Stayed before and couldn’t wait to stay again, really relaxed with a great restaurant with excellent food.
Antony, gb1 night trip
Very good 8,0
Nice boutique style hotel with everything you need. Free coffee machine on each floor is a nice idea. Rooms are small but quality is high. Expensive stay - and breakfast is an extra. The previous two nights I had stayed at a ' Handpicked' Hotel and had two nights with breakfast in a bigger room for less that 1/2 the price of one night at the Zetter.

Great value and convenience
Great location in central London near Fartingdon station. Hotel employees very helpful. Clean, but small rooms. Would highly recommend for the service quality and value and convenience.

Great hotel, great staff!
The staff were excellent! Nothing was too much for them. Not only were they helpful, cheerful, interested in our plans, but also very efficient.
Marilyn, gb2 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10,0
Comfortable, quirky in a non-touristy neighborhood
Very comfortable hotel with quirky design and colors. Had everything I needed in the room. There is a good coffee machine and many good teas as well as bottled water (all free) set up at a station on each floor. Very friendly and helpful staff. There is an informal vibe but if you need something all you have to do is ask. I would stay again. Carmen, at the front desk, was wonderful and ordered a car for me for my trip back to Heathrow - which was both less expensive than a black cab and very convenient. I was fortunate to have a room facing the back courtyard. I imagine that the rooms facing the street would be noisy as the hotel is not set back from the road.

We stayed in London for a wedding and even though we were before checking in time , the hotel arranged a room for us to change in. Very helpful and even ordered us a cab to the town hall: impressive service
