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 Kensington & Chelsea

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have loved staying here and appreciate all the welcoming touches such as the wine, biscuits, body wash, etc. This is the perfect place to stay for a visit to London. Thank you for letting us arrive early and working so quickly to get it ready for us.

Wonderful flat with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Clean well equipped lower level flat was perfect for our first visit to London. 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.

Loved the quiet location with easy access to the tube!

  • 5 of 5

This is easily a 5-star location due to it being clean, quiet, easy tube access to lines that run 24/7, and easy access to markets and restaurants.

My wife and I stayed here from Sep 13-19. The place was clean and quiet. Wifi worked perfectly. 2 of 3 heater pipes worked... not sure if the third is supposed to work ? Didn't need it this time of the year, but it was good to have the main 1 to keep the room warmer while sleeping, and the bathroom one for the morning shower. The place is great for 1 adult, or 2 adults that sleep together.

We used the kitchen to make breakfast a few times, and it is small but good. All serving and cooking supplies are provided. There are even 2 fridges, although we only needed 1. If you like coffee... they provide a french press and a water kettle, which I personally always use anyhow. You'll need coarse ground coffee, no pods.

Bed is large and comfortable for two. I am 6'2", and had no trouble with the bed. My wife slept on the inside, which meant crawling over me to get out. That might be a bother or problem for some, but was not an issue for us.

Plenty of places to stow all our gear.

WiFi worked perfectly and fast. Useful for downloading maps, and making online reservations. I only streamed a couple adverts for places to visit... they did play smoothly. I assume Netflix and similar streaming would work fine.

Only issue for me was the bathroom. The sink faucet is so close to the edge of the basin that it is impossible to get my hands under the water stream without splooshing water out of the sink. Also, the mirror is so low that I needed to be on my knees to put on contacts and shave. Perhaps a tall mirror on the door would help. The highest shelves in the bathroom cabinet need to be cleaned... covered in dust. Have the cleaner use a step-stool and she will see it.

Otherwise, everything was very clean, especially linens and towels, floors, kitchen.

I will stay here again next time we visit London.

Perfect location and lovely flat

  • 5 of 5

The flat was perfect for my husband and me. It was clean, had all the necessities, was cheerful and bright, and could not have been in a better location. Petra was a good communicator and great to work with. Thank you for a fantastic stay in a lovely part of London!

Wonderful location for a week in London

  • 5 of 5

The flat made a wonderful home base for all of the activities we planned for our first trip to London. It was very convenient to the Underground and several museums. The neighborhood and neighbors were quite and we enjoyed the local parks and gardens within a short walking distance. Everything was in good order and clean upon arrival. We will plan to stay here again on any future trips to London.

Looks just like the photos! Perfect for a few days in London.

  • 5 of 5

It was just as expected. The photos are spot on and Petra is an awesome host. It's close to the South Kensington tube station which is very convenient and close to quite a few museums. I'd definitely consider staying here again if I'm back in London!
