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.

As soon as David opened the door of 40 Winks, I knew we were in for an aesthetic treat. You are at once absorbed into a fantastical and glamorous home. We had a comfortable night, lovely linen and pillows. The bathroom is divine. David was very welcoming and guided us on where to explore and eat. This part of London... More

I've stayed here three times and it is now always where I stay when visiting London. It's difficult to put in words what makes the place special. As other people have mentioned, the interior design is aesthetically spectacular and stays with you. Also, David is a kind and welcoming host as well as a good conversationalist.

Stayed three nights in the smaller upstairs room, facing the backyard. Quiet and comfortable. David was very hospitable and helpful both while I was making the reservations months in advance and while I was there in his home. It was a pleasure chatting with him & sharing stories. The décor of this townhouse is really unique - as you can... More

Thanks for the kind review!!! We do have lots of super cool places to eat close by... artisan bakers, Foxcroft & Ginger, is just one minutes walk away and Soho House have a branch of Dirty Burger three minutes walk away. Venture a little further, and you have a huge selection of amazing restaurants, cafes and bars in Spitalfields and... More

It has now been 8 months since we were opened the door by Mr Carter to his very own universe, but it has left us strong memories, such is the evocative power of his interior design. I still remember bathtime in particular, for the rest much has already been said in the reviews... my main point here is how long... More

Hello travelers and explorers.... I recently had the good fortune to stay two nights at a very unique place: 40 Winks, a boutique hotel in the East part of London. Why is unique?

The second time at 40wink after about a year it was even better than the first time. I had a chance to attend a very special event, a glamorous pyjama party dedicated to stories of the night with a very talented actress who involved all visitors in various stories of love, death, horror and comedy.

My partner and I spent just one night in this enchanting place and whilst I wish we could've stayed longer, the magic of David's home had a huge impact on us even after this short time. We were looking for some escapism from the monotony of London life (we live in London) and I stumbled across this hidden gem. We... More
