Sixteen Reasons…

Another day gone in the beautiful city of London. It was overcast today (surprise, surprise) but I have to say, the clouds are a welcome change from the endless sunshine that radiates through Los Angeles. After a solid day of sightseeing, I was able to pop into a hotel I had been reading about called The Number Sixteen, which is located nearby South Kensington. The hotel is one of several in and around London owned by The Firmdale Hotel Group. In total, they operate six hotels, each of which are located in different but equally quaint and stylish part of London. There really is one for almost any place you would want to stay. The Number Sixteen was relatively close to where I was camping out at The K West so I decided to pay them a visit.

The hotel itself is housed in four separate townhouses along a quite little street in South Kensington in London’s West End. There are 42 rooms in total, each individually and uniquely decorated in in classic English country style. The result is nothing short of adorable, with some room combining soft pinks and blues while others were done in classic black and white.

Perhaps the best part of this hotel is the private garden, which is a perfect place to relax, have a drink and enjoy the beautiful foliage.

The hotel is conveniently located near the tube station and it is within walking distance from many of the great shops and attractions in the West End. This is a good place to stay if you have never been here before and you are looking to stay off the beaten tourist track. The hotel is that great combo of a place that is well situated to everything you would want to see while still being far enough away to give the guest some peace and quiet amidst a bustling city. 

If staying in the West End does not suit you, there are five other Firmdale Hotels to chose from. They include The Soho Hotel, Haymarket Hotel, Covent Garden Hotel, Knightsbridge Hotel and Charlotte Street Hotel. I have heard good things about the other hotels but I didn’t have a chance to check them all out. The Number Sixteen definitely peaked my interest though and I hope to actually stay here next time, rather than just tour the place. Check out some pics:
