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
We loved the ethos of the hotel, the staff were great, friendly helpful and efficient. The Living Room area we loved, informal, comfortable with interesting views over docklands. The position was good with good links to London and we enjoyed the cable car. However the bedroom was a great disappointment. Comfortable bed but too small and cramped [we expected small as a prison ship but not this small!]
Such a lovely place to stay. Perfect location if going over to the o2! Very clean, friendly staff and very lovely rooms!
Only thing we believe that could be improved would be to have a tv in the rooms!
i really really like this hotel. The vibe is beyond excellent, the cause is good, and it gave me the feeling of doing good! Walking distance to the excel, metro, crawling distance to the Emirates Cablecar to the O2 arena.
