You can see and feel that it has been a fantastic place but it screems for renovation... The restaurant is simply old and even not really clean and the food was expensive and bad quality. The rooms are very nice and very small but here also not worth a five star rating.

This is the perfect boutique hotel. The design is perfect but the service and quality are perfect too. The staff are discreet and professional . The food is absolutely outstanding and the out door area is just beautiful . "Style and substance" A rare gem.

Blakes sets the standard. The rooms are small but very tastefully done. The service is impeccable and they know how to treat returning guests. We've stayed here 15 times or more. The tube is about a 10 min walk from Blakes. I suggest using London Heathrow Cars to/from Heathrow or Gatwick.

Some of the girls in our family met up for a delicious lunch at this stunning restaurant. We had booked the gazebo in advance which was decorated with dried flowers, it was amazing. We were all elated by the beauty. We requested a bottle of French rose wich was served perfectly chilled. The meals that we ordered were delicious and... More

I've always wanted to try out a design hotel and It was great. I received emails on my concerns in when ill arrive and instructions in getting to places I would like to go during the trip, prior to my arrival. However, I was a little surprise seeing the bathtub wasn't so clean, and i had problems figuring how to... More

What a stunning boutique beauty hotel. Each room is individually designed with subtle and discreet five star service at its best. My favorite suite is the Corfu suite. Its been a few years since we've been there but it most certainly stands out as a very fond hotel experience. Highly recommended.

What a great stay for a short trip. I have stayed at boutiques from all over the world and this is one of my favorites. The room was very much old world elegance meets modern chic. I felt at home upon arrival and even though the car service failed to pick me up from the airport on time, the hotel... More

I stayed at this hotel on two separate occasions in February/ March through a bit of turmoil at home - absolute quality. Staff were amazing - rooms brilliant - spotlessly clean. This hotel has true soul and I loved being there - an oasis and probably one of the best hotels in London. There are few places that can match... More

Quiet, out of the hectic city. Great place for romantic rendezvous or business casual drink in bar. Relaxing , lovely boutique hotel. Front desk a bit too serious . Fashionable but not commercial more unique and special.

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.
