Kensington Hotel Firmdale

Number Sixteen, South Kensington, London Hotel Reviews

Knightsbridge Hotel – London Knightsbridge Hotel - London, United Kingdom - Mr Mrs Smith

"Three elegant white-stucco town houses in South Kensington have been combined to make this beautiful and intimate room hotel. The fresh decor adds a twist of the modern to traditional English style, but the true glory of this hotel is the enormous garden at the back. Full of fountains and rambling roses, it has a glassed-in pergola where breakfast is served."

"Number Sixteen represents a different sort of British hospitality, a more discreet, cozy and make-yourself-at-home kind, with an honesty bar, tree-filled garden and roaring fireplace in the chic but comfortable drawing room. The rooms are charming, linked through three landmark Victorian town houses with exemplary beds. That it is set in South Kensington, a chic neighborhood with a mix of residences and shops and close to many museums adds to the appeal."

"The pristine rooms have been individually designed by Firmdale's co-owner, Kit Kemp. Pretty shell buttons stitched on to curtains and colourful glass beads on cushions give the rooms a feminine quality, while bold prints and trademark flourishes such as oversized headboards mean they don't feel twee. Quality beds and linen make them supremely comfortable and the shiny granite bathrooms come with fancy toiletries."

Time Out
Tim and Kit Kemp’s luxurious modern English hotels are an interior decorator’s dream: trouble is, they’re too expensive for ordinary mortals. But not any more: this gorgeous B&B has all the decorative genius of the Firmdale chain, but at a greatly reduced price. More than any of the Kemps’ hotels, this one has a garden-fresh appeal: the drawing room has paintings of butterflies and birds, not to mention fresh sunflowers, and the bedrooms have a summery look, with subtle floral patterns and tasteful colour combinations: cream, olive greens, purples."

Which hotel in South Kensington is cheap and advisable for a tourist for 2 nights? | Yahoo Answers

The Hotel St. Simeon is a Bed and Breakfast in South Kensington that is located a short walk from Gloucester Road Tube Station. Here is the website:
Single ensuite rooms start at 40 pounds which is very cheap for London. I have stayed in this hotel and really enjoyed it. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was clean with a television and breakfast was included and very good. There are lots of stairs though so if you have a health condition or anything that requires you to stay on a lower floor you may want to mention this at booking.
Good Luck!
