My husband and I are Londoners, but fancied staying overnight somewhere special in our beloved capital. Some people thought we were a bit mad wanting to go to a hotel in Stepney Green, but this is a special experience wherever you happen to come from. We didn't just want a bland boutique experience, and 40 Winks provided everything in terms of otherworldliness and exquisite detail. We really enjoyed chatting with host David about art, life and everything in between, and couldn't stop staring at all the beautiful decor, ornaments and thoughtful touches about the house. I'm not going to list what things looked or felt like - go and see for yourself! And don't arrive expecting an identikit hotel experience - it's all about letting go of ordinary life, and going with the flow. Amazing.
- 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
