Part of the Firmdale Hotel Group, known for their contemporary flair, Number Sixteen is located in South Kensington, near the Museum of Science, Hyde Park, and shopping at Harrods. All of the 42 bedrooms in this white stucco building are sumptuous escapes from the hustle and bustle of the city. For families, opt for two adjoining rooms and be sure to book afternoon tea in the outdoor garden.

This was positively one of the best hotels I've been. The decor is beautiful, the location is unbeatable (Victoria and Albert is close by) and the staff is marvelous. Fanny, the general manager, runs the hotel like clock work and is around to check everything. I stayed only two nights but I noticed that most of the guests were their several times... it goes to show how well they treat their clients.
HIdden along a row of white buildings, this hotel with small cafe is a gem. Lovely dining room with garden space just outside; attentive, helpful staff served me and my daughter a wonderful afternoon tea. Beautifully arranged, ample serving for two on a three-tiered serving dish. Delicious hot tea and hot cocoa rounded out the meal. (A full menu is available.)
