“Great trip during the holidays”
Reviewed 4 January 2012

The staff at Hotel 41 are not only extremely helpful and service-oriented. This much one would certainly expect from a five-star hotel. But the staff also exude warmth, rather than formality, and they show great skill at learning the interests of the guests.

Typically, my wife and I can be made to feel uncomfortable by high-level service. We don't want anyone to think that we believe we are any better than anyone else, and often "five-star" service creates an ambience that screams, "You're SUPPOSED to act like you're better than the have-nots!"

Not so at Hotel 41.

From the moment we walked in the door and were greeted by Roman, the staff made us feel at home. Thanks need to go out to Roman, Julian (great recommendation/reservation for lunch at Quilon!), and the great young French guy whose name I did not get.

The room, of course, is gorgeous, as is the executive lounge. But its the staff that makes the hotel special.

Great visit.

Stayed December 2011, travelled as a couple

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?!
