Hotel Spotlight: Blakes London

Blakes London

My room at Blakes

Described as the world’s first luxury boutique hotel, the South Kensington-based Blakes London is truly something special. Designed by the legendary Anoushka Hempel in 1978, it makes you feel like you’ve walked into a bohemian, chic episode of Downton Abbey. Few hotels can represent your home away from home but with its authenticity and non-staged service, Blakes is one of them! This is the place where I’ll return to years from now to write my memoirs… -Jesse
