Swish and seductive extravagance in SW3

Flair and flamboyance make seductive Blakes something of a London legend. Decadent and dramatic bedrooms at this original retro boutique hotel are designed to seduce the senses.

Know It All

Hit the Spot
In smartest backstreet Kensington.

Come here for...
● Honeymoon nights. ● Glamorous, don't-get-out-of-bed city weekends.

There's valet parking, a chauffeur-drive service, plus a gym, massage and treatment room. Free wi-fi is available throughout. Blakes also offers a personalised shopping service and complimentary use of London's "Barclays bikes".

Good to know
This is a place for sensualists with cash to splash.


43 rooms and nine suites.

Special features
Signature rooms are four-poster fantasy trips. Rooms have DVD and CD players, satellite television and wi-fi. There’s also private dining in suites, in case you’re trying to keep the paparazzi at bay.

Pillow Talk
Expect plenty of '80s rock chic. The scarlet-walled Cardinal suite scores on boudoir Wow, while Luxury suites have a softer French provençal feel, with gossamer nets and white furnishings. We also loved the Director's doubles with their swan beds or four posters.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
East meets West in Blakes' seductive and moodily dark restaurant, and there’s an eclectic range of dishes to try. Try the miso soup with silken tofu, honey spiced duck with coriander raita and chicken and pomelo salad. If it's too much bother to get dressed, there's 24 hour room service.

Breakfast is served until 11am. 

Room service

Available 24/7.

See & Do

See & Do
What’s not to do around here? You’re minutes from London’s museum country (V&A, Natural History and Science museums) and a short tube ride from Hyde Park Corner, Buckingham Palace and the West End.

Blakes is currently building a spa and fitness suite, due to open shortly.  There is a small fitness room on site.

Diary Dates
Take in the heady scents of the famous Chelsea Flower Show.

Fight for tickets to Wimbledon – even if it’s just for the strawberries and cream.
