The Academy, The Bloomsbury Town House - Hotel Reviews from across the web

No title - expert review
The Academy is in the heart of London's publishing district. If you look out your window, you see where Virginia Woolf and other literary members of the Bloomsbury Group passed by every day. Many original architectural details were preserved when these three 1776 Georgian row houses were joined. The...

Well named, with its proximity to London University and the British Museum, this hotel boasts reasonable rate that make it a firm favourite with many visitors. Originally three Georgian houses, it's an old-fashioned building, but brought bang-up-to-date. Service is efficient and friendly. Public are...

Created by linking five Georgian Town Houses together, The Academy offers the pleasure of experiencing London life as resident of 19th century Bloomsbury - but with all of the best modern luxuries. The setting is perfect for lovers of the arts and modern-day Bohemians, as the hotel is in the famous ...

Originally built as five Georgian homes in 1776, The Academy is an intimate hotel in London's famous Bloomsbury district. Each of its five houses has developed its own distinctive character through the years, to create a stunning boutique style hotel. Beautifully decorated throughout, and retaining ...

A Valentines Break Special - user review
My wife and I visited the Academy last year to combine a romantic weekend away along with a trip to see Bryn Terfel in Falstaff at the Royal Opera House (being married to a Bryn Stalker I tend to travel all over!) The Valen...

Lovely stay, no better value for money in London - user review
Stayed four nights at the Academy Townhouse. Service was supportive but unobtrusive. Porter assisted with luggage as there are no lifts. Rooms are small but nicely decorated and laid out to make the most of the space. Ask fo...

A Bit of London... - user review
After 3 weeks in Africa we were ready for any kind of hotel, but we found ourselves in the best! The room was very British, as was the little hotel, but it wanted for nothing. The bed was wonderful, bathroom modern, air conditioning fabulous (we arrived during London's heat wave!) and the service im...

Boutique Hotel in Great Location - user review
Charming boutique hotel in great location near the British Museam and Euston Railway station. Our room was small, but contained all the necessary comforts. We would defin...

Too little, too late - user review
I booked a single room for six nights and a double room for one night. The single room was clean but extremely small and the bathroom sink was too tiny to use for anything other than brushing teeth. I had to ask twice for additional hangers and an ironing board. The in room bar appeared to have not ...

Was pleasantly suprised - user review
I chose the Academy because of the fact it was on the same block of where our son was spending his fall semester in London. I had also read great reviews of it, and I agree with all of the positive ones that I read. The hotel is small and personal, with a wondeful attentive staff who would inquire e...

Great Charm - user review
Overall, a really lovely hotel; nice location in Bloomsbury. It was very hot during our stay so we were very pleased to find air conditioning in our room. It did make noise during the night but it was worth it. Note: the hotel does not have a lift; you may end up carrying your luggage up four floors...

Very nice hotel - user review
Room is very small but clean. Service is good, very accomodating staff. Breakfast, and everything else that is extra(i.e. mini bar, dry cleaning, room service) is very expensive, like everything else in London. No elevator, so prepare to ...

Cozy Nook in Great London Location - user review
Steps from the British Museum, theatres, and many wonderful restaurants, this hotel is perfect for the business or pleasure visitor. While the room is small, it is perfectly decorated with true English charm and a modern luxurious bathroom. The air conditioning was great as we were there in the midd...

Great value. Quiet, calm location, but near it all - user review
The staff was wonderful and the location was great. The area was quiet and we were a tube stop away from all the action. The hotel and the room was charming. Breakfast was not included and the pillows were oh, so flat. Everything else was just perfect. Exceptional value. I will stay here the next I ...

Charming Hotel - user review
This hotel is rather small, but quite charming. The rooms at the back are quieter and overlook the garden. We had a room on the street side and London police sirens were heard a lot on the weekends. The staff was very polite and the rooms were comfortable. The coffee provided in the rooms is Nescafe...

Excellent, with One Reservation - user review
This is a superbly appointed and maintained hotel. Our room was tasteful and spacious. It was also blessedly air conditioned (we were in London during a ferocious heat wave). Our bed was luxuriously comfortable, the bathroom on the small side, but manageable. The reservation: the inevitable price on...

Room 56 is a box and not worth the money - user review
very disappointed in the room all they could offer is a free breakfast, as I do not eat breakfast it was rea...

Would go back - user review
We thought the location was perfect. It was close to the Goodge St tube stop on the Northern line which provided easy access to everywhere...we took it to the train station to get to Windsor castle, the Piccadilly line for VERY easy return to Heathrow airport...do this rather than the train & tube r...

Great location! - user review
Wonderful location, close to the British Museum and London theatres! Air conditionig was not really working though, and in the middle of the English heat wave, that was tough! Staff was very pleasant. I would definately stay there again an...

Well situated, well kept - user review
The Academy was a nice change from the typical London tourist hotel. Situated not far from SoHo and the main transit hub at Tottenham Court Road, the hotel and it's surroundi...

Many Issues - user review
The room was four flights up and was very small. There was no hot water after 8 P.M. The front desk staff feigned lack of comprehension regarding this significant problem. Th...

Classic London Town House Hotel - user review
