The 45 rooms have all been individually designed with no two the same. Most take inspiration from a different area of the globe, and all are decidedly elegant. Beds are kitted out with premium bedding, and bathrooms are beautifully designed with the extra treat of fluffy bathrobes.
‘Glamourous’ just about sums up this stylish design hotel. Located in the trendy South Kensington, Blakes is just as, if not more, luxe than its surroundings; from the sleek marble bar and monochrome dining room, to the glittering chandeliers and quirky Mediterranean garden.
The city spot was dreamed up by celebrated interior designer Anouska Hempel, who has decked out the hotel with bold and elegant décor. Everything has been thought through; from the blooming garden with humongous birdcage to the unique bedrooms inspired by places all over the globe.
Take a book to the quirky garden and relax under the leafy palms. Alternatively, get out your guide book and explore London’s whirlwind of landmarks - the National History Museum, Albert Hall and designer shops of Chelsea are all nearby.
Blakes Restaurant is a rather decadent affair, with a slick black and gold colour palette, and polished marble bar - its popularity with the locals is a testament to its excellence. In the mornings, an extensive menu full of breakfast classics and healthy picks is served.
