Service was outstanding. Due to the smaller size, they could not accommodate an early check in which was very difficult for us to fly all night then have to wait many hours before checking in. They were helpful with the luggage storage but we wandered the city very exhausted. Great location near wonderful shopping, restaurants and museums plus a great tube stop nearby. Would definitely stay there again.

How did this property earn a 5 star rating? I tihnk my expectations of a 5 star property are greater than this one. The place was nice and clean - and the staff was nice. The elevator is hardly large enough for one person plus luggage - and the water in the shower took forever to warm up.

Updated and clean but tiny room and bathroom

Updated and clean but tiny room and bathroom. With 2 people and luggage, there is almost no room to walk around the queen size bed.

Felt 100% at home and welcome

Pros: Service, cleanliness, comfort
Location: Great little restaurants nearby, coffee shops and other. South Kensington tube station is a 5 minute walk.
The staff was the best part of our stay here at the Sydney House! They gave good advice, were very friendly and most of all, just let us know that we were welcome. Our room was clean, the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was clean, although small, but we had everything we needed. Each morning, we had breakfast downstairs--tea, coffee, pastries and fruit. It was perfect. The location was exactly what we wanted: a quiet neighborhood with a few restaurants, close to the tube station so we could easily get to major attractions. We only wished we had been there a week later to go to a game at Chelsea FC's stadium just down the street!
