We have just recently stayed 4 nights at Space Apart Hotel with our 9 year old. We booked a Triple room over 9 months prior to our stay. On arrival (late 9pm) we were given the only triple room left, which was tiny and had loft sleeping. The apartment was significantly smaller than expected (based on web-site photos), and felt like the loft was added simply to be able to use this space as an apartment.

The emergency floor-plan on the back of door showed that this was the smallest apartment on the ground level, which was surprising for what is the most expensive room type available. It was quite claustrophobic sleeping in the loft due to the low roof - not even our 9 year old could stand in this space and you are bound to bump your head getting in and out of bed. This was further compounded by the bed being only a small double and extremely hard.

The apartment is very modern, with nice furniture. The kitchen and bathroom are well appointed, and it was great to have a washer/dryer within the apartment. Another benefit was an opening window which allowed for fresh air. Having read other reviews regarding the Wifi I feel that I have to comment. When it was operating it was really fast and we had no problems. However, it seemed to be offline from about midnight until 7am each night, which was not ideal for us in contacting family in Australia via email and Skype.

The apartment was clean, and was not serviced in the time we were there. We knew this and it was not a problem at all. Supplies can be replenished if need be. There are no food stocks (not even coffee/sugar) in the apartment so everything must be purchased from the supermarket.

The staff were all very helpful and courteous. Whilst it's in easy reach of a wide selection of restaurants and supermarkets, it is at least 500m from Bayswater station (the closest tube) and almost 1km from Queensway station. The street is pretty quiet with little through traffic and the neighbourhood felt very safe.

This stay could have been all the better (and five star rating) had we been lucky enough to be allocated one of the better triple rooms. I suspect that your experience at Space will very much come down to the luck of the draw as to whether you get one of the bigger/better rooms of whatever class of room you book - for example all triples are the same price but ours was tiny in comparison to others. We were disappointed because having booked 9 months in advance and for 4 nights - we had thought we would have been allocated one of the better ones and not just left with what was available at 9pm on night of arrival.

Room Tip: If you are booking a triple, see if you can guarantee the actual room prior to arrival and avoid the...

I stay here almost every time I'm staing in London. Nice place with the only defect that some apartment are very small. But, people are very handsome, apartments are well furnished with nice stair with black and white stripe fantasy...... Every apartment has washing machine, shower, kitchen, fridge, microwave. Space Apart is located very close to Bayswater and Queensway underground station and Hyde Park. Is it also very close to Paddington Station and is very simple to reach it walking.

Room Tip: Choose a big room

Stayed here recently and were very impressed by the well equipped, spotlessly clean apartment. Yes, it was small but had much to offer - including a washer/dryer of our own. Even an electric bed - which my husband was happy with but I found too hard and squeaky. But otherwise everything was good. We were in a ground floor studio and unlike other reviews had no trouble at all with the wifi. Had a large window that didn't have a view but did open. The rooms are serviced weekly which suited us fine. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay here again happily.

Great location, with very helpful staff. Requests were always acknowledged. Well appointed with everything you need to hand. We will be coming back to stay. As first timers to London we were made to feel very, very welcome.

My husband and I just got back from a 2 week stay at the Space Apart Hotel which I selected after MANY hours of researching hotels for our trip. We chose the standard room which was small, but the size didn't bother us a bit. We'll choose the same size for our next stay.

Upon arriving we were greeted by the Hotel Manager, Phillip, who immediately showed us to our room, located on the second floor, and gave us a quick tour of its features. He also told us how to contact him if we needed anything during the night. We were quite pleased with our modern and very clean room. (I'm especially picky about cleanliness.) We were extremely happy with the room amenities such as the dishwasher, refrigerator, washer/dryer and fully furnished cabinets with plates, glasses, silverware, etc. - everything you need. The free wifi was a big plus and our room was really quiet.

The hotel is within a few minutes walking distance to the Bayswater and Queensway tube stations and many grocery stores, drugstores, restaurants and shops. The street where the hotel is located is pleasant, too.

Everyone at the front desk was nice and helpful and always greeted us with a smile. My husband hit it off with Phillip in particular over their love for snooker. Phillip even took him out to shoot some pool while we were there which was great.

I very highly recommend the Space Apart Hotel and we will definitely stay there the next time we're in London. My mother is already planning to stay there during her next trip this fall.

Thanks for the wonderful stay!!

This is our 8th visit to London and FINALLY we have found great modern accommodation at a very reasonable price for London. Location - we are seniors and it is an easy walk about 15mins to Paddington station, 2 mins to Bayswater or Queensway underground. Heaps of restaurants from expensive to cheap, M&S 1 min walk. Hyde park 5 min walk. Apartment - totally fresh, modern - microwave, hob, dishwasher, washing/machine dryer, cutlery,plates, saucepans and wine glasses ! Heating and A/C. On a long 8 week holiday to Europe and UK just wonderful to be able to cook a meal and wash clothes ! Great value - really reasonable considering the facilities of the apartment. Fluffy towels (not threadbare - yeah !!!) fresh air with an opening window. An email prior to arrival asking our ETA and people there to meet and greet. Thank you Mark and Philip. An explanation of services and also an explanation that there was always a staff member on premises even if not at the desk. On top of all this - it was quiet AND there is a lift. Had to pinch ourselves to remember we were in London.

Room Tip: We had a larger size apartment and it really was worth it
