A challenge it was to arrange our trip to London around the availabilities in 40winks. And worth every effort.
We felt enchanted by the breathtaking mixture of colors, textures and extraordinary decorations. Every room has its own atmosphere and feeling. I personally loved the lying in the bathtub surrounded by birds on golden wallpaper, I enjoyed the opium den wallowing in pleasure about its promising temptations.
Davids warm hospitality the short but inspiring and mind opening conversations revealed his charming character of what for me is an eccentric English gentlemen.
This magical place felt like a fairytale wonderland. Especially for my 11-year old Harry-Potter-fan daughter. In his beautiful, exquisite home David owns a wand. What more can you say?
- 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
