Right after easter 2015 I visited London with my daughter for a couple of days. Especially to see the Alexander Mac Queen exhibition at the v&a and for browsing through new concept stores. But the all time ever highlight was staying at 40 Winks as David's guests. It was such a pleasureful experience we will never forget. Some kind of... More

I stayed at 40 Winks in May 2015. It is the most remarkable hotel I have stayed. The design is amazing and David and the lovely Maria were wonderful hosts. The place is not for everyone: if you want TV in your room, to wear your shoes indoors and the facilities of a standard hotel then this is not for... More

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.

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
