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

If you've never been to London the first coscious choice you have to make when selecting a hotel is the neighborhood. South Kensington and Chelsea are posh yet multicultural quarters, brimming with bars, cafés,restaurants and boutiques. Personally I like South Kensington as it is closer to Hyde Park which is a boon if you enjoy running. Number 16 is smack... More

I just spent 9 nights at this wonderful property in my favorite part of London "South Kensington!" I have stayed at several different properties in South Kensington before and this property was by far the best!! Loved the location! I will start with saying "the entire staff was fantastic!" I was traveling on my own and each and every one... More

Of note were the friendly and accommodating attitudes of the staff. The hotel has an exquisite interior design merging classic with beautifully modern pieces. There was a meticulous attention to detail paid in all areas of hospitality. I consider this to be an ultra-slick operation without being too austere- a rarity in Sth Ken. Indeed perfectly located for lovers of... More

I spent 5 nights recently at this lovely Firmdale a Hotel in South Kensington. It has a comfortable English home vibe and a peaceful courtyard garden for guests. Rooms are beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, and have everything one might need. Staff was personal and always obliging with getting taxis, making reservations and storing luggage. Although rates are not cheap, they... More

Small, elegant and quirky as well. This hotel is even better than the last time we stayed there. The staff is amazing, from my Skype call to the emails and theater and restaurant and shopping recommendations. The rooms are large and perfect- with great mirrors and lighting. But the best is the garden- for a leisurely breakfast ( included), high... More

I and my husband stayed a week end in this pretty hotel 3 min walk from South Kensington tube station. It has been bought by an American company 4 years ago, refurbished to high standard and doted with young and extremely professional and friendly staff. The room we stayed in was large, impeccably clean, fine bedlinen, good bathroom, air conditioning,... More
