We picked this hotel because it's next to our son's university accommodation. What a surprise! This hotel is clean, beautiful, spacious, full of characters and close to Barbican Centre car park (£18/weekend) and tube stations (Farrington and Barbican) Staff are friendly and helpful. We went to Smiths of Smithfield (Masterchef John Torode) for breakfast. Got to try the hotel breakfast... More

We stayed here a week for my granddaughters wedding. They live in Clerkenwell and we wanted to be within walking distance of there home. This wonderfully quaint hotel full of antiques was just the ticket. Surrounded by lovely restaurants and cafes; steps from the meat market and historical squares, I could not have asked for more. Except for the Palace... More

We recently spent a weekend at The Rookery for a 30th birthday treat for my partner. After checking in I noticed that an additional £505 pounds had been taken from my current account as well as £505 off my credit card. The hotel admitted their mistake but told me they wouldn't be able to return the money to my account... More

We stayed at the Rookery for two nights in september. It was probably the best hotel stay I have ever had. Breakfast, always served in bed, was amazing. The hotel was so cozy and beautiful and the service was outstanding. When returning to London there is no where else that I will stay in the future.

Everyone knows that the word "interesting" is dangerous in the mouth of an Englishman. Well, we found this place interesting in the real sense of the word. It had earlier piqued my interest from the outside (a fine, genuinely old, building which had been brought back to life very sensitively). Our night there did not disappoint: the bedroom was unlike... More

Brilliantly comfortable stay from start to finish. Staff are absolutely amazing. We loved the bacon sandwich, grapefruit juice for breakfast and the honesty bar. Would have liked to be able to stand up and have a proper shower but we also loved the tub so not complaining ;-) Can't wait to return!

The area is a gem, very quiet but 5 minutes from Farringdon tube and station. The staff were brilliant, very helpful. Room was quite small but this is normal in London. It had all amenities that you would require, great mini bar, TV, air con, dvd player etc. Rooms were clean with beautiful period details. Loved the hotel and staff... More

Excellent boutique hotel in a great position near Farringdon station . Great room (Thomas Percy) clean and spacious, staff very friendly and attentive. Lots of places to eat around . Minor gripe no tea/coffee facilities in room I'm afraid. Would definitely recommend

My wife and I stayed at the Rookery for a weekend trip to London. The 18th century interiors are just as they appear on the website and even better up close. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had a couple special requests for my wife's birthday and they did a great job (thank you!). If you are flying... More

We visited the hotel for one night. Felt very welcome straight away. The decor was magnificent. It felt like we were transported back 200 years. Great for a romantic get away thats only 10 minutes away from St Paul's . Central but it felt like you wasn't in London. Breakfast wasn't as great as we would have liked, but the... More

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighborhood Profile
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 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.
