Decent room. Lovely breakfast.friendly staff. Walking distance from Kings Cross station, and walking distance to theatres. Just what we wanted. One small problem, was a drain cover in the road opposite hotel banged every time a vehicle hit it.

Stayed for 5 nights with my teenage daughter. I had requested for a quiet room, and it was quiet, facing the garden. The added bonus was hearing birds sing in the morning. Room was spacious, clean, other than that nothing to write home about. Afterwards I realized that it was the only hotel room I forgot to take pictures of.... More

Stayed at the Bedford Hotel for 2 nights beginning of April 2014 - would definitely stay again. Great location - only 10 minute walk from Kings Cross and 15 minutes from Covent Garden and theatreland. Staff were very polite and helpful. Had a problem with a leaky bath, report it and it was fixed the same day. Rooms were very... More

Stayed here as part of a short break and not disappointed. Very good room and good food with really reasonable menu. Professional staff who were most helpful. Worth staying here, that's for sure, if you want a 'no frills' stay and handy for London's attractions.

Had a fine stay at the Bedford Hotel in room 602 for 8 days at the beginning of April. We had got a room at the front (320) initially and asked Ryan at the front desk if we could get a room at the back of the hotel overlooking the courtyard and obliged. Good central area in walking distance to... More

Spent 3 nights here and could not fault it. It was spotless, and the staff friendly, courteous and extremely helpful. Previous reviewers had recommended a room at the back away from the main road which is what we asked for and got. It overlooked a small but lovely garden being tended daily by 2 members of staff. It was just... More

The Bedford Hotel is really a nice hotel for a citytrip to London. The rooms are clean and with enough space for two people. Everyday nice and clean. The people are also very nice and you can use the Wi-Fi for free!

Placed in a very friendly area. Easy acsess to central London and Heathrow. A superb hotel for my needs. I will be back, and have no problems with recomending this hotel to other travellers. However, the windows must be a problem during cold wintwr days, but if you need a hotel to sleep in and a place to have breakfast;... More

I booked this cause of the location and cost. It was fine for my purposes. The staff were a bit hit and miss - some nice and friendly, some grumpy and clearly didn't want to be there. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Bed was really comfy. Breakfast was OK but if you have allergies bring your own bread and milk... More
