I had never stayed here before, but would now recommend it if you're looking for a comfortable and clean hotel in Chelsea, at a reasonable price. It is true rooms are not huge, and specially the bathrooms are quite constrained. But beds are very comfortable, and the hotel looks new and clean. The service is very good and they really... More

We stayed here one night. Not a great deal to say other than positives. Quick efficient check in, very comfortable bed, great location. Would happily stay here again. Can't comment on breakfast as we didn't have it.

Comfortable and clean double room in Georgian style house on Sydney Street near Kings Road, quieter road than recent visit to Fraser Suites but nowhere as big a room or as luxuriously fitted as Fraser Suites, but more convenient for the Kings Road.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in September at the lovely Sydney House. Our room, No 41 on the fourth floor, was spacious and spotless, with a large comfortable bed, great shower, a settee, desk with chair, 2 luggage racks and a safe.

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

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
