“Possibly the best hotel in England...”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

My wonderful new wife and I stayed at Hotel 41 very recently to have a celebratory weekend in London. Having stayed at 41 a number of times previously, the bench had been set in terms of standards/service etc. and it's the true mark of a great hotel that can consistently deliver on this:
Hotel 41 does this, without exception.
The staff were exceptional (for example, my wife was unfortunately ill on the Friday night, meaning we had to cancel our dinner reservations at a 'quite hard to book' restaurant. We ended up staying another night at 41 as it really is that good, and the wonderful resident manager Lauren managed to get us a reservation at the same restaurant for Saturday night....no mean feat by any stretch!)
There's an unwritten motto at 41 which is unfortunately becoming all too rare in the increasing homogenised luxury hotel market (although it is actually summed up perfectly on the room telephones: 'whatever, whenever'). The lost art of friendliness, personal service and willing to go way above and beyond to ensure your stay there is one of the best hotel experiences you've ever had is thankfully alive and kicking at Hotel 41 - Lauren and Remus demonstrating this perfectly.
A perfect location, beautifully appointed rooms and the best hotel service i've experienced in the UK keeps Hotel 41 at the top of the TripAdvisor pile and it's clear that you don't get there without good reason!
Complimentary champagne, wonderful canapes, a lovely selection of food in the complimentary pantry...you've probably read all about these in previous reviews so I won't go on (they're all true by the way).
Thank you to the staff who made our stay so wonderful and for those of you who are 'umming and aahhing' over whether to stay here or not....DO IT. You will not be disappointed. The only danger is you'll want to come back here sooner than you can.

Hotel 41...we salute you.

We just spent a week in London, staying at the Hotel 41. From the first contact at arrival to the amenities in our suite and executive lounge, everything was top notch. The very personal service from all of the staff made us feel truly welcome. We were always greeted by our name. We loved relaxing in the executive lounge with our cappuccinos in the morning and pink champagne in the evening.The location enabled us to walk to many attractions and restaurants, which were well recommended by the staff. It was always nice to come back to our room after dinner to find our bed turned down, the fireplace lit, the sterio quietly playing classical music, candles lit in the bathroom ... it was all of the little touches that made our experience so great! We look forward to going back!

What an amazing hotel. As the other reviews state, the service is unbeatable. My husband and I stayed here for three nights and weren't ready to leave when we did.

Check In - Complimentary champagne with arrival along with a great overview of the hotel and amenities. The staff also checks in to see if they can help with any travel planning while you are there. My husband plans everything so we didn't need much help but they helped with transportation and gave a thumbs up to his choices.

Room - We stayed in a junior suite that comprised of two levels. The lower level was small but comfortable and had a lovely fireplace. The upstairs had a desk, closet, bedroom and bath. It wasn't large but was very comfortable. Attention to detail has been paid to the rooms. Anything you may need is already there. The black and white theme is modern yet still warm. The bathroom was large and modern.

Service/Food - The breakfast at the hotel is quite nice. Each evening we had drinks in the lounge and enjoyed both the service and the complimentary snacks. What really makes this hotel stand out is the service. The entire team is focused on ensuring you are enjoying your stay. They know your name, check in with you and always have a smile on their face. We were there on my birthday and the staff decorated the room with rose petals and left a cake as well.

I can't wait to go back!

From first contact, through booking, to arrival, attention to detail was exceptional, even to describing where to pull up the car, "we'll unload sir and park the car for you, congestion charge paid sir?" (I had done something!). Arrived slightly early, "please take a seat sir, madam - champagne?" Very pleasant!

We were courteously shown to our room, the door opened, my wife immediately burst into tears for I had requested the "Romantically" package, (see it to believe it.)

A quick change prior to the concierge booked car arriving exact to time, concert and return to a beautifully appointed Lounge offering complimentary self service buffet with a "honesty tab" for drinks plus staff on hand offering assistance.

We've all stayed in Hotels where the room phone has 101 extension numbers and you eventually find reception or room service, well at 41 next to one button it reads "whatever whenever" how easy is that.

Well off for breakfast, what shall I have today?

Finally a big thank you to all the excellent friendly and polite staff, No! Staff is not the right word - Hotel Team, yes a big thank you to all the Hotel Team - excellent.

Room Tip: We stayed in an Exec Double an never heard a soul, Romantically package (as they list it) well worth...

Wow, what a wonderful hotel. Great location, fabulous design and flawless execution.

Location - turn right out of the front door and you are at the gates of Buckingham Palace within 3 minutes. Turn left, across 2 blocks into Victoria St and you have an 8 minute walk to Westminster.

Design - enter the narrow foyer, head for the lift and ascend to Level 5. The hotel takes up the entire top floor with the suites centred around the wonderfully warm and welcoming guest lounge. The top floor location allows for natural light to make its way into the lounge and guest suites via skylights. The black and white decor, against a backdrop of rich, red timbers and antique furnishings, works wonderfully - classy without being over the top.

Execution - 41's stated philosophy is "no request too big, no detail to small" and this mindset permeated our every experience. The service if attentive, timely and flawless without being intrusive. Every day sees another surprise and delight - a birthday celebration sees our suite littered with rose petals, the next night a bottle of sleep fragrance is on the bed. The beds are huge, supremely comfortable and the very long list of pillow options on the "menu" makes it impossible not to find your own definition of comfort.

We will be back!

This without a doubt is the best City Hotel Ive ever stayed in. It was just perfect nothing was too much trouble. The lounge / bar area is just like being at home just help yourself too food and a drink in the evening and just relax. And to top it all the location is perfect.

Since my first review of the 41 in July 2010, I've had the pleasure of staying at the 41 two more times. I didn't think it was possible to improve on such a great hotel, but I found this stay to be even better than the last two.

The staff were, as always, quite attentive and delivered the highest quality service. What changed this time was the fare in the "pantry"; it was more much more varied. There was a wider selection of cheeses, meats, breads, fruit, ice cream, and other interesting nibbles—all as part of the 41's "plunder the pantry" feature where guests can help themselves to a hearty snack each evening at no additional charge.

For additional details, see my review from July, 2010.

Room Tip: Book an Executive King.
