Beautiful hotel, the staff is incredibly helpful- our driver the hotel arranged Eddie was amazing, he took us everywhere in the English countryside we wanted to get to and we were so comfortable in the beautiful Mercedes car we rode in, and he was very friendly.

My husband and I spent Labor Day Weekend at Hotel 41 and could not have been more pleased! Every detail was carefully orchestrated, from champagne upon arrival (or mimosas in our case as it was 8AM :-), to a luxurious pillow menu, to unique goodies left on our bed at turndown service. The staff were lovely and incredibly accommodating and we could not get enough of the lounge/pantry. As is clearly a theme throughout all reviews, the hotel prides itself on offering delicious bites and an extensive wine/cocktail list throughout the day and late into the night - which we found ourselves enjoying post midnight more than once! It was such a treat to return to the hotel and feel right at home and this speaks to the lack of pretension associated with such high standards and such well regarded service. \n\nThe location cannot be beat and was a perfect jumping off point to walk to different sites around London. Whether it be a walk through St. James Park, a quick jaunt to Buckingham Palace, a leisurely stroll along the birdcage walk....the options are endless.\n\nWith its stunning interior, delightful toiletry products, charming in-room touches (like a whatever, whenever button on the telephone) this is a top notch hotel and one we can't wait to return to on our next trip to London!\n\nPro Tip -- in the warmer months, they have an incredible roof deck/bar. I only wish we'd had more time to enjoy it!

Upon check in we were greeted with a variety of Champagnes to choose a glass from. This set the tone for our entire stay. Everyone there gave us spectacular service!There was fruit and chocolates in the room. The cocktails in the afternoon were unique and delicious. The accompanying appetizers were wonderful. This was the best service we've experienced in over 40 years of travelling!

This boutique luxury hotel is uniquely situated on the 5th floor of an older building across the street from Buckingham palace. The staff welcomes guests with champagne at check-in. We celebrated our 25th anniversary during our stay, and were surprised to find a cake in our room for the occasion. The hotel recommendation of Rules restaurant for our anniversary dinner was perfect. You can\u2019t beat the personal service you receive at Hotel 41.

We were fortunate to celebrate our 40th Anniversary at Hotel 41, and it was worthy of the occasion; from the nicely appointed room, to the attentive staff at every turn, and finally to the wonderful breakfasts, tea, and evening spreads, it is a hotel unmatched in our lifetimes. Especially enjoyed the interactions with Steve and Stefan, who made us feel like family and not guests. The hotel is located in a great part of London, with easy access to most of the city's attractions, but really, why would you want to leave? We will be back!

We wanted somewhere special for our wedding night, the photos and reviews were so good we treated ourselves for our special day, albeit booking a regular room.\nFrom the second we arrived, we were treated like royalty, from the doorman taking our bags, to the complimentary champagne when signing in and for every single moment during our stay, every single member of staff very politely greeted us by name.\nArriving at our room we were told that they had upgraded our room to the Conservatory suite, which was beyond our wildest dreams, it was utterly perfect, down to every tiny detail.\n\nWe had dinner in the English grill (again with a complimentary bottle of champagne) which was delightful. \n\nFinally returning to our room, to be greeted with scattered rose petals, candles, soft music in the background and even a cake with congratulations written on it, was such a lovely surprise.\n\nAfter a lovely breakfast sadly it was time to check out, we really did not want this wonderful experience to end.\n\nWe would like to thank every single member of staff, for making our special day so utterly fantastic. The memory will stay in our hearts forever.\n\nMr and Mrs Carr.

This private hotel is pricy but worth it. When we first arrived, , , kind of strange, the lobby decor reminded me of Alice in Wonderland. Got lost several times trying to find our room, the hallways being narrow, color scheme, felt like a maze, hard to explain, but cool. It's not your ordinary hotel, that's for sure but lots of amenities. The top floor restaurant with a big skylight is always open for free snacks and deserts. You must pay for meals and room service but the staff is terrific and goes the extra mile. We stayed in a couple of their rooms, very cosy and warm decor. If you can stay on the top floor, I would advise that as you can hear the cleaning of the rooms and walking back and forth, building structure is old. Now, to the horses. Right across the street is the Royal Mews and museum. This is one of the stables where the horses stay for Buckingham Palace and Royal events. Then right up the street is the Palace, Hyde Park, everything is walking distance. I highly recommend staying at this hotel for a least one night to get the vibe.

