stay there again.

                                                                      Excellent, just what we wanted. Great area and close to museums and the Tube

A short walk to South Kensington tube stop and you can be anywhere in London in minutes. Local area teeming with pubs and restaurants and grocery stores. Check in was timely and I would highly recommend Petra's flat.
