Blakes has been around for a long time. I first lived in London in 1988 and by then, it had already been around for a while. It was unusual then--a designer boutique hotel that at the time was one of few around anywhere. Now, every major city has them, and I do my best to seek them out, but that... More

I loved virtually everything about this hotel. It has a very sophisticated, masculine vibe which appealed to me as a solo traveler to London this time. The decor is quite dark and moody, the staff always present but never intrusive. I booked a luxury king room with double French windows that *surprise* actually opened and allowed you to step outside... More

Blakes is a wonderful boutique hotel. The rooms are amazing and decorated just to our taste, with each one offering something different. Suite 003 is stunning and wonderful for special occasions. The hotel has lots of great areas, the Chinese restaurant and birdcage in the stunning gardens are a must see. If you have a special event to arrange (in... More

The most beautiful and welcoming hotel I have ever stayed in. Our room was fabulous - rich reds, a giant bed, a freestanding bath in the bedroom and our own patio overlooking the courtyard. Room 504 was a recommendation from the reservations supervisor Elisa, and we weren't disappointed! She had even arranged for a birthday cake for my husband on... More

Lovely hotel, staff, and location. A perfect place to stay in London, have a wonderful stroll, and eat & drink at fantastic local pubs and restaurants. The springtime weather was kind and the cherry blossom trees where exploding with joy -- an ideal trip for yourself or a couple.

We stayed for just one night in the Moroccan room and had dinner in the restaurant. All the staff were very friendly and efficient - they made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived at midday we wanted something to eat - we sat in the rear courtyard which was lovely - we were then given... More

I just returned home from a lovely stay at Blakes Hotel, which I have stayed at for the first time. Everything was perfect plus I felt very welcome at any time in an almost familiar ambience. On top of that, this place is also pretty stylish without trying too hard. Will be back soon!

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.
