My sister and I came to stay at Blakes for 2 nights and it was a really wonderful experience! The staff were super attentive and professional. Little communal terrace is a little haven from the busy London streets, and the bar and restaurant is a super cool place to chill in and experience one of their amazing cocktails. Would definitely...

I was impressed with Starwoods recommendation, but I was very disappointed with my stay. The staff at the front desk were not professional when it come to how to treat Starwoods Platinum Customers!!!! The wifi is snail speed. The room is tiny. The AC hardly cool the room. The bathroom was the only nice thing.

Beautiful bespoke boutique hotel. With non intrusive but attentive service. Amazing and individually unique rooms, makes you want to visit them all! Highly recommend this hotel for staying at, dropping in for a drink at, hiring out the downstairs lounge, supping on the upstairs patio or hanging out on back terrace for a gathering or party.

What a great start to our Euro trip! This hotel really set the standard. Very cute boutique with fantastic friendly staff who helped us throughout our stay. There was a bit of a stuff up in the beginning but we ended up with a better room than we had booked. It's also in a fantastic location and isn't ridiculously busy... More

This was our second visit to Blakes. (It should have been our third, but our planned visit last Feb was cancelled at short notice as my mother was suddenly taken terminally ill.

My self and my two adult daughters stayed for one night. The room was fabulous and all the staff were exceptionally helpful. Great choice for breakfast ( a wide range of traditional and healthy breakfast options) Cocktails (in the evening!)were amazing! Loved the design and in a quiet area. Definitely will be back

We stayed at Blakes Hotel on 2nd August with our two daughters and the girls had a room adjoining ours. While this isn't a place you would see lots of families the staff couldn't have been nicer with the children and they absolutely loved it.

After a very long flight from Los Angeles, we were welcomed by helpful friendly staff from the moment the taxi door opened, to the reception desk greetings, to the complimentary cocktail at the lobby bar and to our delivered baggage waiting for us when we reached our room.

If you are looking for a place that has a great vibe, design, and friendly professional accommodating staff, look no further. The staff could not have been friendlier and more efficient (which doesn't always go hand in hand). Our room was inviting, clean, spacious, and quiet. We really enjoyed the courtyard as well as the roof terrace. The bar was... More

The staff are delightful, endlessly helpful but unobtrusive. Our bedroom & en suite were extremely comfortable, with modern luxury, nothing skimped. Dinner & breakfast were generous, elegant & delicious. We were made to feel relaxed and at home.

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.
