“Number Sixteen is a home away from home. The converted town house is bursting with colour, a showcase of owner, Kit Kemp’s gorgeous interior design - guests can enjoy her delicious Rik Rak bath products and Miller Harris scents waft through the hotel. There is nothing more relaxing than putting your feet up in the cosy sitting room after a day’s sightseeing, and there’s even an honesty bar so you can help yourself to a drink.”
Located in the heart of the upmarket neighbourhood of South Kensington, close to shops, museums and key attractions, Number Sixteen is a luxury boutique hotel offering warm hospitality, impeccable service and excellent facilities. Housed in a Victorian white stucco townhouse with a delightful, tree-lined garden, the hotel’s subtle but graceful contemporary English style epitomises urban chic.
Number Sixteen’s 41 Individually designed rooms are elegant and stylish, and have been designed with plush furnishings, fine linens, stunning granite and oak bathrooms, and state-of-the-art amenities as standard. Interconnecting rooms are available for families.
Although there isn’t a restaurant, the hotel does provide full 24-hour room service offering a simple but delicious menu. Enjoy a superb buffet breakfast in the conservatory or afternoon tea in the garden on warm summer days. There are plenty of fabulous cafés, top restaurants and bars right on the doorstep.
Stroll through Kensington Gardens, visit the Victoria & Albert or Natural History museums, or head into Knightsbridge for a spot of shopping. Back at Number Sixteen, unwind in the tranquil garden or indulge in an in-room massage.
