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

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.
