I was traveling to London for the World Travel Market Show and my husband wanted to tag along. Since he and my 5-year-old daughter hadn't seen London, I brought them along so they could sightsee while I worked. The Blades Hotel met all our needs. Very close to the Victoria Tube station, which is a hub for many lines, the Blades is a great neighborhood in Kensington--close to restaurants, transport and shopping. The staff is all lovely: very friendly and accommodating. Kevin, the proprietor, takes good care to help you make the most of your trip. For example, my husband was going to take my daughter up to see the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. Kevin suggested that she might be more interested in seeing the changing of the Horse Guard, which is just as beautiful, but with better access and a clearer vantage point for a small child. He was right. As for the accommodations, the rooms are clean and well appointed. Breakfasts are simple but quality. We will definitely stay here again (Note: While this hotel is highly recommended, note that it is "low frills". So if you're looking for a chocolate on your pillow, stay elsewhere. But if you want a well-located, clean, friendly and comfortable (and well-priced) hotel, the Blades is your place.)
