We selected Number Sixteen after a careful review of alternatives to spend some tourist time in London. Number Sixteen isan excellent hotel and we came away quite satisfied. The cost was reasonable by London standards during prime tourist season (nothing is cheap in London - be prepared).
The room we had was small (common in Europe), but workable. The fixtures were first class and the hotel kept the room spotless.
The best feature of Number Sixteen is location - which is very important. The Tube was nearby as were assorted bus and taxi services - both business and tourist. Best of all our room was quiet, despite having an elevated view of the street. A Tube Oyster Pass gets you where you want to go as fast as you can get there in a major city. Taxis are very expensive.
The Number Sixteen restaurant for breakfast was expensive, but delicious. Despite the cost we ate there repeatedly. Try the homemade yogurt - just perfect! We also tried local pubs and restaurants around the hotel location which were also very good. The neighborhood is young professional and therefore very efficient.
The staff is international but friendly, cooperative and best of all, competent.
We will be back to visit Number Sixteen.
