We are still looking for a descent hotel in London centre.
Were tempted by the Room at the Top description on the Hotel internet site. Good marketing as they do not let You book this room (it is the only one of a kind) and make You call them directly. So
the Room at the Top was as we imagined on the top floor, and it is the only one on this floor so you do not hear any neighbours, it is tiny (as any other room with the Hotel as I guess), has a lot of strange windows, AC, TV, bathroom with separate tub (also tiny) and a good sized (twice the room) terrace and that was fantastic!!! Would definitely recommend for they also have full size real king beds with terrific silk- feeling linen.
For breakfast do not know - we did not use
The staff are very good and definitely non intrusive but help You with everything You need. We arrived at about midnight with several suit cases and they helped us with all the luggage to the room and provided hot tea (not all 5 star in London do such)
Some good restaurants are near - I would recommend Patara (thay) - 10 meters from the Hotel) Mare (french with excellent life seafood choice - 200 metres direction centre). We also saw Mr. Ramsay every day for there is a restaurant (called carpaccio) being renovated and this might be anothr ggod reason to stop at The Sydney Hotel in a couple of months
The reason I vote it very good is that we like ants but not in the room and something should be done to the bath tub smell, though it is not so strong, yet
Still we would definitely come back
