Just across the historic cobbles of St John Square and a mere 21 steps from its sister Zetter Hotel is a traditional 13 bedroom Georgian Townhouse hotel that has us feeling a flush of eccentricity. The Zetter Townhouse is a curious mix of suites, a cocktail lounge and a table tennis games room (of course!), all in an atmosphere that is typical London style savvy - a perfect mix of old and new, parlour mixed with vintage kitsch. Sash windows, drapes, heavy timbers and four poster beds give the distinct air of a place that has been born of yesteryear, but it has been brought right into the noughties with hi tech facilities (think Ipod docks, flat screens and sound systems in the rooms). Located in one of London's most fashionable neighbourhoods, Clerkenwell, The Zetter Townhouse has the ideal position of being on the edge of the city (the West End is a 10 minute taxi ride) and yet it's right in the middle of a buzzing, lively area that is home to some of the city's best restaurants and bars, and a vibrant cultural scene. It certainly offers a unique way to stay and play when in London.
