Stayed one night - would recommend as quirky yet all that you need. Honesty bar - haven’t seen that in ages! Service attentive and even the hotel cat is a character. Will return no doubt next time back in London

The Rookery is a fine boutique hotel where one can enjoy traditional, generously sized rooms and intimate commons areas complete with a lovely outdoor patio space. Nice offerings include a nook to write notes on card stock with custom branded pencils, delicious cake (under a glass cover) to enjoy with your afternoon cocktails, and friendly, helpful staff. We enjoyed the traditional claw foot tub and luxurious towels and robes.
The location is ideal for exploring with many nearby amenities including a 24 hr. restaurant, tube station, shops and pubs. Be sure to read the history of the building - very interesting indeed.

Stunning building but no full English
Reviewed 1 week ago

Beautiful hotel in a fantastic location near Farringdon tube station. The place was a little difficult to locate as the entrance is hidden down a lane way. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the place itself is stunning I was disappointed I didn’t get to use the bar and the library as both had real fires.
The bathroom is rather oddly designed and it seems impossible not to soak the floor when trying to shower in an old style bath. This Mus the irritating for housekeeping surely there is a solution. Great mini bar and lovely selection of wines but disappointed that there was no full English for breakfast.

Quirky Hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I stayed at the Rookery for just one night.
My room was on the third floor and there is no lift as it is a very old building it seems they can't fit one in.
The room was ok in size ,the bathroom, however, needed some getting used to as the toilet was up three stairs...
The water tap in the sink was so close to the edges of the washbasin that you couldn't hold your hand under the running water which was quite annoying. The shower was a bit narrow and there was nothing where you could put your soap or shampoo bottle and you couldn't bend down to the floor as it was too narrow to do so. Because of this very limited space in the shower you can't regulate the water temperature without either being burnt by hot water or getting a cold shock depending on which tap you decide to open first as you can't avoid the water stream. There is certainly room for improvement. I was told all rooms are different so there might be better ones and I was just unlucky...
Staff at reception were very friendly and helpful.
I didn't stay for breakfast as you have to decide the night before when you want it and also what you want and I found this a bit impractical.

Nice rooms , good location, shame about lack of facilities

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
