The Guilt-Free City Break We’ve All Been Waiting For
Want to travel AND help save the planet?
It’s time for positive action and social change within travel, enter the best suit for the job: The Good Hotel, the guilt-free city break we’ve all been waiting for. The Dutch-designed barge has a chic industrial structure softened by colourful, natural textures, and its unique interior creates an open and shareable space. With low-slung sofas and a rooftop terrace that’s the perfect spot to unwind with (a few) cocktails, you can chill-out guilt free whilst overlooking Canary Wharf’s impressive skyline.
London’s floating hotel is pathing the way by offering a premium service whilst also supporting the local community through training unemployed locals in hospitality, and re-investing its profits into a charity in Guatemala – it really is *and we cannot stress this enough* the Good Hotel.
The sign of a good hotel is the bed sheets. You know what we mean. We can indeed confirm that the Good Hotel has the freshest and crispest bed sheets which will keep you snuggled in bed post your alarm. We’re a fan of simple bedroom setup which focuses on the necessities: a humongous bed, with those essential cloud-like pillows. The unique waterfront location and large windows allow natural light to flood in - every Londoners’ dream alarm clock.
The moody lit bar and restaurant is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner or a cosy family affair. Good Hotel offers a delicious menu including many vegetarian and vegan dishes, sourced from sustainable and local businesses, so there’s truly something for everyone. We love a guilt-free burger!
Within a short walk, you’ll find world-renowned convention center The ExCeL and The Emirates Air Line cable car link. A short ‘flight’ over the River Thames and you’ll arrive at the O2 entertainment complex on the Greenwich Peninsula buzzing with lots of events, restaurants and bars. It’s truly where the bustling London scene comes alive, so be sure to get yourself down there for an event during your stay.
Good Hotel is the perfect example of how easy it can be to be eco-travel. For your next trip, spend some time researching into sustainable hotels and restaurants which support the local community and businesses. We can all afford to give back a little!
PS. The Good Hotel has a sister hotel in Guatemala - Sí por favor!
