40 Winks is a legendary hotel based in hip and trendy East London. Despite our bijou size, we have achieved an almost mythical status since we opened our doors in 2009, somewhat cheekily describing ourselves as the world's first 'micro boutique hotel'. From the beginning, our mission was always a very simple one - to offer an antidote to the bland uniformity of most hotel chains by creating something that is deliriously seductive, memorable and enchanting. Staying here is about much more than having a comfortable bed to sleep in or a place to dump your luggage, it is an immersive experience, an invitation to lose yourself in another more fabulous, more magical world.

I had the most lovely stay at 40 Winks. I wanted it to be my home and indeed it felt incredibly comfortable and relaxed. I was greeted on arrival by Mr Carter himself who made me feel immediately welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed his company and we had the opportunity to have a

In a sea of urban uniformity, and when the social expectations of luxe has already reached a point of convergence, 40 Winks is an absolute breath of fresh air. Without reading reviews written before me, I'm certain words such as "fairytale" and "otherworldly" have been bandied

I'd heard great things about 40 Winks and it certainly didn't disappoint. The room was beautiful and it was great to meet David and put the world to rights! I wish we'd had more time to really explore the house, and I'd come back in a heartbeat.

I was searching for the perfect spot to surprise my wife for her birthday. I must say I hit the jackpot. Staying at David's house was a really nice experience. One of my favourite parts of the house was the bathroom. The standalone bath was perfect to relax after spending the

Gorgeous and edgy, still at home…it’s a magic by the host, Mr. David Carter! The location is much convenient than expected. Very easy to access from Heathrow Airport, and a subway station is a few minutes walk away. I enjoyed the edgy but daily-life atmosphere of the East side

Hello Teresa M! We stayed at 40 Winks in april. They have one single and one double room. On their informative and kind of cheeky ;-) website you find that three people are their maximum, if there is four of you, they can sadly not help. No extra beds are available. (I only write this because they have not yet answered you here on tripadvisor) I recommend you to check out Hotel 41, which also seems to have a nice ambiance plus has got some good reviews. I have not stayed there myself, but it is "on our list". Wish you all a pleasant and joyful stay in London! Best/ Huskorset
