Situated a stone’s throw from Regent’s Park in South Kensington, Blakes Hotel has attracted an A-List of celebrities since its 1981 opening. Designed by London actress-turned-hotelier Anouska Hempel, the property stakes claim to a series of Victorian houses in a residential stretch of mansions. Each of its 51 rooms are uniquely decorated and inspired by a different country. Valued at £30,000 Hasten beds from Sweden are a luxury amenity. The menu at Blakes restaurant calls on culinary influences from the East and West; its most famous dish is a blackened cod with a miso and ginger sauce.

Room to Book:

Suite No. 007 is where Victoria and David Beckham stay.

Insider Tip:

For a swanky souvenir, you can purchase replicas of the hotel’s furniture items.
