We stayed at this hotel 2 years ago and it was very much like all the other 3* hotels in the area. It was dated but otherwise very clean. We decided to stay this July because of it's location, we prefer the Russell Square area. The staff were very friendly and helpful, bringing a spare chair to the room so... More

We had a room facing the gardens in the back so there was always a breeze coming through our open windows. Vintage but nice and clean. Free breakfast was convenient and good. Close proximity to everything we wanted to do. Staff was courteous and helpful. We would stay here again.

I have just returned from my first ever visit to London. The Bedford Hotel is in a very good location an easy walk (even with cases) from Euston Station, a short walk from the Holborn tube station and just a few streets away from the British Museum. The hotel is clean and the twin room I had was spacious and... More

Although the hotel is showing its age now, the rooms are spacious comfortable and clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The problem over our booking was quickly resolved. There is no air conditioning so it's best to ask for a room at the rear overlooking the garden. Breakfasts are average. A great location though close to Euston Station,... More

Our stay at the Bedford was not very enjoyable - fortunately it was only for one night. The room itself was clean and tidy but it was so hot and stuffy, even with the windows wide open. No air con and no fan - getting ready to go out was a nightmare because of the heat and luckily we had... More

The location is within walking distance (20 minutes) of the west end theatre district. I did not need to use the underground after arrival. Located on the Piccadilly Line which goes directly to Heathrow. Room was okay, everything clean. I asked for a quiet room and received one higher up and facing away from the road; it was surprisingly quiet.... More

Just back from a two night stay at the Bedford, this is our 2nd stay at the hotel. Although conveniently placed & central, the hotel is a little dated. Room was comfortable enough but the lack of air conditioning did mean the window had to be left open. Staff generally O.K & service fine. We would consider using the hotel... More

This hotel was recommended to me my by Father - I was a bit sceptical since his needs are very different to mine, however the room cost was good for just my daughter and I. I think this hotel has 2 major bonuses - the location and room size. For most hotels in this price range, guests complain about pokey... More

A great hotel well located near the Soho district. A vintage hotel still using real keys for the hotel rooms. Great rooms with plenty of space and wonderful garden view. Staff was tremendous. The hotel would need a little bit of a refresh on the paint and carpets but cleaniness was good. The hotel has a nice restaurant and included... More
