Good accommodation in Central London. Clean and pleasant Staff. Very good experience.

The hotel was well placed for our needs.

It was clean and the room was very quiet and quite spacious for Central London. However, it was the quality of the Staff which set this place apart. A problem with the air-con was dealt with and fixed in no time, the check in check out procedure was very quick and efficient and the Staff were helpful and polite. The Breakfast Staff were a delight despite being very busy they were magnificent. If staying in London stay here!

not as expected.need to be fit to climb up to attic

The bed ceertainly seemed kingsize as opposed to queens.The bathroom,minus a bath was minute and in what seemed like a cupboard.The sink was tiny as you often find in downstairs toilets.

Bed not comfortable. On the positive side it was very convenient for the sights of London.

I stayed one night in the hotel in a single room.

Didn't try the breakfast as had to get away early. Nice room, comfortable bed. The reception staff were incredibly helpful. No coffee in room though.

Great room and facilities, beautiful decor, air con and WiFi were a bonus, delicious breakfast, friendly and helpful staff plus the location is absolutely perfect, 15 mins walk to Oxford Street, Covent Garden and Piccadilly Circus.

Great quality at a very good price.

Lovely hotel for a special occasion

We stayed for 2 nights for our anniversary.

Hotel is ideally located to visit the major London attractions. The room was well equipped and comfortable. We had a street level front room and although on a fairly busy road the traffic noise did not really disturb us. Whilst we were there another guest lost their little boy and the staff were brilliant, they dropped everything to ensure the hotel was searched and police informed, little boy was found safe and well. We'll done everyone. Would recommend this hotel for a special occasion.

Excellent Hotel for London show visit

We used the hotel for an overnight stay in London.

The Academy Hotel was only a short walk from our theatre in Soho and in a very upmarket area close to the British Museum. The hotel has lots of character with very cosy rooms and a lovely walled garden. The staff make you feel at home and I would definitely visit again.
