Free wifi, Aircon, water, tea and coffee. Comfy bed, good bathroom, lovely towels and slippers. We asked for a kettle and it was no trouble - appeared in room in minutes.... More

For our first wedding anniversary my husband booked us a suite for the night. This was a surprise for me, so I had no idea what to expect.

I stayed here with a friend in early July. We chose the hotel because of the building, the design and good reviews. The hotel is the right side of funky. By that I mean the design is funky without being impractical. Although the hotel is on Clerkenwell Road, the area is quiet and I had a good night's sleep. Within... More

Absolutely fantastic, totally amazing, like living in a dream! My daughter chose this hotel (she walks past every day on her way to work) and its location is in a quiet part of London in the Farringdon district, creative and artistic. Outside is a bus stop which whizzed us into the West End for a show on Saturday. We arrived... More

Very disappointed in a £198 per night room. Put a dampener on our weekend away. Positives: quirky hotel with pleasant staff. Fittings are good. Bed is comfy and the bathroom is okay.

Modern and quirky, this place has character in every corner. We had two nights there and thoroughly enjoyed the thought that had gone in to each space. Clean lines. The food was excellent.

Somehow punching above its weight, this is a great hotel! Supremely well designed, the rooms feel much larger and more comfortable than they actually are. Light, well laid out and with more than everything you want. Top quality bedding, robes, a cute coffee/tea station on each floor that always has bottles of water and apples. The staff are endlessly friendly... 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.
