We only stayed one night (Room 5) and it was rather cold when we arrived, with the heating seeming to struggle to reach a comfortable temperature. This was perhaps due to the windows being only single glazed, and it was only in the middle of...More

We visited the Zetter Townhouse today for some afternoon tea, which we booked in advance. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly by the staff and taken to a table near the fireplace, which had been set up ahead of time. The decor is delightful, full...More

This is a lovely boutique hotel, tucked away in a quiet square off a busy main road. You are five minutes walk from shops, cafes and restaurants and ten minutes from train and tube. The decor is quirky and eccentric, with great attention to detail...More

About
Description
The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell is a 13-bedroom Georgian townhouse with an award-winning cocktail lounge located just on the historic St John's Square. This eclectic property feels more like the private ...More residence of an eccentric (and fabulous!) Great Aunt than a hotel - we like to call her Aunt Wilhelmina! Each of our rooms is completely unique, featuring different, bold shades of heritage colours and vivacious antique pieces. Every corner of the property is crammed full of collectibles, taxidermy and ‘Victoriana’ from Aunt Wilhelmina’s world travels, and as soon as guests enter the light blue front door they feel as if they've stumbled upon something secret and special. The cocktail lounge is a destination in itself. A collaboration between The Zetter Group and Tony Conigliaro (Drinks Factory and 69 Colebrooke Row), each recipe features bespoke ingredients developed and made by the bar team in the lab. Stuffed full of oddities and curios, with an open fire crackling in the grate, the relaxed, sitting room is equally suited to a lazy afternoon indulging on Afternoon Tea as it is a night of uproarious revelry. This unique boutique property is also available to hire exclusively. Less

Clerkenwell
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
