Hotel 41

From jogging through royal parks to wholesome breakfast spreads and a supremely restful night’s sleep, your health and fitness goals can still be maintained whilst travelling. Guests at Hotel 41 have plenty of ways to stay fit and healthy when staying at the hotel, including an ingenious sports buddies scheme. Make the most of your trip and stay fit and healthy simultaneously with these 10 easy tips.

 Drink Up

 Drinking enough water on a daily basis is a cornerstone of good health, but it’s especially important for those subjecting their bodies to long haul flights and travel.  Be sure to keep hydrated en route to your destination and, on arrival at Hotel 41, take advantage of the hotel’s supply of Belu water. Packaging its water in both recycled glass and recycled plastic, the company donates all of its profits to WaterAid, meaning guests can have a positive impact whilst also staying healthy.

 Walk Everywhere

 Walking is a wonderfully simple way of keeping fit, and it’s often the best way to explore a new destination too. Hotel 41 is the ideal base for those wishing to discover London on foot thanks to its prime location opposite Buckingham Palace. Many of the city’s most famous sights are within easy walking distance, such as the National Gallery, located on Trafalgar Square, which is a scenic 20-minute walk away.

 Pack Your Trainers

 The adage ‘fail to prepare, prepare to fail’ can certainly be applied to staying fit and healthy when travelling. Remembering to pack comfortable and breathable clothing as well as a decent pair of trainers will encourage you to stay active whilst away from home.

 Make Use of Fitness Facilities

 Hotel 41 offers complimentary gym access to all its guests at the H2 Victoria gym, a two-minute walk away. Book one of the venue’s excellent gym classes, which range from strength circuits and boxercise to Pilates and yoga.

 The Most Important Meal of the day

 Set yourself up for the day in the best way possible with a healthy and hearty breakfast. Breakfast like a king in the Executive Lounge at Hotel 41, where the morning spread includes fresh fruit, granola and homemade yoghurt pots alongside poached eggs with crushed avocado. Accompany this with your choice of freshly squeezed juice or daily signature smoothie.

 Sports Buddies

 A clever idea that helps guests keep active and enjoy their favourite sports whilst travelling, Hotel 41’s management team offer themselves as sports buddies on request. Whether you’re looking for a tennis partner, a yoga buddy or would like someone to accompany you horse riding, each staff member has chosen their preferred activity and is delighted to buddy up.

Jogging Trails

 With St James’s Park and Green Park located close by, jogging fans staying at Hotel 41 will be spoilt for choice. Before you lace up your running shoes, ask the concierge for one of the hotel’s helpful jogging maps.

 Snack Smart

 Sightseeing can be a hungry business, so keeping energy levels up with sensible snacks is a must. The all-day selection of complimentary treats provided in the Executive Lounge is a lifesaver for those looking to grab something on the go. Stock up on fresh and dried fruits, alongside nuts and still and sparkling water.

 Sleep Well

 Good rest is the key to maintaining a healthy body and mind. Fortunately, the supremely comfortable rooms at Hotel 41 are designed with guests’ wellbeing in mind. Sink into Savoir beds and superior quality bed linens; there’s also a feather duvet and pillow selection to accommodate every possible preference.


The most important tip for travellers wanting to stay fit and healthy whilst away is relaxation. Stress can lead to increased cortisol levels, which have a negative impact on your health and wellbeing. To avoid this, try to savour each moment of your trip and allow the skilled and attentive team at Hotel 41 to take care of you.

Health conscious guests can make use of complimentary gym access, the sports buddies scheme and much more at Hotel 41.
