The Academy

A cute and compact townhouse in the middle of Bloomsbury.

Aptly named, given its proximity to London University and the British Museum, this hotel boasts reasonable rates that make it a firm favorite with many visitors. Originally three Georgian houses, it's an old-fashioned building, but has been brought bang-up-to-date. Service is efficient and friendly. Public areas include The Library Garden and The Conservatory Garden. Bedrooms, which vary in size, are pretty with pastel shades and hung with good fabrics. Some beds are half-testers with fabrics draped from the wall to both sides of the bed. Bathrooms are en-suite, except in a few singles, and are done in marble. Keep in mind that some are very small. If you want a quiet room, ask for a bedroom looking over the back. The owner has a good eye for artwork, and paintings are hung everywhere. All in all, this is a solid choice in an excellent location.
