What I have said above says it all but let me add that I have stayed in a great many hotels around the world but I have never found one where the staff was more helpful, the rooms cleaner or more elegant or the atmosphere more welcoming.

This is a small city hotel in a perfect location that feels like a home. My room was little yet functional, although i also saw a bigger room on the top floor. Breakfast was basic and with so many places to eat literally a stone's throw you don't miss them not having a restaurant.

Moldy smell in room took a while to air out. Staff was friendly but had to leave windows open all night to avoid smell. Should not happen even if it rains. Nice location and design. Final verdict: not sure I would stay again.

This was our 2nd visit to the Sydney House hotel. Excellent location short pleasant walk to Knightsbridge/ Harrods/ Museums. We walked even further up to Hyde park and through in to Oxford Street as it was such a gorgeous sunny warm morning. I'm not sure what it was about our 2nd stay that didn't live up to our first visit... More

Loved my stay here. Location near South Ken tube and King's road allowed me to travel to all key destinations in London as well as to some cool restaurants. Rooms were modern, clean and spacious but the only caveat was that shortage of staff resulted in room being cleaned at 4pm on the first day and at 5pm the following... More

I stayed at the hotel the night before and the night of my wedding. Ideally situated for both the registry office and the pub where our reception was being held. The staff were extremely helpful (especially James) even though they were short staffed. The rooms are quite small but nicely done. The Room at The Top has an amazing terrace... More

We loved this small boutique hotel. Discrete and low key. The two rooms we had were perfect and well appointed. Very comfortable. Quite convenient for South Kensington and this part of Chelsea.The only problem is the relative lack of parking nearby.

Once again a lovely stay at this hotel. We have used this hotel a number of times due to the fact I have to attend a nearby hospital. The hotel staff are so nice, caring and welcoming. Makes for a pleasant stay. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone.

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.
