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.

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!

The Place to Stay in London

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week here in November 2016. The location is terrific - close to the Kensington museums, and one block from the South Kensington tube station where three lines converge. It is in the basement level of an attractive terrace apartment, with large walk-through opening window onto a private courtyard (rare in this area). All appliances are high quality and new. It is perfect for two, well laid out and very comfortable. There is a Waitrose Express two short blocks away with every prepared food one could want, and many restaurants nearby. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends coming to London.
