I stayed at Blakes for my honeymoon in London 18 years ago and returning recently was not a disappointment. The most memorable part is the scent of oranges when you enter the lobby combined with the tiny lovebirds nesting near the front desk. The location is superb, the service exceptional and the room which was a small suite was well... More

A fancy-trendy boutique hotel at the heart of Chelsea. Located on a nice and quiet street, the hotel is boutique style with baroque/empire decoration. I had a standard room on the 4th floor, featuring a full bed, a small couch, B&O TV and a huge beautiful/modern white marble bathroom with both thub and walk in shower (almost half of the... More

Nice location and super design. BUT: expensive, rooms are very small, common areas are tiny (the lobby is just ridiculous) and the restaurant is in the basement, breakfast is terrible. You can tell that they have arranged the space in order to maximize revenue. Result is an unwelcoming feeling. Summary in three words: pretentious "boutique hotel". Won't go back. Not... More

A surprise trip was in order for my girlfriend and I. After doing some searching, a friend recommended (as a joke) that I get "the sexiest hotel room in the world", and sent a link to the White Room at Blake's. Stunning. Not a single detail spared. The reviews raved. And although the cost is not for the faint of... More

I stayed in Blakes with my wife for one night in a signature suite. We arrived late and were checked in quickly by the friendly receptionist. Our suite was spotless, fresh, comfortable and spacious. The hotel has arranged roses, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne for us as we were celebrating our wedding. We were impressed by the whole room design... More

Blakes hotel has character and style. We were upgraded to room 005, which is a top suite and is stunning. Black and white, with mirrored shutters and doors; a large slate bathroom with concealed lighting; a generous sized sitting/dining room and cute mirrored bar in the entrance - wow! The service was excellent from beginning to end, but the 2... More

A charming little hotel, I really love the interior design. The food is very good and the staff are very polite and helpful. I would definitely come back. I only wish the rooms were a bit bigger, and if the windows were soundproof, you can hear almost everything going on outside from the second floor. Nonetheless, my over all experience... More

Stayed here for 6 nights in a suite. No matter what glory and praise this hotel has received, they belong to the past. The hotel is now pretty run down, with smelly rooms, worn-down carpet, and broken furniture. Supplies in the room are lacking. Not to mention the lack of tea and coffee making machine, it even does not have... More

Dear Maurice L, Thank you for your feedback. I am disappointed to hear your expectations were not met and that you did not enjoy the experience that we strive to provide. The hotel was created in 1978, however refurbished 2 years ago with the inclusions of new Bangs & Olufsen entertainment systems. Part of our maintenance procedure is to check... More

I was looking forward to an elegant, cool and fashionable boutique hotel in London for my much anticipated week in Summer. The hotel website showed gorgeous cream breezy suites with clean natural decor and flowing white curtains on a four poster bed and so I requested one of those suites and could wait to get there. My car pick up... More

This is a unique little gem, tucked away on a quiet street, yet very close to the bustle of South Kensington and Knightsbridge. The staff were lovely, and the room we stayed in (each one is unique) was romantic -- four poster bed, roses and chocolate-dipped strawberries on arrival, and a beautiful bath. We had breakfast in the courtyard the... More
