Set behind Buckingham Palace, this luxurious hotel is opposite the Royal Mews. It has striking rooms, attentive 5-star service, and a wood-panelled Executive Lounge with free snacks and canapés from 20:30.
Each black-and-white bedroom has a handmade mattress, air-conditioning and luxury bedding. There are on-demand movies, iPod docks and marble bathrooms with bathrobes and Penhaligon's toiletries.
41 is 500 metres from London Victoria Tube and Train Station. Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and Piccadilly Circus are less than 1 mile away.
The quiet and exclusive 41 hotel feels like a traditional London club. The Executive Lounge has a glass roof for bright breakfasts, afternoon teas and sampling the all-day menu.
