Lonely Planet review

With uplifting splashes of colour, choice art and a sophisticated-but-fun design ethos, ravishing Number Sixteen is four properties in one and a lovely (and rather labyrinthine) place to stay. There are 41 individually designed rooms, a cosy drawing room and a fully stocked library. And wait till you see the idyllic, long back garden set around a fish pond, or have breakfast in the light-filled conservatory.

Our independent authors have visited Number Sixteen and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Kensington & Hyde Park.

Featuring ultra-chic interiors and a private garden, Number Sixteen offers glamorous accommodation in cosmopolitan South Kensington. The Victorian property provides 24-hour room service, minibars and iPod docking stations in the rooms.
