This is a great place to go if you are a couple and want something London with some history and character. Dark room with amazingly comfortable four poster bed. Bathroom downstairs with clawfoot bath and amazing shower. Very quiet and good location.

The staff was 1st class. They were helpful and friendly! We enjoyed the living area and the honesty bar. Miss Gray the cat was very sweet and made us miss our kitties back home. It was a beautiful room and of course we both enjoyed the claw foot tub!!! We would definitely stay again when we return to London. Very... More

We are native Londoners who fancied a night away from home - my husband cleverly booked the Rookery, remembering I've been intrigued by it since I worked in the area a few years ago. It didn't disappoint, with atmospheric spaces and a darkly romantic ambience. I would recommend for travellers wishing to experience a London stay with more character than... More

Fascinating 18th century hotel with period paintings and furnishings. Quiet street with a pleasant courtyard garden close to Farringdon. Friendly atmosphere, great property for soaking up the ambience of the rapidly vanishing ghosts of London's past. Comfortable and homely.

What an amazing hotel! A hidden gem tucked away just up from Faringdon station. It's so quiet there as it's up a side street and so pretty and quirky. The service was exceptional from arrival to departure and the staff could not do enough for us. We felt really spoilt. Loved the honesty bar and cute lounge and our bedroom... More

Stayed the night in The Rook's Nest with my husband. What a glorious room, with a Victorian bath and an upstairs living room. Spent the night and wished we were staying for longer. Staff were great and breakfast fantastic.

This charming hotel is tucked away in a little side street and not typical of a city hotel. The attention to detail and customer service is excellent .We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff. Our room was spacious and very comfortable and the sound insulation within the hotel was very good. Sadly the street noise was... More

We stayed here for a night midweek. The staff were great throughout from check in to check out they could not do enough for us.

The Rookery is a very charming, quaint hotel in what now is a respectable neighborhood, but the area wasn't always that way. It was outside the city walls in a lawless section populated by thieves, robbers, prostitutes, murderers and mountebanks. To its credit the Rookery has named its rooms after these neighborhood citizens. I told you this place was long... 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.
