It’s a double treat today from Morgans Hotel Group: not only do we have an opening date of September 30 for Mondrian London at Sea Containers, along with some pretty great introductory offers, we finally have room images as well.

Above is what a Standard Room looks like, mixing shades of grey with a punch of pink in just over 310 sq ft. We love the “transatlantic 1920s liner” references, with the curved corner of the bathroom, the wall panelling, and the groovy mirror. For a limited time, rooms are starting at £165 (about $280) a night excluding VAT.

There are 359 rooms in total, which from Standard go to River View Deluxe in four steps. Above is a the second highest category, a River View Balcony Suite, which comes in at 700 sq ft, with an open plan layout, separate powder room and as the name suggests, a balcony with outdoor seating overlooking the Thames, Blackfriars Bridge and St. Paul’s to the east, and Temple to the west across the river.

The groovy mirror comes back in this bathroom shot, where toiletries will be MALIN+GOETZ. Studios and up have separate bathtubs.

This wouldn’t be a Mondrian without a focus on where to eat and drink. The all-glass floors at the top will house a rooftop bar, which we currently have little additional detail on. Downstairs, cocktail bar Dandelyan will take “inspiration from the botanical wilds of the British countryside and around the world” to serve its drinks. The restaurant (without a name at this point as far as we can tell), run by Seamus Mullen, takes a similarly cross-border approach, bringing transatlantic cuisine to its open kitchen and wood-fired oven. It will have a riverside terrace, which we first saw in renderings here.

We’re curious to see more of AGUA Bathhouse & Spa as well, which promises new spa products and the “social community of the Roman bathhouse cultures”, with a theme of “being submersed in a lucid dreamscape of underwater tranquility”.

We’re pleasantly surprised that aside from the introductory offer of £165 ($280), rates start under the £200 mark at £195 (about $335) a night, though that is excluding VAT. As soon as we can get inside Mondrian London, you’ll read about it here.
