Enjoyed staying here, room was small but nice, bar and restaurant both very good and service was great. I would come back. Close to Farringdon tube stop and a gym that the hotel has a relationship with. I have to write 200 words for some stupid reason, thus the last paragraph

We stayed at The Zetter for our wedding and visited again to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Still as wonderful and friendly as ever. Staff could not do enough for us, rooms clean with great showers and very comfy pillows. A great location to wander around including Exmouth market and Clerkenwell.

The Zetter on Clerkenwell road is a very nice hotel. Rooms are modern and renovated. The service is very good. The restaurant in the building offers a discount for hotel guests and is also very nice. I stay there now once a month in average for my business trips. prices are at the higher end for the location though.

Booked to stay at the Zetter as part of a birthday celebration, chosen due to it's central location a short taxi ride from the theatre district. Staff were beyond helpful at all times and very welcoming. Rooms were well presented, a good size and the hotel as a whole was spotless. Continental breakfast was perfect and good options if you...

It's an easy walk from Farringdon station to The Zetter, a cosy boutique hotel in London's hip inner East. The bijou modern rooms are well appointed with towels, linens, toiletries etc and I especially loved the hot water bottle with knitted kelly green cover! The honesty minibar is not priced at an outrageous mark up which was appreciated. Note that... More

Amazing hotel in a great location - as soon as we arrived we were welcomed by friendly staff who uograded all 4 rooms we had booked as it was my friends 40th birthday weekend. The decor in the hotel, style and cleanliness all led to a brilliant weekend. The location is ideal for a 10 minute walk or short cab... More

Myself and my husband spent 3 nights last weekend at the Zetter Hotel and had a wonderful stay! We've visited London on a number of occasions, but I can safely say, that our stay at The Zetter, was the best hotel experience we've had there to date! There is nothing that I can think of to say that would have... More

Both our rooms were excellent, clean, very comfortable and... More

The Hotel was exceptionally clean and very well appointed in all 3 bedrooms that we stayed in.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighborhood Profile
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.
