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.

I stayed at Blake's for one night and running my own interior design company I chose this hotel specifically to experience Anouska Hempel's design. The rooms are decorated in beautiful greys and gold with perfect lighting, Bang & Olufsen TV and sound system and the unique furniture and numerous accessories add character. Great restaurant, one of the most secluded and... More

This hotel has been around for a good few years and I always meant to stay. A short trip to London became a perfect excuse and i booked into one of the single rooms, mine the contemporary on the 2nd floor. The room was compact, but perfect for one. Its an old victorian terrace, so dont expect a multimedia console... More

We stayed at Blakes for one night whilst visiting London. We were very excited to be staying at this boutique hotel. Alas we were a little disappointed. I'm not sure if we were expecting too much, but what we did get was as I had previously said 'a little disappointing'. Whilst the hotel is comfortable and very clean, we felt... More

Went for cocktails before dinner at this hotel last night last minute for a friends birthday. This is a beautiful hotel set away from the bustle of Gloucester road and is lovely. Cocktails were all absolutely delicious. The Roland Garden champagne cocktail was particularly good. Staff were chatty, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Will definitely return when I'm in the area.

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.
