5* grandeur at the sublime Hotel 41 - rated the #1 hotel in London

Hotel 41 is amazing. That's not just our opinion; the hotel is ranked the #1 hotel in all of that London on the bane of Bannatyne, TripAdvisor.

Hotel 41 is an elegant and stylish boutique hotel, located directly opposite the Royal Mews and just behind Buckingham Palace, you couldn't stay closer to royalty if you tried. Indeed, you'll feel like royalty when you stay here too.

This hotel strikes a somewhat quirky note - with black and white checks and stripes infusing the decor throughout, from the  carpets to bed covers and lampshades - you may think you've fallen down the rabbit hole and woken up in wonderland.
Service at Hotel 41 though, is down to earth and highly attentive, anticipating your every need - it's no surprise that the hotel received the TripAdvisor's Travellers Choice Award for 2009.

Many of London's key attractions are only a stone's throw from this hotel and you're within walking distance from Downing Street, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. The West End, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square are also just around the corner - London is your oyster.

"When a hotel says they aim to be a 'Home-from-home' you can take it with a pinch of salt. This is different. Not only do they keep records of requests and the special things we like, they make sure you get them on a return visit."

"Wow. Hotel 41 was a lovely Boutique Hotel which is about 5 mins walk from Victoria tube station and a pleasure to stay there! We were treated like royalty the moment you stepped through the door, the staff were a delight, all smiles could not do enough for you and made you feel very special!"

"It was my best London hotel experience, ever. My husband loved the 'club' feel of the lounge/library area. Can't wait to go again and I have already told all of my friends to book there."
