Blakes was created by its owner Anouska Hempel, the internationally renowned British designer. At the time the concept for such a world-class hotel was considered breathtakingly daring. Today Blakes continues in an unrivalled class of its own, and has established a benchmark which any "fashionable small hotel" around the world strives to match.
Anouska Hempel has individually designed each of the 52 bedrooms to her own uncompromising standards. Interiors blend Russian, Eastern European, Colonial, and Turkish influences to stunning effect, creating a caravanserai in which the resting traveller of the global trade routes can enjoy the convenience and high-tech efficiency of modern living amid princely splendour. On the ground floor the courtyard garden, lush with greenery throughout the year, provides a similarly secluded refuge.
Blakes restaurant, presenting a skilful blend of western and oriental traditions complemented by a magnificent wine list, has become one of the most sought-after tables in London, with diners regularly including many of those leading lights of the creative world who select Blakes hotel for its privacy and discretion. Above all, the ever critical and creative eye of its owner ensures that Blakes continues to provide a very particular sense of excitement and adventure, which is only replicated in Blakes sister properties The Hempel in London and the newly-opened Blakes Amsterdam.
