Lovely hotel, staff, and location. A perfect place to stay in London, have a wonderful stroll, and eat & drink at fantastic local pubs and restaurants. The springtime weather was kind and the cherry blossoms trees where exploding with joy -- an ideal trip for yourself or a couple.

We stayed for just one night in the Moroccan room and had dinner in the restaurant. All the staff were very friendly and efficient - they made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived at midday we wanted something to eat - we sat in the rear courtyard which was lovely - we were then given... More

I just returned home from a lovely stay at Blakes Hotel, which I have stayed at for the first time. Everything was perfect plus I felt very welcome at any time in an almost familiar ambience. On top of that, this place is also pretty stylish without trying too hard. Will be back soon!

Was ,looking forward to staying in one of the dark deco rooms with my family. The whole hotel is worn and in the room materials torn, paint peeling off etc giving an overall dirty feeling so much so I lost the £300. I paid for the next night and booked another hotel. Not a family hotel and the restaurant is... More

My wife and I attended a wedding in Chelsea and decided to book a signature suite at Blakes for the night. Let's just say the website pictures, which are fantastic, do not do the reality justice. The look and feel of the place is incredible, and the staff are ever so friendly and accommodating. We had an amazing experience and... More

A beautiful hotel with amazing and very unique design. Each room is in a different style, with every detail thought through. The food in the restaurant is delicious and beautifully served, and the Chinese Room is probably the most romantic place for drinks and cocktails in London !

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
