We chose room 319 on the third floor of the Zetter Hotel, which overlooked the Zetter Townhouse.
The room was smaller than we imagined from the hotel's Website. We had twin beds a seating area and a shower room for our weekend stay in London.
The beds were high-up and rather narrow but were very comfortable, given a good night's sleep.
The shower room was adequate with all that you could need for your stay.
However, there were a few niggles from my perspective. The shower room door did not lock. But, if you weren't in the bedroom, you must be in the toilet/shower room, so no problems with entering unannounced whilst on the toilet!
The air-conditioning would not drop below 19ºC - too hot really and the fans were too "noisy" to sleep with whilst on. You couldn't sleep with the full-length windows (protected with a railing to form a kind of balcony) because the noise of Clerkenwell would have been too loud. With all the windows closed, it was nice and quiet.
Some lights did not work (or in three days of trying, we couldn't get them to work) - the ones above the beds and the strip light above the full-length mirror in the hallway.
The "wardrobe" was laughable. There were two of us and we had to use the three coat hooks in the hall to hang pour cloths there because the "wardrobe" was good for a couple or shirts or a suit or a couple of dresses and that would be it.
The staff were really first class and very helpful.
Breakfast was served in the adjoining bistro and was excellent, as was the bar and service.
If I stayed again, I would stay in the best rooms at the top of the hotel.
Having said that, if I was staying by myself, it would have been absolutely no problem. Room 319 was effectively a single room in my view.
My daughter and her new husband stayed in the Zetter Townhouse across the yard and had the first floor suite, which was amazing (see photos).
