Its uncompromising stand on privacy has made it the London base for film stars musicians and all the top designers earning its reputation as The Couture Hotel.Sympathetically converted from a collection of period Victorian town houses Blakes is now established and recognized as totally unique and has revolutionized and influenced the concept of the small luxury hotel worldwide. Blakes is a seductive design journey through India China Indonesia Thailand Cambodia and on to the Pyramids back through Italy ending up in the heart of London. An elegant eclectic ethnic picture reflected in the abundance and luxury of accessories furniture and artifacts found all over the world by Anouska Hempel herself over the many years of her far flung travels. It evokes past and current intrigues and dark mysteries. The Opium Den that is The Chinese Room sits next to the critically acclaimed restaurant adorned in luxurious soft furnishings and a myriad of slipper orchids where candles and books are in profusion stacked high on the squat tables waiting for guests to leaf through their exotic pages. Chinese ancestors smile knowingly down from the walls black lacquer trays and colourful canap?s gives the perfect background for the gentle and elegant service that glides unobtrusively from room to room giving the most discreet attention one could ever wish for. Yet at the same time the place is busy bustling bohemian and beautiful. The room itself is the epitome of decadence and comfort dedicated to the likes of Chanel and Dietrich and is the place to be before or after enjoying the delights of an evening in London. Marlene herself is rumoured to appear under certain lights and influences leaning seductively on the piano. During 2011 Blakes Hotel London undertook a refurbishment to reinstate its iconic boutique status in Kensington which will compliment the London Olympics as a base for athletes musicians and rock star s to enjoy in true Anouska Hempel fashion!
