Lovely small hotel, great location
This is a gorgeous smaller B&B style hotel. Beautiful and interesting decor in room and all common areas. There are 2 lounges- sitting areas where you can relax at the end of the day with tea or a deink. Staff always very pleasant and helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom a bit small by North American standards but had everything and looked almost brand new. Location is great. A 2 minute walk to tube for easy access to Heathrow and the rest of the city. Walking distance to major museums. Overall a great hotel. Will definitely return.

Lovely small hotel
Lovely small hotel in a perfect area, near the train and shops/restaurants of South Kensington. The room was very cozy and quiet and had a great shower. My only comment would be that the breakfast isn't suitable if you're gluten and dairy free - there are none of the usual breakfast buffet protein options, such as hard boiled eggs, salmon or cold cuts - only fruit, which was surprising considering the price. You can pay for a hot meal, but I was told that comes with a 5.5 quid surcharge. Next time I'd skip breakfast at the hotel and eat out somewhere in the area.

Very good 8.0
This is my second stay at the #16 hotel. The location can't be beat just a few 100 feet from South Kensington underground station. The hotel amenities are lovely and the room was comfortable, clean and modern. My only reservation, London was experiencing a heat wave during my stay and when I checked in I was not offered any water. I had to dip into the mini bar in my room to hydrate. Small hiccup but those minor details make all the difference.

Easily the best hotel in London. Great location right around the corner from restaurants and a convenient tube station. Spacious and comfortable rooms. Fantastic interior courtyard, which is a welcome oasis from the chaos that can prevail in London. And the most attentive, accommodating, yet never overbearing staff. The hotel itself is a gem, yet it is the staff that made Number Sixteen a true Five Star experience. We will never stay anywhere else while in London.

I have stayed at Number Sixteen at least 4 times a year over the last 7 years and I still believe it is one of the best hotels in London if you want to feel at home and at ease.
