A unique London stay at an industrial-chic pop-up hotel moored at the historic Royal Victoria Dock

The Lowdown

Good Hotel London has just floated its way onto London’s hotel scene, and it’s offering plenty to wow luxury-lovers. This converted Dutch detention center opened in November 2016, following a 330-mile (288 nautical miles) North Sea crossing from its first address inAmsterdam. Today, this pop-up concept hotel is now happily moored in the place it’s calling home for the next five years: the Royal Victoria Dock.
This unique boutique barge nails the minimalist, industrial-chic vibe in its stylish guest rooms, which boast modish décor and statement-making Brazilian artwork – not to mention the views over the docks, waterfront or River Thames.Elsewhere, you’ll find a fabulous roof garden that serves drinks and café classics when the sun’s out. There’s also a sleek signature restaurant that offers buffet and à la carte breakfasts, as well as anytime global cuisine, delicious comfort food and super-healthy salads, all created with locally sourced ingredients.
But this one-of-a-kind London stay isn’t only good in name and style; it’s also good in nature. The Good Group wants travel to positively impact local communities. Following a social business model that provides training to locals who have long been unemployed, this non-profit base aims to help re-integrate those in its program back into the economy – no wonder it’s been awarded a REBEL award for its innovation and disruption.

200 yards from Excel, this is effectively a popup hotel based on a former ferry type maritime vessel permanently moored in St Kate’s Dock. It’s friendly. Staff are helpful and it’s clean and fresh. The rooms and beds are small and very basic but comfortable. The in-cabin shower rooms are no worse than many hotels on shore but not exactly a treat. I might have said say that location made it a no brainer but there’s hotel opposite and another more elegant yachotel between this one and the Excel entrance. However this one is a charity and not for profit so wins on social responsibility. I got a good rate but some days it’s over 300/night but it’s not rigged but diesel !

Not so good...

The room booked was supposed to be a twin however, when we checked in we were told there was only a double room available so not a good start. When we got to the room it was very disappointing, so small I felt claustrophobic, the walls were thin and the loo noisy. There was no way I could stay so checked myself in to the nearby ibis instead.

Lovely staff who were always happy to help!

Wonderful location, awesome clever mininal interior design that gives a unique utilitarian vibe, cute and compact rooms that have all you need. Energetic and kind customer service. Lovely view from the windows that gives a feeling of being secluded from the city while shops, bars and transport connection nearby are great.
