Comfortable bed, good rooms, if you struggle with stairs no lifts ( at least that we found) so avoid 2nd floor. Lumpy room rates when you consider there is no real bar , no restaurant and a very limited breakfast offering

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a

you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
