Dear Manager, I understand that the hotel has been lately refurbished -by the way, your bar is beautiful !-, but please, tell the nice Italian staff downstairs that if one client orders some food at 1am, it's because he's hungry, which often happens when one drinks a lot, he might not appreciate more than an hour of waiting :-( Also,...

We spent an important anniversary at Blakes - we were given the Corfu Suite which was suitably elegant and romantic. The room was beautiful and extremely comfortable. The staff are exceptionally attentive, but not intrusive. The decor throughout the hotel is beautiful. We will definitely return.

Our two-night stay at the Blakes was completely enjoyable. The staff is super friendly with great attention to detail. The lobby, grounds and rooms are all designed beautifully. Breakfast, appetizers at the bar, wine, cocktails, all tasty and freshly made. We would love to stay here again. The only teensy negative was a small desk, in a small room. The... More

I had some free time in London after a recent work trip and checked into Blakes for three nights after reading about it on the "Cool Cities" app. I loved the quirky, cozy, and elegant spaces in the hotel -- my room, the restaurant, the small but peaceful back garden -- and found the staff very friendly and helpful.

A lovely hotel in a great location. Our room, booked for our honeymoon, was lovely, lots of white drapery and a well dressed room. Nespresso machine (but no fresh milk unless requested) which is always a plus. The staff were excellent, very friendly and could not be more helpful, we felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. We didn't... More

I was surprised by my partner with a midweek treat of an overnight stay at Blakes. I have to say I was not sure quite what to expect. But what a delightful hidden gem.

One of those places that reminds me of one of Tina Turner's song: Simply the best! Dark and sexy with a nice vibrant energy and wonderful service. Oh forgot to mention the delicious food. Loved it back then, love it even more nowadays!

We stayed at Blake's for a couple of nights while passing through London in August. We had a nice suite on one of the uppermost floors. While I liked the room, I thought the bathroom was the showstopper - it was spacious, super modern and beautifully designed.

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.
