The newest addition to YTL Hotels is The Academy Hotel London, a collection of five Georgian townhouses combined into one charming luxurious boutique hotel with rejuvenated 50 bedrooms and suites, located in the heart of Bloomsbury in London’s star studded West End.
Travellers may start booking their stay at The Academy that juxtaposes timeless glamour and traditional, with a modern, comfortable city style to create a contemporary take on townhouse living, but in the meantime, you may already get a taste of what the hotel and Bloomsbury has to offer – right in our backyard in Kuala Lumpur!
The Academy’s sister YTL hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Hotel Stripes celebrates this season of joy with Stripes Meets Bloomsbury, a series of dining experiences at its food and beverage outlets over the festive season that pays tribute to the lives and loves of the Bloomsbury Set – a group of associated English writers, intellectuals, philosophers and artists in the first half of the 20th century, who embraced life to the fullest, in the pursuit of knowledge, romance and delightful experiences.
