    Historical Traveler Reviews Bedford Hotel London

    Decent value hotel


    Nice lobby and common areas in and outside the hotel. There's a beautiful fountain and flower garden in the back. The rooms are very basic and fairly clean. We stayed with two other couples in three separate rooms. Our room was the cleanest and most functional. The other couples complained of the dust bunnies in the bathroom and shower that worked at a trickle. We didn't have those issues. All in all, the Bedford is the best value in the area and close to theatre district and Covent Garden.

    Straightforward hotel


    The Bedford is a straightforward 3 star hotel, good location, everything works, but nothing fancy. I had a clean single room, with full bath, lots of hot water, comfortable bed and ordinary TV. Breakfast was unimaginative, but edible enough. You get this type of hotel cheaper in other cities, but the Bedford is good enough value for Central London.

    Great value


    At first sight, this seems a hotel that time forgot, it has metal framed windows, old style radiators and illuminated sign outside proclaiming "Single room £71". On check in, you get an old fashioned key attached to long metal rod so you have to hand it in to reception when leaving the hotel - there is no chance of walking out with it in your pocket. It's been a while since I last had a hotel key as opposed to an electronic card.

    Great location at an excellent price - but only for two.


    We were delighted with the Bedford. Right on Russel Square, buses right out the front and a ten minute bus ride to Trafalgar Square and a five minute walk to the Piccadilly Line tube station. The rooms have ensuite shower and toilet and wardrobing however they are fairly small (very common in London) and very much a stretch if you try to squeeze in that 3rd person on the rollaway bed! The rooms were spotlessly clean and we had a view of the nice little garden behind the hotel.

    They do a great breakfast and its well worth the money. The ladies in the dining room were gorgeous - we wanted to take one home with us!

    Very decent hotel


    I stayed at the Bedford for almost a week in June, and was very satisfied. Because they were rennovating rooms on the floor of my original booking, I requested another room, away from the noise, and was promptly moved. Very friendly staff. Well located for tube stop, and walking to West End. Lots of good places to eat nearby, and a Safeway within five minutes for take out food. I would easily stay here again. Strongly suggest requesting room facing the back, as noise on street side could be a problem. All in all, one of the best budget price hotels I have stayed in on trips to London.

    Good Value, Good Location (repeat customer)


    I've been staying at the Bedford on occasional visits to London for several years now. It is one of the most reasonably priced hotels you'll find with a private bath and a decent location. It is not the Ritz, and the rooms are small...But I go to London to see things other than the inside of the hotel room. If you want to lounge around, find another hotel. Staff has always been helpful. TV channels are limited. Rooms in the back are quieter, and from the upper floors you can see the new dome at the BM. Continental breakfast in included. English breakfast is available or is part of your package. There is a bar and restaurant on the premises as well.

    Nice hotel


    The hotel is old fashioned and comfortable. Very quiet. Even though they told us that it was at 80% of occupancy we never suffered the crowds. The room was clean with a TV , hairdryer and a jar to boil water. We always found coffee, tea and milk to prepare something to drink. There are no minibar or refrigerator. The bathroom is complete with a bathtub. Breakfast was in the coffee shop in the ground floor. We took the continental which was not very varied. Only juice and toasts. Location was very good. A couple of blocks from tube station Russell Square or Holborn. Around the hotel, restaurants (including pizza hut, Subway's and english and italian restaurants) and also shops (super markets "tescos", bookshops, etc). Reception staff was not very warm and friendly. I recomend the hotel. If you are travelling in summer please ask about air conditioning. I really don't know how it works.

    Nothing Special - But Decent Price


    we stayed here for two nights on short trip to london. we booked the room via the hotels internet site which was very easy to use.

    A very friendly good value hotel!


    i stay in the Bedford every time i visit london it is alot better than the majority of hotels i have stayed at for a reasonable price! it is in a really nice safe area within walking distance of all the theatres and shops and has good links to stations and airports. Reception staff are very friendly and always show in an interest in you as a guest and make you feel welcome - rooms are a good size and clean and warm, although the bathrooms are quite small, i prefer to stay on the front of the hotel as you get a view of what is a very nice area, windows are double glazed so not noisy at wont regret booking the Bedford for a good value stay in London

    Room okay, breakfast disappointing
