Sitting on the Thames’ Southbank like a docked transatlantic ocean liner between the Oxo Tower and Blackfriars bridge, Mondrian London takes residence in Sea Containers House, an iconic structure originally designed as a hotel by the celebrated American architect and designer Warren Platner in the 1970s, a purpose it has finally embraced after decades of office use. Interiors were designed by Tom Dixon, with modern masculine Deco lines and more playful touches throughout.

Guests are first drawn in by a vast copper hull running from outside the building, through to the lobby and on to the river side of the hotel. 359 rooms feature rosewood doors and porthole bathroom mirrors to feel like glamorous, almost sci-fi cabins, with windows offering incredible views of the river and city.

The restaurant, Sea Containers by chef Seamus Mullen, is informal brasserie with a farm-to-table menu arranged around sharing plates. Alongside is the Dandelyan, a handsome green marble bar bar serving up potent cocktails. On the top deck is one of the Mondrian’s highlights, the Rumpus Room rooftop bar with an interior inspired by a group of bohemian young aristocrats and socialites in 1920s London known as the Bright Young Things.

Below the waterline, the agua Bathhouse & Spa is a decadent boutique bathhouse, a distinct social hub filled with authentic spa experiences and personalised therapies. There is also a 56-seat Curzon cinema.

Wonderfully situated, Mondrian London is within walking distance of landmarks such as Tate Modern, Royal Festival Hall, the National and Globe theatres, as well as Borough Market and the London Eye.
