Don't expect bellhops or a concierge—come here for the excellent location in one of the most evocative, Dickensian parts of London.


DK Eyewitness

Occupying six Georgian houses and stores... this Dickensian hideaway retains many original features, such as flagstone floors in the hall and ceiling beams in some of the rooms.


Fodor's Tick Choice

An absolutely unique and beautiful 1725 town house, the Rookery is the kind of place where you want to allow quality time to enjoy and soak up the atmosphere. Full review →


Frommer's 34

Quirky, eccentric, and laden with a sense of the antique, the Rookery is a great choice for travelers who want a hotel with the atmosphere of Dickens' or Dr. Johnson's London. Full review →


Gayot 46

To that end, a row of Georgian houses in a narrow lane have been turned into a little gem of a hotel; it is creaky and quaint and feels as if it's been around forever. Full review →


Michelin Guide

A row of charmingly restored 18C houses. Wood panelling, stone-flagged flooring, open fires and antique furniture.


Mr & Mrs Smith

Like its Soho sister, Hazlitt’s, the Rookery hotel's bathrooms have more character than most hotels can hope to boast Full review →

Back in the 18th century, were you to bed down in a rookery, you wouldn’t be sure to wake up.

Not For Tourists

Think wood fires and honour code open bar. Temptation incarnate. Full review →


Rough Guide Tick Star

A delightful little hideaway in trendy Clerkenwell. It’s as charming as can be.


The Telegraph 8.0

A grown-up boutique hotel on a quiet Smithfield lane, with 33 quirky rooms decked out in 18th-century colours, with antiques, glowing wood and modernised mad plumbing. Full review →


Time Out Tick Critics' Choice

Sister hotel to Hazlitt’s, the Rookery has long been something of a celebrity hideaway deep in Clerkenwell. Full review →


Travel + Leisure

With the feel of a private club, this Clerkenwell hotel has period charm (polished woods, fireplaces, patinaed portraits) and yet, is not one bit twee. Full review →
