“Service above and beyond”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel 41. The service was exceptional, and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Nicole in particular was very helpful with recommendations and advise, and was even able to locate tickets to a sold out show. I will recommend this hotel to all of my family and friends.

I chose this hotel after reading many reviews on TripAdvisor and they were spot on! We stayed 2 nights here after a cruise before flying home and it was the perfect choice. Right at check in we were greeted and treated to a beverage of our choice and seated at the desk to receive our room. When we asked about a restaurant within walking distance they pointed us to the one right next door and the Hotel Manager even called ahead to treat us to a glass of champagne before dinner!

Location was ideal for us, it's directly across the street and one block down to the entrance of Buckingham Palace which we were able to tour due to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Our room was beautiful, we couldn't have been more pleased. We will definitely return!

My family (husband and three children) stayed in one of the suites in eary February. The staff were wonderful, very attentive - couldn't do enough for us . The suite was a bit cramped with the five of us but still fabulous, with a huge, extremely comfy, king size bed and 2 sofa beds which weren't so comfortable.The location was perfect, food was fabulous and the kids enjoyed 'raiding the pantry' most nights. A big thank you to Lauren and her team who made our London experience extremely enjoyable.

COnveniently located close to Victoria Station, perfect if you flew in at Gatewick and if you enjoy some early morning jogging around St.James and Buckingham Palace. Beautiful rooms and delicious breakfast in a stilish environment. Excellent staff. Quality has its price, but it is good value for your money.

my husband and i stayed here almost 2 years ago. we get regular red carnation e mail and thought let's stay again this weekend. (we are from los angeles, live in paris and travel to england several times a year for various events). this time, we will be attending a concert at the royal opera house and this hotel is close enough, but far enough from the craziness of covent garden to be convenient. but now that the 41 is ranked 1 on trip advisor, it is way too popular for us to book/afford! (we will let you know where we end up staying this weekend.... i'm certain it will end up at the top of the list, again...) the 41 reputation is well deserved. we have stayed at many 5 star hotels in london but we really liked this exceptional small hotel and wanted to return...

Had stayed at Rubens at the Palace many years ago but wanted something a little more special for the last 4 days of our honeymoon on our way back to the States from Africa. We were tired from travel and arrived late in the evening. We had to wait a bit in the downstairs lobby but finally made it upstairs to the Executive Lounge where we were warmly welcomed and treated to champagne as we checked in. We were given a full tour of our room which ended up being quite small and had some plumbing issues. They didn't have any other large-size rooms to move us to that evening so allowed us access to a nearby small room for use of the bathroom and then officially switched us to a larger junior-suite type room the following day for the remainder of our stay. They handed the entire move while we were out sight-seeing and everything was seamless. The rooms were clean and although the bathrooms were slightly on the small side, they were just fine for European standards.

The Executive Lounge was fantastic for breakfast, both for food and service. The servers are delightful and remember what you like from one day to the next. The on-your-honor pantry at night was a nice touch....being able to come in late for a cocktail and simply jotting down in the log what you had so they can charge you upon check-out. Very old-fashioned way of doing things and made you feel at home. My husband particularly enjoyed the small freezer which held mini-size Hagaan Daaz ice creams to enjoy any time of day.

Lauren, the manager on duty, was professional, cheerful and always willing to go above and beyond to make sure your stay wasn't just "good" but memorable and extremely special. Because they knew it was our honeymoon, they left special gifts in the room for us each night...full fruit basket, expensive chocolates, champagne, floral arrangements, etc. Lauren and her staff were great at assisting with travel arrangements, loaning us their travel books and maps and booking theater tickets with ease. Turndown service always left our room neat and tidy with replenished towels and toiletries and even had music softly playing when we returned to our room at the end of the day. There always seemed to be plenty of staff on-duty at any given time so someone was always around to anticipate your needs and then deliver.

The location, right near Buckingham Palace, was centrally located to most all of the sites we wanted to see. You also had full use of the Rubens restaurant downstairs which was convenient for a late-night bar setting if you didn't want to venture far from the hotel.

The price is high but well worth it. The accommodations were great but the staff is top-notch and made the experience all that it was!!!! They treat you like family...but more like the royal family. It's a stay you won't forget and will defintely want to do again if you can. Could not have been more pleased with our choice for the last four days of our honeymoon. Thank you Hotel 41!! Maybe you'll see us back for an anniversary one of these days...

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the Royal Mews which is fun. Also, they are very open to honoring room requests...

My new favorite Hotel in London. We used to stay at Claridge's but thought would try something different. We are so pleased that we did. Lauren was amazing and really made us feel very welcome. My only complaint would be that the room was a little on the small side. The Executive Lounge is amazing as was the breakfast. Definitely deserves its number 1 status.
