After the first night in a very small room and complaining we have received a marvelous room on the 4th floor with balcony - the staff was very professional, apologizing and offering a bottle of champagne and breakfast , thank you! Quiet location and cosy, good to chill out after a day in the busy city

Stayed here on a Friday night for our special night away without the children and loved it. Staff were wonderful breakfast was amazing it's our new favourite hotel for nights away. Luxury double room was compact but just what we needed, we'll definitely be back.

This is my second visit to Blakes and we loved every minute of our stay. The Hotel Manager and staff made our stay even more enjoyable with late night room-service, amazing servers, the best secret (must order in service in London) soufflé, and a lounge downstairs where everyone is chic in an unpretentious way .. meaning cool. Front Desk helped...

Love this place! The staff is impeccable and very kind. The bar and restaurant are intimate, sexy and with an amazing staff. Great drinks and beautiful wines by the glass.

We visited for our wedding anniversary, choosing a well reputed hotel in the hope a rare weekend away would be the treat we deserved. I can wholeheartedly state that we were in no way disappointed. We had dinner plans elsewhere so can't comment on the food but the hotel and our room (103) were stunning. Service was amazing - friendly,...

We've been coming to Blakes for the last 12 years. That run ended with our last stay. We were greeted at the entrance by a 20 something youngster asking us if we were on the guest list. "The WHAT?"

Beautiful rooms, very nice and considerate staff and an amazing restaurant. Chose to dine in the hotel two nights in a row instead of going. You have to accept the buzz from an active bar and restaurant, but I'm all in.

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.
