Mondrian London at Sea Containers was designed by the creative mind that is Britain’s own Tom Dixon, who has beautifully blended the original building’s architecture with the modernism and sophistication that Mondrian is known for, bringing a new glow to London’s South Bank.

Mondrian London goes beyond the typical hotel experience; including a cinema on the premises, and let’s not forget about Sea Containers itself: the bar and restaurant where guests can enjoy freshly cooked dishes prepared by American chef, Seamus Mullen.

The hotel’s design and architecture is dazzling from beginning to end, situated on the banks of the River Thames in the famed Sea Containers building. It is so distinctive with the giant copper cladding inspired by the hull of a ship, that runs from outside in though the lobby. Many of the 359 bedrooms and suites offer stunning views of the river Thames.
