Hotel 41
Ranked #1 of 1,075 Hotels in London
Reviewed 4 January 2012

Family wanted to stay in London over New Years. We booked 4 days at Hotel 41 - 2 rooms, so we had a connecting room for the kids. We really didnt know much about the hotel other than the great write-ups from Trip Advisor. The write-ups don't do justice to the Hotel. It was nothing short of amazing. The staff beats any high end hotel chain (think Four Seasons) with their service and personality. They knew the kids by name and helped with any request (dinner reservations, tickets to plays, etc). Would highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting London.

We have just spent the week prior to Christmas at this terrific hotel; just over 4 years since we first stayed here. We were very pleased to find that the exceptional standards we found last time have been maintained. We took an Executive KIng Room which was an excellent size, particularly for London. There is not a lot of point in covering off the points that set this hotel apart from other luxury hotels; they are covered off adequately by many other recent trip advisor reviews.... except to reiterate that the staff are what make the difference, they are simply the best we have found in any hotel anywhere. We thoroughly recommend "41" to anybody wanting a truely exceptional hotel experience without the "machine" like feel that you can get from larger establishments.

Alchemy's a rare commodity ... but '41' has it.
Hard to define how/why a boutique hotel is quite so outstanding ; exceptional staff + understated luxury + outstanding attention to detail and quality + beautiful difference + elegant charm + royal location...all there plus ..honestly...a tiny bit of magic*

We spent a perfect 3 night stay there in December. The chaos of our journey melted within seconds of arriving : the ultimate in discrete effiiciency (Frederick...manager), had conjured a perfect split-level suite, open-fire, candle light, relaxing drinks. Everything happened magically, effortlessly...doors opened, ice-bucket waiting,restaurant tables arranged.

Adam (utter gem) invisibly made sure relaxation happened :stress doesn't exsist there, privacy respected, romance flourishes ...

Supper was perfect...Do 'raid the pantry' in the exec' lounge. The setting is superb ... Let Michael suggest another perfect (complimentary) smoked salmon...or roast ham..or exquisite pastry.

We left changed...happy, feeling bathed in magic and wishing that every 5 star hotel could be half as good as '41'. Go ...before alchemy changes its formula.

Room Tip: Split level junior suite

My wife and I decided to spend our Christmas in London. The reviews for "41" were spot on. We signed up for the Christmas package which also included Christmas stockings and afternoon tea, which were both exceptional. The room was classically British with a modern twist (not at all stuffy). I liked the wireless Internet, Bose player for my iPhone, and the surround sound system in the room. The fireplace added a cozy, romantic feel that was so welcoming after a day of sightseeing or a night at the theater. The staff was attentive, polite, and quickly knew our names and personal needs. The breakfast was superb and filling. Can't wait to go back! Who's going to turn down my bed tonight?!

i cannot recommend this hotel enough! the rooms are small but very elegant, they were spotless and full of little luxury items to make sure your stay is nothing but perfect.
i requested a "romantic turn down" as it was my wife's birthday and i was not dissapointed, very nice touch's were made to our room and i can 100% recommend this to all you fella's out there!

my last comment will be the staff, they were amazing! extremely friendly without being over the top and they actually made our stay and will definitely be the reason that we stay again in the future, they even gave us a bath robe for our 1 year old son who wasn't even with us!

just nice personal touch's that made our stay absolutely perfect!

so a huge thank you to the staff of hotel 41.
