If you are looking for a veyr high standard of quality and finishing, in a quiet and ideal location, then 130 Queens Gate is an excellent choice.
But remember, this is NOT a hotel, so do not expect bell service, concierge, room service or housekeeping on a Sunday.
My room was a 10 out of 10 in quality, cleanliness, EVERYTHING worked. TV in the living room and TV in the bedroom. Stereo with Ipod connections in both the Living Room and Bedroom. Bathroom was excellent, clean and modern with a full jacuzzi bath/shower and bidet.
My room (deluxe 1 bedroom) had AC, heating, comfortable sofa and two chairs, full dining table and fully equipped kitchen.

The staff were professionally pleasant and business like but not very outgoing or particularly friendly. They are not there to be your friend, only to facilitate the administrative side of the facility.

There was a very small gym with a treadmill, some weights and a 'machine'.

Only issues:
No basic food amenities (i.e. salt and pepper)
No facecloths in the bathroom - that just seemed strange
Not a lot of towels - 2 bath towels and 1 hand towel, although they are replaced daily
No full length mirror

Room Tip: The rooms are accurately described on the website.

Checked into 130 Queensgate Apartments last month after spending a night in an alternative lodging -- somehow could not get a reservation through the website inspite of multiple attempts and had paid for more than a week's accomodation in a nearby facility. We were fotunate that when we walked upto the counter on a whim, the folks at Queensgate were able to give us an apartment for the rest of our stay in London.

As was the case when we stayed there in June 2011, service and facilities at 130 Queensgate were excellent and significantly brightened up everybody in my family.

Will definitely choose 130 Queensgate when I next visit London!

If you want to stay in the best apartments in South Kensington, this is it. Over the last five years, I have lived exclusively in hotels and furnished apartment suites around the globe - including London, Paris, New York, LA, Istanbul and Dubai - so I feel I can write this review with confidence (in fact, this is the only time I have ever reviewed anything!) If you are willing to spend over a £1000 a night, then you may be able to beat the quality of light, space and furniture you get at 130 Queen's Gate, otherwise, sadly not.
130 Queen’s Gate opened in October 2010 and since then I have been staying there on a long and short regular stay.
The staff are wonderful and from the moment you check-in, Yusuf the Manager and his team will make sure the moment you are check-in, that in every way possible they will endeavour to make your stay feel like a true ‘home away from home’ experience. The staffs are friendly yet professional and are always at hand to deal with any of my requirements - without having the hassle to deal with some pompous hotel concierge. They are also multi-lingual, they speak French/ Russian and Arabic. To me, they are the overwhelming asset at 130 Queens Gate! I am surprised that Yusuf has not been snapped up by some major hotel chain yet ... but long may it continue! The front of house team will cater all your needs from booking a personal massage in the comfort of your own apartment or to organizing a hired hat for a day at Ascot.

130 Queen’s Gate is charming/Discrete/ Brand new The apartments on the first floor (my favourite Apt 102, Apt 103, Apt 105) are luxurious and are very well done to a high standard with high ceiling (Chandelier) / L-Shape with sofa (Sofa bed) large Kitchen with fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle and a microwave, flat screen TV's in both the Living Room and the Bedroom; lots of day light with big front (Double Glazing) doors open to the front balcony because they enjoy soaring ceiling heights and many have outdoor space - a real premium in London,
The location is wonderful/great and convenient to all the local grocery shops/ Pubs/ Restaurant and Gym around South Kensington and Gloucester Road, also within walking distance to Harrods and National History Museum. Its second to none being walking distance from Hyde Park, Harrods, the National History Museum and even Notting Hill (if you fancy a 30 minute walk)
The accommodation and most importantly the beds are very comfortable (this is very important to me as I have a slipped disc in my lower back). 130QG provides complimentary Wi-Fi and a daily housekeeping service (unfortunately housekeeping is not available on Sunday - one of the few drawbacks), the bed linen can be changed daily if needed or every second day of your stay. The cleaning is excellent and the room attendants are friendly and most importantly honest (I have never lost anything there and often don't use the safe provided or leave it open by mistake). The Standard of Cleaning is excellent and every little detail will be taken into consideration.
WELL DONE Queen’s Gate TEAM and this is my ‘home from home’ when am in London and am delighted to have found this wonderful Serviced Apartments where Location/ Value for Money/ Comfort / Style and above all customer Service are EXCEPTIONAL and OUTSTANDING. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

We just came back home from a 6 days trip to London and we will definitely be back! The one bedroom flat that we rented was immaculate and luxurious. Cleanliness is VERY important for me, and for the first time, I was truly impressed about how clean the apartment was! The staff was very friendly and polite and they responded quickly to our request. We will definitely be staying here again when we come back to London! 130 QG made my stay in London one of the best ever!

This place is incredibly good.

Beautifully renovated to very high standards, excellent service, great location. Easy to get anywhere in London or beyond from the nearby tube stations. The Natural History Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum are in very close walking distance. Harrod's and up-market Knightsbridge shops are also an easy walk away.

And the modern, fully equipped apartment rooms are amongst the best I've ever stayed in. The great kitchen with nice appliances are an unusual incentive to call into the nearby supermarket and then eat in with a 'home'-cooked meal, even though there are plenty of good restaurants close-by as well.

Couldn't recommend it more highly.

Room Tip: The washer/dryer we had in our room was incredibly slow (hours per load), so we used it as a washer...

We usually stay at a sublime five star Knightsbridge hotel. Yusuf and his team ensured that we felt that we missed nothing except the price.Well done. We will use this establishment in future.
