I'll be honest with you, it has been a couple of weeks since I stayed at this hotel and it wasn't until last night that I found these photos that I had completely forgotten about! I'd forgotten how much I had fallen in love with Hotel 41, and I just had to share it with you... Better late than never!
Having had lots of meetings in London recently, I have found myself staying in London much more frequently than usual. I'm not a huge fan of staying in hotels, mainly because I hate having all of my belongings stuffed into a bag or suitcase. The second I walk through the door of the bedroom of a hotel I immediately unpack my things as if it's my new home. Well I suppose it is, for a day or two at least!
Marcus and I realised we needed to stay in central London for the night so found this place last minute (by last minute, I mean while we were on the train on our way there!) and got ourselves an amazing deal on it.
I'd never heard of Hotel 41, and neither did the taxi driver that took us there - that's a first for London! After circling the block, we eventually spotted a grand door that camouflaged into its surroundings, making it hard to find. We were welcomed by the receptionist, who called down the host to show us around the boutique hotel. We got in the lift to go upstairs - there's only two floors, the ground floor and the fifth floor where there are a limited number of rooms. I'd like to know what happened to floors 2-4? Another secret hotel maybe!
It was a totally personalised experience having someone show us around the hotel including taking us to the room and lighting a candle in the bathroom for us and presenting us with a bowl of fruit. You know by now that nothing makes me happier than fruit!

Breakfast in bed is such a luxury. Tucked up in bed wrapped in a soft dressing gown under the duvet, with a tray on my lap of muesli, almond milk and tea was just perfection.
