You are entering a different world when you walk in the door at 40 winks. I felt like Alice in Wonderland and was treated like a princess from the time I checked in to the hotel until I checked out. David Carter is a wonderful host. He has an unique style, a big knowledge of art and design and can show you places in London you'd never find on your own! He showed me a wonderful flea market with the most amazing treasures you can imagine! You will be inspired by his magical world and made my trip to London unique! He also came to visit me in the gallery where I exhibited and joined me to see a concert with one of my friends. I will never forget my first stay at 40 winks!
The only negative was that the bedroom door did not lock with a key, but it felt so safe there that it was like sleeping over at a friend's house. =)
- 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
