... their tonges which is used to make the bugs stick. So very cool but, I was happy to give my hands a good wash afterwards.
The best part of the day had arrived – we got to feed the meerkats. As many of you may know I’m bonkers about these guys – maybe a little too obsessed but I don’t care they are the BEST. They ...

We are sad to say goodbye to everyone and Londontown as we never know when we will be back; but farewell great city and thanks to everyone for making it such a fantastic extended visit, you will all be missed. When we finally re-enter the real world you are welcome to stay in our spare room (if we have one)
... theater! We collected our tickets from the box office and then found this cute little curry house and had yummy curries for dinner. We then went to Lyceum Theatre to see the Lion King! Neither of us have ever seen anything quite like it - it was truly magical and so amazing!!! Today was a lot colder but we still haven't seen a spot of rain so we've been very blesed! Off to bed now, we'll be up early for a day tour out of London tomorrow! ...
... am sure! Very exciting... One of the best things about the new centre is that it is situated much further from the streets than the current site, which actually is literally on the 'high street'. This distance from the streets will mean that the children are less tempted to return to their histories, and it will also be harder for them to sneak off unnoticed. Thus preventing or diminishing the frequency of situations such as that of poor Brian or James at the ...
... instructions, especially when it comes to food. So we did, and after two minutes when we broke up the crust and distributed it we revealed two beautifully steamed oysters ready to be gobbled up. This was one of the best things we ate the entire time we were in London. It was gorgeously simple, just braised beef, Guinness, onions so soft they melted like butter, and the oysters. Nothing more, nothing less. The wine paired equally well with this dish as it did with the oysters, and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel 41 London
Aug/Sept 2003- My husband and I wanted to splurge a little as we had celebrated our 25th anniversary while getting our 2 kids settled at their respective colleges. We decided on a trip to London. I did a little surfing on the internet and kept pulling up "41" with key words such as "romantic, location, service, etc." I have stayed at many Ritz Carlton and Four Season Hotels and I must say, "41" was exceptional! We arrived at 7:30 am, were met at the enterance by a wonderful gentleman who relieved us of our luggage and led us to a warm and comfortable sitting area. We were offered breakfast immediately while they checked us in. We were in our room within a 1/2 an hour. The staff was exceptional, room and bed were wonderful, location wonderful. The staff all addressed us by name, asked how our day had been and enquired about future plans and if they could help us plan. They offered suggestions for dining and other activities and made arrangements for us when we requested. "41" is within 2 blocks of Victoria Station, the Gateway to London! My husband was having difficulty with allergies, the staff was quite concerned even going as far as having their trademark (beautiful) orchids removed from our room in case they were the culprit. We had internet access in our room, which was wonderful, as we could check in with our kids and other family members without incurring long distance charges. When I travel in the future, I hope I am fortunate enough to find a hotel as wonderful as "41".
Our five night stay was perfect. The staff at the 41 were exceptionally helpful and friendly from the moment we showed up -- 8:00 a.m. after an overnight flight from Detroit Metro to Heathrow -- insisting that we have breakfast and coffee and making sure we were quickly checked into our room for a shower and a nap. Our room was very quiet and the twice daily maid service w/evening turn down was a nice touch. The bed and bed linens and the bathroom all rate high marks -- VERY NICE indeed.
I first made reservations at the Rubens because of this website, but wanted a bigger accommodation and was so charmed by my phone conversation with Chantal Morand, the Manager, that I changed my booking to the 41.
I traveling frequently to London on business and have stayed at many hotels, but I always go back to the 41 for several reasons. Small, luxurious, private hotel which feels like a private club. Responsive staff who go the extra mile to know you and your needs. Comfortable, well appointed rooms with in-room computer system. No need to bring your laptop. I can check my e-mail, surf the internet, work on documents, print or fax them--all from my bed. THe lounge is inviting and well stocked with drinks, snacks, sandwiches, fruits etc. Before going to my room at the end of the day, I always stop in the lounge for a drink. The one minor drawback is the 41 is not conducive for meetings. They do have a state-of-the-art meeting room for guests to use, but there really isn't come meet me at my hotel kind of place.
Good but not perfect
I have just stayed at No 41. The staff are excellent, the rooms classy, the beds wonderful and the food good. I would have given it five stars except for a few little niggles which shouldn't happen in such an up-market hotel. In my room (08, rather small for a double) only one of the four speakers for the television seemed to work, the mouse for the internet wouldn't move properly and the air conditioning was extraordinarily noisy. Relatives who stayed in another room couldn't sleep because of constant noise from rooms above.
Overall a very good hotel which I would stay at again but they do need to watch out for some of the little things.
Quirky and First Class
I have stayed at hotels all over London, and I can say that this hotel is absolutely the best. It does not have all the ammenities of a large hotel, but the rooms are fantastic and the service is great. I highly recommend this hotel!
The perfect escape
This place is great - very comfortable, private and really affords a great escape from the crowds on the streets. It is no longer all inclusive, but they do provide little extras and the breakfast is great. Highly Highly recommend staying here if you can. Definitely better than any of the other larger luxury hotels in London.
Stayed just after 9/11
We stayed at "41" just after 9/11. London was almost empty but we had a great time due to the wonderful staff at "41". Back then everything was included in your stay. I mean everything. Food, Drinks and more. But now, they do things differently and I am sure it is due to the cutbacks many hotels have had to make. Too bad because the way it was before was much better than it is now. Several of our friends have stayed there within past 6 months and said it was nothing like before. It is a great hotel and you will feel like you get your moneys worth. Great location and food was good.
If you'll be visiting London, RUN - do not walk - to reserve a room at the 41. Never in my life have I so thoroughly enjoyed a hotel stay.Somehow, they do everything right. It is luxurious and extremely comfortable, yet not at all intimidating. The staff are unobtrusive and professional as can be with zero attitude. Rooms are amazingly clean, beautiful, and chock full of amenities. And the BEDS! Oh my goodness. A hotel review I read before our trip stated that the beds were handmade at a cost of $4000 apiece, and after sleeping on one I believe it. Heavenly! We stayed there for several nights and never once saw or heard another guest. It was just like living in our own little flat in the heart of the city, but with the added bonus of great room service.And in case you should ever want to leave your comfy, relaxing hotel room to explore London, the location is great to boot. Victoria tube station is a couple of minutes in one direction - walk the other direction for a couple of minutes and you'll be standing right in front of Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park.I would move in there if they'd let me. It was fabulous; I cannot recommend the 41 more highly.
One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at -- the staff was very friendly & the rooms are amazing. We were travelling with our 14 month old son, and were afraid we'd be turned off by a snobby atmosphere. Just the opposite! They were very kind & went out of their way to make us feel at home. I'd go back in a second.
