At a Glance

Everyone has an eccentric ancestor and the Zetter Townhouse, a charming Georgian addition across the cobbles from the original Zetter Hotel in Clerkenwell, is designed with a whacky, globetrotting aunt in mind.

  • Stylish blend of contemporary decor and classic English architecture
  • Convenient location near main shopping streets and Hyde Park
  • Popular cocktail bar for evening drinks and bar snacks


This boutique property, housed in a townhouse on St. John’s Square, is full of antiques, taxidermy and curiosities. Styled by interior designer Russell Page, the 13 rooms, including several apartments, are each unique and bold with eclectic antiques and whimsical touches, like a peek-a-boo hatch in the bathroom. The mini-bar is stocked with cocktails in miniature bottles such as Fleurs de Mal, a perfumery absinthe and rose concoction or Nettle Gimlet or the omnipotent Twinkle, a mix of vodka, elderflower and Champagne.

Sedate by day, the Zetter Townhouse turns lively at night thanks to the Townhouse’s popular cocktail bar, a collaboration between the Zetter and the creators of the award-winning 69 Colebrooke Row. And while the Townhouse doesn’t have its own restaurant, the talented French chef of Bistro Bruno Loubet (across the courtyard at the original Zetter) prepares mouth-watering snacks (think deep-fried anchovy olives with aioli, octopus in ink sauce) and light suppers.

Who Should Stay

Couples who enjoy eclectic design and an intimate, b&b feel.
