Ideally located in a quiet part of South Kensington, the 5-star Blakes Hotel is known to be the world's first luxury boutique hotel. Boasting fine dining and sumptuous interior design by Anouska Hempel, it is just over 10 minutes' walk from central London's museum district.

Elegantly styled with unique antiques and rich fabrics, the refined air-conditioned rooms also include a flat-screen TV and an iPod docking station. The beautifully styled bathrooms have complimentary toiletries and a hairdryer. Many rooms feature a four-poster bed and original artwork. A 24-hour room service is available.

Blakes’s sophisticated Asian-style restaurant serves creative, well presented cuisine. Next to the restaurant, the Chinese Room and Bar offers cocktails and fine wines in relaxed surroundings. Set within an exclusive area of London, this unique hotel is only 10 minutes’ walk from stylish bars and the city's lively night life.

Leafy Hyde Park and the historic Royal Albert Hall are both 1 miles from Blakes Hotel. Both South Kensington and Gloucester Road London Tube Station can be reached after a 10-minute walk.

This is our guests' favourite part of London, according to independent reviews.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 8.8 for a two-person trip.
