5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

First time visit to this hotel. Very convenient to the South Kensington Tube Station. Pretty room which was quiet. Very nice staff. Nice that there's now a nespresso coffee maker in the room, as well as a bottle of drinking water. All the staff were pleasant. Good value for the money, especially in an otherwise fancy part of town (although not the most touristical). Thought the cooked breakfast was slightly overpriced but that's a quibble. Only real complaint was that a smoke alarm went off in the early morning...scary...and took a while for staff to respond to let us know what was going on. Fortunately, just a false alarm. Would definitely return if I need to be in the area again.

Due to the total professionalism and pleasantness of the receptionist Agne and the other reception staff. Makes all the difference for our return visit. This hotel is perfect for us due to access to a nearby hospital for checkups.

We've stayed at Sydney House twice and love: the location, the simple and beautiful design, the quiet and personal feeling...we were warmly welcomed back and love our home away from home. The staff are friendly and very helpful.

Lovely welcoming staff, smallish but well appointed room. Great breakfast. Plenty of stairs and small lift. Don't use the taxi service, complete rip off! No tea making facilities in the room but very good room service. All in all a lovely place to stay.

Thought long and hard about reviewing this gem. Though I would keep it to myself, but that would not be fair on the hotel. We chose this hotel for its proximity to the Chelsea Flower Show and what a find it turned out to be. Service, staff, facilities breakfast, location all perfect in my opinion. The room was excellent , bed comfortable, wifi, TV, air con and lighting all operated well. This is a hotel I will use again and again.

Great small hotel, perfect position , very very quiet ,rooms are just lovely, bathrooms great , loved the high quality bedding and extra comfy pillows , also felt really safe in this area . Would definitely stay here again anytime I am in London .....

Perfect location, lovely quiet,clean, comfortable hotel. Excellent facilities,professional staff. Smallish room but space was utilised well. Piping hot water and lovely fluffy towels and robes. Cleanliness second to none.

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.
