This visit the hotel has had a refurbishment and what a difference, the reception bar and dining area so fresh and bright. On a dry day the outside seating are is great you would not know you were in he heart of London. All... More

I needed to move out of my flat which is located down the road from the Bedford Hotel while it was being painted. My stay at the Bedford was great. The room was very comfortable and I loved the view out of my window looking directly into Cosmo Place. The staff, without exception, couldn't have been more helpful and friendly..... More

We stayed overnight as part of a theatre break and have nothing but praise for this hotel. Check-in was quick and all the staff we encountered were courteous, friendly and helpful. We had requested a "quiet" room and were given one at the back of the hotel overlooking a beautifully designed garden / seating area. The twin room was nicely... More

Just had 3 nights at this lovely hotel. Came here on the recommendation of my neighbour. What a good choice. We upgraded to an executive room, so much space with bathroom that had a lovely walk in shower and bath with overhead shower. We were at the front of the hotel although we had requested if possible a room at... More

I spent 3 nights at the Bedford Hotel, July 1-4. I found it very comfortable, great location (Bloomsbury), nice breakfast (and for some reason, I got the full English breakfast, not the continental I had reserved--a nice break!). I reserved because of the relatively low (for London) price and the excellent location. I got a single room (it had a... More

Had to attend Great Ormond Street hospital and stayed at the Bedford hotel for 2 nights. Bedrooms were nice and clean. Staff were very friendly and expressed concern for my wellbeing. We also parked at the hotel, which was located under the hotel and was secure. Would definitely stay here again. Nice base for getting to all major tourist points,... More

Just had a 2 night break at the Bedford Hotel and we were both really happy with our stay. Friendly staff at check-in and at breakfast and the service was very fast too.

We have just had two nights at the Bedford Hotel. We have stayed at this hotel before as it is very convenient to Euston station and also the theatres on Shaftesbury Ave(about 20 mins walking). The hotel has recently been updated and the bar/dining room area have been very tastefully refurbished. There is also a lovely garden to sit in... More

I'm a Londoner myself who has to sometimes stay in town for business because I live out in the suburbs now. So I know London and its hotels very well. I think the Bedford is an undiscovered gem and very good value for money considering its convenient location. there are a lot of grim tourist hotels around this area, that... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the Bedford Hotel, peace and quiet is our priority. With the elegant bustle of Bloomsbury on every side, that might sound like an impossible task. Covent Garden and the West End are just a short walk away, and the British Museum is on our doorstep. But at the Bedford, we can promise you a good night's sleep too. How do we do it? Well, many of the rooms overlook our picturesque private garden. The Bedford is small and intimate, offering a warm welcome with a personal touch. And it's a great place to relax with company too, with a charming guest lounge and laid back café occupying the ground floor. Meanwhile, the Bedford Garden restaurant serves home-made British specialities, with a modern twist, overlooking our secret garden. We're able to offer a little corner of traditional English tranquility, here, in a bustling, international city. It's made us a firm favourite with returning guests. ... more   less
