The Experience

This is a deliciously quirky hotel, part 19th-century Viennese coffee house, part 20th-century bohemian dive, part 21st-century gentleman’s club. It sits peacefully on St John’s Square in the epicentre of trendy Clerkenwell, both away from the city and very much a part of it.

A formal London exterior gives way to theatrical interiors. Rooms overflow with beautiful things – one has a four-poster; some are tucked under the eaves. You get rugs on wood floors, cool tunes in the air, and a mirrored cocktail bar where you chat to the barman as he mixes your Negroni. Match your favourite cocktail with tasty bar snacks: scotch eggs, sausage rolls, sharing boards, or skip lunch for a sumptuous afternoon tea instead.

Across the square their sister hotel, has a great evening menu. Walk to the Tate Modern via Millennium Bridge; check out Leather Lane market for some street food. St Pauls and Farringdon Station are close.

The neighbourhood

Clerkenwell is a buzzing neighbourhood packed with trendy eateries, markets, cultural hotspots and a thriving nightlife. It has some nice hidden spots too; take your book to St John’s garden opposite for a quiet read; hop on a boat to Greenwich; while away an afternoon at an exhibition in the Barbican.

Local points of interest from The Zetter Group

  • The nicest way to see the city is by boat and it’s definitely the best way to get to the O2 at Greenwich.
  • If you’re looking for a quiet spot to relax and read a book, the garden of St John opposite The Zetter Hotel & The Zetter Townhouse is the perfect place for some peace and quiet.
  • If you want to have a pint in a traditional pub, The Jerusalem Tavern on Britton Street is designed to look like one of the oldest in London. The building dates back to 1720.
  • The Rio Cinema in Dalston is a little gem and a great place to watch independent films.
  • The walk from the hotel to Tate Modern via the Millennium Bridge is a wonderful way to see this part of London.
  • Postman’s Park near St Paul’s is a really special and peaceful place with a lovely memorial. You might recognise it from the film Closer.
