World's First Micro Boutique Hotel in East London

Favorite
Share
The house was built in 1717, making it one of the oldest privately owned properties in London. It has a very glamorous history. For more than a decade, it was one of the UK's most popular fashion and celebrity locations, playing host to hundreds of major advertising campaigns and high profile editorial shoots. So many photographers, stylists and models kept asking if they could stay here that we came up with the idea of '40 Winks'. We opened our doors in 2009, somewhat cheekily describing ourselves as the world’s first ‘micro boutique hotel’ (we only have two guest rooms). Despite our bijou size, we have achieved an almost mythical status over the last twelve years, attracting thousands of pages of press, winning several awards, and, most importantly, making a lot of people very happy. We still regularly have photographic shoots here, and are always happy to assist with any enquiries about location hire. Alternatively, if you are just looking for an amazing place to stay, we can assist with that too. The house is situated in East London, close to bustling Shoreditch and Spitalfields.
