“Fantastic "boutique" 5 star hotel”
Reviewed 3 November 2011

We stayed 2 nights at the "41". We were first surprised by the "intimate" feel of this hotel (part of the sister hotel "Rubbens" next door): no grandiose entrance or corridors (as for other 5 star hotels), a small lift to the all the rooms on the 5th floor and the executive lounge operating as the "hub" for the hotel (including reception desk).
We quickly came to appreciate this hotel, especially the staff who were always very attentive and try their hardest to make you feel as special guests. The lounge has a gentlemen's club and homely feel and was great for tea and breakfast. Our room was of good size and well appointed with a very comfortable bed and good size bathroom. Although perfectly adequate, do not expect the latest entertainment systems with super large TV and sound surround...

What makes this hotel special is the impecable service, attention to detail (such as rose petals and candles in the evening) and perfect location (next to Buckingham Palace).

This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff are incredible. The service is beyond first class - it is world class! In our opinion the service is as good as it gets! The hotel has the best attention to detail in everything that it does. Congratulations Hotel 41. We are already looking forward to coming back again in the near future!

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Hotel 41 last week. I had booked a one night stay as a surprise for our wedding anniversary. The hotel is on the top floor of Rubens Hotel which is from the same hotel group. Upon arrival we were taken up to the Hotel via lift and when you enter the executive lounge you immediatly realise what an exclusive place you are in. With only 28 rooms the stay feels very personal and unlike some hotels the staff seem to be able to dedicate more time to each guest. We stayed in a deluxe king size room which was amazing. We were given a lovely platter of fruit and all our favourite magazines were there for us to read. We went to see the show Wicked which is just a short walk away and upon our return there was a lovely white chocolate cheesecake in our room with a message from the manager wishing us a happy anniversary. We had a nice drink in the lounge and had a lovely chat with the manager who is very personable guy. When we returned to our room the lights had been lowered the bed turned down and an open fire was on which really added to the romance of the occasion.

I would happily go back for another stay at Hotel 41 as the attention to detail is amazing and would recommend to anyone looking for 5 star exclusivity to consider a stay here instead of some of the other bigger 5 star hotels nearby.

My wife and I stayed here in October 2011. This is not a big, glitzy Ritz-style hotel - it is a smaller, well appointed boutique hotel. Hotel 41's success is simple - they absolutely nail it when it comes to service! The hotel is very clean, and the rooms are great. Our bed was very comfortable and the main bathroom was quite large. However, the best feature of the hotel is the guest lounge and the associated staff. The lounge is the center of the hotel with a fire-place, big comfortable chairs, and 24/7 hour food/drink. Think 5-star club level but more homey and with more personalized service. The staff is personable, helpful, and goes out of its way to ensure your comfort. We would often end up here after a day of sightseeing or a night of dining. We always found a staff member who remembered our names, favorite drink, etc. In particular I would want to give cudos to Nuh of the night staff. This gentleman was relentlessly pleasant, always had a smile on his face, and took a genuine interest in our comfort. On our last night at the Hotel Nuh took the initiative to reserve our favorite table for us in the Lounge. This is just one example of countless "above and beyond" moments by the staff. I can honestly say that during our 4 night stay, we did not have 1 instance of even mediocre service in the lounge. The location of the hotel is outstanding. You are right across from Buckingham Palace and all the parks. The sights are all within walking distance. If you haven't been to London before, Chelsea is a short walk - and a fine area to shop, dine, and pub. Overall, I could not have been more pleased with our stay, and we will certainly stay here again when we return to London.

Our stay at 41 was one of the most memorable vacations ever! The hotel location, dining and atmosphere is an experience that we will never forget. The 41 staff is so wonderful and delightful...Antoinette and Magdalena made our stay at 41 the best. Their professionalism and hospitality are amazing! We are hoping that we can return to London and the Hotel 41 someday.

41 Hotel is entirely delightful; well-appointed rooms, excellent dining room and snack bar, and a 2:1 staff-to-guest ratio. This is my first choice when visiting London.

Stayed here for the second time early in October. Love the location and the exceptional service. The rooms are somewhat small - this time we stayed in a regular room and preferred it to the suite we stayed at last time.(The suite had a small room down with a steep staircase to the bed/bath upstairs).
Some great restaurants within walking distance (Quilon,Petrus).
Usually visit London at least once a year and this is where we will stay!