Have to admit that we were a little skeptical about whether Hotel 41 could live up to all the great Trip Advisor reviews, but it so deserves them! First of all, the service was absolutely outstanding- usually you might note one or two people that stand out, but in this case every single staff person we interacted with made us feel welcome and like valued guests. The hotel is small, only about 30 rooms, so it has the wonderful feel of an intimate, luxurious inn, but it has all the amenities of a full size luxury hotel (in part due to it connecting through a discrete door in the lobby to a sister larger hotel property-The Rubens at the Palace-next door). In terms of the room, we booked the only room that was available at the time, an Executive King Room, and were pleasantly surprised as it was much more spacious than the pictures on the website made it look. The room was beautiful with absolutely everything we needed or would have wanted, extremely comfortable bed, lovely sitting area and desk, and plenty of closet and drawer space for both of us. The bathroom was just the right size, neither small or too large, with great water pressure and my favourite toiletries from Penhaligons. They also leave welcome treats for you in the room when you check in and a different little treat every night at turn down. Housekeeping staff was phenomenal also, besides the standard stuff, some little examples - they would tie up our charging cords for us every time, and when I left my glasses out one day, came back to find they had left a cleaning cloth for them on top of the glasses case. In terms of food, there are a few full service restaurants at Rubens next door, but the real treat here is Hotel 41's lounge (beautiful room that looks like an old English library with skylights and a rooftop terrace). The lounge is constantly stocked with complimentary treats (complimentary water and non-alcoholic drinks all day), crisps, popcorn, candy and other treats during day, warm scones in afternoon, and canap\u00E9s, cheese, fruit and desserts in evening (until 1:30am). For a reasonable fee, breakfast is also served in the lounge in the morning (both buffet and hot entree options) and an honour bar is available all day for any drinks. And finally a great location in the heart of it all (right outside the walls of Buckingham Palace), and less than a 5 minute walk to Victoria Tube station to connect everywhere (we barely used it as we loved walking everywhere). I loved this location as we could walk to all the sites easily, yet not anywhere as crazy as the area near Piccadilly and Trafalgar. We hope to return for another stay in the future - this will be the new standard by which we judge all our future hotel stays.

I have been going on an annual trip with five of my high school buddies for more than 30 years now. Typically, we stay at the club level at Ritz-Carlton hotels or at the closest thing we can find to that level of service.\nThis year was our first foray to Europe. My neighbor and travel agent recommended that we stay at Hotel 41 in London. He has created a bit of a problem for himself, however, as I don't see how he can top Hotel 41. What a hidden gem. The executive lounge is exactly the set-up that we love, a warm and welcoming gathering place for us to hang out in between the day's activities. The rooms were superb. But most importantly, the staff was amazing. Stefan, Patricia and Magdalena in particular were so warm, welcoming and personable that they became an integral part of our trip. We will remember them always. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. (Not to mention it is in a great location).

My favourite hotel in London and I got to visit it twice in a month. My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous weekend in June when we were so excited to see the beautifully refurbished roof terrace. A beautiful sunny day in a beautiful spot. \n\nA few weeks later, I returned to 41 to meet up with my cousin and goddaughter who were over from the us. We started on the roof, where Stefan allowed Meaghan, my goddaughter, to perform the sabrage - opening our champagne bottle with a sabre. A really special ambition fulfilled. We then went back downstairs for a delicious afternoon tea where both Stefan and Steve looked after us so well.\n\nThank you to Lauren for making all the arrangements and for making both occasions so memorable. The team at 41 are unique!

I\u2019ve been staying in London hotels for the last 14 years and have never experienced such fantastic staff and service. The hotel itself is gorgeous and the location perfect for all the best London attractions but what stood out for me was the attention to detail and individual attention this hotel offers. It\u2019s an absolute gem and would give it 6 stars if I could. Thank you for a brilliant stay.\nKate, Meg and \uD83D\udc36.

I can\u2019t believe that it had been 15 yrs since we last stayed at this wonderful hotel. What a mistake and from now on, it will be our London home whenever we visit. The hotel is in a perfect location adjacent to Buckingham Palace so it is centrally located to many of the London districts. Boutique in style, this hotel is very classy, very comfortable. The rooms are extremely comfortable and fully appointed. You will not want for anything and if you happen to require anything else there is always the \u201Cwhatever, whenever\u201D hotline. The service at this hotel really is unparalleled and they always make one feel so welcomed and taken care of. The library which also serves as the lounge and breakfast area (and the breakfasts are delicious ) is comfortable and serves all the snacks and drinks that one may require, and more. Superlatives are not enough to describe this hotel so if you ever get the chance to stay here, do!

