Mondrian London at Sea Containers

20 Upper Ground (Stamford St.) London

Luxury liner style on London’s South Bank in a sleek urban boutique hotel.

The deluxe room at the Mondrian London at Sea Containers.

Hipster chic is right at home in Southbank at the Mondrian’s first hotel outside the U.S. The Mondrian London at Sea Containers has reinvented a landmark building close to iconic attractions like Southbank Centre, the Globe Theatre, the London Eye and the Tate Modern. The nicely repurposed boxy-glass structure rises like a sentinel next to the river, making a dazzling first impression on approach. Appropriately, the boutique hotel exudes a 1920s ocean liner atmosphere updated with modern details; the centerpiece of the property is a copper-clad hull that stretches throughout the length of the building. Some of the 359 Tom Dixon-designed guest rooms overlook the Thames, and all include marble bathrooms, custom lighting, Dixon’s distinctive wing-back chairs and sophisticated monochromatic palettes enlivened with pops of color. To keep the water theme going, Agua Bathhouse & Spa soothes weary bodies with a full menu of services and treatments, and the riverside Sea Containers restaurant wows with dishes composed of local ingredients sourced from the nearby Borough Market. Whether you prefer tea or cocktails, the Mondrian capably handles both at Den or Dandelyan Bar. Even if you're not staying here, the hotel is worth a visit for the ground-floor Lazarides Editions gallery.
