Travelers who stay at the Mondrian London are thrilled with the amenities and location. The rooms are quite comfortable, and many travelers enjoy the view out the window. You can look out the windows and see the River Thames. Inside, the rooms are decorated to reflect the London ethos of being elegant but not too showy.
