Thats my 4th time staying at this hotel. Great service. The staff is very professional and they treat you like you are a family member of the hotel. The hotel is decorated by Kit Kemp, its beautiful and all the rooms are decorated differently. The garden is cute, and they allow small weddings to happen there. I have witnessed 2... More

I have stayed in this hotel several times a month for over five years and it almost always genuinely feels like a home away from home. Service and attentiveness is exceptional, almost all the rooms are large enough, beautifully decorated and bathrooms well appointed, the occasional double glazing challenge and underfloor heating absence in the beautiful marble bathrooms can mean...

I have stayed at number Sixteen several times when traveling to London. It is like staying in someone's private home but with the amenities of a fine hotel. It is small, intimate and beautifully furnished. But the true charm of the place is the staff. They bend over backward to make your stay comfortable. From securing a reservation to a... More

Unfortunately, the evening before flying to London we realized that the room I had booked (booking.com) only had 12 sqm (superior room 864 GBP, incl. breakfast 3 nights). So I called the hotel to ask if they had a larger room and was able to switch to a luxury room (936 GBP). When checking in the next evening we were... More

Number Sixteen is a small and friendly hotel where you feel you could actually live. Great location, with local restaurants and pubs and the underground all within easy walk. Rooms are typical Kit Kemp style, although beware of very small shower room in room 307 (like a small cupboard) and not all rooms, including this one, have an in-room safe,... More

I have stayed at Number Sixteen a number of times over the years. It always feels like I'm returning to my London residence. Boutique style hotel, wonderful staff, very comfortable rooms that are spotless. Some rooms are quite small. So do opt for a larger room. Continental breakfast is very good. If it's included in your room cost it can... More

We booked for afternoon tea to celebrate a friends pregnancy. Nothing like arriving and hearing a discussion between staff who when told we are there for tea says "who?" A bottle of water costs £6 - they don't offer tap water. The afternoon tea £24.50 is served in a room of your choice and we chose the living room which... More

It is on a quiet residential street, and has a comfortable and quiet garden. The location is most convenient, around the corner from the South Kensington tube station and a Lamborghini showroom. There are several good restaurants in the area.

We just returned to New York from a four-night stay at Number Sixteen. My two daughters and I loved the hotel -- beautifully decorated, very comfortable beds, excellent and friendly service from the entire staff, delicious breakfast -- and also loved the location in South Kensington near the Tube, great restaurants, cafes, shopping, and museums. We stayed in a Deluxe... More

We stayed here over Christmas 2013 and I realised I never reviewed it. What a great stay we had - complete with a lovely and thoughtful gift from the hotel on Christmas morning! The rooms are beautifully decorated. Comfy beds, fluffy robes and Molton Brown products. Breakfast is delicious - healthy, tasty. Staff welcoming and helpful. Lounge areas relaxing and... 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.
