Number Sixteen Hotel Review

: Number Sixteen is undoubtedly the most upscale bed-and-breakfast in Sumner Place, a smart, leafy street in South Kensington. Owned by husband and wife team, Tim and Kit Kemp, who have cornered the boutique hotel market in London, this beautiful property ticks all the boxes. The 41 bedrooms are equipped with Wi-Fi (chargeable), iPod docking stations and flat screen TVs. Showcasing Kit Kemp's eye for the unique, the drawing room features a painting of huge colorful insects, while the armchairs and curtains are covered in shocking pink florals. Guests have access to an honesty bar in the library. The ample-size rooms feature attractive chintz-covered furniture, handpicked by Kit, giving the hotel a sense of personal attention and intimacy that brings guests back time and again.