I cannot think of enough superlatives to describe this absolute gem but I will try. First of all the location is fantastic. You are literally around the corner from Buckingham Palace in one direction and Victoria Station in the other. The gorgeous St. James Park is right down the road. The hotel staff couldn't have been more lovely or welcoming from the moment we stepped through the door. All rooms as well as the Executive Lounge are on the 5th floor. The Executive Lounge is basically where everything takes place--reception, breakfast, afternoon tea and evening snacks. The lounge must be experienced to believe it. The food is delectable. Afternoon tea is so enjoyable and eloquent. After a Long day of touring, you must stop into the lounge for the most delightful evening buffet. It was truly a highlight. We really felt like we had been transported back in time. We were also fortunate enough to have booked the conservatory room. The entire ceiling is an actual skylight (with automatic shades) although we didn't close them once at night. Such a lovely way to fall asleep. Last but not least, is the outstanding staff. First class, friendly, professional. They made our stay one of the most memorable we have ever had. We must also give a special shout-out to Stefan. We so thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast conversations! If you have an opportunity to stay at this enchanting hotel, you will not be disappointed. It is truly one of the greats!

This was absolutely the best hotel we have ever stayed at ever. We have stayed at Four Season properties, Mandarin Orientals, etc so we know 5 star, and Hotel 41 is on another stratosphere from even those brands and experiences. There is no where else I would stay if I was in London again.\n\nThe layout of the property very much lends itself to a vip feel. The entrance is an unassuming set of double doors next to the more obvious hotel entrance to the Rubens property. You can really only tell you\u2019re at Hotel 41 from its banner flying above and it requires a hotel key card to even access the building. Once inside, you are whisked up to the fifth floor. The entire boutique hotel takes up only this floor so its very easy to navigate and also very intimate. \n\nThe lobby and restaurant of the hotel called the Executive Lounge is where the staff will bring you for check in, complete with some Ros\u00E9 or champagne and a tour of the property and your room. This is where you\u2019ll get your intro to how fabulous the staff are. Initially there was some confusion about who we were. They thought we were some couple when we entered the hotel and then \u201Cthe Parkers\u201D when we were taken to the lounge. Only one other instance when a note was sent to our room for the \u201cbubs\u201D were we mis-labeled but I really can\u2019t fault them for that because other then these 3 instances, every single staff member knew our names and would greet us instantly by those names. How are you guys this good! I understand if staff we came in contact with previously would know our names and that its a smaller hotel but the fact that AlL the staff, even people we hadn\u2019t met yet knew our names! Get outta town; that is service! \n\nThen there are the amenities which we took full advantage of. Get yourself well acquinted with the Executive Lounge because you don\u2019t want to miss out on this gem. The plunder pantry here is such a treat with all the quality hot and cold free food you can get anytime of day. We loved ending the night here grabbing some free ice cream to take to our rooms as a night cap or getting some free sparkling or still water. Also don\u2019t miss having breakfast here. I can say that there was nothing quite like cozying up on a comfortable couch during a rainy morning with the water tapping on the skylight above, enjoying some warm tea and delicious food around the rich mahagony and books of the study. Its the best way to start the day! I miss that room so much even now writing this.\n\nOur room was also a quiet, great retreat to come back to after a Long day of siteseeing. We were located near the elevators but surprisingly never heard a peep from them or any guests. Our windows had views of the Royal Mews though its a bit hindered by the concrete railing of the building. When we arrived there was a tray of mini desserts to welcome us (all delish! ). The bed was super comfortable and I thought the room was pretty spacious. I also loved the number of outlets available for charging pretty much everywhere; we didn\u2019t even need to bring our global chargers! \n\nThe only things we didn\u2019t like about our room was probably more toward us not being big international travellers and not knowing the way of things. We were really confused with how the lights worked. It seemed like you couldn\u2019t turn all the lights off unless you flicked off the master switch. I know there must have been a way to turn on/off different light combinations because of how the turn down staff would set up the room (rose petals and candles! ) but we never got the hang of it. We also weren\u2019t fans of the rainfall shower heads. You get a shower and a bath/shower combo in the bathroom but we used the bath/shower combo because we kept making a slippery mess trying to keep the water from spilling out of the tub; I could see myself making an even bigger mess from the shower. The tub was also super tall to climb in and out of so you pretty much had to use the hand rail to even attempt to get in or out without slipping. \n\nRegardless of all that, it didn\u2019t put a damper on our thoughts on the property at all. The staff would leave various turn down goodies each night and one day we even came back to find a decorative tin of shortbread cookies from Buckingham Palace. The very same tin, I might add, that I had wanted to buy and had decided against because I\u2019d already purchased a bunch of other decorative tins full of teas at other tourist sites. I never told the staff this so they must be psychic. I really can\u2019t wrap my mind around this level of service. This hotel is the end all be all of 5 star luxury hotels. It\u2019s location is steps from Buckingham Palace, many other tourist sites, and prime underground and coach stations as well as a quick walk to the West End for shows. If you are going to London do not consider anything else. You will have the best possible trip if you pick this place; I guarantee it.

