Situated just a few minutes from Stepney Green and Whitechapel Tubes, this 'micro' boutique hotel is a gem of a bolthole. David's home is warm, calm and inviting, his lovely manner and great chat is as much of a feature of the place as the stunning interior design and it's located next door to a cool cinema and numerous great...

We Londoners are demanding. We want to be entertained, but we want the location, the venue and the act all to be secret. Now, we just want to stay in; but just not at our own house and still be entertained. David Carter, the owner of East London’s boutique hotel – 40 Winks, is the perfect character to host an... More

There is much to discover within the delightful interiors of 40Winks ~ from the entrance, throughout the house and in the magical garden, everywhere ~ is a pleasure to be. David Carter is kind, interesting and most helpful, an attentive host and wonderful conversationalist. I very much enjoyed a six night stay in David's beautiful home and always felt pleasure...

I’ve just come back from a delectable staycation at 40 Winks, London. This elegant and eccentric boutique B&B is the home and work of David Carter, Interior Designer. What took me by complete surprise was that in no way did I want to leave and use 40 Winks as just “the place to stay overnight”. I wanted to melt into... More

What a wonderful little hotel! 40 Winks is ideal for those who want to escape mainstream and experience a stay beyond the ordinary. David Carter is a perfect host, providing guests with a unique and beautiful home as well as lots of information on things worth discovering, be it markets, exhibitions, cafes, restaurants etc. I will definitely return.

This was a wonderfully unique experience; one which I will never forget. Absolute hospitality, stunning interiors and a feast for the eyes. I stayed in the single room and enjoyed the delight of the top floor bathroom. Feeling like Cleopatra, I bathed surrounded by bronze leaf Chinese wallpaper as water tumbled out of the lion’s mouth into the cast iron... More

Even if I’m writing my review quite some time after I stayed at David Carter’s magical place ‘’40winks’’ it doesn’t mean that the memories of my stay have faded. In fact the opposite… I stayed for 3 nights during August and as I was traveling alone I was looking for a different place to stay. I had such a good... More

David Carter allows a spectacular dive into London city life, inviting you into his most unique house for an always too short stay. His hospitality is exceptional! Do not expect typical hotel. His recommendations for eating and going out are great.
