Very welcoming hotel. The suites were good value and for the price, perfect for our family of four (sofa bed in living room). The kitchenette and dining table meant that when the jet lag kicked in, we could bring the kids home for take away and an early night. Similarly the early starts were more manageable with a bit more... More

Bedford hotel is on East 40th street, in midtown east, Manhattan, 2 mins walk to Grand Central on 42th str, and approx 10 mins to Broadway. Rooms are large, and beds are huuuuuge. But would really prefer softer madrass! Bathroom is ok. The rooms have TV, refridgerator, coffeemaker and microwave (?), and lots of closetspace. Free wifi with good coverage... More

Perfect location so central & handy to everywhere! Room was perfect, exactly what we needed! I couldn't fault anything about this hotel, it was everything we needed & more, what I did love was that we were celebrating my sisters 30th & they left mugs for her as a present! Highly recommend & I would definitely stay here again!!!

Very good place, extremely well situated : near Grand Central , at a 10 minutes walk from Times Square, 15 min from The Empire State Building. The suite we has was just super for the four of us ! Very convenient little kitchen. Not the least, just at the corner of the street, the cosy Bloom's Cafe Delicatessen, where you... More

If you're looking for an affordable, spacious hotel that's an easy walk to Grand Central and transit, then the Hotel Bedford is just the right place. Stayed here with my family early this year and found the location convenient, and the hotel room spacious. We definitely would consider staying here again.

I stayed at the Bedford Hotel with a group of 17 college students and I was impressed by the hotel. I stayed in a room with three other girls, in our room tree was two double sofa beds and two single beds. The beds were clean and comfy. Overall the room was extremely comfortable, it was old fashioned but it... More

A good central hotel, not far from grand central station and times square. In was only on new York for 5 days, so a good hotel to just crash after a long day exploring. Staff are very friendly and willing to help.
