Only 328 feet from Farringdon Railway Station, the small hotel is also just 5 minutes' walk from Barbican Tube Station. With sumptuous antique furniture and artwork, each individually styled and air-conditioned room offers a flat-screen LCD TV. The luxury private bathrooms boast land&water toiletries and a hairdryer. In the mornings, guests at The Rookery can enjoy breakfast in the elegant conservatory or served to the privacy of the room. Breakfast includes freshly baked croissants. For lunch and evening meals, there is a room service menu as well as a wide range of restaurants and bars in the immediate area. Set within a row of 18th-century houses, The Rookery still retains many original features. Guests can relax in the library or in front of an open fire in the oak-paneled lounge.

Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was the most impressive thing about the stay.
The staff didn’t seem to know what they were doing! couldn’t even bring up 2 glasses of champagne to the room as they only sell it in a bottle? (It took 30 mins for them to find out if they could??) It’s a 4 star hotel, I would have thought that could have been done? Just disappointed with the whole stay.

Amazing and interesting. Staff are top notch. It's absolutely spotless everywhere. Drawback, maybe getting in and out of some baths in some rooms. Not all rooms have proper showers etc. However this minor and the staff will try their very best to ensure everything is perfect for you.

very cool room with old furniture, and individually decorated rooms. Old style bathrooms. Location good too as it is close to the train station Farringdon
you have to shower in the bath tub, which is very British but it causes a lot of water

We really enjoyed interior decoration, the breakfast and my wife was smitten with the hotel’s black cat (which we learned was a rescue who became the proprietor over half a decade ago).
