Hotels & Lodging: The Zetter Townhouse in London

October 20, 2011

When the Zetter Hotel opened in Clerkenwell in 2004, it created a buzz; there was a general feeling that the neighborhood had arrived. Seven years later, the area has gone from strength to strength, so much that Mark Sainsbury and Michael Benyan have opened the Zetter Townhouse across the street in St. John's Square. Smaller and quirkier, the Zetter Townhouse is "like the private residence of the Zetter's eccentric great-aunt, full of art collected from her travels abroad." It wouldn't surprise us if its designer, Russell Sage, was inspired by Graham Greene's memorable Aunt Augusta in Travels with My Aunt.
