I stayed here for 3 nights on my own and I couldn't have picked a more better location. I felt so safe on my own. The hotel was located in an amazingly central location where I could walk everywhere to the famous landmarks and other places. The Madeline station was around the corner and it was only 8mins to Gare... More

The Bedford is located close to Place Madeleine and Boulevard Haussman. Metro stations at Madelaine, St Lazare, Havre-Caumartin and St Augustin are all within easy walking distance. The hotel is very pleasant and has a bar and dining room. My room was spacious and well appointed although I would have appreciated tea/coffee making facilities. Although in a central location Rue...

The Bedfod Hotel is quite central, a few steps from the Madeleine and Haussman boulward, but tucked in a quiet street. The service was great, personal and considerate. Our flight back home was delayed and we granted a 16:00 late checkout, free of charge. We'll be back.

I stayed at the Bedford Hotel in March 2014 for 3 nights. This is a charming hotel tucked away on a quite street in central Paris. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere French chic and calm. The only snag was that I had booked a triple room on the website booking.com, which advertised 3 triple beds. However, upon checking... More

Such a beautiful, quaint and very Parisian hotel. Fantastic location - walking distance to everything, clean, comfortable and very quiet. The service was fantastic-the staff so friendly,and breakfast was such a treat. No hesitation in recommending.

Friendly, amenable staff, and very convenient location to La Madeleine, Concorde, and the Champs Élysées. Although the pics of the lobby and breakfast room are quite nice, and in reality the public space is spacious and charming, the rooms feel a bit 'unwelcoming.' Small, and bare; we paid for a room 'with a view' and the room had a balcony,... More

This hotel is well situated off the tourist track in the Madeline sector. There are good restaurants, pubs, cafe's, stores, public transportation nearby. Although the lobby, reception, and other public areas in the hotel are in excellent condition, the rooms are far from it. The bed was terribly uncomfortable, the rug in the room was old and seemed dirty. There... More

Stayed here because had a conference in Paris. The room wasn't large but as I was alone it didn't matter. Would have been a bit crowded for a couple. The price doesn't include breakfast which costs 21(!) euros, a typical occurrence in Paris. I had my breakfast at Bert's across the street which was just fine and costs half as... More
