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.

Our four night stay at Sea Containers was everything we hoped. Incredible welcome, beautiful lobby and a room with the best view. The selection at breakfast was second to none. The kids were happy with a selection of pancakes and waffles whilst there was a full buffet on offer. Every single staff member was friendly, knowledgable and willing to tend to our every need. Location wise.. we were within walking distance to the London eye, the Tate Modern, The Clink, the Tower of London, St Paula Cathedral, the IMAX. Kids had a ball as did we: can’t wait ti go back!

We enjoyed our stay so much and we do recommend it to everyone who is planning visit London.

We came down to stay at the hotel for 1 night and asked for early check in as we were going out for the full day and wanted to get ready. They didn't have any rooms ready when we arrived but the front desk kindly offered me the use of the spa changing room. We tried to check in once more an hour later, and then again at 4:30pm but the rooms were still not ready. Possibly due to it being our third attempt, we received an upgrade to a room that was ready without even complaining. We were given an apartment, which was the most incredible surprise, and was actually bigger than our house. The excitement of our upgraded room made the whole trip for us and we finally headed out in a much improved mood. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the room and the amenities, and the view was brilliant. Absolutely loved the shower too!! There seemed to be a lot of nice little touches around the room, but this was possibly as we had one of the best rooms. The only downside was that we headed back to the hotel for around 12:30 as we had been told the bars were open until 1am, but we weren't allowed in as last orders had apparently been called. It was a shame, as nowhere nearby was open to get a drink! Overall we had a very memorable visit, and we would love to come back and stay in the future (unfortunately it probably will be in a much smaller room!!). Thank you for going the extra mile!

After a 5hour drive our room wasn't ready until 5:15pm to check in. Simply not good enough. We wanted to quickly freshen up and go straight out as we had a family meal booked. We were only in London for night. Spoilt our trip.

The rooms were beautiful and very comfortable. My patio room was a great place to sit and relax with a glass of wine after a long day seeing the sites of London. The staff were great as well as the restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel!

The level of service and cleanliness did not meet the expectations. For example we had to ask for water on a daily basis, ask for toilet papers and clean towels. Bathroom wasn't cleaned daily and it wasn't clean properly.