We have never experienced this level of service and attention. It is quite an extraordinary hotel and we loved everything about it. We had a really hard time getting motivated to get out and explore London because we just wanted to stay at the hotel and enjoy the pampering.

Having never been to London, my wife and I embarked on a search for the perfect place to stay to enable us to best enjoy our trip, During a search of places to stay we discovered Hotel 41, which claimed to be a small boutique hotel centrally located in close proximity to Buckingham Palace. It truly did not disappoint in any way. I had let the hotel know that we were celebrating our anniversary. Well, upon our arrival, the room which was beautifully appointed in all respects had a large bed pillow reading Happy Anniversary, a large bouquet of flowers and a delicious cake - none of which was expected. The room and the entire hotel were spotless throughout our stay. However, I have missed the best part. And it is the staff. They were each extraordinarily friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and truly made us feel important, yet at home. At no time were they intrusive and they were quick to attend to our requests. A few names that we recall that must be mentioned are Jean Nicolus, Stefan, Magdalena, Lauren and Gabriel. We regret not having the names of the others as they all deserve being mentioned! \nWe have travelled to many places in Europe and the United States and can say that none can compare to Hotel 41. When we return, there is no other place we would even consider staying.

We chose this hotel because of the good reviews and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were made to feel special. The staff was very attentive, friendly and professional at all times. We were upgraded to the Balmoral suite which was very nice as there was 2 bathrooms for 3 of us.\nThe executive lounge was nice and so was the rooftop.\nSpecial thanks to Dean, Jean Nicolas, Patricia (the lady at breakfast) and John who welcomed us with a nice glass of champagne for looking after us so well.\nFrom now on, hotel 41 will be our hotel of choice for our week ends in London.

One of my all time favourite hotels. This is a small boutique hotel not far from Victoria Station. I stayed in the Conservatory suite and it was magnificent! There is a sitting room downstairs with bathroom. Upstairs over the bed is a glass ceiling - you can remotely open the blinds so that you can see the sky. Beautiful! There is also a double Jacuzzi tub upstairs in the large master bath. The service at the hotel is amazing - they make you feel so welcome and tend to your every need.

We stayed at Hotel 41 to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. It was a fantastic experience which exceeded our already high expectations. Nothing was too much trouble for the excellent team who made us feel so welcome. Located in the heart of Victoria, this guest only hotel has the feel of an exclusive club with attentive service to match. If you are celebrating a special occasion or looking for something a little different then we would throughly recommend this gem of a hotel.

This is a boutique, boutique hotel. Hotel 41 has 28 rooms and occupies a single floor. Talk about intimate! In typical European fashion, the rooms are on the smaller size. However, the decor and attention to scale allows me to confidently call the rooms \u201Ccharming\u201D or \u201Cromantic\u201D; take your pick.\n\nWhile the hotel is small, it\u2019s service stature is tremendous. They anticipate your needs which makes the experience stand out. The entire staff quickly knows you by name and are at the ready to assist with any request large or small. A package delivered to the hotel days in advance was in our room upon arrival. I casually mentioned having the fireplace lit and it was roaring upon our return from dinner. While checking out at 7:30a we mentioned we were heading to the airport. The staff promptly create a \u201Cto go\u201D breakfast box for us. \n\nHotel 41 recently opened a private rooftop lounge that should not be missed. Unlike some complimentary breakfasts; the offering here was robust. In addition, complimentary canap\u00E9s and toasties are available throughout the day. \n\nThe size of the property does not limit the amenities. Those wanting a workout can use a nearby fitness club. There is a sister property next door that has a lounge with live music (The Leopard Lounge). Hotel 41 also has a relationship with the neighboring restaurant, The B Bar. The B Bar serves casual food with a south African twist. The outstanding service at Hotel 41 extends to the B Bar. On our second trip to their patio, the server promptly gave me a lap blanket upon remembering that I had brought my own on my first visit. \n\nAlas, nothing is perfect and that includes Hotel 41. Their was a problem with the hvac system in our room which made for an uncomfortable sleep on our last evening. The person dispatched was not able to figure out the problem.

My daughter and I spent a week here. The service was truly outstanding, as was our room. The staff was attentive and remembered our orders for breakfast after the second morning. The treats left for us with our turn down service were always delightful - sometimes fresh fruit and other times a sample size of one of their branded beauty products. The day we saw Hamilton, our treat was fresh fruit and macaroons bearing the Hamilton logo.
