Bedford offers standard accommodation at a reasonable price. It is a nice and clean hotel and a convenient “base” for moving around (museum, theatres, shopping, etc). It doesn’t provide anything truly special, as a comparative advantage over it rivals but it will surely cover your standard needs without disappointing you. Rooms are in general ok without being extraordinary. The staff... More

The Hotel is conveniently located, a tube entrance a few hundred meters away. If you feel like walking, you can easily reach by foot many interesting places, like the British Museum and Covent Garden, one of my favourite places in London. Prices seem a little better (that is, lower) than hotels of the same category in the same area. Rooms... More

I wouldn't stop here for a romantic vacation. But it's clean and convenient. The rooms are small and the hotel Is noisy. But then it's London. Overall A good hotel. Be particularly nice to the bar staff. I have stayed in most of its sister hotels. This is probably the best.

I stayed here with my daughter and we had a room overlooking the main road. The room was clean and tidy but very hot and we had to have the windows open overnight. This meant it was incredibly noisy. There is no air-conditioning and the hotel does not have a supply of fans. Food was average but the staff were... More

A few months ago, I stayed at a hotel across the road from this one so knew the area. We wanted somewhere central and reasonably comfortable. We were only staying one night so as long as it was clean had comfy beds and a shower we would be content. This hotel ticked all the boxes and more, the staff were... More

Needing to be reasonably close to Euston Station (for travelling down to London) and to the tube system (subway, Metro, or what you will) for travelling around Central London, the Bedford turned out to be an ideal location for me. The hotel is part of the Imperial group of, I think, three hotels all around the Russell Square area. Reception... More

Me and my family stayed 5 night at he beginning of July this year. It is a great location. Close to Russell Square, maybe a 10 minutes walk to the metro station and a good numbers of restaurants near by. We reserved this hotel in March and we were disappointed to have a room over looking the road, who is... More

We have stayed at the Tavistock Hotel, another one in this group, many times and decided to try the slightly more expensive Bedford Hotel. The initial welcome at reception was good although there was a strong smell of fish in the lobby. The room was clean and comfortable with a newly refurbished feel to it, lots of hot water and...

Part of Imperial Hotel Group, smaller than Imperial Hotel though and just 200 metros further. Close to Euston, about 10-15 min walk or 10 quid taxi. Good size, quite small for Hotel in central Lon and staff great. Food basic but great portion sizes, especially staters. I had a 3 fish starter, expected few small pieces of fish. I received... More

This hotel is so convenient for shopping, theatre land, Covent Garden, British Museum, Oxford Street and so much more. All these facilities are within walking distance. Basic but very clean hotel, which was sufficient for my needs. Staff friendly and helpful, particularly the lady showing me to my table for breakfast. I have stayed in 2 other hotels within this...
