We enjoyed our one night here The hotel has a very relaxed and welcoming feel about it and is in an excellent location The room was well appointed and had some nice touches Breakfast was disappointing, the conservatory was closed for refurbishment and the breakfast room was small and impersonal and the food offering was drab...

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...

We spent a weekend here and it was perfect,very near the tube and restaurants, we had lunch from their room service menu which was delicious , their continental breakfast is also very good. The room was spacious with a very large comfortable bed. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

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

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

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.
