The Number Sixteen is a very good boutique hotel. The hotel staff was very nice and always helpful. Clean, Quaint, and comfortable... we really enjoyed our stay here. They have a lovely courtyard for for breakfast too.

Room Tip: We had a very small room (Standard Queen Room,) with stair access only.... so make sure if elevator...

I have been traveling to London on a monthly basis for many years now and though I spend much time in the South Kensington area was unfamiliar with this hotel until a friend who lives close by recommended that I try it. My daughter & I were both in London for both business purposes and for pleasure with our friends there. This hotel was such a wonderful haven for both of us and in a perfect location. It is very close to the tube, a taxi queue, to some of our favourite restaurants and to many of our friends. The rooms are immaculate, comfortable and so beautifully done that we were both delighted to return there each evening. Each room is in a different scheme with it's color/swatch board outside the door in the hall but all are bright and cheerful - contemporary yet traditional and very spacious. Quite unlike many small hotels in London where the rooms are tiny. The bathrooms are large and the beds are heavenly. The restaurant and common areas are equally fun and inviting and a perfect place to meet a business associate or friend for a cup of tea or a drink. The staff are all more than willing to assist with any need and make on feel that is all they wish to be doing. And Simon Gallic, the general manager, is amazing. He could not be more involved with each guest, their needs, their thoughts and making their stay the best possible. It is truly on par with the very expensive, well known ones, yet this is a far greater value less money.

Room Tip: Even the rooms on the street side are quiet.

Chose this hotel after researching the internet because I wanted a couple of nights in a part of London I know using it as a base to visit our son, go to a cinema and then attend a concert at St Martin in the Fields. Took a single room [305] which although very compact [particularly the ensuite] was very clean and comfortable [great bed!], well decorated and supported by great room service in terms of cleanliness and attention. Perfect for me. Breakfast well done, loved the 'Honesty Bar' concept and the staff were most friendly and helpful. It is well situated just off the Old Brompton Road but quiet with simple access to South Kensington underground. Good to go and explore my old college haunts although the Kings Road is much changed.
