Location room breakfast
Run down furniture, small bathroom, dirty curtains, no elevator. Some of the staff very nice, helpfull and smiling but others not so. Overpriced for what it offers.
Comfort and size of the room
Decoration could be updated
We thought the location was good. The bed was lovely and comfortable. Our room was very nice, a good size.
We had stayed at this hotel before and this was why we chose it again. However we did have a problem in booking the room online and had to call the hotel direct. Simone was helpful and upgraded us to a suite for our inconvenience which was lovely as this was a treat for my husbands birthday
Small room (14) Should be a single. However it did have everything we needed.
Location Breakfast Staff Able to leave luggage Front reception so friendly and welcoming
Would have liked to stay another night
OK breakfast, nice staff. Cute, boutique like hotel. Can walk in 15 min to Leistersquare area. 5 min walk to British museum, Russelsquare st and park and several universities. Surrounding area very lovely.
Rooms small for what you pay. Bathroom had a constant strange smell. Had to buy an air freshener. Poor soundproofing to hallway. Our first room was bigger but unfortunately facing the busy Gover street. Luckily we could change rooms the next day.
Very good, staff very profesional and perfect location
We got there at night and booking.com didn´t comunicate the booking done a week before, and there was only one bedroom available. We were four so, after trying to find another hotel in the area (no rooms available in the 15 nearest we asked) the manager of the hotel decided to adapt a suite for the four. At the end two of us slept in a couch. I would say booking.com did a big mistake, for now in advance I will call the hotel to confirm if I use them again. Booking just sent an email to the hotel justifying the fault due a servers mistake and thats it... dissapointing.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, close to all you want to do, and still in a quiet area. Lots of good restaurants closeby, (serving full english breakfast for around 5 GBP - hotel breakfast was 15...). Good communications to a lot of destinations. Underground at a walking distance.
The "free wi-fi" is limited and sometimes not working at all. No elevator. Booking twin room is not a guarantee for getting one. The rooms and doors are not well isolated, meaning you hear everything your neighbours do. Tiny bathroom.
The fact that our room was not made up/ cleaned when we were out!
Great location, very central to everything you need to do or see in London. Comfortable accommodation and very polite and hospitable staff.
TV reception was poor and single bed room was very small.
bacon and egg sandwhich for breakfast
room and toilet/shower a bit pokey
The staff was very helpful, the location is great; walking distance to oxford street and covent garden. More qualities than flaws, would stay again.
Poor continental breakfast, not worth the price. And the walls are so thin you wake up with the guests next door.
Excellent Location ..good service..friendly staff.
Rooms are not like photos.. Needs refurbishing..v small bathroom..no elevator
We stayed for 3 days and even for the short time we got an upgrate to a suite. Thank you so much! We had a nice stay, a quit room, good w-lan. The Hotel is in a good area not far from the tube station and the National Museum
there was no kettle in the room
Location, staff, mattress was awesome!
The odor of the room. It smelled wet and dirty.
The rooms are looking a little tired
The wifi would not connect to my iphone or ipad
the location was excellent and the connection to Heathrow very easy. we enjoyed being able to walk to just about everywhere we wanted to go. the breakfast is adequate although the selection limited. overall would go back
the room was excessively hot, we had to run the a/c in late Sept. the bathroom was aged; leaking taps, dripping shower, broken toilet roll holders. not what you would expect at a 300GBP a night facility. the creaking floor boards reverberate through the building!
Charming and confortable. They bring your luggage upstairs.
Quite a few staircases, but OK if you are normally fit. A lot of pluming and water noises in the morning.
Friendly staff accomodating your request. location is great
must have umbrellas to borrow, every time i come to London i have to buy one
My boyfriend and I were looking to stay 1 night in London, as central as possible without spending a fortune. Out quote was £119. The Academy is only a 10 minute walk from oxford street and everything London has to offer. The room was a great size, free 24 hour WIFI, air con and we could not have left happier after our stay. I would definitely recommend The Academy and I will be booking with them again.
We have stayed at the Academy previously and love the location, the garden, library, and wonderful, very helpful staff. Great boutique hotel with fantastic location-- close to good restaurants, British Museum, shopping, Covent Garden, etc. We will be back.
We travel a great deal and found the bed to be a bit hard but the room was otherwise quite nice. Maybe some updating of the bathroom would make the experience even better.
