From the moment I arrived, David was charming, kind and generous. He greeted me at the door and immediately offered me a warm cup of tea. Guest need to take their shoes off at the front door, such a respectful Japanese sensibility. I immediately felt at home.
The hotel is stunning and so wonderfully unique and quirky. If you appreciate charming conversation, an insightful guide to London, luxurious accommodations (the softest sheets and most confortable bed!), and a getaway from cookie-cutter hotels, then 40 Winks is for you. I stayed three nights and enjoyed every moment of it.
David even took the time to show me and the other guest around Brick Lane and Columbia Road on a beautiful Sunday. It was like visiting an old friend. I recommend 40 Winks completely. And, can't wait to stay again!
- 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
