The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell is a 13-bedroom Georgian townhouse with an award-winning cocktail lounge located just on the historic St John's Square. This eclectic property feels more like the private residence of an eccentric (and fabulous!) Great Aunt than a hotel - we like to call her Aunt Wilhelmina! Each of our rooms is completely unique, featuring different, bold shades of heritage colours and vivacious antique pieces. Every corner of the property is crammed full of collectibles, taxidermy and ‘Victoriana’ from Aunt Wilhelmina’s world travels, and as soon as guests enter the light blue front door they feel as if they've stumbled upon something secret and special. The cocktail lounge is a destination in itself. A collaboration between The Zetter Group and Tony Conigliaro (Drinks Factory and 69 Colebrooke Row), each recipe features bespoke ingredients developed and made by the bar team in the lab. Stuffed full of oddities and curios, with an open fire crackling in the grate, the relaxed, sitting room is equally suited to a lazy afternoon indulging on Afternoon Tea as it is a night of uproarious revelry. This unique boutique property is also available to hire exclusively.

We stayed here for my boyfriend's birthday after visiting the sister hotel to Zetter Townhouse in Marylebone for cocktails a few months prior which was fantastic. Great location with lots of charm - what's not to like?!

This is a truly unique hotel - rather like staying in an elderly relative's residence with quirky and unususal artefacts making up the decor. the staff are very polite, friendly and efficient. We had Room 1 which was very quiet with an extremely comfy bed and a fantastic shower. Breakfast was delicious but be aware that it is cooked at the Zetter Hotel across the square. Overall a very different London Hotel but you'll love it if you're prepared to try something out of the ordinary.

Good evening, Yes it sure is quirky to say the least, so glad you had a good experience with us, we hope to see you again soon. We have a property in Marylebone as well which is a similar style but still has its own character which you may wish to stay in next time if you like the style but fancy a change. Kindest regards, Cameron Bownes Hotel Manager

Relaxing stay - one night only and staff were really very friendly, attentive and helpful. Lovely room and bathroom. Lovely big bath to soak in. Make sure you have one of their cocktails - I recommend The Somerset. Very helpful with our enquiry regarding sourcing the tiles in our bathroom. Helpful advice on good restaurants in the area.
