Great location, lovely place to stay
very nice hotel, accommodating and pleasant staff. Their wi-fi is definitely below par and the only real downside of my experience

Good3.0 / 5
The service is very good, but the rooms are very dated. Internet did not work properly and the staff was unable to do anything about it. The room codes were supposed to work for 24h, but only worked for 1h. I gave up after a while, because the overhead of setting up the connection all the time was too much.

Not bad, not good
The Wifi service was inconsistent. No help with luggage from the 4th floor at 6 AM in the morning.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Wonderful Stay at the Academy
The hotel was beautifully comfortable and snug. Check-in was fast and efficient, and the lady (I forgot her name) was very friendly and helpful. I left my luggage for storage while I went out. When I came back, another check-in person was at the desk, and he was really helpful and brought my luggage up for me to my room. The excellent customer service was continued with the other hotel personnel, from the ladies at the continental breakfast, to the bellhops. The hotel location was perfect, close to all the sights as well as strategic tube stations (Russell Square!). The hotel is also close to lots of restaurant and pub options, as well as convenience stores like the Co-Op. I will definitely stay here again next time I am in London!
