The Zetter Clerkenwell

Rated 8.7 in 157 reviews. 13 rooms.


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 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.

The Zetter is a quirky Georgian hotel located on a picturesque cobbled square in Clerkenwell, London. With an award-winning cocktail lounge and free WiFi access for all guests, the property also offers complimentary bike hire. A 6-minute stroll from Farringdon Train Station, St. Paul's Cathedral is just a 14-minute walk away.

The Zetter has 13 uniquely-styled, air conditioned bedrooms, which feature a gourmet snack tray, complimentary still and sparkling spring water, tea and coffee making facilities, a flat screen TV and a hairdryer. The en suite bathrooms, some of which have a freestanding bath, offering products from The White Company, a raindance shower, bathrobes and slippers.

The Zetter provides 24-hour room service and has a 24-hour front desk. Other facilities offered at the property include meeting facilities, luggage storage and dry cleaning.

The property is less than a mile from the Barbican Centre and The Gherkin is 1.4 miles away. The British Museum is 23 minutes' walk away.
