The Zetter

The service is ‘exceptional’ at this privately owned, contemporary hotel beside St John’s Square. It is managed by Ashley Ely. Guide inspectors in 2015 were impressed: ‘Everything was mint fresh (the first-floor corridor was being painted when we checked in). We were warmly greeted every time we went near reception; help was readily available.’ A small lounge and bar in a central atrium is ‘brightly decorated – lots of well-chosen contemporary art here and in the corridors’. The bedrooms vary considerably in size and price. ‘Our pleasing room had dual-aspect large windows; it was decorated in subtle shades of beige, grey and olive; a zingy orange throw on the bed and two multi-coloured armchairs added splashes of colour. The furniture and lighting were modern and stylish; a compact, well-equipped bathroom.’ Each suite on the rooftop has a private patio. An all-day café/restaurant was launched in 2015 in a dining room with picture windowsd facing the square. The Zetter Townhouse, Clerkenwell (see next entry) is under the same ownership; a Marylebone branch opened in 2015.
  • My husband’s parents stayed. The staff who checked them were exceptionally nice and skilled. They went out of their way to keep us happy. The bedroom was in perfect condition.
