Spent 2 nights at Number Sixteen in March 2015. Proximity to South Kensington underground station made this hotel the perfect location for exploring London. Stayed in a 3rd floor room, but it was well appointed and spacious for one person. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

This was our second stay at No. 16. It is the same people that own Crosby Street in NYC, and it is simply phenomenal. Great staff, delighful rooms, and Kennsington locationt that, while in a residential neighborhood, is also only steps from the South Kensington tube station.

My daughter & I stayed at Number 16 for 3 nights in mid-March. My travel agent had suggested the property so I agreed. The reception staff was amazingly cool & rude. Within 10-15 minutes of checking in & giving the staff my charge card, my husband received 3 fraud alerts from the charge card company. The amount was miscalculated by... More

Gorgeous quaint hotel. Absolutely love the "honesty bar" - lovely idea. beautiful rooms. nicely decorated. afternoon tea in the garden was wonderful even if a little nippy but the patio heaters kept us toasty. parking can be a little tricky. would go again.

Fabulous location. The single room is a very cost effective option for the solo traveller. Right by South Kensington Station. Very nice appointments, but for those who don't want to pay for unneeded amenities, this is a great option.

Number 16 is a relaxed and charming base in a great location. The staff are incredibly helpful and the rooms bear the inimitable stamp of Kit Kemp - whose talent and attention to detail is a privilege to enjoy when staying here.I am looking forward to seeing the new garden which is in progress and will soon be complete.

Booked a Deluxe room for us & our 11yr old son, and a luxury room for my mother & father in law - our room had plenty of space for the extra bed without falling over each other - the layout and signature eclectic decor was perfect, and the little finishing touches such as pillow spray, candles, cooked breakfast to...

I stayed at number sixteen while in London for a work trip. It was a weekend so I desperately wanted somewhere cosy, relaxed and nothing like a Hilton. I love this place. If you appreciate beautiful interiors and exceptional attention to detail, I am sure you will love it too. The staff were friendly and attentive and the continental breakfast... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
