Spent a few days reminding myself how fascinating London is and visiting the old haunts. Blake's was a good base. Small, quaint, perfect if you like the little luxuries but not the flashy soulless hotel rooms the bigger properties offer. It's a little tired. But so was I. My "Parisian Single" had everything I needed (except a bath) but the... More

Whilst browsing online for a chic hotel I came across the very unique Blakes boutique hotel in Kensington The hotel has an all black imposing exterior and the dark, moody palette is continued throughout the interior of the hotel. All 47 rooms are unique in character, with influences from the Far East, Turkey and Russia - opulence, sultry, and charm... More

My partner and I were very disappointed by our experience at Blakes. Although it is in a wonderful location. The hotel itself desperately disappointed us. The room needed a paint job, they had no slipper, dressing gowns or tea, coffee or water in the room. The own brand toiletries were poor quality. The breakfast was expensive and very poor considering... More

We stayed at blakes following our wedding in London and it surpassed all our expectations on every level. The staff were fabulous and helpful and attended to our every need. The room was luxurious, comfortable and one of the most atmospheric hotel rooms we have ever stayed in. We had a directors double which looked out onto the beautiful street... More

Stayed at Blakes in June during Wimbledon with business clients - 9 of us in total. Found the staff incredibly helpful before, during and after our stay and the venue was very atmospheric. Special mention must go to Emilia for not just her helpful manner but also her very warm welcome. Some of the single rooms were quite small, but... More

My husband and I stayed for our anniversary and were kindly upgraded to room 109 which was an amazing.For us a few things stood out which would have made our stay even more comfortable, there was no hanging or unpacking space, no gowns or slippers and did have to wait at least half hour before our room was ready.Having said...

Recently refreshed decor by the inimitable Anouska Hempel herself, Blakes welcomed this weary traveler with wonderful service and even a complimentary drink on the outdoor patio while I decompressed and my bags were taken to my upgraded room (which was small but all I needed with quite a luxurious and up to date bathroom). I should have written this review... More

My partner and are planning our wedding and Blakes was our top choice. The Suites 007 and 003 are gorgeous and Sacha the wedding planner is just brilliant. I work as a wedding planner myself so am used to dealing with hotel planners and Sacha was outstanding from the start. She went out of her way to help us with... More

Incredible hotel - each room is unique but all are expertly decorated to very high standards which is coupled with outstanding service. We wished to have a bottle of champagne to celebrate but weren't sure about the house champagne so they brought us up two glasses to try .. on the house. They remembered us by name each time we...
