It’s hard to beat this Buckingham Palace location, and Hotel 41’s luxurious hotel is ranked one of London’s top properties. A boutique hotel, the five-star Hotel 41 features only 30 rooms and suites tucked away on Buckingham Palace Road. Formely a private mansion, Hotel 41 became a hotel property in 1998. Families will find they are welcome, and kids receive a separate check-in with welcome pack, special turndown treats, child-sized bathrobes and slippers, cribs and small cots, kids’ menus, and packed lunches to take away for sightseeing excursions. The hotel provides free snacks from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. all day, as well as free ice cream, afternoon tea, champagne at check in, evening hors d’ouevres from 6 to 8 p.m., and more treats from 8:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. In fact, the hotel provides so many snacks and treats, you’ll feel like a guest in a home, where you are allowed access to the kitchen at all hours. Onsite dining is available in the hotel’s casual bbar and restaurant, as well as a dinner-only fine dining Library Restaurant.
No two of the 30 guest rooms are alike, with rooms outfitted with king or double beds. Junior Suites are split level with a bedroom on the upper floor and a lounge on the lower floor. The Conservancy Suite features a split level, as well, with a king bedroom, a separate dining room, living room, and two bathrooms. Families will especially like the hotel’s one- and two-bedroom apartments. These feature fully equipped kitchens and sofa beds in the living room for additional guests. Those staying in apartments also enjoy free Wi-Fi, DVD players, iPod docking stations, and washers and dryers.
Pets are also welcome at the hotel, with beds, toys, treats and clean-up bars.

We stayed here for two nights on this occasion because one didn’t feel enough last time, on our next visit we hope to stay for three!
We can not recommend this hotel enough from the glorious decor to the wonderfully friendly, helpful and attentive team of professionals who work here to make your every moment as relaxing and enjoyable as humanly possible.
From the welcome glass of champagne at check in to the delicious complimentary range of food offered at various times of the day, Hotel 41 try to make you feel at home (if you lived in such a beautiful place!) and with all the effort put in by the fabulous team they certainly succeed! We couldn’t dream of living a real everyday life like this although I’m sure some of their guests are this lucky but the main reason it works so well is how unpretentious it is - everyone is treated with equal importance and in such a friendly way that it really makes your visit an absolute joy!
We love it! Enough said!!

Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic - says it all. This hotel goes above and beyond. Cannot recommend this hotel enough for service, attention to detail, comfort and style. The hotel went out of its way to make our stay for birthday celebrations so special. A particular mention to Andrew & Steven for their attentiveness and enjoyable company. I particularly liked my hot water bottle in my bed when we arrived back from the theatre -little touches like these make this such a stand out hotel. Thank you again everyone at hotel 41.
