“Perfectly Classic British”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Unfortunately we were only able to stay at this hotel one night and my husband and I both wished we were able to stay longer. I really love small personal boutique hotels and 41 is just that - personal in every way. First the hotel is in a great location - directly across the street from Buckingham Palace. Upon arrival we were greeted with a lovely glass of champagne - what's better than that!!! Our room was perfect - black and white decor with British prints on the wall, comfortable king size bed with soft linen, well appointed bathroom, plenty of storage space if you like to unpack - even with drawers in the bathroom, sofa and chair in the room, and the best - a fireplace!!!! Our room was down the hall from the lounge - decorated like a beautiful sitting room. Breakfast was served in the lounge with a wonderful buffet and the option for hot items. The buffet included bread items, yogurt, fruit, cereals, cold fish, meat and cheese. As if all this was not enough, the hotel lounge offers all day snacks and cold waters at no cost. If you stay at 41 don't miss the chocolates in the green wrapper - delicious. I can't wait to return to 41!!

We spent three nights at Hotel 41 starting off the European portion of our honeymoon. Upon check-in, we decided to upgrade from an executive suite to their Conservatory suite, to get the maximum 41 experience. Although very pricy, the suite was amazing. We had a stay-three-pay-two package that offered a full English breakfast with all the trimmings.

Service at 41 was second to none! Lauren and her staff did, as other reviewers have stated, "treated us like royalty".

We tried the optional Leopard bar champagne experience that was an amazing mix of food and champagne in a very romantic atmosphere with highly personalized service. Highly recommended!

One night after dinner, returning to our room with "relies", we saw that we were "romantically rosed". WOW! We returned to find candles and roses throughout the two floor suite. Moving upstairs, we saw more candles, roses all over the bed, a bottle of chilled Laurent-Perrier champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Even more surprises awaited in the bathroom, a hot bubble bath prepared, candles and roses everywhere. We couldn't wait for our "relies" to leave so we could enjoy the experience (if you know what I mean).

As the hotel does not have a fitness centre, we were welcomed at LA fitness, a short walk from the hotel.

After leaving 41, we spent three nights at the Dorchester, although historical, could not compare with Hotel 41.

Overall, a wonderful London experience! Want to return on an anniversary when we visit Britain again and want to stay in city centre London.

My wife and I recently spent five nights at Hotel 41 as part of an anniversary celebration. We were excited to go because of the excellent reviews we read on TA. I have to say this hotel provided an experience beyond what we could have conjured.

What makes this hotel distinct is the level of service provided to the guests. I cannot imagine you will experience anything better. From check-in, with a glass of champagne of your choice, to check-out we were treated in royal fashion. Any problem or request was undertaken in a flash, often by more than one of the mangers. Service in the Lounge was exemplary. Let me give special thanks to managers Stefan and Monika for making our stay special.

We stayed in an Executive King room. Although it was not large there were many appointments and conveniences. The room was very quiet even though the Victoria Station construction is underway just across the street.

Any accolades for the hotel and its staff are well earned. We will return on our next trip to London. In fact, it may be worth a trip just to stay here again!

Staff is working 24/7 to make your stay as pleasant as possible. 2 Nights in this hotel makes you want to come back for more. The staff thinks in solutions not in unanswered questions. As I said before this is a gem in London. We will be back.

Lovely experience from beginning to end. My daughter and I stayed at Hotel 41 only one night, sadly, but it was an exquisite end to two weeks in England and France. I absolutely cannot wait to bring my husband back to this divine hotel. Elegant, comfortable, well-appointed boutique hotel, and the staff could not be any more attentive and accomodating. I have stayed in $10K per night rooms in Las Vegas hotels, and I have never experienced service and quality equal to Hotel 41. This hotel makes the horrible 10 hour flight from the USA (even with rude flight attendants) worthwhile. I'm plotting to get back to London at Christmas now.

Room Tip: We were in room 1114, and while there was no real view, it was quiet, and the bed was divine with be...

Congratulations, Team 41 on your well-deserved Catey Award for Hotel of the Year. I read in the news that " The Cateys" are the hotel industry's version of The Oscars, so this is confirmation of your position at the very pinnacle of the business. As regular monthly guests we always look forward to our visits and in a fortnight (our next one) we will be looking out for the Catey statue itself which we hope is on display in the Executive Lounge. But most of all, we will look forward to congratulating the team in person. Very well done, all of you. See you soon. Celia

My husband & I are eagerly awaiting our fourth stay at 41. We adore this elegant, comfortable & welcoming hotel. Each time we arrive back after an outing it feels as if we've arrived home. All the staff are very attentive & showed great concern when my husband was unwell. They even welcomed visits & breakfasts dates with our London daughter. No better place to stay.
