Overall Experience

Scores are on a 20-point scale, from verified guest reviews. The quality score helps ensure that our selection stays fresh and vital.

Some of London’s luxury boutique hotels are so tasteful they’re almost invisible, catering to guests who want a blank canvas on which to project their own personalities. And then there’s the Mandrake. Set in a relatively sleepy section of Fitzrovia, it’s nevertheless nothing short of a fantasy world, a moody, atmospheric 34-room boutique hotel surrounding a central courtyard full of hanging jasmine and passionflower.

It’s named, after all, for a hallucinogenic root much beloved by occult practitioners; it’s only natural that a stay here should be a transformative experience. Rooms are a trip to the Far East via Victorian London, all rich textures, vibrant, dark colors, and theatrical lighting. And while all of them are perfectly luxurious, there’s a penthouse that can compete with any of London’s finest lodgings, complete with a rooftop Jacuzzi under a retractable roof.

Yopo, the restaurant, serves modern European fare with South American flavors and an emphasis on raw and plant-based cuisine. With a small in-house theater and a focus on art and cinema, the Mandrake has clearly thrown its lot in with London’s status as a cultural center. You’re as close to the production companies in Soho as you are to Theatreland and the shops of Oxford Street, after all.
