If you’re looking for character, you couldn’t do much better than the Zetter Townhouse. Situated in a converted Victorian Warehouse in Clerkenwell, the hotel is ideally located near Farringdon station so is a great jumping off point for exploring both East London and the West End. It’s won an armful of awards, is full of personality and there’s no eco-guilt, as it is renowned for its environmentally friendly credentials.

Walk into the downstairs cafe lobby and you’ll trip over endless freelancers using the hotel as a meeting/working space thanks to its wholesome coffee, free Wi-fi and easy-going approach. Once upstairs rooms are industrial meets minimalist and they do what they say on the tin – from shoebox to roomy. Some have been designed by Henry Holland and you get what you pay for.

While Rosewood is an international luxury brand, this Central London hotel definitely feels boutique. Walk in through the grand courtyard and find yourself in a calm oasis in zone 1. There are just 44 suites here but the Edwardian hotel feels much larger, with grand drawing rooms for coffee, afternoon tea and meetings.

Guests are always wowed by the Rookery’s stylish and characterful bathrooms. But if you can bring yourself to step out of the tub, dry off and head outside, you’ll find an array of fantastic restaurants in this stylish area of London. Rooms are all unique and have their own individual character, such as the Mary Lane, with its low beamed ceiling and ruby red theme, and the Rook’s nest with its intricately carved bed and Edwardian bathing machine. New delights to be found with each stay and having stayed once, you will be back.
