Set within the Sea Containers building - originally designed by acclaimed American architect Warren Platner - on London’s South Bank, the hotel boasts 359 guest rooms and suites, Sea Containers restaurant serving up fresh modern cuisine, an award-winning experimental cocktail bar spearheaded by master mixologist Ryan Chetiyawardana, and an exclusive rooftop bar with panoramic views over the River Thames. Designed by Design Research Studio under the creative direction of visionary Tom Dixon, Sea Containers London is also home to a maritime-inspired 56-seat cinema and spa. Inspired by the golden age of ocean cruising, a time when exotic ingredients were introduced to the world, and an abundance of fresh local produce was celebrated, the three distinctive food and drink venues each offer a dynamic experience. Flavourful dishes range from nourishing to hearty at Sea Containers Restaurant, which is perfect for an al fresco lunch by the river, sunset cocktails or an atmospheric dinner. Experience innovative cocktails in the award-winning Lyaness, voted as one of the top 50 World’s Best Bars, featuring a signature electric blue seating as well as the original sweeping green marble bar. Take in panoramic views of the London skyline from our rooftop bar 12th Knot, with its beautifully appointed lounge and outdoor terrace for unrivalled views over the River Thames.

Pure luxury (stayed in loft suite). In my opinion, the build quality and decor are premium. Impeccable room service with immaculate attention to detail. Front desk staff super friendly, good banter. Sturdy walls, quiet rooms. Ordering food super convenient. Had really nice time, hope to return soon.

1st time back at this hotel since it used to be The Mondrian. I have to say it’s lost a little bit of personality as the roof too bad used to be a vibe as did the cocktail bar and restaurant but it feels a lot more like any other hotel now which is a shame. The lack of mini bar, cocktail trolley, decorative items and art work in the rooms made me feel like I was in a perfectly nice but slightly soulless conference centre. Some small fixes that I feel could be easily rectified. That being said, it’s still a great place to stay. The rooms are a good size, my wife and I were both here on business and had one of the Apartment rooms which had two desks and a 10 person siding table which left us plenty of space to do zoom calls etc. The staff I will say were great, particularly the bell staff (who’s names I didn’t get) they helped me with deliveries and printing documents for various PCR tests needed for our next trip and Rodrigo on reception was a great help too. All in all a great place to stay still, they’ve just lost a step with regards to the overall feel and personality of the hotel which is a shame in my eyes.

Had a great time with my daughter and my mum. The hotel was lovely,modern and close to the London Eye.Staff we’re friendly and helpful and we were able to check in early and leave our bags in room to explore London. The south bank is an amazing area,a short walk to temple and the embankment tubes. Double room nice and large,clean,trendy and had a great view.

After visiting Sea containers restaurants for a number of years and on the last visit viewing the rooms, I decided that it would be great to stay and celebrate my Sisters birthday here. We were not disappointed. Rodriguez, wow! Provided outstanding service and catered to our every need. Top notch hospitality, a true example of how to leave guests with a lasting experience. Thank you so much for helping to make our stay and her birthday extra special. Stefanie- also thank you kindly for being so attentive. No doubt we will be back. Sea containers comes highly recommended. ******6 stars :)
