Returned to the Academy after 5 years to try one of the suites for 2 nights. Good sized room with huge bed and reasonable bathroom. Comfortable sofa and flat screen TV and minibar made for relaxing time between our commitments, and the Nespresso coffee machine and kettle/teas were nice touches. We were concerned about traffic noise as the suites are located at the front of the hotel and we live in the depths of the country, however we slept well although you can hear background traffic noise through the double glazed windows things are fairly quiet during the night. Staff were helpful, but breakfast was slightly disappointing for the price, so on second day we popped around the corner to have breakfast in one of the nearby coffee shops which worked well. This location in Bloomsbury is great for walking to theatres, restaurants and museums and if needed, buses are plentiful and easy to use in conjunction with iPhone app "Citymapper" . Overall, I would return for an overnight stay but might revert to the standard bedrooms as these are quiet and less expensive but do not have any seating.
