Recommend you take time to read about the rooms and then try and get the one you want...we were in the William Blizzard room, a good size and very comfortable, very clean and had all the amenities (but no plug socket for the hairdryer near a mirror....even in chain hotels this is sometimes lacking.) The stay was short, only one... More

Amazingly laid out romantic hotel in a quiet corner of Smithfield, with discreet special service and unusual, comfortable rooms. A good night's sleep and perfectly located for local restaurants and other attractions. Close to Farringdon Tube. Pleasing to see an explanation of the history of the building.

We, and many of the wedding party stayed at the Rookery last Friday and Saturday evening. Our daughter (the bride) and her now husband were upgraded from a suite to the Rookery. The Hotel is brilliant, rooms fantastic and the staff excellent. If you are looking for modern this isn't the place, but it has free WiFi and a lovely... More

We have had the good fortune to stay here on a number of occasions and each time the staff have been excellent in their support no matter what we required. It is an oasis in the thriving city but of course it does have its weaknesses if you are looking for a modern chain hotel! The rooms are different and... More

I stayed in the Rookery for a night but couldn't really take to it. The hotel's charmingly old fashioned, but the room was awkwardly small, there were noises that sounded like there were animals in the walls, and the bathroom didn't have a proper way to shower – and neither having the time not patience for a bath, I half-stood,...

Second time visiting The Rookery in a month. Three nights in total. Really nice boutique hotell with historic Victorian/Harry Potter-ish atmosphere. Friendly, welcoming and helpfull Staff. All rooms are different with its own unique charm. Visit the "honesty bar" for a drink in relaxed atmosphere. Short walk to the Farringdon rail- and subway station. The area has plentyfull of restaurants,... More

Stayed here for the first two days of a three week vacation. We had a beautiful room (the Blizard) with a statue in the bathroom. Our queen size bed was extremely comfortable, and we needed smaller one for the kid, which he called one of the most comfortable ever. Underground, Paul Bakery, and a nice pub were all close by,...

Booked in by the office at the end of a long trip it was a fantastic break from the run of the mill hotels. Tucked away but loads of great restaurants around (I walked across to the Hix Chop Bar where you get a free glass of champagne if you stay in the hotel .... which was nice); the room... More

I stayed at the Rookery for seven nights in mid /late August 2014. It was a bit of a splurge for me, but I wanted a smaller hotel that had a lot of charm. I couldn't have picked a better place to stay in London. My room was on the first floor, but very quiet. It was also a decent... More

I hadn't originally planned on booking here, but things sometimes just fall into place. And what a place! Tucked away with its front door off the main street, conveniently close to the Tube station, situated amongst restaurants and pubs, and staffed with the friendliest, professional staff ... is The Rookery. All that ... AND Lady Grey. Charming, quirky and posh!... More
