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.
How to Get There
The hotel itself was everything we could have wanted, the rooms are a little on the small side but big enough for a night or two. We didn’t use the terrace because of the weather but imagine it’s lovely when the suns out
Theo location was good for an event on O2.
Theo Room was small and with no TV. Clean.
The express coffee was poor, and the staff in the bar recuse a expresso from bar machine. The staff of recepcion was great.
A cool space, great location for The Excel and with friendly staff but unfortunately the branding and promise of a 'good sleep' was not the case for me, in a room which it transpired was known to be excessively noisy (external noise from staff and deliveries entering and leaving right below). And yet they still sold it and put me in it. Not so GOOD.

Frankly, an awesome experience in London. Good sleep, good food, good view, good spaces, good people, good location (not in the city center but 2 min walk to the tube), good values through a solidarity project. We quickly understood why they named the hotel like that ! And the name should be upgraded... :-) We loved the sensation of being home.
