We always enjoy our stay at 170a, unfortunately the channels were not working on the TV but the receptionist arranged for someone to have a look while we were out - staff are always pleasant and helpful.

Wonderful staff.
Mrs Shona M

We loved everything about our stay. Location is excellent, as are the amenities. The extra touches were very much appreciated, eg. Coffee, tea and milk. Thank you.
Mrs Ruth M

Please pass my warm thanks to the security staff on duty on WWednesday night 8 June, for showing us the flat and making us feel welcome. This is excellent PR for Imperial College.
Mr Bram S

The 2 bedroom flat we rented was wonderful. We appreciated the full kitchen and the clothes washer especially. The area that the apartment is located was lovely, had a lot of restaurants, and was very close to transportation. 170A Queen's Gate was the perfect home from home and we would definitely rent again!
Ms Christine P

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 170A Queen's Gate. The accommodation meet our needs perfectly. The apartment was clean, comfortable and well equipped. All staff that we came into contact with were friendly and helpful.

A very comfortable home from home in a convenient part of London. The accommodation was clean and well equipped and the arrangements for getting access to the keys on arrival (which is not always easy for this type of accommodation) were excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and would certainly use it again next time we visit London.
