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 Dandelyan, awarded Best Bar in the World 2018 by World's Fifty Best, with its sweeping green marble bar and distinctive pink seating. Take in panoramic views of the London skyline from our rooftop bar 12th Knot, which features a beautifully appointed lounge and outdoor terrace for unobstructed views over the River Thames.

Neighborhood
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.

Stayed overnight whilst meeting friends in London. Great atmosphere and feel to the place. Bar upstairs have great views but you need to book to get in. Worth a visit but keep in mind not best central location.

Good location. Nice rooms with one of the comfiest beds I have slept in. Check-in ok, check-out not so good. Massive queues and staff floating around being trendy and avoiding the problem. Not a cheap hotel, and they seek to pry every last penny from you: want a second coffee at
