The service was impeccable, the staff were delightful, the food wonderful. I have never been to a hotel where you are actually made to feel so welcome and I've been to many many hotels around the world. If I have anything negative to say is that the bedroom was quite small but it was beautifully presented

The team at the hotel should be commended for their customer service, every little detail is catered and cared for.

Check in smooth with complimentary champagne and relaxed too, valet parking a bonus!

We just returned from a European trip that concluded with three nights at "41", what a great way to end a great vacation. The hotel is conveniently located a block from Victoria Station and the only thing nicer than the surroundings is the staff. We were checked in by Monika and treated like family. She along with the rest of the staff are great representatives of the property and made us (excuse the pun) "feel like royalty". I am looking forward to a return trip to London and I would not consider any other hotel.

Room Tip: They are all great.

After traveling & experiencing many outstanding hotels during our 15+ years of world travel we pretty much have seen it all when it comes to 5 Star service however this hotel manages to squeeze out even more in the department of personalized service. The Concierge team has a knack of anticipating your next move and is always at your service 24/7, ready to spring into action whether it be for a restaurant reservation, Buckingham Palace Tours or general directions. No request appears to be a challenge for this group of go-getters.

Housekeeping gets 5 gold stars in my book. Our room was made up each day as expected but the entire room received a thorough sprucing up each day. These are the little things that we took notice of. The rooms are chock full of comfy-ness. Bottled water at each nightstand, slippers, ample bathroom toiletries which included an entire assortment of any toiletry you may have left behind along with big, fluffy hot towels & comfy robes. Laundry/dry cleaning, shoe shining, help with packing ... the list of services offered goes on and on. Each evening we found fresh ice and a lovely plate of olives, lime & wedges for drinks.

The Executive Lounge is superb and a wonderful little oasis to return to after a long day of sightseeing to enjoy a cocktail and wonderful canapés. Everyone at Hotel 41 prides themselves on providing impeccable service with a genuine attitude.

Breakfast in the Executive Lounge was a great start to a long day of walking & sightseeing. Coffee each morning was served with style & class in lovey silver decanters. The breakfast menu has something for everyone or one could choose from the lovely selection of bagels, pastries, croissants and cold cereals and yogurts.

Location of Hotel 41 is a short walk to Victoria Station, which we found so convenient in that we used the Tube almost every day to get around the city. It was also a nice walk to the river area, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace is right around the corner.

We loved our week's stay at Hotel 41 and would not hesitate to return.

Thank you Monika for pulling out of your hat a last minute request for Buckingham Palace State Room Tour Tickets & restaurant reservations; Thank you Shameelah for arranging London Eye tickets and always asking about our day; Thank you Guy for wonderful Gin & Tonics and turning us on to Bloom Gin which I was able to find here in The States!! Thank you David for helping me with my iPad Wi-Fi; Thank You Sarah for my morning, personally delivered Cappuccinos; Thank you Flo for making us feel like royalty at breakfast each morning; Thank you Tyrone & Piero for sending us off each day and greeting us each evening upon our return. If I left anyone out it was only because I didn't catch all the names. You all work so hard and your efforts are greatly appreciated. Thank you for making our first trips to London a memorable one!

Really friendly service, comfortable room and good location. Lots of nice little touches. I really enjoyed the check-in in the lounge. It's nice to have a comfy seat while checking in after a long flight. The turn-down service was fantastic. Would love to return!

Hotel 41
This truly is a special hotel in London and with a great location on Buckingham Palace Road, right opposite the entrance for the Royal Mews – a few minutes’ walk to Victoria Station, just down the road to Buckingham Palace and about seven minutes’ walk to Green Park tube (through the park) it’s a great location for the area. Having been to London many times and stayed in numerous hotels (The Royal Gardens at Kensington and The Sofitel in St James on 3 occasions Hotel 41 is my new favourite. Certainly not inexpensive (even without converting to the Australian Dollar) but where else do you get seated at check in and offered complimentary ‘Verve’Champagne and have a complimentary open pantry 24 hours a day.
The Executive lounge was our home away from home for our four nights and whilst were not able to be upgraded as hoped we were offered the alternative of afternoon tea which we accepted to have later in the stay. After tearing ourselves away from a second complimentary ‘Verve’ we went up to our room, which was a nice size and with a working fireplace. London hotel rooms are traditionally small but this was more than adequate for us and even had room to spare with the amount of luggage we had with us. A lovely touch was the ‘Happy Anniversary” note from Lauren with a mix of lovely little cakes.
The bathroom was of a good size and all decorated in black in white, only issue we had was not being able turn the shower on – had to ring down for someone to come and do for us as it was stuck, also in the bathroom there was a shower above the bath and a separate one, however the separate shower had the showerhead so far out into the small shower we found it difficult to shower in it, but luckily for us we didn’t have to worry after the first night as we got our upgrade the next morning to a Suite and they also still let us have our complimentary afternoon tea (thanks Monika)
Monika and the staff moved all our luggage and clothes from the wardrobe to the new rooms and we were thrilled with the suite, Two doors from the hallway one for bedroom and one for the lounge area. His and hers bathrooms (Although the his one was tiny and not a lot of room to manoeuvre, the hers was fine, also two wardrobes , good tvs in both lounge and bedroom, nespresso machine and a full set of office supplies in the desk drawer).
Loved the little night spray left on our pillow for a relaxing nights sleep – less calories than chocolates. Full breakfast was included in our room rate and each morning Guy would remember how we liked our juices, coffee and tea as well as our egg choice. Great selection of items from the buffet as well as cooked choices
Other reviewers have talked about the complimentary open pantry and we also found this a lovely added touch. From nuts and sweets, through to afternoon hot scones with jam and cream, to hot canapés served at your table from 6-8pm and then from 8pm a good assortment of cold meats and cheeses and some lovely deserts, not to mention free ice cream and water all day. Some nights we just had drinks and the complimentary nibbles in the Executive Lounge rather than going out for a quick meal seeing as we had been on the go all day.
The décor is very English in the Executive lounge and you feel like you are in the library of a fine private home, however the décor of the rooms is more modern and the photos on the website are a true reflection of the hotel.

What is special about Hotel 41 (Like similar style of five star boutique hotels around the world) is the staff. Hotel 41 has an experienced team who have been with the hotel and its sister hotel The Ruebens for some time Every guest is greeted and constantly referred to by their name and each time you return to the hotel Executive Lounge the team are genuinely interested in how your day went (If you are into sharing.)

Special thank you to Lauren, although we only had you for one day of our stay, but Monika, Guy, Tyrone and Magdelina a big thank you for making our stay so wonderful and for also making our visitors feel very special also for your concerns on how Terry was after him not being well during our stay
Monika - you are truly exceptional at your job and I know you have a real passion for what you do and it shows, we thank you not only for making our stay so pleasurable but also for your friendship during our stay and we really hope you will come visit in Australia soon. Magdelina - all the best for the birth of your little one and again thank you for everything. Guy – it was like having a personalised butler each time we entered the lounge, like Monika you have a passion for what you do and it was certainly appreciated – you were the only one who got my coffee and eggs right on my whole trip. Tyrone - loved your good humour and appreciated the great job you did on the front door.
This hotel is certainly not one I would recommend for families with young children (more as a consideration to other guests) But the staff were very good in ensuring the little ones that were staying at the hotel were not an inconvenience to other guests. I cant speak highly enough of our time at Hotel 41 and if we are every wanting to stay in this part of London again this hotel is our first choice
