Stayed here in Nov 2014 for one night. Good location and convenient for musems/other tourist stuff as well as Central London. Quiet, but as is usual in boutique London hotels, the rooms are so small it rather takes your breath away. The lift up to the room was so small that not only did my luggage (a standard 24" wheeler)... More

We needed to be in the Chelsea, South Kensington area overnight and remembered Sydney House from a previous stay about 18 months ago. London prices are currently very high and Sydney House represented the best value, although £255 is still quite an outlay for a bed for the night. The staff were polite and welcoming but I had forgotten just... More

Comments coming from our regular customers are absolutely paramount in our continuous efforts to improve standards of service and accommodation. Our hotel, two Chelsea townhouses located between King’s Road of Chelsea and Fulham Road, is sometimes exposed to regular traffic and city noise. All windows at... More

Having booked into another hotel 4 months ago where we were told on the day of check in that they had no room for us were told we had been booked into Sydney House. Whilst it was not as convenient geographically to the Albert Hall as the previous hotel, we were made very welcome by the staff. The room was... More

Just returned from our first trip to London. I chose Sydney House because of its close location to the So. Kensington tube station which is only a few blocks away. It is also on a bus route. The staff here is impeccable! Very polite and accommodating. The rooms are small by American standards, but very clean and comfortable and a... More

We have stayed at the Sydney House hotel twice now and have found it to be a very comfortable and convenient place to stay in London.

I stayed at the Chelsea House Hotel for three nights at the beginning of August while my husband was a patient at The Royal Brompton. I was disappointed that there were no tea making facilities. However when my daughter visited and requested a kettle, one was provided. I can't help feeling that this was a little short-sighted on the part... More

Dear Guest, Many thanks for taking time and effort to leave the feedback on your visit to our hotel. We are a townhouse hotel and room sizes are similar to those in the residential homes surrounding our hotel. Furthermore our rooms are far too delicately appointed to allow any sort of kitchen equipment. Exceptionally, on request only, we do provide... More

Having first been guests at Sydney House hotel in 2003, we have been back time after time and our last visit confirms what a great little boutique hotel this is. A couple of steps from Fulham Road and a couple of minutes stroll from Kings Road make it an ideal location for exploring Chelsea. We stopped overnight, some of the... More

Booked this hotel to stay for it's location, as this used to be my old stomping ground when I first lived in London, with my oldest school friend. This was far better then the photographs I viewed on the booking site. When I arrived my friend was already on the roof terrace, sitting in the sun & sipping chilled Sauvignon... More

I stayed at Sydney House in London and found it to offer very good value for money. It offers limited services in terms of dining (and does not have a gym), but if you are looking for a well located hotel, pleasantly decorated, with professional staff, Sydney House ticks the boxes.

I stayed here a couple of nights. I wouldn't say it's a boutique hotel but definitely nice. Rooms are VERY small also for European standards with VERY small bathroom. Everything is clean and people are friendly. 10 min walk to Kensington South Tube station. Convenient but not super close. It's a beautiful area though.
