The Academy goes for the country intellectual look, in keeping with Bloomsbury’s studious yet decadent history. It’s made up of five Georgian townhouses, and provides in all its rooms a tranquil generosity of space that’s echoed in the Georgian squares sitting serenely between the arterial traffic rush of Gower Street and Tottenham Court Road. There’s a restrained country-house stylishness in summery florals and checks, and a breath of sophistication in the handsome, more plainly furnished suites. The library and conservatory open on to fragrant walled gardens, the ideal place for the drinks and breakfast that are served there during the summer.

I stayed at the hotel (room 24) for a night when the tube strike was happening. Got the room for £100 which did not include Breakfast. The room was small but the bed was comfortable and clean. The en-suite was really tiny but again served the purpose. The Bar downstairs is awful and when I popped down nobody was there (customers or staff) instead I went outside the hotel for food and drink. Carpets in the room had past their best but all in all this is a good option for a one night stay in a very central location. I would return. Air-conditioning was good and the room was nice and quiet.
