As a young intern travelling alone in London, I have stayed in a lot of different places and had a variety of different experiences; this has been by far the most wonderful, breathtaking place I have ever stayed, in London or anywhere else for that matter.
It was an absolute pleasure staying at 40winks. David Carter is a lovely, entertaining and conscientious host, and his home is a magnificent dream world, beautifully decorated with all kinds of quirky pieces and instantly exuding a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
It really is a hidden treasure, and if you want something unique, opulent and luxurious then this is the place, but I warn you now you will never want to leave; personally I cannot wait to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
