Hotel 41
Ranked #1 of 1,077 Hotels in London
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Wow. Our stay at Hotel 41 came at the end of a trip where we had already experienced some excellent accommodations so our bar was set pretty high. Let's just say that Hotel 41 exceeded our expectations in so many ways. From the moment that we arrived we were made to feel special. Actually the great service started even before we arrived as I had been in contact with their concierge who were very helpful in making recommendations and arranging airport transport via email.

This hotel actually occupies the top floor of the building which also holds the Rubens Hotel. It has a separate entrance that is locked and manned making it feel very exclusive.

We had a interior facing room so no view but that may have been a blessing because the streets sound as though they may be a bit noisy. If I had to find one fault, it's that the room and particularly the bathroom were on the small side by North American standards but probably average for UK. Having said that, it was decorated very tastefully and you could see the quality in everything, down to every detail. It was also laid out very nicely with every accessory and amenity you could want while travelling. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the shower head installed on the ceiling above the tub made it hard to step away from it.

In their lounge there are refreshments and snacks available all day long including an honour bar. The same lounge is used for their excellent continental breakfast buffet and afternoon tea. A hot breakfast can be ordered as well. Since the clientele is limited in this small boutique hotel, they seem to know who everyone is without having to ask you for your room#. A small detail but it made us feel very welcome and special.

Their concierge desk was fantastic for help and recommendations. The same can be said with the staff manning the entrance who are always there to provide you with an umbrella if they think you're not prepared for the weather at hand. All staff seemed to be prepared to make your experience the best one possible.

The location of the hotel is also very convenient. It's closest to the Victoria station that connects very easily to every major line. It's a stone's throw away from Buckingham Palace and some beautiful neighbourhoods that are nice for a stroll (if it's not raining). It's also within walking distance to many attractions if you don't mind 20-30min of fresh air exercise, the biggest obstacle being the rain of course.

Normally when we travel I like to try out different accommodations but I'm already thinking about coming back here the next time we're in London ...

Room Tip: We had a room without a view but it was incredibly quiet. The street facing rooms may be noisy based...

On company business we stayed one night at Hotel 41. From the moment you walk in you are looked after by amazing staff.
We were made to feel extremely welcome, had a wonderful room, the extras in the room were most appreciated, the bathroom was luxurious and the bed extremely comfortable.
Although we did not make use of the 24 hour buffet it look wonderful as did the honesty bar.
The cooked breakfast in the morning was delicious.
We left wishing we could stay longer and would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends.

Hotel 41 is actually the fifth floor of the Rubens Hotel building, accessed by a separate entrance. It is characterized by an exceptional level of service and attention to detail from the staff. My company was conducting business in London and the board room at 41 was ideal. Throughout my three days there I was treated like a special guest and in a genuinely friendly manner. My room was especially well-equipped - the bathroom was large and the king-sized bed very comfortable - and little touches like a fruit hamper were much appreciated. Everything about the place is five-star and I found no fault. As a Yorkshireman I never imagined I could consider $600 a night for a hotel to be good value, but for this quality of experience I do think so and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.

We stayed at Hotel 41 last Tuesday night to be near to Victoria Station. It literally took my breath away. Secreted on 5th floor (formally the ballroom) of the Rubens hotel, 41 is so special and true luxury. Yes you do pay for it, however you certainly get the service and quality you would expect - and some. The staff are so friendly, helpful and efficient and the decor throughout is amazing. Definitely will be saving up to go back again. Fabulous place for couples to celebrate a special occasion.

Room Tip: There are some roadworks going on at present and so would probably ask for a room at the side farthe...

We had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful boutique hotel for our final night in London during the Olympics. We had rented a flat for the previous 2 weeks and treated ourselves on our last night at Hotel 41 to celebrate our anniversary. The hotel was an oasis in a central and hectic part of London. The room was spacious and beautiful, but what really stood out were the staff and the level of service. They truly provided a memorable ending to a great experience in London. Next time, we plan on staying for more than one night!

My son and I spent a lovely week at Hotel 41 in July. We felt that Hotel 41 was our home and oasis during our visit to London. The staff's attention to detail and to the needs of each guest are beyond excellent. I am a seasoned traveler and can say that I have never experienced the level of personal attention and care that we received at Hotel 41. The staff is simply the best. The rooms are well appointed and spacious by London standards. This hotel is truly a gem and from now on the only place I will stay in London. I stongly recommend Hotel 41.

We LOVED Hotel 41! It's very boutique, right on Buckingham Palace Rd. It feels like there are only 5 rooms even though there are 30. The attention to detail of the staff was amazing! We had rose petals strewn on the bed and around the bath, candles lit and a fire! The gorgeous lounge with free delicious nibbles and drinks is divine. The continental breakfast offering was beyond expectations - in fact that just sums up the whole place. Incredible. And I stay in a LOT of 5 star places.... I wish we could have stayed longer - and eaten some of the food that is written about in the lovely recipe book. Charming, completely customer focused personal care and service - nothing is too much trouble. Well worth it.

We just can't fault it and are saving to come back next time!
