When a hotel employs twice as many staff as its guests, you know that you’re in for some seriously personalised service. The utterly charming 41 Hotel is one of our favourites boutique hotels in London, where you’ll feel like you’re being welcomed into a warm and inviting friend’s home (and a rather luxurious one at that). Tucked away on the 5th floor of the Rueben’s hotel, the decor is reminiscent of a traditional London gentleman’s club with sumptuous burgundy leather Chesterfield sofas, oak-paneled walls and plush furnishings. The highly professional service team won’t only know your name, but will also be able to recall your favourite newspaper, how you like your coffee each morning, and will even remember your favourite room for your next stay. You’ll find thoughtful touches at every turn, including a sinful selection of daily sweets and homemade baked goods, a candlelit bath waiting for you in the evenings, and a pet concierge to take care of your pets while you’re out hitting the town. You may even be lucky enough to spot Queen Elizabeth and her faithful corgies who live just across the road in Buckingham Palace.
