    Wanting to make the most out of our stay in London, we booked three nights in Kensington and four nights in Clerkenwell, a somewhat rougher part of London. The Rookery Hotel in Clerkenwell was well located, close to Farringdon tube station, but we hadn’t realised...More

    Supposedly rich in history, the Rookery leans left of functionality in favor of its own legacy. A bit off the path for sightseeing, rooms lack incidentals necessary of hotel rooms in 2017, and the bathrooms (although very provincial) are dysfunctional. No elevators, no coffee convenient....More

    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

    Not far at all. If you Google map it you will get precise directions. Hope this helps.

    I suggest you ask the hotel. It´s not a lot of parking available in the area.

    I don' think the hotel has a designated parking area, but I am sure you can check on the internet for parking garages in the area (Smithfield Market). Of course the parking may cost more than the room!
