Our room was clean and comfortable and very nice. The elevator is tiny and the lobby is the same but we had a good breakfast ( not included) and found the staff very friendly. Lots of good restaurants nearby but PJ's at the end of the street was a top notch find.

I used to work near Sydney Street in Chelsea. I used to watch the glittering super rich nip in and out of the white terraced houses, catching the odd glimpse of sleek hallways and oversized architectural plants within. One day, I thought, one day. Well I'm further than ever from the dream of a Chelsea town house but one night... More

This smart and sophisticated hotel has become our hotel of choice when staying in London. The staff are always welcoming and helpful. The location is superb and ideal for a stroll along the Kings Road on a Sunday morning. As always the room was comfortable, well presented and just has the hint of being that little bit special.

Stayed again after 12 months in the room at the top and was pleased to find that Sydney house retains the same standard and service as before . I suppose that I should not be surprised really as if it's anything to do with the Brownsword group then it will be good. Staff and room were spot on, and it's... More

Peaceful, clean, compact rooms, when you just want a bed to flop into this is the place, very centrally located, in-between Kings Road and Fulham Road, loads of buses and S Ken tube a 5 minute walk, great place to stay. Sadly left in a rush so didn't sample the breakfast. Lovely crisp sheets and comfy bed.

Having had some poor experiences in London independent / townhouse style hotels, this was a pleasant surprise. Not the largest room in the world but comfortable, well appointed, clean and quiet (despite my room looking straight onto the street). 'Honesty bar' in the lobby, good breakfast (and hurrah, cooked to order not a buffet!), nice staff, reasonable rates and in... More
