Bankside Hotel

Bankside, an independent hotel set on the culturally vibrant South Bank,

with 161 bedrooms including seven suites is set to become a social hub for

anyone with a passion for culture, art, and high-quality food.


This intimate six-story hotel feels like home thanks to friendly, intelligent

service. Handpicked furniture and eclectic artworks contrast with hidden

hi-tech touches to conjure up a timeless design narrative that also

looks to the future. Lines are blurred between work and play, with social

spaces providing an inspirational environment for the dynamic guest


There is a permanent creative space in the hotel, filled by an ever-changing roster of artists curated by Contemporary Collective, a gallery that promotes emerging artists. During your stay, you will be able to watch artists practice their creative expertise and so be taken on an informative and artistic journey.
