Travel Blogs from London
All I'll say about the trip to London was I'll never do a itinerary that requires changing planes 3 times. My heart and temper can't handle it. Despite the constant fear of missed connections, I boarded my flight and got underway. I arrived the morning of the first at Gatwick,took the Gatwick Express to Victoria Station and walked to my hotel, The …
... sit and sightsee from the comfort of a warm enclosed bus! As 1pm approaches, we find ourselves passing through Covent Garden, so off we hop for a light lunch as there's heaps of eating places to choose from here. And what timing, just settled at our table, and the heavens open up, complete with small hail - brrrrr!! Jetlag is hanging around my shoulders and this afternoons ...
... London Metropolitan Police did their bit in ensuring the crowd control was systematic and at no point I felt or scared of a stampede. The parade were colourful and props to the event organisers and the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea officials as well as Metropolitan Police of London who dedicated their weekend to service the greater public. It was a totes amaze balls festival, apart from the irresponsible littered and ...
The Ritz - Afternoon Tea (even though it was the morning)
also saw Household Cavalry Museum and changeover at 3pm of two mounted guards

The London Eye (what a view over the city)
time out with the cousins
Decided we had to see Harrods if only to say we had been there. It is very flash and expensive. We looked at cameras because I rather fancy one with a better zoom as I am feeling a bit frustrated with the one I have. But definitely no deals going there. We went to a few dress shops for Laura and she managed to buy a pair of shorts and a top but this took a long time. (Since I'm a good shopper i managed to find ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sydney House London
This is the first time I used Trip Advisor and I found it very helpful so I thought I would return the favor by writing a review.
TOP CLASS HOTEL
What a fantastic place! I have been to London many times but have never enjoyed such hospitality. From check in onwards it was superb.
Spotless room wit a small terrace, most comfortable bed I slept in for years, sleek modern look with all facilities one could expect. All very attractive. And staff to match it. Friendly and super professional.
To top it all they will deliver an organic breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit to your room for under 10 pounds. I had to check whether it wasn't a mistake.
It was Chelsea after all.
I will definitely be back for more!!
Fabulous stay at Sydney House
I have just returned from a week long stay at Sidney House in Chelsea, and it just couldn't have been better!!! The staff were very helpful and friendly- from the front desk to the maid. The location is superb, and great dining is just around the corner. The room was spotless and contained everything you could need-except a clock, which seemed strange, but in no way compromised the joy of the modern room. Soft sheets, great mattress-and SIX pillows on the bed!!! You cannot go wrong with this hotel.
Cute little boutique hotel
Lovely little hotel in a perfect location. Very close to the Kings Road - lots of great stores and yummy restaurants nearby. Only complaint being the size of the room but it was definitely "small and cosy". I think the Room at the Top would have been better so perhaps we'll stay there next time!!
Great little find
Just returned from a visit to London where I stayed at the Sydney House. It's a small, homey property with modern amenities. The room was on the small size, but the bed was very comfy. The Internet connection worked flawlessly. The staff was extremely nice and very helpful. They serve food 24/7 both in your room or downstairs in the eatting area. The only issue I had is that you can't control the temperature in your room on your own, but the staff is more than willing to change it for you. It's a short walk to the So. Kensington Tube station. The bar/restaurant at the corner, PJ's is very good too. Would definitely stay there again.
Thanks from Rogers
Kudos to the staff at Sydney House Chelsea Hotel!Lovely Redo-thank goodness for minimalistic decor(you won't find any chintz here) and HARD Wood floors.Great Bathrooms and rooms.I've stayed at other "Hip" hotels in London and to say that Sydney comes on top.We'll be back!
This is a really lovely, homely, stylish little hotel in South Kensington (3 mins walk from the tube station) - location is very handy for shopping on Fulham Road and the King's Road, for visiting the Museums (Albert & Victoria, Science Museum, Natural History Museum), and also for getting to all the main train stations on the Circle Line (Victoria, Charing Cross, Paddington, Blackfriars).
Very cleverly designed townhouse. Great room, bed, and amenities.
Just wish the service had more charm. Especially the chef, who was downright sullen.
Love for the first side !
I loved this cosy little place in Chelsea. Everything's just on the right place: in the room, in the bath, in the public areas. Extremely friendly and helpfull staff! And the location . . . unbeatable.
STRONGLY RECOMMANDED !
Lovely little hotel in a lovely part of Chelsea, most comfy bed I have slept in for years ! Nice touch with the LCD TV. Rare to find such a hotel for the ?100 paid that was 5 star standard, think small St Martins Lane.
