A unique London stay at a floating concept pop-up hotel moored at the historic Royal Victoria Dock, including breakfast and an optional water view


Having floated its way onto London’s hotel scene, this converted Dutch detention centre offers plenty to wow design-lovers. Opened in December 2016 following a 330 mile (288 nautical miles) North Sea crossing from Amsterdam, it’s now happily moored in the place it’s calling home for the next five years – the Royal Victoria Dock.

Dedicated to helping people, Good Hotel is a unique example of philanthropic hospitality. Recognised with a REBEL Award for greatest innovation/disruption in the industry, the hotel offers employment and training to unemployed people in the community. In fact, the hotel was originally founded with the purpose of creating funding to help educate children of low-income families living in the mountain villages around Antigua Guatemala.

But the reasons to stay at Good Hotel don’t stop here; expect laid-back, chic industrial design and furnishings, a hip restaurant, rooms boasting magnificent Thames views, a spacious rooftop bar (open from Springtime) and a general community-focused feel. Good Hotel is an ideal place to come back to after a day of exploration.

It’s all minimalist decor and statement-making Brazilian artworks in the guestrooms, all of which vary in size - from 13 square metres upwards - and layout. Standard rooms come with double beds (or twin beds on request). Assuring waterfront and River Thames views, the Deluxe rooms come with king-size beds (please note, this room cannot be twinned). Rooms are located on the first and second floor, but there is lift access.


- Luxury towels
- Tea and coffee facilities

The Living Room is a hip-looking dining space with communal tables. Head here in the mornings for buffet-style spreads (daily between 7-11am, Monday-Saturday, 8am-12pm, Sunday and bank holidays). Return for an all-day menu that includes global cuisine, comfort food and healthy salads – all of which are prepared with locally-sourced ingredients. There’s also a rooftop terrace for drinks and tapas (open from Springtime).


You’ll be moored at the historic Royal Victoria Dock in Newham – the London borough of that lies north of the River Thames. All of East London’s major attractions are within easy distance by tube and taxi; most famously Greenwich Park with its famous Prime Meridian line and Cutty Sark (all easily accessible with a ride above the Thames in an Emirates Air Line cable car), the O2 Arena, Wilton's Music Hall, Sutton House, Whitechapel Art Gallery, and the Columbia Road Flower Market. Equally visit-worthy is Brick Lane for bagels, Stratford for its Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and Bethnal Green for its V&A Museum of Childhood. Good Hotel London is a short, 10-minute walk from the ExCeL Convention Centre and just over two miles from London City Airport and Canary Wharf.

You'll find TVs in The Living Room, rather than in the guest rooms.
