Number Sixteen in South Kensington offers comfortable and stylish surroundings with individually styled rooms. It is one of a number of hotels from the Firmdale Group, operated by husband and wife team, Tim and Kit Kemp. This Victorian building is situated on a quiet side street that is just a few minutes on foot from South Kensington tube station and the Natural History Museum, whilst Harrods is only slightly further away.


Noted for her colourful and feminine style, Kit Kemp designs all of the rooms in all of the Firmdale hotels. Each one is different with whimsical patterns on the walls and fabrics and vibrant shades of pinks and purples found throughout. In-room facilities include a flat screen LCD television with a DVD/CD player, an iPod docking station, a Tivoli radio and a desk. A DVD library and a Nintendo Wii are also available on request.

As with many London hotels, many of the rooms within Number Sixteen are small. Single Rooms offer just 8 square metres of space. Queen, Superior, Luxury and Deluxe rooms are also available, the latter category offering the most amount of space with a King size bed and comfortable armchairs. All rooms have en-suite bathroom facilities with granite and oak fittings and some rooms benefit from private balconies.

Restaurants and Bars

Number Sixteen lacks a restaurant, but makes up for this with a 24-hour room service menu that has an extensive choice, including grilled sandwiches, salads and main meals with British and international choices available. If preferred, guests can also choose to dine in one of the public areas, such as the lounge where there is also an honesty bar. Afternoon Tea is additionally served in the public areas and is available all day long. Children are catered for well with their own menu consisting of classic children’s favourites.

Additional Facilities and Services

Number Sixteen has a spacious private garden for the exclusive use of guests. During the summer months, guests can dine here.

In-room spa treatments are provided through Temple Spa with various therapies available, including massage and body scrubs. Additional charges apply.
