My second stay at Blakes”

Blakes is a lovely boutique hotel at the heart of London. It is walking distance from most places, and very close to the Gloucester tube station. The rooms are romantic, and the staff are always ready to help. My second stay in less than a year, enjoyed it thoroughly.

beautiful design, broken things”

This was the first time I was traveling alone in about 6 years (children stayed at home), the design of this hotel is SO COOL. I fully recommend staying here, the one issue was that things broke: the elevator didn't work for a few days, there was loud construction happening during the day across the way, and the windows were being washed during my stay. All these things combined would have annoyed any traveler but I was excited to be in a foreign city. Had everything been working it would have been perfect. Oh and the staff were truly the best, so kind, always asking if I needed anything, they were top notch.

Romantic hideaway in London ”

Location, bar staff service, ambience

Great location, eclectic cool Asian inspired decor, attentive laid back staff, clubby atmosphere. In room service a bit of a disappointment, repeated errors, lukewarm drinks. Pricing fine but I expect standards to match. Departure ; concierge services less than overwhelming felt a bit out of sight out of mind..! Stay there again - would need guarantees that these niggles are sorted, fundamentally these are Quality management issues that should not be allowed to let a nascent institution down.

Had a wonderful stay here. Service was fantastic. It definitely is "cool." Families would not like it here, thank goodness. The last thing I wanted was a bunch of crying babies and strollers everywhere. That would have been annoying. It's a 9 min walk to nearest tube station. I did not mind, but some people might. I loved my room. I loved the big tub. I wished they had a gym.

Very small room (double luxury). Asked in advance to have room towards street but was given another location without explanation. Room a bit worn but still stylish and very clean. Except for a vibrant bar and breakfast/ dinner room there are no facilities in hotel whatsoever. Service nice and friendly but not really "5 star".

Uncomfortable cluttered dark gloomy rooms., with appalling lighting, and worse than that - impossible to even find or work the light switches. Were moved to a second room when we didn't like the first one., and again had to request help in the middle of the night to get the lights turned off. And both times even the staff couldn't work out how to do it. The rooms are all style over substance. Nothing works. Never again.
