We Londoners are demanding. We want to be entertained, but we want the location, the venue and the act all to be secret. Now, we just want to stay in; but just not at our own house and still be entertained. David Carter, the owner of East London’s boutique hotel – 40 Winks, is the perfect character to host an...

This was a wonderfully unique experience; one which I will never forget. Absolute hospitality, stunning interiors and a feast for the eyes. I stayed in the single room and enjoyed the delight of the top floor bathroom. Feeling like Cleopatra, I bathed surrounded by bronze leaf Chinese wallpaper as water tumbled out of the lion’s mouth into the cast iron...

David Carter allows a spectacular dive into London city life, inviting you into his most unique house for an always too short stay. His hospitality is exceptional! Do not expect typical hotel. His recommendations for eating and going out are great.

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
