I was very much looking forward to spending a night at the Blakes. The reason why I came to this hotel in specific is because the garden is where my husband and I got engaged and I wanted to go back for our second anniversary. When I walked in the room I was a bit disappointed to say the least... 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...

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.
