"Situated on one of the most desirable and upmarket roads in Central London"
Situated on the broad and leafy Queens Gate, the Abba Queens Gate, London (previously the Queens Gate Concorde, London) offers a refurbished townhouse in the heart of one of the capital's most popular districts, within easy reach of many attractions.
"Perfect location for the Kensington Museums and the Royal Albert Hall"
Queens Gate is the home of two of London's greatest attractions, and the country's greatest collections: the Natural History Museum, and the Science Museum. Both are just across the street from this hotel.
"Kensington offers superb shopping including Harrods within walking distance"
Also close by you will find the Victoria & Albert Museum for those of you interested in ancient history, and the Royal Albert Hall for any concert fiends. In terms of location, if you want to see upscale attractions like museums, this is about as good as you are going to get.
You are also very close to several popular and upmarket shopping areas, like High Street Kensington, Harrods in Knightsbridge, the Kings Road and Sloane Square.
"Hyde Park and Kensington Palace are on the doorstep"
If you prefer relaxing in the outdoors, and getting away from the hurly-burly of city life then you are also just a few minutes walk from Hyde Park or Kensington Gardens. The nearest tubes are South Kensington, Gloucester Road (from which you can get a direct train to Heathrow), and High Street Kensington, all of which can whisk you into the West End if you are looking for more of what the city has to offer.
"Refurbished to a very high spec in 2012"
The Abba Queens gate was recently completely refurbished, with an emphasis on creating an intimate atmosphere whilst ensuring that modern facilities were installed.
The rooms feature LCD televisions, wifi, air conditioning, both UK and European plug sockets (these will also work for American devices). They all have an ensuite bathroom and safe. There is a restaurant that serves a selection of tapas around the clock, as well as a gym for guests.
This hotel is just around the corner from the Royal Albert Hall, and represents a good bet for those looking for somewhere quiet to stay in one of London's nicest areas. You are literally a few minutes walk from Hyde Park, and some of the capital's great cultural institutions are just across the road from the hotel.
Some guests have found the revamped décor to be somewhat lacking, and the breakfasts have received mixed reviews.
In our opinion, the Abba Queens Gate represents fantastic value in an excellent location, and is generally thought of warmly. It is a good, sensible option in one of the capital's most desirable locations, and one that will not break the bank as you explore the leafy avenues of South Kensington.
