Travellers' Choice
The Zetter Hotel has 59 bedrooms including 7 rooftop studios all with a private outdoor terrace. Located in fashionable Clerkenwell, the hotel is a perfect destination for those looking for hotels with style, comfort and bags of personality. Built by eco-conscious hoteliers, the hotel uses energy-saving technology and eco-friendly materials wherever possible. This approach also includes water pumped from the hotel's own 1500-foot bore-hole beneath the building which not only helps make the building self sustaining but also supplies The Zetter's bottled spring water that is served in the restaurant and rooms. Head Chef Ben Boeynaems has a light and contemporary approach to food at The Zetter and across the cobbles is award-winning Cocktail Lounge at sister hotel The Zetter Townhouse. Explore the surroundings on Brompton bicycles which guests can hire from the hotel free of charge.

The Zetter Hotel is marvelous in all ways, set on a quiet square in the middle of clerkenwell, it’s convenient to everything and an oasis of peace when you get home from a day of meetings. The staff is fantastic: kind, welcoming and they go out of their way to address your every need. Rooms are elegant and comfortable and the breakfast is fresh, tasty and generous. After staying for a week for business, I will definitely be a repeat customer!

We needed reasonably good accommodation close to Charterhouse Sq.for a Barts Doctors 50th reunion and The Zetter was perfect. It provided well priced comfortable rooms, with brilliant beverage facilities. We ate out but the breakfast menu was wide ranging and the berry and pancake stack worth returning for. The staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly at all times.

Avoid at all costs, our room non descriptive; not clean , bed so uncomfortable, the water in shower was boiling with little movement on the adjustable button to regulate temperature.( beware if you have children or are elderly) Breakfast a disaster, our table was dirty , no cutlery, napkins extra Not greeted by a member of staff and when we asked where to sit where told anywhere, not lead to a table . Waited over a hour for food to arrive and when it did the order was wrong . At this point we walked as did a number of guests. If you can’t get the basics right for bed and breakfast there is no hope !!!

The Zetter is tasteful, clean and quiet with friendly and polite staff in a good area for casual restaurants/bars. The rooms have a selection of paperbacks which is a nice touch and the Pantry in the hallway is a great idea (with coffee machine, tea, biscuits, refrigerated water bottles and fruit)
