We've stayed here several times and each visit confirms it's the right choice. Very tranquil setting yet only a block away from Sth Kensington tube station and multiple dining options of all types. The location is genius and definitely one of the major pluses for...More
From the moment our taxi pulled up the front of this understated South Kensington hotel we knew we had picked the perfect place! It looks like a regular townhouse with pretty little boxwood-filled window boxes, but once inside it transformed into a gorgeous boutique hotel!...More
I have been staying at Number 16 for years and every return just confirms my love for this hotel. The staff is always ready to go the extra mile to make me feel like I am part of the family. I would definitely recommend staying...More
We have stayed here a number of times and keep returning because this boutique hotel is charming (fresh, modern yet inviting interior - not overstuffed or too intricate), well located (in lovely South Kensington and close to a tube stop), well run (thoughtful, friendly, efficient...More
