Hotel Review: The Mandrake Hotel, London

I recently posted about Hotel de Jobo in Paris, which I found so unabashedly bold that I would chuckle in bemusement every time I got back to the hotel after a day out. London’s The Mandrake Hotel is perhaps just as over-the-top flamboyant, if one was to compare the two. One might even suggest that where the Hotel de Jobo stopped just short of reaching the goal, The Mandrake picked up the mantle and went further. The result? Luxury and whimsical mythological make-believe coexisting in apparent harmony.
