Buzzy social hubs and rooms furnished by Vitra make up this sleek design hotel on London's South Bank
Designed by award-winning Dutch architects Concrete, with furnishings courtesy of Vitra and Panton, citizenM Bankside offers designer digs on London's South Bank. Standout pieces include Jasper Morrison’s sculptural cream leather bucket seats, Frank Gehry’s corrugated cardboard "wigglestool" and an Eames lounge chair. Stuffed with curios and books from around the globe, the lobby-cum-work-hub-cum-bar feels like the spacious living room of a seriously well-traveled friend, from the mini replicas of the Eiffel Tower to the New York license plates to the Russian dolls. Upstairs, corridors to the bedrooms are printed with large Google map–style images, and walls are dotted with inspiring quotes.
Bed and Bath
There are 192 space-efficient guestrooms kitted out with Vitra furniture, wall-to-wall windows and super-kingsize beds clad in Frette linens. They're petite, at 172 square feet, but citizenM has put some serious thought into providing for the modern traveler, from the tiny bathroom pods, which have no-nonsense power showers, to the international electrical outlets at the minidesk to the Samsung tablet–controlled mood lighting, movies on demand, and the handy ironing room on each floor.
canteenM is open 24/7 for light bites. Local eateries provide the food, from a full English breakfast in the morning to sushi, sandwiches and hot meals throughout the day. Dining or not, the diverse lounge is the life and soul of the place — lively enough for cocktails in the evening but quiet enough to read and work, too. Inspired by the design? There’s an online bookstore to browse the latest art, architecture and fashion tomes.
