For a 4-star boutique stay, steps from the British Museum and 15 minutes on foot from Leicester Square, you can't beat The Academy Hotel. You'll be treated to perks like free WiFi and shoeshines, and can enjoy an elegant traditional afternoon tea in the private garden.
Pizzas, sandwiches, and Thai curry are on the menu at Alchemy, the hotel's onsite restaurant. You can start your day off with either the continental or full English breakfast.
You'll be greeted with fruit and tea on arrival at your guestroom, which features a lovely, restored Georgian interior. Before surfing the channels on your flat-screen TV, you can grab a drink from the minibar or brew a fresh cup of coffee.
Room service is available 24 hours per day. If you're looking for peace and quiet, you can relax with a book in the hotel's library.
Goodge Street Tube Station is a 4-minute walk away, and you can reach Covent Garden on foot in 15 minutes. The eye-popping shops that line Oxford Street and Bond Street are less than a 20-minute stroll.
