When in London I always stay at Blakes, both for business and leisure trips. Rooms are charming and extremely cool, although usually very dark, which is great for me, but does not suit everyone. Service is extremely professional throughout, reception staff is the best I have seen in London, as well as room service, which is quick, discreet, and extremely... More

This famous hotel in Kensington first put us in room 501, a semi-basement room with a view on the tires of cars and motorcycles parked immediately behind. Tiny and painted in black, as if it were not dark enough already! Upon complaining, we were offered room 301, which was still tiny and black, but at least looked out on the... More

The last time I stayed here was over 10 years ago and then the room I stayed in looked tired. This time however the room, (a different one), looked a lot fresher and cleaner. So no complaints there. A lovely comfortable bed and adequate shower room. Service is as good as ever at reception and in the bar downstairs, even... More

I've shot here several times for photoshoots, parties and weddings, and the service has always been wonderful. It's incredibly atmospheric and photogenic, too. I know several couples who've been married here and all have been pleased.

I had the pleasure of enjoying a wonderful dinner in the basement restaurant of this hotel to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant and bar had a great ambience, the food and wine was just perfect, especially the caramel soufflé which was heavenly! I will certainly go there again and have no hesitation in recommending this establishment.

Sadly I only had a single room in the hotel, which has a fabulous reception area and restaurant. Felt like I was on a film set, but as for my room, the darkness of the décor didn't suit the small size. The bed was comfortable but there wasn't a head board only a shelf behind the bed which meant though... More

For our 14th wedding anniversary my husband David booked us into Blakes. We had room 305 with a beautiful four poster bed, decorated in moody and sensuous in black and gold with old fashioned deeds of land as wallpaper.

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.
