Overview

Intimate boutique neighboring Buckingham Palace that channels a plush London club and sets a standard in service—without any of the stuffiness

The Lowdown

At this swish, 30-room hotel, steps from Buckingham Palace, even the check-in process—a personalized affair that unfolds from the comfort of a leather couch and crackling fireplace, with complimentary flutes of champagne—is unexpectedly luxurious. It’s just a sampler for what’s to come, thanks to a 2:1 staffer-to-guest ratio. From the comprehensive form patrons fill out prior to arriving, which touches on pillow preferences and preferred spa treatments, to a unique buddy program that pairs staff with guests to partake in a range of outdoor activities (golf; trampolining), there’s little the attentive managerial team isn’t ready to tackle. Rooms are chic black-and-white chambers, furnished with brass lighting and sleek writing desks—but you’ll likely spend most of your time at the Executive Lounge, a mahogany den decked with chandeliers that stands in for a traditional restaurant. Here, a steady succession of on-the-house snacks, part of the hotel’s generous “graze all day” policy, includes mini tubs of ice cream, afternoon scones and jams, and a midnight meat-and-cheese platter that elevates an already sumptuous stay.

In the Area

Situated across the Royal Mews and behind Buckingham Palace, you’re sandwiched between London’s cultural nucleus, Westminster—beware of selfie sticks—and its refined aristocratic heart, Belgravia. With its stone churches, white stucco homes, and secluded gardens, its no wonder the latter, an especially regal neighborhood, is one of the wealthiest districts in the world. You’re also just five minutes from the British capital’s oldest royal park (one of eight scattered across the city), St. James, a pristinely manicured playground with unmatched London Eye and Westminster views.

Exceptional Service and Comfort
Reviewed 1 day ago

Without a doubt this is one of the best hotels i have stayed in. Being Local to the area i only reserve staying at 5 star hotels abroad but this was a treat and a class above the usual hotels.
There is so much character to the hotel and rooms themselves. The breakfast spread was amazing and plenty of options for a vegetarian like myself.
The bathroom was clean, spacious and full of all complementary toiletries.
Warm and cosy beds.
Highly recommend

Spent 3 nights here for my 50th Birthday. Suite was amazing and immaculate. Little touches like pillow spray before bed make it extra special. Bed very comfortable. All staff very polite & can't do enough for you. Breakfast delicious. Will definitely return.

The Best Service Ever - Loved it!
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed at the 41 Hotel for 3 nights during our honeymoon. We received a warm welcome with champagne and dessert. The staff were absolutely wonderful. They helped us plan our trip at every turn and really cared about our experience. It felt nice to come in at the end of the day and chat with the staff and get their advice. They'll remind you to take an umbrella or book things for you and point you in the right direction. They help you WITHOUT HESITATION. You never feel like you're bothering them or you're a burden. We've stayed at properties like the FS, Ritz, etc. and the service is on par, if not much better.

There's also a lovely executive lounge where there are free snacks. Every day in your room they'll leave you something new or cute like eye cream or something. If you like to feel special - stay here.

I'll definitely be back.

Remarkable, Generous & Kind!

I have booked just one night at Hotel 41, as I was curious to know the reasons behind all of these positive reviews, and I wasn’t disappointed! Since the first moment the hotel treated me with generosity, as I’ve arrived to the hotel around 6am and I knew that the check-in time was 2pm, but without any hesitation, they checked me in one of the rooms till my room was ready.
The staff was amazingly kind and helpful, the bed was so comfortable and the sleeping experience was second to none.
I wish they had bidet in the bathrooms. Otherwise the stay was a happy story to tell!
