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.

Amazing location, amazing staff, amazing room. Everything about The Zetter Townhouse exceeded our expectations. The room was so quirky and comfortable. Really was like staying at your eccentric aunts house.

This is an out of the way, quiet hotel with eccentric decor. Its memorable and perfect place to retreat to away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Sherman is proud to work there and gave us such great info about the neighborhood. Naomi could not be nicer or more accommodating, she had our room ready as early as 9am ! Super comfortable, delicious food and great area to visit all the great parts of the city !

Incredible, best mini weekend stay we have had in London ever. The boutique hotel is in a superb location away from busy streets but close to lots of great areas. The beds are comfortable and the staff and service is top notch. Highly recommend you try (all) their cocktails and get breakfast in bed, the food and drinks are marvellous.

We hired the Dining Room for an Afternoon Tea as part of Hen Weekend. The room itself was filled with a beautiful collection of odditities that created great atmosphere. The afternoon tea itself was delicious, with the classic elements such as scones, finger sandwiches, while also including nibbles reflective of the venue like mint choc chip macaroons! The food was also very accomodating to various allergies within the party. The package also included 2 cocktails that were really light and refreshing. I was definately recommend as a more luxrious afternoon tea option in London.

A great little place with friendly staff who are always willing to help. The cocktail lounge is a great experience. Thursday evenings with the singer transported you to another era. An expensive birthday treat for my wife but one which was well worth the cost and I wouldn't hesitate to do again.
