A four-star Luxury Hotel in Bloomsbury

The Academy Hotel is an elegant 49-room hotel in Bloomsbury, London. Made up of five properties, this restored Georgian building keeps in touch with the past but with a twist of modern luxury. Comfortable rooms and fine interiors allow for a space of calm from busy London — but the location means you’re close enough to access the best West End attractions a short walk from UCL London, the British Museum and within easy reach of Regent’s Park.


Restaurant & Kitchen closure

Please be informed that due to essential maintenance work during our renovation of the Hotel, both the Restaurant & Kitchen will be closed until the end of March 2018. Unfortunately we will be unable to serve any Hot food. We will offer a limited continental breakfast selection as a takeout option. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused during this period.


Guest Reviews

"Fantastic Staff"

"…I stayed for one night last week and I was really impressed by their staff's friendliness. The receptionist could not have been more obliging and really helped me out when I needed to print and scan some important documents for work. The manager also offered to help.…"


"…Charming feel of the Georgian Britain in convenient and central location…"

"Highly Recommended"

"…Amazing Amazing Amazing! I have to give my sincere thankfulness to one of the staff there, Mr. Roy Ball. Whenever I have any problem or help, he would always help me out as soon as he can.  Smile is the biggest sign of this hotel. During my stay, my days started with breakfast ladies' "good morning" and finished with receptionist's warm greeting. I highly recommend this hotel as it make you feel you are at your sweet home!…"

"Afternoon Tea"

"…Part of that haven was the beautiful outdoor garden in the back. I would gladly stay here again and again.…"

"Perfect location for a London Getaway"

"…When you enter you are warmly welcomed by the nice and helpful staff. I was friendly guided to my room where the music already playing when entering and, it gave me a lovely feeling as I was excited to start our weekend London! The location is just perfect and we loved our stay at the Academy and would definitely come back.…"
