Good Hotel London / Rooms

Good Hotel London is a floating social pop-up hotel moored in the historic Royal Victoria Docks offering views over the river Thames and city of London. It moved there from Amsterdam where it stayed for one year while training 70 unemployed Amsterdammers to find a job in the hospitality industry. The Good Hotel, which was totally re-purposed from a former detention center into a beautiful 144 room hotel, offers a premium hotel experience and the opportunity to do something back for the local community while traveling.

Twin room / Pure is premium to us. We didn’t design golden taps or use marble tabletops to create a premium look and feel. We found luxury in simplicity and originality.

Inspiration cabinet / We put a lot of effort in designing the best cabinet for our guests. The open frame keeps the room spacious while providing sufficient storage space and the integrated 'bowl' helps you to never loose your keys again.

Doors / The artwork secretly shows housekeeping which room type it is and the rooms numbers are custom-made from stainless steel. One of our favorite details are the laser etched oak door hangers. The corridors are black to create a quite atmosphere with gallery-like splashes of art. When you enter the transition from dark to light makes the small rooms feel more spacious.
