Well well well, What can I say about 10 Winks. My girl friend and I stayed at 40Winks for her birthday. 40 Winks is very well-known in the fashion industry and many others, so we were very lucky to be able to find a vacancy at David's place the night of her birthday. The stay made her birthday more special than anything since her passion is for fashion and arts. 40 Winks is decorated with very unique art pieces and it is almost like jumped into Alice in wonderland.
The room we stayed at was for double room which located on the third floor. It was just marvellous and fantabulous place to be. I'd defiantly will be back to stay at 40 winks for another special night.
Also chatting with David was very inspirational and would love to have longer conversation with him one day over some tea or glass of wine.
I think non of words can be enough to describe 40 Winks.
We just loved every moments of stay since we stepped in the David's world.

Huge thank you for the special stay David.

We were lucky, to make a reservation at 40 Winks and had a realy great weekend in London. David Carter created a very unique and lovely place. He is a very friendly host, who cares about his guests. He recommended us beautiful markets, restaurants and cafes. 40 Winks was the perfect place to be close to the hip East end and the famous London sights. If you prefer a unique accomodation to a boring standard hotel, 40 Winks is the choice. Thanks a lot, Rolf & Nadine

Staying at 40 Winks is an enormous treat!

First of all, I felt very fortunate that there was an opening; I have tried to make a reservation on more than one occasion.

The wait was so worth it. Staying at 40 Winks was a magical experience that mesmerized me from when I first rang the doorbell of this beautiful Queen Anne townhouse until I left it 48 hours later.

As stated by many reviewers before, the home of talented and renowned interior designer David Carter is absolutely stunning and unique. The house radiates warmth and inspiration. It also has a home away from home feeling which makes you feel relaxed and safe.

David Carter is a perfect host and gentleman; attentive, charming and friendly. I truly enjoyed our good conversations over a cup of coffee or tea in the downstairs kitchen.

I stayed in the lovely single room which is facing the garden. It was very comfortable and spotlessly clean.

Just a few words to say that 40 Winks is not for everyone. You can't stay anonymous, you have to take off your shoes at the door, you can’t lock your bedroom door, you need to share a bathroom, there is no shower and the light is rather dim.

40 Winks is worlds apart and I can’t wait to return!

40 Winks is an experience first and then an outstanding boutique hotel. David Carter, an old style gentleman and a visionary interior designer, will lead you through his realm in a dreamlike atmosphere. Everything at 40 Winks is inspired and obeys to a vision, besides rooms are superbly furnished, cosy and clean. It really feels your home away from home. A little gem conveniently located that will introduce you to vibrant East London!
