We stayed for 3 nights at the Abba Queen's Gate hotel. We had 2 adults and 2 children in our party and stayed in a reasonable sized family room which had 2 3 foot twin beds for the adults and 2 x 2 foot 6 inch posh pullouts for the kids.
The room was a good size and it felt like we had a bit of space- our end and their end!
This was a good base for visiting London- it was a 5-10 minute walk to Gloucester Road or South Kensington tube stations- and was ideal for the Natural History Museum and Science Museum- again a 5 minute walk around the corner.
The staff were friendly and helpful- but more in the background rather than assisting you with everything in a way that you would expect in a more expensive hotel.
There was a good selection of local restaurants and shops so it made eating out easy. No taxis required.
