Why so chic?
Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
41 Hotel holds a rather exceptional location; set on Buckingham Palace Road it overlooks the Royal Mews and Buckingham Palace gardens. True to its spectacular setting, the style here is decidedly lavish - with a black and white colour scheme, dark wood panelling and intricate chandeliers only a fraction of its décor.
It gets better; not only was the hotel formerly owned by the Duke of Buckingham, it also holds a string of awards. Plus, with only 28 rooms there’s a remarkably exclusive feel to the place - helped along by the wonderful staff who will have you feeling like royalty in no time.
41 Hotel welcomes furry friends, who will receive VIP treatment throughout their stay (please notify the hotel well ahead of arrival).
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dinner time. The English Grill is a fine dining restaurant serving a range of exquisite British dishes.
Alternatively, head to the hotel’s Bbar next door for a delicious range of South African-inspired dishes, or the Executive Lounge for anything from afternoon tea to an array of British classics. There is also a well-stocked honesty bar to make use of, and an excellent breakfast is served in the mornings.
The 28 rooms at 41 Hotel have been beautifully designed with a monochrome colour palette and plenty of dark wood furnishings. While all rooms vary is décor, expect anything from fun checkered flooring and crackling fireplaces to extraordinary conservatory roofing and leather chests. It’s worth noting that some of the rooms have two tiers, so may not be suitable for those with limited mobility.
If you can’t drag your fellow travellers to the local gym, the hotel offers a ‘Sports Buddy’ service (yes, really), where you can invite a member of staff to accompany you to a range of different sports including tennis and trampolining.
London is a city chock-a-block with things to see. Buckingham Palace is just a stroll away - see if you can catch a ‘changing of the guard’ ceremony while you’re there. The iconic Big Ben is also within easy reach, as is St James’ Park and the Victoria Palace Theatre.
