Hidden little gem in the best part of London - Chelsea. Rooms are great, not too small and priced competitively. Staff is very friendly, and happy to answers questions and help with things. Will definitely stay here again!

We had been looking for a hotel near to the Chelsea Flower Show for some time and through TripAdvisor, found and read about the Sydney House Hotel. We took a chance to stay there for one night as a base to go and see Mike and The Mechanics at the Apollo Hammersmith [easy access from South Kensington tube]. The hotel... More

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

We stayed here for 2 nights and chose the hotel for the location and price. Neither disappointed. This town house hotel is situated just off the Fulham Road, a few minutes from South Kensington tube station and on bus routes. My adult children could easily come and visit us and we found a plethora of good places to eat nearby.... More

Not our first visit but our first time staying in the room at the top. The rooms are certainly on the small side however they have lovely finishing touches and are very well appointed. The staff are very friendly and no request is too much trouble. The hotel is spotless and has a light, modern feel. Great location.
