Hotel Babylon – Imogen Edwards-Jones and Anonymous

Thoroughly enjoyable insider account of the goings on at top London hotels – the good, the bad and the ugly. The authors are upfront about the fact that whilst the book is a fictional account of a single day in a ficticious London hotel, it gathers hourly highlights from many years experience of working in real top hotels in London, and is all the more amusing for it. You won’t come away with any deep insights, but you will know a lot more about what hotel guests will try on, and how hotels and their staff function (or not).
