In January 2015, it was the second time I stayed in this hotel and for the second time I am satisfied about my stay. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and the room was well furnished. The location of the hotel is good as well: quite close to the underground station and there are lot of restaurants in... More

I stayed one night in this hotel, and one night was more than enough. The single rooms are like a prison cell but smaller. Although clean the decor was tired and dated. The 1960 single glaze metal famed windows neither keep the cold out or look good. The staff are very friendly and helpful, but I would suggest only using... More

We had everything we needed, and had a comfortable sleep. Location is very convenient. Breakfast had plenty of options and... More

No complaints but skip the breakfast! Rooms clean and comfortable bedding. Renovated bathroom and separated toilet. Rooms at the back like any other hotel in London, less noise than at the front but never silent.

This was our 3rd visit to The Bedford, hotel in brilliant location, rooms very clean, full English breakfast sets you up for a days sightseeing or shopping, and the bar prices were the cheapest we paid, will return again next year.

Lovely central location for Holborn/Bloomsbury/Euston/Covent Garden areas. Comfortable and nice staff at reception and in the breakfast room. Convenience and car parking worked perfectly for my reason for staying, close by my place of work and for departing in the evening to travel to North London.

The Bedford Hotel is a good mid-range hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful .The corridors are a little tired, but the rooms are clean and comfortable if a little on the small side.

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
