This is a perfect lodging with David Carter’s strong belief in beauty. I wouldn’t recommend it if you are looking for an accommodation just for sleeping because there are some differences from regular hotels. There may be some inconvenience such as no TV in the room, no private bathroom, and no shower. But for me all of the above was...

Hi Yuki, Thank you so much for the very kind review... It was a real pleasure to meet you and Toshifumi here and I am very glad you both enjoyed your time with us. We do get a lot of lovely guests in from Asia, including many from Japan. There are obviously a few differences in terms of facilities offered,...

Wonderful house perfectly situated for exploring east end. David was a perfect host with lots of suggestions for our weekend visit. The rooms are clean and big. The atmosphere is fairytale like. The coffee in the kitchen makes a wonderful start of the day. The thing I always forget going on a holiday is makeup remover wipes- David had them!...

"If you want to make your visit to London even more exclusive..." Just stay at 40 Winks, meet Mr. David Carter and converse with him. Then you will be taken to the time when you believed in magic or anything was possible in life. Sounds too dramatic?! Trust me, you would join me completely. If you are a bit weary...

What a fabulous privilege to ring in the New Year at Mr. Carter's oasis!! His gracious hospitality immediately puts one at ease as you enter through the rabbit hole into his delightful world of lavish meets whimsical decor. The beautiful bedrooms were private and cozy and the perfect place to de stress from a long flight or a London night...

40 Winks is the most beautiful and magical small hotel one can imagine. The gorgeous interior of house can only be topped by the warmth and charm of It's owner. David was such a perfect host, that by the end of our stay he felt like an old friend. If you want to experience a truly unique and exclusive visit...

We treated ourselves to a stay at 40 Winks as a Christmas present and it was the perfect antidote to the stresses of the festive 'to do' list!

I thought I already knew quite a bit about 40Winks, or at any rate a lot more than I usually do when I am going to stay in a hotel for the first time, because of the countless magazine and tourist's guides reports, photo features, interviews, reviews from this site and other sources I had read. Said all that, of...

40Winks is surely not the everyday hotel as you might know and expect it, but if you are a design aficionado and open to immerse yourself in David's theatrical universe then 40Winks definitely is for you! It is cosy yet super chic, dark yet light, dramatic yet whimsical and most importantly full of love and nurture. David was welcoming, warm...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
40 Winks is a legendary hotel based in hip and trendy East London. Despite our bijou size, we have achieved an almost mythical status since we opened our doors in 2009, somewhat cheekily describing ourselves as the world's first 'micro boutique hotel'. From the beginning, our mission was always a very simple one - to offer an antidote to the bland uniformity of most hotel chains by creating something that is deliriously seductive, memorable and enchanting. Staying here is about much more than having a comfortable bed to sleep in or a place to dump your luggage, it is an immersive experience, an invitation to lose yourself in another more fabulous, more magical world. ... more   less
