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.

Main impression is how bad the housekeeping is to the point you'd be forgiven for thinking this is a 3-star hotel. They also lost some of my laundry, managed to return some but still lost 2 pairs of socks.

Stayed at Sea Containers and had a fabulous 1 night stay visiting family in London. Debora on reception was welcoming, friendly and ensured we had all the necessary information to make the most out of our stay. Many thanks to Victor Wareborn Front of House Manager at Sea Containers for his assistance in making our stay so memorable. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

My first visit to Sea Containers and won’t be the last. I was accompanying dear friends from San Francisco who spend a lot of time traveling the world on a regular basis. Of course I wanted to take them somewhere special and different. Last nights meal was perfect, everything from the greet at the reception desk, to the table service, food and location I could not fault. All finished off with late drinks in the rooftop bar, what a fantastic evening, start to finish with my guests left feeling very impressed. Thank you to all involved, we were made to feel very special!

We loved this hotel. The decor is stunning and quite unusual based on being on a ship. Service was stunning. Especially Vincent on reception who was so helpful getting us a lovely room early . We were blown away by our lovely room and the view over the river and sights . We loved the wonderful bar on the 12 floor with lovely views and it was so stylish. Cocktails were stunning

i had a 2 night stay in the hotel and had 3 separate problems, two of which were over charging (separate events) and a problem with my bathroom flooding. While the hotel responded to each of these issues, having so many over a 2 night stay seems excessive for a well run 5 star hotel.

The perfect stay for us! Twice in one week! We used the hotel as bookends for a trip to Italy. They even kept some of the luggage for us. We'll be back and friends have already booked their stay as well!
