An independent adult only boutique hotel with restaurant, The Mandrake showcases extraordinary design, an enviable art collection (with an artist is residence programme), and an eclectic mix of interiors.
Located in London's Fitzrovia, just a few minutes' walk from Oxford Street, the 34 rooms and suites are complemented by a curated selection of sounds and smells, creating a surreal ambience in the heart of the capital.
As soon as I stepped foot onto the premises the space spoke to me. I knew I should trust it and it was the place where I could create a haven in central London, a beautiful sanctuary with hanging gardens and mysterious artwork that would create a surreal environment. The objective was to create a journey for the guests, a journey that would ensure the guests experience something really special, through the interior design, the food, the cocktails and the service that we provide in the hotel. The idea is that the hotel touches all the senses.

On-site modern European eatery Yopo serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and blends classical techniques with innovative ingredients. Inspiration is taken from South America, following Chef George Scott-Toft travels through Peru, Chile, and Argentina. Start with a drink in Waeska bar and sample a plant-inspired cocktail before moving into the restaurant where parquet flooring mixes with mustard banquettes and distressed walls. Snack on octopus, artichoke and olive empanadas or prawn, pineapple and plantain ceviche, then move on to the likes of line-caught squid with aubergine and aji panca, mushroom and smoked ricotta ravioli, or roast pork presa with kale, onions, and sesame. There's a private dining room that seats up to 20 guests – ideal for a group – and outside on the sanctuary-like terrace, passion flowers and jasmine create a calm, tropical vibe.
The 34 stylish rooms and suites at The Mandrake are spread over four floors and divided into six categories. Included in the collection are 3 large suites and a magnificent penthouse. All bedrooms sleep a maximum of 2 people and cannot accommodate extra beds.
Close to the capital's theatreland and the shops of Oxford and Bond Street, there's no shortage of things to do close to the hotel. And with Charlotte and Goodge Street just a stone's throw away, if you fancy a meal somewhere other than Yopo, you won't be disappointed. From Japanese at Roka, Taiwanese at Bao and Jun Tanaka's The Ninth, to small plates at Barrica and Salt Yard and MasterChef's Monica Galetti at Mere, there's food fon offer from all corners of the globe.
Up to 2 small/medium dogs can stay in these rooms at a cost of £60 per stay (and a 'stay' is considered to be up to 7 nights). Apart from guide dogs or hearing dogs, we cannot allow animals in public areas. However, there is 24/7 in-room dining or there are a number of wonderful restaurants nearby which welcomes dogs of all sizes. The hotel even has a specialist Canine Concierge who knows everything there is to know about dogs in this great city -from grooming parlours, veterinary services, trainers, walkers dog friendly museums, and parks.
