A new floating hotel called SUNBORN LONDON arrived in the capital yesterday afternoon.

The luxury yacht has been turned in to a four star hotel with 138 guestrooms across five levels.

The 120-metre long vessel arrived on the Thames at the end of last week and was moored at Tilbury Power Station over the weekend.

On Tuesday afternoon, assisted by the tugs SVITZER LACEBY and SVITZER CECILIA, the vessel made its way up to London where she entered the Royal Docks to get to her new home by the the ExCeL centre.

The Sunborn hotel, operated by ISS, will open later this month.

Hans Niemi from Sunborn Yacht Hotels commented, “The new hotel in London, currently the world’s most important city, gives us an important platform for the Sunborn brand and business concept.”

He continued, “We’re delighted to work with ISS, a trusted partner with a strong track record in the hotel industry. Their focus on delivering the finest bespoke service in the most professional manner blends well with our culture.”
