A unique London stay at a floating concept pop-up hotel moored at the historic Royal Victoria Dock, including breakfast and an optional water-view room

Having floated its way onto London’s hotel scene, this converted Dutch detention centre offers plenty to wow design-lovers. Opened in December 2016 following a 330 mile (288 nautical miles) North Sea crossing from Amsterdam, it’s now happily moored in the place it’s calling home for the next five years – the Royal Victoria Dock.

The guestrooms at this unique boutique-barge have nailed the minimalist look with modish decor and statement-making Brazilian artworks. Expect Wi-Fi (available throughout the hotel), comfy beds, en-suite bathrooms with showers, Handy phones and, of course, views over the docks or waterfront.

Elsewhere, you’ll find a fabulous New York High Line-inspired rooftop terrace that opens for drinks and tapas when the sun’s out. There’s also a sleek-looking signature restaurant that serves buffet breakfasts as well as anytime global cuisine, delicious comfort food and super-healthy salads – all of which are created with locally-sourced ingredients.

Excellent for
City Scenery Shopping Sightseeing UK and Ireland


You’ll be moored at the historic Royal Victoria Dock in Newham – the London borough of that lies north of the River Thames. All of East London’s major attractions are within easy distance by tube and taxi; most famously Greenwich Park with its famous Prime Meridian line and Cutty Sark (all easily accessible with a ride above the Thames in an Emirates Air Line cable car), the O2 Arena, Wilton's Music Hall, Sutton House, Whitechapel Art Gallery, and the Columbia Road Flower Market.

Equally visit-worthy is Brick Lane for bagels, Stratford for its Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and Bethnal Green for its V&A Museum of Childhood. Good Hotel London is a short, 10-minute walk from the ExCeL Convention Centre and just over two miles from London City Airport and Canary Wharf.
