Certificate of Excellence
The Zetter Hotel has 59 bedrooms including 7 rooftop studios all with a private outdoor terrace. Located in fashionable Clerkenwell, the hotel is a perfect destination for those looking for hotels with style, comfort and bags of personality. Built by eco-conscious hoteliers, the hotel uses energy-saving technology and eco-friendly materials wherever possible. This approach also includes water pumped from the hotel's own 1500-foot bore-hole beneath the building which not only helps make the building self sustaining but also supplies The Zetter's bottled spring water that is served in the restaurant and rooms. Head Chef Ben Boeynaems has a light and contemporary approach to food at The Zetter and across the cobbles is award-winning Cocktail Lounge at sister hotel The Zetter Townhouse. Explore the surroundings on Brompton bicycles which guests can hire from the hotel free of charge.

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.

Fantastic stay in one of the Rooftop Studio Deluxe rooms. Spacious comfortable room, the bath outside was great even in January. The taster meal in the evening, and breakfast were lovely. Staff were all friendly, great feel to the hotel.

Down for a family event, part of which was high tea for twenty at the adjoining Zetter Townhouse. I’m a wheel chair user. Doors automatic, lift large enough, rooms spacious enough. Wet room, shower chair provided. Bed huge and very comfortable. I wasn’t told the lift stopped

Really enjoyed staying at the Zetter Hotel. Small but nice rooms with great bathroom. Lovely bar area and just across the way from The Zetter Town House which is a cracking spot for drinks or cocktails. Very quirky decor and great atmosphere. Pricey rooms for the location

Great hotel in good location - fun contemporary rooms - choose a high room with balcony for some great views over London, also perfect cocktails in the Zetter Townhouse cocktail bar just behind, where the artistic décor and amazing cocktails will keep you happy all night!

Thankyou for sharing your review, which has been a delight to read. I am delighted that you stayed in one of our newly refurbished rooftop rooms, they do provide great views as you say. And then there's the cocktails!.. delighted that you enjoyed them, the 20 steps across the cobbles to the townhouse is definitely worth it, we do keep our cocktail selection updated, the bar staff themselves create some amazing drinks that go on our menus, this is what makes us so different, and keeps us amazing! we look forward to seeing you again very soon Many Thanks for the review

Hi David, We are delighted to hear that you will be joining us at The Zetter Hotel for 3 nights at the end of the month. Here at the hotel, we have The Zetter Bar & Lounge, of which serves food throughout the day. For breakfast, we offer continental breakfast as well as hot breakfast items and our all day dining menu has a wide selection on offer, from light nibbles to hearty supper bowls. We do have a small terrace available where you can dine if the weather allows but this is allocated on a first come first serve basis. Bookings are not necessary but please do give our reservations team a call on 0207 324 4567 if you would like to make one. They can also send over copies of the menus we have available if you wish and assist with any further requests that you may have. Unfortunately we do not provide take away packed lunches I'm afraid. Once again, thank you for choosing to stay at The Zetter and we look forward to welcoming you on the 21st. Best wishes, Jason

Hi Charr28, Here at the hotel we have the The Zetter Bar & Lounge and a couple of steps away, at our sister property, The Zetter Townhouse, is our award winning cocktail lounge- both of which I would highly recommend sampling! If you would like to get out and explore, The Zetter Hotel is located in Clerkenwell, where you are spoilt for choice in terms of excellent restaurants and bars. The team would be more than happy to recommend some places to try should you choose to stay with us and will be happy to make reservations for you. Clerkenwell itself is also very well located and you can easily access Central London by bus or tube. I do hope this answers your question and I do hope that we will be welcoming you to The Zetter Hotel in the near future. Kind regards, Jason

Dear Hayley, Unfortunately we do not have any parking facilities here at the hotel, but there is an NCP located a 5-10 minute walk away. This is located on Saffron Hill, EC1N 8XA, with a 24 hour stay costing from £22.50, I hope this helps and I do hope that we will be welcoming you to the Zetter in the near future. Best wishes, Jason

Hi Jérémy, Thanks for getting in touch and I'm happy to say, it's all good news. Yes, it's absolutely fine to arrive early and drop your bags and all of our rooms have excellent rain-dance showers. Finally, we are just 1 stop by either tube or train from St Pancras/Kings Cross or a 10 minute taxi, if you prefer. I hope we can help you celebrate your anniversary and welcome you to The Zetter very soon.
