40 Winks Guest House
Could this be the most fashionable hotel in London?
LONDON As one of the most sought after addresses in London by the international fashion and design crowd, this hidden gem in the trendy East London district is also one of the most difficult guest houses to book. Acclaimed interior designer David Carter decided to open his opulent private home and offer two sumptuous, stylish ‘home-away-from-home’ guest rooms for rent. Described as an “intoxicating mix of old and new”, this elegant four story Queen Anne townhouse built in 1717 is one of the most stylish boutique hotels we’ve ever seen. Don’t be surprised if a fashion or celebrity shoot is underway while you’re there, or if you see a famous face or two mingling in the lounge room. Expect a creative-heavy crowd of visiting photographers, stylists, art directors, designers and models. Enjoy a little bit of understated opulence and a large dose of quirky style - all at a very affordable price for London. Make sure you book as far in advance as you possibly can as the waiting list tends to be months long.
