We have just returned from a very pleasant stay at Blakes. The location is excellent close enough to the shops but still far enough away from the busy roads. We was taken to our room by a very friendly member of staff, my only comment would be whilst being taken to our room I feel some information about the hotel... More

After reading several reviews and not all of them positive, I have decided to take the risk and book a weekend at The Blakes as a birthday present to my boyfriend. We stayed in room 108 which faces the street and is relatively spacious and not so noisy, even though the windows are old and there is no double glazing.... More

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. A beautiful, elegant suite with a supremely comfortable four poster bed. Blackout curtains ensured a fitful night's sleep. Great dinner in the restaurant with unobtrusive service. Breakfast was slow and leisurely. Absolute luxury, only spoiled by having to return to reality when we stepped outside...

I am resident in London local to Blakes so I have not stayed in one of their rooms but I have eaten here many times and recently hosted an event for my bridesmaids.

The reviews are mixed for this place - I agree it definitely needs some attention and it's shabby in places. Our room was large, clean and we found the bed very comfortable. The bath was huge and it was a pleasure to bathe in it, sadly, the blind was very grubby and the paintwork needs attention. On the plus side,... More

Our room showed some ageing but was well appointed and comfortable. Food is good but predominately used the hotel for breakfasts whilst dinning out at London's numerous restaurants on offer. Within walking distance of various shops and sights it make for a quiet and quaint boutique hotel. Cocktails are superb albeit very pricey.

We stayed at Blakes on our wedding nitgh and couldn't have been better looked after. From champagne in our room on arrival, to tea lights everywhere when we returned from dinner, to a super helpful doorman giving us a Blakes' umbrella as we departed into the London drizzle the next day. Very helpful staff, lovely atmospheric bar/dining room. Our Cardinal... More

We have stayed at Blakes before and the experience is always interesting but sadly on this occasion I began to notice that the kooky quirkiness of this once iconic London hotel was actually looking pretty shabby around the edges. Our suite was on the fourth floor and was pretty much black on black, sadly it was outdated and showing serious... More

We booked this hotel back in July - a non refundable room - to celebrate our 10th anniversary on New Years Eve. It looked perfect for what we wanted and when we got there it didn't disappoint.

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.
