This was my second visit to Sydney House. It is a perfectly situated hotel that makes you feel at home. Staff are attentive and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. It is small and intimate but provided everything we could need. I love it!

The Sydney House is in a good location from the Tube. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were satisfying and filling. There were hot drinks and fruit available during the day and into the evening. The room was small but adequate and comfortable.

Really loved this hotel. Small but cosy - bed was so comfortable, shower was great and couldn't fault breakfast. Brilliant location. It was so unfortunate that it was very noisy. Could hear everything happening next door and was up several times during the night with wake up calls and people coming back to their room.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood 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.
