“Good place to visit the old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We stayed just one night, but we can say that this is a good hotel. It is located in the old town with easy access to most of the sights to see. We had a nice and clean room that was also quiet, although the window looked to the street. The restaurant served good food. The breakfast was simple.

We visited Brussels in April and stayed at this hotel. The hotel itself is quite nice and included in the price was a breakfast every morning which was quite nice. The room was large and clean. Staff was very friendly. It was in an excellent location a few blocks from the centerpiece of Brussels, the Grand Place. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed at the Bedford for 3 nights in December, the location is excellent for the main sights, 5 mins to Grand Place with all it's quaint streets and shops. we took a travel kettle which was very useful as there were no facilities in the room and as it's location was so good we could call back in for coffee during the day without walking miles to get back. The room was a good size and had a small fridge, bed was very comfy the main drawback for us was the renovation work going on upstairs on the 6th floor, this started at 8am with banging and the sound of rubble dropping down in the wall cavity, when we asked what was going on at reception the man said everyone had been informed of the work but we knew nothing about it, when we called back during the day there was drilling and banging, which did spoil any chance of relaxing after a long walk round the city.
The breakfast was good with enough choice for everyone but there were not enough tables and on the first morning we had to clear a table of dirty plates ourselves, breakfast should be relaxing but they failed as the atmosphere was one of stress, why we were given tickets to get in but nobody collected them I don't know! On the second day they had a different breakfast room open which was even worse, tables only seated 8 people so breakfast with strangers who didn't speak English and the awkward smiles and indecision of who to sit with! half the tables had reserved cards on them but nobody arrived to sit at them, very strange.
Sure the hotel when finished will be very good but they need to improve the breakfast rooms.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering it, it is beautifully presented very clean and the staff very very friendly and helpful. The beds were so comfortable specially the pillows and duvet. There was a good selection of food at breakfast. The hotel is walking distance from the train station and into town we did the walk several times and different times of the day and always felt safe.

We arrived at the hotel and approached reception, not a smile in site. We had a choice of a twin room, non smoking or a double room, smoking. We looked the smoking room and it was clean but was two single beds pushed together with two separate quilts.

There was no tea, coffee or water available in the rooms.

The breakfast food was good but the dinning room was rammed full and long queues to get to the food.

Would I come here again? I think I'd look around to see what's on offer!

On arriving in Brussels we were told by our airline the flight home from Brussels was cancelled due to strike action by transport workers. We checked the hotel we were staying in and found the price to be in the region of £200 per night room only. Using a comparison website we found this hotel for just over 100 euros including breakfast. Not sure what to expect we were really surprised when we turned up. Whilst it looks nothing from the street once inside it is a luxury hotel. Reception staff were very friendly and the room extremely well appointed. Not sure about the soap and all bathroom products being 'orange' flavour but that is being picky. Staff mentioned breakfast times and when we checked the booking it was included. After a very good nights sleep we had breakfast which was good. Well worth the money.

This is the third or fourth time I've stayed at the Bedford, and have been happy with it each time. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable, the service nice and the breakfast pretty standard stuff, but perfectly adequate. The location is very good, close to all the major landmarks and I would certainly return.
