“One of the best hotels ever!”
Reviewed 20 September 2010

Just recently back from a stay at Hotel 41. The service, attention to detail and personal touches were unbelievable. Whatever, whenever is truly their mantra, the entire staff knows your name (even people you've yet to meet) and everyone is simply looking to ensure guests are happy. It's been a long time since I have been pleasantly surprised by anything when traveling - this place has earned a spot on my short list of best hotels worldwide. If you are looking for a quaint, boutique hotel that will spoil and pamper you - Hotel 41 is your spot!

The location of the hotel was great. They had a continental type breakfast each morning, then in the evening they had cold cuts, cheese, breads, fruits that stayed available until morning. It was nice to have snacks & relax at night. The only complaint I had was the room was TINY! I felt chlostrophobic in there. The bathroom had no outlets for anything other than a shaver. I didn't enjoy being in the room, but the hotel, service & staff were excellent. It was also very clean.

We stayed at the 41 for 2 nights in mid-September at the end of a two week trip. We have stayed there many times before and, as usual, it was wonderful. It is not a large hotel; it is like staying in a private club.

We were offered champagne upon arrival which we naturally accepted. We were then shown to our room; at our request we were moved to a slightly different room and we really appreciate the fact that the hotel staff wants to ensure that you are satisfied.

We were happy to see that Antoinette was still part of the team. She is always incredibly friendly and a pleasure to deal with. We wish her the best of luck in her upcoming wedding!!

As always, breakfast was more than adequate with attentive service.

Again, we have stayed at the 41 hotel many times and though we have debated staying in other hotels, we keep coming back. We recommend that you do the same. As an aside, we have also stayed in both the 1 and 2 bedroom apartments that are affiliated with the hotel and highly recommend those if you want to pretend you are a London resident. They are another great option.

My husband and I had a wonderful 3-night stay at 41 this past April. We enjoyed the location, hospitality demonstrated by the staff and the room itself (split level suite), outfitted with every accoutrement. One particular employee, Lauren, deserves a special mention. While journeying across Europe during the volcanic ash 'crisis', we found ourselves re-routed overland from Prague to Amsterdam. Our pleasant but overwhelmed Amsterdam concierge had difficulty arranging transport on the Eurostar to London (with an interim stay in Bruges) for our impending stay at 41. I gave a call to 41 and had the good fortune to connect with Lauren. Rather than spend any more of our precious vacation time trying to negotiate an alternate route to London, Lauren spent a considerable part of her day working on our behalf and successfully resolving our travel concerns, allowing us to enjoy our Amsterdam sightseeing. Lauren's manner was consistently eager, responsive and registered not a note of exasperation given 41 was undoubtly dealing with like issues. Although we had never stayed at 41 when in London, we felt like time-honored guests returning to an away-from-home sanctuary. My husband and I stay in 5-star hotels on vacation with usually great concierge service, however, 41 demonstrates they indeed belong at the top.

We stayed for two nights prior to a cruise, September 1 and 2. We booked Hotel 41 based on all the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. It certainly lived up to the great reviews and can see why Hotel 41 is in the #1 position on Trip Advisor. Staff is very gracious and accommodating. We booked a special offered on the website that included daily breakfast and a dinner next door in the sister-restaurant, in the Library Restaurant. The breakfast was very good and so was the dinner. We found the location to be ideal. We booked the lowest price room category, and my only complaint is that the room is so tiny. We were expecting that, and it didn't really matter that much, except there was abolutely no place to put our luggage. We did not want to unpack as this was only a 2 day stay prior to a cruise. Loved the complementary wi-fi and the complementary goodies left out in the afternoon. Would definitely stay here again and only wished we had stayed longer. Next time would book a larger room.

Since Hotel 41 continues to be #1 in London trip advisor ratings, I thought I would add just a few additional comments about the details that meant a great deal to us, that no one has mentioned previously.

Whether you arrive in denim or furs, the staff treats everyone with courteous respect and actually listens to you and your requests, acting on it immediately. You feel pampered and special from the minute you check in.

I abhor dirt and demand cleanliness, and this hotel gleams! Bathrooms were spotless so you could slip into those big, enviting tubs without a worry. Cocktails were served in luminous glasses, buffets had no spills unattended, and there was a freshmess throughout the hotel, enhanced by beautiful florals. The Executive Lounge has a huge skylight that floods the room with sunlight as you relax in comfort with bright, white table linens and not a spot of dust on the gorgeous woodwork and library. In the evening, candles are lite by the staff and the room becomes an intimate and cozy hide-a-way after a day of sight seeing.

Just a few other amenities were heated towel bars, beds and pillows that
welcome you softly and comfortably, window coverings that block out the sunlight for late sleepers, umbrellas, long handled shoe horns, hair dryers, and morning newpapers left hanging on the outside of your door in a little cloth sack.

Hotel 41 is the ultimate 5 star boutique hotel that should not be overlooked for your next London visit.
