My partner and I spent just one night in this enchanting place and whilst I wish we could've stayed longer, the magic of David's home had a huge impact on us even after this short time. We were looking for some escapism from the monotony of London life (we live in London) and I stumbled across this hidden gem. We felt as if we had been transported to another time and place. The house itself is beautiful, inspiring and enchanting, a feast for the senses. The room was bright, refreshing and very comfortable and the bathroom (bath) was pure indulgence! David was a true British gentleman, welcoming us into his home and sharing with us some of his exciting ideas to change the world. We left feeling invigorated and inspired, even though we were only 20 minutes from home! If you are passing through London or even if you live here and want to escape your reality for a bit, for a very reasonable price, I thoroughly recommend giving David a visit.
- 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
