I used to be a long term guest of Blakes and have not been there so much recently, it changed and there were better options available but I just returned and it is safe to say Blakes is back. The staff from the moment we arrived were very attentive, professional and so helpful. Always a smile from everyone. The room...

This is in fact the "Anti- Hotel"....I have stayed here 100's of nights and they were all historic! The staff treat everyone like family and the owners are the kindest and most accommodating hoteliers i have come across anywhere in the world. This is the most charming city hotel one could dream of. The rooms are each a work of...

Our stay at Blakes Hotel was for 5 nights over New Years Eve. The hotel location is perfectly situated in South Kensington and near to Chelsea with easy accessibility to great museums and the parks. Being on a quiet residential street, the hotel allows for a more local experience than purely a tourist experience. The hotel staff were very friendly...

What can I say a perfect sophisticated and stylish hotel in the heart of Chelsea. Impeccable service back up with outstanding cuisine our room on the lower ground floor was fit for royalty. We had a themed suited accessed from outside the hotel lobby. The TV although being B&O was a little small.

If you want to stay somewhere in London convenient for the restaurants and museums of South Kensington, or even a run in Hyde Park, then Blakes is perfect. Our room was great, the bed comfortable, and the bathroom magical. The staff were friendly and professional too.

Good, quiet location is the only compliment I can pay to this hotel. They have a 2 day cancellation policy and after our international flight was delayed due to mechanical issues - they would not accommodate us in anyway. So paid two full price nights for staying one night. They made no reference to the issue when we arrived -...

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood 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.
