One may think 40 Winks is for the famous and the rich. Well, it is possible you share the Golden Bathroom with an actor from Game of Thrones (potentially you will, indeed). One may think 40 Winks is always fully booked and it is hard to get lucky. One may think the prices for 40 Winks are a bit odd....

I prescribe everybody has a minimum of one stay at Mr Carter's house in their life. I felt inspired by my too-brief stay and am still reflecting on the interior a week later. Although the place looks great in photos I think it looked better 'in the flesh' and I only regret I couldn't stay longer to soak up the...

I had never been and I took part to a seance evening. The all experience was exciting and delightful, the performer was exceptional and kept the audience engaged. All the staff were friendly and welcoming, cocktails were delicious and I left with a massive smile! I almost don't want to recommend it for fear of finding it all booked next...

I adore the experience of spending time within Mr Carter's world. Every angle of this gorgeous London house is considered and planned, creative genius with such genuine talent, and I find it is completely infectious truly inspiring. But even more amazing is to spend time with the collection of beautiful souls he has around him, and breakfast with Mr Carter...

Just when you think you've discovered every nook in this great city of London, enter Mr David Carter and 40 Winks. I wanted to find something unique for a birthday treat for my fiancé. She is London born and bred and I've lived here for over 20 years so there are times you think, 'what else is out there that...

A serious Wow, meeting David was a delightful experience one not to forget. 40 winks is best described as a treasure. The house itself is welcoming, warm and friendly. Do not look anywhere else or you will be setterling for second best.

40 Winks is, in all my travels, quite unique. It's stunningly decorated, and David certainly is a fascinating chap, so make sure you plan in time to both take in the decor and talk. This might be a good maxim for life. It does entirely feel like a stay at an eccentric uncle's - but ah, if we all had...

This is a perfect lodging with David Carter’s strong belief in beauty. I wouldn’t recommend it if you are looking for an accommodation just for sleeping because there are some differences from regular hotels. There may be some inconvenience such as no TV in the room, no private bathroom, and no shower. But for me all of the above was...

Wonderful house perfectly situated for exploring east end. David was a perfect host with lots of suggestions for our weekend visit. The rooms are clean and big. The atmosphere is fairytale like. The coffee in the kitchen makes a wonderful start of the day. The thing I always forget going on a holiday is makeup remover wipes- David had them!...

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
