Sydney House Chelsea

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed overnight in London at Sydney Guest House Chelsea and I wish we had longer to visit. The guesthouse was beautiful, and located within a short walking distance of South Kensington Station. The staff was incredibly helpful, and the breakfast was gorgeously prepared and delicious.

This hotel has the best breakfast in London. The quality of the meal and the amazing staff are unique. The location is awesome and by far the most courteous staff in town. I consider it my hotel in London! It is a hidden gem.

A perfect hidden gem in the heart of South Kensington. Great value for money in this area and within walking distance to wonderful restaurants and museums. Premier Deluxe rooms worth spending the extra on as others below this quite small.

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Easy access to South Kensington station and to lots of shops and restaurants. Lovely neighborhood to walk in. Friendly and helpful staff. Very good breakfast. Small room, but I was solo so it was fine. For a couple it might be a bit tight. I would definitely recommend it.

I chose this location due to its proximity to the Royal Marsden Hospital and South Kensington station. It was an excellent hotel with welcoming and friendly staff. I was surprised that there were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room, however refreshments were always available in the guest lounge.

very nice and helpful staff, superb breakfast, nice and small hotel in a very good and quiet area. Just 400 meters to Underground und busstation. You can find easy good restaurants around the hotel. Very motivated and lovely staff.

All staff were very helpful and friendly. The room had all facilities in it and was very clean, bright and welcoming. I felt at home. For a small hotel the room size was good. I would stay in this hotel again, and can therefore recommend it.

Excellent service, rooms in top condition, excellent food and room service, very accommodating at reception, pleasant staff, great location, would definitely make this hotel a favourite if staying in Chelsea / South Kensington / Fulham Broadway area!

Great location, great price, great rooms. I tried the breakfast one morning and it was really good - poached egg, avocado, arugula on toast. Slightly expensive compared to the room rate but the food was good. I would highly recommend this hotel to travelers in London.

This charming old house makes a very comfortable base in an area excellent for shopping and places to visit. The ambiance is that of a welcoming, clean and well run home, with very polite and helpful staff. The decor is pleasingly fresh, simple and sympathetically modern. The only 2 points which stop us giving the hotel an overall `excellent' rating is the slight lack of space in the rooms due to the age and style of the original house, and lack of tea/coffee facilities although these are on tap and free in the breakfast room. Neither would prevent us from returning or giving our recommendation.
