Usually our regular hotel/holiday slot is titled leaving London however we feel that sometimes a change is as good as a holiday and if you can see London through the eyes of an early adopter rather than the drudge of the workers in the city then perfect.

Number Sixteen will allow you to do just that. So wether you're reading this planning a trip to London (as we know many of you do) or reading it thinking you just need a break from your poky flat, then read on!

No16 Bedroom 101 HR

Number Sixteen is part of the Firmdale Group and offers wonderfully designed rooms and even a garden in the heart of South Kensington, London.

As we mentioned - if you are one of the many few that lives in London sharing a flat with no outside space to speak of then this will be your personal slice of living heaven for you stay.

The interior design which you simply can't miss throughout has been created by owner, Kit Kemp. If you get home and feel that your house is a little lack lustre after bathing in a wash of colours during your Number Sixteen stay then not to worry, you can buy some of the Kit Kemp collections used throughout the hotel yourself - or her book and gather some inspiration for your own little pad.

If you are concerned about leaving canine friends at home then don't be - the hotel allows small dogs in the rooms which is a great bonus to anyone the knows the trials and tribulations of finding doggy cover.

No16 Garden MR R

So with any concerns put aside you can get on with enjoying a stay in some of the most colourful sumptuousness we have come across in our hotel travels.

You have the choice to sit tranquil and quiet in the courtyard garden behind the hotel - making full use of the wonderful afternoon tea on the hotel menu or wonder out the front of the hotel to the more bustling but still relaxing South Kensington Streets. There are bars, restaurants, coffee shops and pubs a plenty in the vicinity and you are a stones through away from Hyde Park and the Natural History Museum. Both brilliant days out.

NO16 Drawing Room NEW MR

If you just want to lounge around the hotel - which you may do seeing as it is so beautiful then there are beauty treatments available in for form of Soholistic. There are no special treatment rooms at Number Sixteen - rather you have your chosen treatments in the comfort of your own room - wonderful!

Firmdale Hotels partner with Temple Spa to provide a unisex range of highly advanced products and treatments created to combat the stresses and strains of everyday life, perfect for renewing your London living love. At Number Sixteen you will get the very best in anti-ageing skin care, aromatherapy and anti-oxidants without leaving your room.
