41 Buckingham Palace Road , Victoria , LONDON SW1W 0PS , United Kingdom
“41”, overlooking the Royal Mews behind Buckingham Palace, is a discreet and intimate hideaway that has the relaxed feel of an exclusive private club.
Leafy St James's Park and Green Park are just beyond the palace, while a pleasant stroll takes you to Westminster Abbey, Downing Street and the Houses of Parliament. Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, and the theatres of London's West End are also conveniently close by. The finest shopping districts, including Regent Street, Bond Street, Covent Garden, and the area from Sloane Square towards Knightsbridge, are just a short hop in a taxi.
Guests feel a million miles from the hustle and bustle – this is a delightfully secret escape combining informal luxury with round-the-clock personal service. Staff outnumber guests two to one and they don’t just know your name – they remember your favourite drink, your regular newspaper and your preferred choice of room.
The chic black and white décor is strikingly elegant, while the cosy wood-panelled lounge, with its leather armchairs and roaring open fire, is instantly welcoming.
The black and white theme extends to all 30 rooms and suites, yet no two are alike. Each casts its own distinctive spell, created with rich mahogany furniture, fine fabrics and extravagant flourishes. Fresh fruit and flowers, delicious snacks and treats, scented candles – these thoughtful touches all add to the magic. Discreet technology abounds – iPod docking stations, interactive TV with movies on demand, complimentary high-speed internet, radio, and CD player; fax machines/copiers that double as printers for your laptop.
Guests enjoy round-the-clock informal and personalised dining in the glass roofed Executive lounge, or the Mezzanine above – it’s the perfect setting for a sunlit breakfast or afternoon tea.
However, those who prefer their own company can also dine in their own room or suite. Canapés are served in the Executive Lounge each evening, while there’s the irresistible invitation to plunder the pantry - from 8.30pm onwards guests can indulge themselves with the tempting range of complimentary snacks and light bites in the well-stocked fridges of the Executive Lounge.
More formal dining is available in the award winning Library Restaurant at our neighbouring hotel, The Rubens, while our trendy bbar offers inventive cocktails and exciting South African-themed cuisine. The Cavalry Bar at the Rubens provides a more traditional setting for a relaxed beer, while fine champagnes and light snacks are also served in the intimate safari-chic Leopard Champagne Bar.
Guests can make use of the hotel’s partnership with the nearby LA Fitness Spa and Health Club. Staff will also arrange for a range of beauty and relaxation specialists to visit you in your room - therapies include massage, facials and nail treatments
“41” is a firm favourite with families, offering a full range of children’s menus, bathrobes and slippers, personalised welcome gifts and a child minding service. There’s even a pet concierge and facilities to ensure that guest’s four legged friends are thoroughly spoiled.
No wonder “41” was voted the Top Hotel in the UK by TripAdvisor® 2011 Travellers' Choice® Awards.
