A bit off the path for sightseeing, rooms lack incidentals necessary of hotel rooms in 2017, and the bathrooms (although very provincial) are dysfunctional.

    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
    focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough

    I don' think the hotel has a designated parking area, but I am sure you can check on the internet for parking garages in the area (Smithfield Market). Of course the parking may cost more than the room!
