Number Sixteen forms part of a row of gleaming white stucco mid Victorian townhouses. It originally opened in the 1980’s and instantly became popular with discerning travellers looking for an alternative to the larger Park Lane hotels. Now several years on, the hotel has a Firmdale point of view. Kit Kemp redesigned the hotel in her signature, fresh modern English style.

3 adjacent Chelsea townhouses have been combined into this boutique hotel. Rooms are modest in size, but have comfortable beds and nice bathrooms complete with heated floors and heated towel racks. Location is great; 2 blocks from Hyde Park and walkable to key tourist attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Natural History Museum, Westminster Abbey and the Thames. The neighborhood itself is quiet and feels relaxed. Breakfast is great, excellent avocado toast, hash browns and eggs benedict. Not sure if there is an elevator (hotel is 4 floors). Might not choose this for a business trip as the room is small and there is not much of a lobby (so it may be inconvenient for working).

We spent a week-end in London and enjoyed our stay at Number Sixteen. We had a lovely room with a nice view, not spacious, but comfortable. The decor is just marvellous and the interior is perfect. The breakfast room is so cosy and comfortable and we love the variety of dishes on the breakfast menue. In the evening one can enjoy the "honest bar" and help oneself with a drink. Located in South Kensington / Chelsea there are a lot of things to do around. We will be happy to come back soon!

This is a boutique hotel that has been individually designed to an extreme degree.The work and attention to detail is extraordinary , this may or may not be to one's liking of course. Breakfast is served in the elegant orangerie or the pretty garden. All the produce is of very high quality. We had a comfortable quiet room with a large bed, good air con and powerful shower. The bathroom may be up or down steps which could be an issue. Also very close to access a tube station , the museum's, Albert Hall. Knightsbridge and Chelsea . We did have a few minor issues that's why I didn't give 5 stars but I would definitely stay in this hotel again , it is very impressive.

A really lovely place. Designed of course to perfection, beautifully appointed. Comfortable and very friendly team. The public rooms are super, al fresco breakfast a joy. Only niggle was the relative difficultly of the shower in our room. Wow, the bath side was pretty high and the bath so lovely the glaze on it meant was v v slippy. Really so! Not one usually for a shower mat (and I know the design attention to detail doesn’t suit these) but maybe pop one in room 2 discreetly.
