Editorial review:

The Zetter hotel, which was once a warehouse in Little Italy, has been transformed into a trendy oasis, mixing the comforts of home (hot water bottles on top of the covers) with high-tech comforts like large flat screen TVs.

Verified Reviews:

  • Breakfast is way too expensive - Will stay in the hotel again - Tube station is 5 or 6 minutes walk away
  • Really nice boutique hotel - Big rooms - Comfy bed - Free wireless internet - Service and atmosphere was great
  • Room was small but clean - Good view - Modern bathroom and ultra-cool shower - Restaurant is good but a bit overpriced
  • Decent sized room - Fantastic shower - Cool location - Lots of street noise - Inattentive (bordering on incompetant) staff
  • Hotel has plenty of energy and charm - Good restaurant - Rooms are funky modern, but also comfortable

                8.8

                We loved the location in Clerkenwell and the modern decor in the hotel. We had one of the rooms on the top floor with a balcony, so the room had plenty of natural light and it was quiet. The hotel staff were all very nice and attentive without being obsequious. It is an easy walk to many interesting places in London. I would stay here again.

                No issues about the stay, but my my, London is not cheap and neither is this hotel, though I don't get the impression its prices are much out of line vs the competition. I am tall, and the size of the spaces inside are not generous, but again, this is London...

                7.0

                It is a pleasant hotel with friendly staff.

                Rooms are small (but well-designed). Given the size of the rooms, I find the nightly rate quite high. That is not unique in London, though.

              • Single
                9.2

                Very swish boutique hotel, friendly staff and very well laid out rooms. Excellent restaurant.

                Toilet wouldn't flush but was fixed very promptly.

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                Fantastic boutique styled hotel. Really swanky and smart looking. Really decent facilities available, and fresh coffee as complimetary was a brilliant catch, :) Pleasent stay all round, with a refreshing rain shower to wake you up in the morning, :)

                9.2

                I found the Zetter easy-going, genuine and efficient, and enjoyed it greatly

                Room dining menu is quite limited

              • Family with children
                9.6

                It was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed. It is really clean, well equipped, very convenient in every aspects including getting coffee, tea, and absolutely very strong conditioned free wi-fi. The hottest thing was very fresh lemon smelled shampoo, conditioner and bath soap.

                Good location and friendly staff.

                It was too expensive given the small size of the rooms.
