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.

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.

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.

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!

Stayed at Sea Containers recently for a work trip. An amazing experience- the staff were fantastic, the level of service was above & beyond through-out my stay and made the trip a pleasure. From when I was greeted and checked-in by the friendly Dafne (thanks for being so accomodating!), through to the roof-top bar team, and then the staff at the restaurant overlooking the Thames. Thanks to all! The hotel's location is very central, close to Blackfrairs station for Thameslink and Tube. Very easy to access all of London. Looking forward to staying next time i'm in London.

The level of service I received during my 3 day stay was amazing. The staff were great from start to finish were very helpful but Ismail in the restaurant stands out. He looked after large party and made an active effort to tell us about the different foods during our meal. Thank you very much

Beautiful hotel with friendly staff and great services. Stunning view of London and great rooftop bar. Convenient location with coffee shop, supermarket and restaurant nearby. Hotel is right next to the river with miles of river walkway for early morning run or walk. Tate museum was close to the hotel for people looking for inspirations. Will stay here again when visit London.

A gem of a hotel in a great location! Room was absolutely lush and really clean, the staff were so friendly and helpful. My only issue was the overly soft pillows - but that’s just person preference. Really enjoyed our stay

We stayed 3 nights in Sea Containers and could not recommend it highly enough. The staff went out of their way to make our visit enjoyable and carefree. Cocktails are a must do. If you are staying in London just book it.

WOW! What an amazing welcome we had at this beautiful quirky hotel. From arrival to departing we had the best time! We were greeted on arrival by Duty Manager Luke, who proceeded to check us in, and escorted us down to park our car. Once arriving in the room, we were absolutely blown away by the stunning views of the River Thames from the balcony. After a long drive from Scotland, we decided to head down to Sea Containers Restaurant where we had a beautiful evening meal (shout out to the chefs for the Seabass Tacos) they were amazing. Decided to end the evening in 12th Knot where we managed to get a beautiful table by the window, with stunning views over Central London. The buffet style breakfast in the morning had a wide range of options for you to fill your boots! Thank you to the restaurant team in the morning for the beautiful service. Upon checking out of the hotel, we were taken back to the car by one of the lovely bell team (apologies I didn’t catch your name). I think it’s safe to say we have found our new favourite hotel in London and will definitely be back, hopefully next time we can book for longer. Thank you again @seacontainerslondon for an amazing stay!

Apart from being in an excellent location on the bank of the Thames with a view of St Paul’s Cathedral, the staff were attentive and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and the meal in the restaurant was excellent. We’d definitely stay here again
