Myself and my boyfriend recently stayed in 40 Winks for three nights as part of a week long trip to visit friends, family and enjoy London. We absolutely loved it. David is an absolute gem much like his house. He's full of great conversation and fantastic recommendations about food, design and the area in general. His house is beautiful, intriguing...

I stayed at 40 Winks in May 2015. It is the most remarkable hotel I have stayed. The design is amazing and David and the lovely Maria were wonderful hosts. The place is not for everyone: if you want TV in your room, to wear your shoes indoors and the facilities of a standard hotel then this is not for...

40 Winks is another world -- perfectly located in the East End and sumptuously appointed. I will dream of the bath tub and lovely sheets. David was a font of information about London and all it has to offer. So glad that I sought it out.

Just a few minutes away from colorful Stepney Green tube station, you will find a tall black door with a small sign on the right that says '40 Winks'. You press the ring and will be welcomed by a man with a reserved smile and a big bowler hat. The noise of the steet behind you will distance as you...

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
