“Magnificent Atmosphere & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This is a small hotel that occupies the 5th floor of an older building just a block away from
Buckingham Palace. From the minute you check in, you realize that you are in for a superlative customer service experience. The staff - meticulously dressed in formal wear - attends to your every request. Although the rooms have been very nicely remodeled and have terrific atmosphere, they are a bit unique and not appropriate for the traveler that wants a big cookie cutter room, but they are charming and really fun. Ours was a suite on two floors, with a small sitting room in the ground floor with a fireplace, and a nice sized bedroom on the top floor. The bathroom was large, complete with a tub that had it's own television. The best part of the place is the guest lounge where they serve breakfast in the morning, and tea and cocktails the rest of the day. It is a beautiful room with a fireplace, and big comfy chairs. The staff was always eager to help and very professional. The only downside....there is construction going on across the street (looks like it will be going on for months) - so there is some construction noise. But otherwise it is a perfect little place.

The service was impeccable, the staff were delightful, the food wonderful. I have never been to a hotel where you are actually made to feel so welcome and I've been to many many hotels around the world. If I have anything negative to say is that the bedroom was quite small but it was beautifully presented

The team at the hotel should be commended for their customer service, every little detail is catered and cared for.

Check in smooth with complimentary champagne and relaxed too, valet parking a bonus!

We just returned from a European trip that concluded with three nights at "41", what a great way to end a great vacation. The hotel is conveniently located a block from Victoria Station and the only thing nicer than the surroundings is the staff. We were checked in by Monika and treated like family. She along with the rest of the staff are great representatives of the property and made us (excuse the pun) "feel like royalty". I am looking forward to a return trip to London and I would not consider any other hotel.

Room Tip: They are all great.

After traveling & experiencing many outstanding hotels during our 15+ years of world travel we pretty much have seen it all when it comes to 5 Star service however this hotel manages to squeeze out even more in the department of personalized service. The Concierge team has a knack of anticipating your next move and is always at your service 24/7, ready to spring into action whether it be for a restaurant reservation, Buckingham Palace Tours or general directions. No request appears to be a challenge for this group of go-getters.

Housekeeping gets 5 gold stars in my book. Our room was made up each day as expected but the entire room received a thorough sprucing up each day. These are the little things that we took notice of. The rooms are chock full of comfy-ness. Bottled water at each nightstand, slippers, ample bathroom toiletries which included an entire assortment of any toiletry you may have left behind along with big, fluffy hot towels & comfy robes. Laundry/dry cleaning, shoe shining, help with packing ... the list of services offered goes on and on. Each evening we found fresh ice and a lovely plate of olives, lime & wedges for drinks.

The Executive Lounge is superb and a wonderful little oasis to return to after a long day of sightseeing to enjoy a cocktail and wonderful canapés. Everyone at Hotel 41 prides themselves on providing impeccable service with a genuine attitude.

Breakfast in the Executive Lounge was a great start to a long day of walking & sightseeing. Coffee each morning was served with style & class in lovey silver decanters. The breakfast menu has something for everyone or one could choose from the lovely selection of bagels, pastries, croissants and cold cereals and yogurts.

Location of Hotel 41 is a short walk to Victoria Station, which we found so convenient in that we used the Tube almost every day to get around the city. It was also a nice walk to the river area, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace is right around the corner.

We loved our week's stay at Hotel 41 and would not hesitate to return.

Thank you Monika for pulling out of your hat a last minute request for Buckingham Palace State Room Tour Tickets & restaurant reservations; Thank you Shameelah for arranging London Eye tickets and always asking about our day; Thank you Guy for wonderful Gin & Tonics and turning us on to Bloom Gin which I was able to find here in The States!! Thank you David for helping me with my iPad Wi-Fi; Thank You Sarah for my morning, personally delivered Cappuccinos; Thank you Flo for making us feel like royalty at breakfast each morning; Thank you Tyrone & Piero for sending us off each day and greeting us each evening upon our return. If I left anyone out it was only because I didn't catch all the names. You all work so hard and your efforts are greatly appreciated. Thank you for making our first trips to London a memorable one!

Really friendly service, comfortable room and good location. Lots of nice little touches. I really enjoyed the check-in in the lounge. It's nice to have a comfy seat while checking in after a long flight. The turn-down service was fantastic. Would love to return!
