Editorial review:

The 33-room hotel The Rookery was built within a row of 18th century Georgian houses and decorated with period furniture, like a museum-piece collection of Victorian baths, showers and toilets. There is a small city garden and the two-story Rock’s Nest Suite.

    loved the room very relaxing and comfortable staff very helpful

    The hotel was beautifully decorated and our room was charming and comfortable. The staff were very well trained and exceptionally polite and welcoming. The history of the hotel and its location is fascinating.

    It would have been nice to have had tea/coffee making facilities in our room for an early morning cup of tea/coffee without having to ring for room service. Most hotels provide this service.

    Wonderful, atmospheric hotel - full of flair and character. Victorian and Georgian decor but with modern levels of comfort and cleanliness. I loved the claw-foot bath and the fact that there was always plenty of hot water available at high pressure. As one with sensitive skin I appreciated the Aveda shower cream and shampoo - a nice touch. There's a quiet drawing-room type bar to relax in and a sweet little garden. A lovely place - a real oasis in the old City of London.

    Lovely room and bathroom.

    It was very noisy at night due to being so near lots of bars and clubs. The plumbing was also very noisy.

    A lovely hotel with a twist, the furniture being from yesteryear. Stunning 4 poster beds with sloping floors. Very grand. Would definately use again!

    Would have liked coffee making facility in room. Just for 1st thing in the morning & last thing at night. Wouldnt stop me from going again, though.

    Lovely feel, l love the location, friendly staff.

    Personally I like a bit more light and space (dark red walls, dark wood in my room), but I can see the rooms would appeal to a lot of people

    the staff was amazing, the location is excellent, Loved the Ren products. the bed was very comfortable, the rooms air conditioned and overall the hotel is very cozy, charming and tasteful. I would definitely go back, especially as I discovered how close the diamond district is to The Rookery.

    while the hotel has free WiFi It would be good if there was also a computer to access for guests who didn't lug their laptop.

    decor is olde world; all bedrooms different; sanitary fittings are restored antiques; antique old masters hanging on walls; breakfast in room at time to suit visitor.

    our room this time was a tad small but very nicely furnished and a comfortable bed with lovely pillows and linen.
