40 Winks, Hotel, East London
The decor at 40 Winks has the sort of elegant attention to details that’s only possible in small hotels. It’s opulent without being over the top, with eclectic vintage furniture and treasures and trinkets littering surfaces: a pile of carefully curated books here, an antique lamp there. There are just two impeccably designed bedrooms at this boutique B&B – a single and a double – and they share a bathroom, which has a luxurious roll-top bath in place of a shower. Breakfast is served in the elaborate kitchen where you can chat with the memorable owner who is brimming with insider tips; a rarity in London, a stay here feels truly personal.
