40 Winks is another world -- perfectly located in the East End and sumptuously appointed. I will dream of the bath tub and lovely sheets. David was a font of information about London and all it has to offer. So glad that I sought it out.

we had a pleasant stay at the home from David. He is a elegant host, who gave a lot of helpful tips to explore the area of East London. The rooms were tastefully furnished - I especially love the bathroom! We really enjoyed our days at this wonderful location. Highy remommended!

Just a few minutes away from colorful Stepney Green tube station, you will find a tall black door with a small sign on the right that says '40 Winks'. You press the ring and will be welcomed by a man with a reserved smile and a big bowler hat. The noise of the steet behind you will distance as you... More

I just visited David Carter's 40winks hotel - it wasn't a stay , it was an experience , at someone's creation , world , kingdom and peace . David has created a world of it's own that doesn't maybe open up to every kind of visitor. It opens up to a curios mind that wants to take part on this... More

Staying at " 40 Winks" allows you to step out of the humdrum of everyday life and conventional hotel spaces. The calm atmosphere and warm welcome from David is akin to unplugging oneself! A good nights rest coupled with a lovely bath in gorgeous surroundings is a wonderful tonic. Thanks to David for his ingenuity to create this gem of... More

I chose 40 Winks as I was working at an event at the wonderful Genesis Cinema. It turned out they were just a few doors from each other so that was super handy but this gem turned out to be so much more than just a convenient bed for the night. The hotel is a feast for the eyes; there... More

..they call the 40winks! It opens the doors to perception, to a different dimension and mystery. And oh all the enigma and wonders those dolls, statues and taxidermic animals, those innocent children's eyes gazing at you from those cool and distant paintings must have seen, heard and kept for themselves. All those secrets, unsearchable and occult, these walls could tell...... More
