Great location and close to transportation. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful. I would definitely stay there again. The only thing we didn’t like was the bathroom. The design is pretty but impractical. Getting out of that raised tub is treacherous with no step or handrail (and I’m healthy and active; it was really difficult for my mom). The half wall on the shower/tub is weird because there’s no door to close so the mirror fogs up. The hair dryer didn’t plug into the one outlet in the bathroom so you had to dry you’re hair somewhere else.

Staff were very helpful.. front desk and concierge. Spa was clean and well maintained. Room was pretty good sized. Location of the hotel was walking distance (15-20 min) to many of London's main attractions. Hotel restaurants were good but menu was slim for vegetarians. Overall excellent experience.

Loved the vibe, bars, friendly staff, location, and perks for being a Orbitz VIP.

beautiful views on the Thames. They gave us free cocktails while we waited for a feather-free room. Great room service too. Would definitely come back.

The location of the hotel is great. Most of the staff was great and very accommodating. The Sea Containers restaurant was terrible and the staff was not very warm. The tubs are very high and slippery after using them. As a result, I hit and badly bruised my leg from repeatedly hitting it.

Great location on the river with a fun modern decor. Staff was friendly, available and helpful. The terrace bar, main floor bar and restaurant were all great. I would definitely stay here again.

This place is disappointing. The rooms are awfully small, the bedding is uncomfortable, and the staff are inexperienced. It’s a party hotel, but be advised, the air quality in the rooms is so stuffy and unwelcoming, if you suffer from claustrophobia, do not stay here. Asthma, do not stay here! Location is good. Although the rest was pretty terrible. I give this place 3 stars for location, and for nice lobby decor.

Modern and stylish - great location - a boutique hotel with spacious rooms!

Centrally located, great looking hotel with top restaurants, bars and a cinema(!) on site

Unique, with a great restaurant, and great location.

Proximity to the Thames, the London Eye, and many wonderful restaurants

Our stay was great, we really enjoyed London and the Sea Container hotel

The staff was so helpful anytime we had a question about the property, they gave us a in depth review of what is available to us when we checked in. The food at the restaurant in the hotel could use improvement, along with the service. Plenty of empty seats and they still took awhile for them to offer what we would like to drink, the drink then took 15 mins to get after ordering....we were sitting next to the bar and the bartender was just talking to another server. The other two bars at the hotel were truly great, and fast service though! Staff and maids were fantastic the whole stay! LOCATION WAS AMAZING!!!

We loved everything about Sea Containers London. EVERY staff member, the room. housekeeping, breakfast, the service and the location were all amazing.

Very clean hotel with a convenient location! Everything we wanted to do was walkable from here including Borough Market and the London Eye. We requested early check in and when we arrived our room was ready! The restaurant is great food is delicious! The rooms were nice size and clean the view of the river is beautiful. The nautical theme is really cute!

In a great, but less tourist-centric location. The staff were friendly and the rooms were great. Very comfortable bed and large bathroom with a very nice shower.
