    The Academy is located in a great location to use the Underground to get to the rest of London. The hotel itself was decorated beautifully and felt very much unique. Our bathroom was gorgeous and we had enough space for everything we needed in our room. We did receive an upgrade upon check in which was appreciated. The bed was comfortable and we had a mini-fridge (with stocked beers, sodas, water each day!), safe, and small dresser/hang-up clothing space. Breakfast was easily accessed and fully stocked with the basics. The garden area was relaxing and a great space to hang out in the afternoon. Staff were wonderful.

    Everything! From the minute we checked in to the minute we checked out. The service, the staff, the room, it was all superb!

    The breakfast service was a little bit unorganised. We arrived both mornings at 9:45am and we had to ask for cutlery and glasses, Orange and milk to be topped up and just the general unkemptness of it.

    A very comfortable hotel in a beautiful area. A big plus for the peaceful garden, the quality bed sheets, and the complimentary minibar. The continental breakfast was delicious, with good quality ingredients. Some fresh vegetables/salad would have been nice. The staff was very friendly and the room spotlessly clean. Thank you for the room upgrade!

    The only downside was that the AC was leaking, an issue which could be easily resolved.

About

Overview

The Academy is a 50 bedroom Luxury 5* Townhouse hotel in the heart of Bloomsbury, London. The hotel has been created by linking together five historic Georgian buildings. These were originally built as private homes in 1776. Over the last 300 years each house has evolved its own character and atmosphere and now offers a unique Town House experience with the added luxury of two private gardens at the rear of the hotel.
