Just had two wonderful nights at the gem that is Hotel 41. Not my first stay but my first solo visit to meet with chums for some post lockdown retail therapy. The amazing team made me so welcome, just like coming to a second home. As always the room was fabulous, with everything a girl could need and although in the centre of London I slept exceptionally well. The food is great, the lounge larder is plentiful and extremely tasty, especially after a very tiring day shopping. The extremely thoughtful staff even made sure my room had bath salts and relaxation sleep spray to help me chill out. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel - simply put its wonderful!
Where do I start? This was our second visit to Hotel 41 and somehow it was even better than the first! Due to the pandemic, our previous two bookings had to be rearranged. We got engaged at Hotel 41 on the 18th December 2015 and have always wanted to return and last month we finally got there. What makes it special, beyond the beautiful decor, attention to detail, delicious food, etc, is the exceptional service. Somehow, the staff make every guest feel they are their most valued customer and they will go above and beyond to ensure you have the best possible experience. We were welcomed by Erica and shown to the lift. As soon as we entered the lounge, Lauren welcomed us, ensured we were comfortable and brought the champagne trolley over so we could enjoy our first bit of luxury as we checked in. We then decided to get some lunch and soak up the atmosphere as we reminisced about our previous visit and were brought breadsticks, olives and nuts to nibble. Although we had originally planned to return in December, September showed us a totally different side to the hotel. Light floods through the skylight which makes the lounge (a relatively small space) bright and airy. My husband chose to have the wagyu burger while I opted for the lobster mac and cheese. Hotel 41 will make reservations on your behalf for other restaurants but we’re really glad we decided to stay at the hotel as the food was excellent and David, who served us, was charmingly attentive. After lunch, Marlen showed us to our room. We were lucky enough to stay in 4128 - the Balmoral Suite. Wow, just wow, it was something else! We have never stayed anywhere as fancy as this room. There are two bathrooms, both with showers (one has a bath) and a separate double shower as well! There’s an office and dining area and two sofas in the lounge area. You also have luxuries like electronic blinds, a huge walk in closet and multiple TVs. I’d arranged to have a bottle of champagne in our room and this was beautifully presented alongside a handwritten card, a cake and petit fours. It really is the little things that make Hotel 41, and we want to say a heartfelt thank you to (the other) Lauren for the kind words and sentiment in the card. We then enjoyed a sunny afternoon on the rooftop (this didn’t exist in 2015) sipping cocktails and watching the hotel’s bees from a distance. The hives are tucked out the way but it’s worth going to have a look. Sunglasses, suncream and snacks are always readily available so it’s hard to want for anything…but we were still asked by David just incase! We enjoyed a relaxing evening in the lounge consisting of exquisite canapés (the croque monsieur is very tasty) cocktails and generous glasses of wine. During this time Marlen was kind enough to help us recreate a photo we took nearly 6 years ago, we chatted with Ioanna and had an in-depth conversation about the icecream selection before finally deciding on black coconut and gin and tonic! We both think you’ll be hard pushed to find a more comfortable bed than the ones at Hotel 41. We definitely had a great night’s sleep and enjoyed a lazy lie in before heading to breakfast. After a more-than-filling breakfast (good luck deciding what to have!) where we were looked after by another David, it was finally time to check out. Throughout our stay, we could have requested ‘anything, any time’ via the button on our room phone but the most we ever desired were a couple of extra bottles of still water after an indulgent evening…and of course, these arrived within a couple of minutes on a tray to our room. If you’re looking for a weekend where you feel truly spoilt, look no further as you won’t be disappointed.…
The air temperature of the room is too cold, the heater is not working. We informed the front desk and they said they will sort it out, but nothing changed. So we spent the night freezing. This is not 5* hotel quality and we expected more as this is one of the top hotel in London on Tripadvisor.
Beautiful hotel, with a lovely room and a wonderful lounge in which to relax and enjoy food and beverages. It also had by far the best service we have ever experienced, surpassing that of any other 5-star hotel we have stayed at in Europe or North America. Perfect for any special trip or occasion, and I greatly appreciated celebrating my birthday here. This is now our hotel of choice in London.
We visited Hotel 41 this past weekend for the second time. It was even better than I remembered. The attentive staff and incredible service make this hotel the gem that it is. All of the little touches are just perfection. I was there to celebrate my birthday and I felt so special and spoilt from the moment I arrived to the moment I left. The car journey home was even made better by the hot chocolates they sent us away with. We will back as soon as we can find an excuse!
