Close to the British Museum and within walking distance of Covent Garden, this intimate and inexpensive hotel is handy to London's top locations. Located in Bloomsbury, just a few minutes' walk from Russell Square tube, Bedford Hotel is a short ride from Soho and The Strand. The hotel features a quiet garden and bright, modestly decorated rooms that overlook either the garden or the pretty Southampton Row. The hotel is in a desirable location, being close enough to the West End and the South Bank to walk (not that public transport isn't right at the door), and the immediate vicinity offers up plenty of dining and drinking options. Even the Savoy isn't that far away, if high-priced pots of tea and cucumber sandwiches are in order. Close to the British Museum and within walking distance of Covent Garden, this intimate and ... see more

clean no-frills hotel

location is convenient to Russell Square area
Hotel staff are friendly, and the room was clean. The bath was new and hot water plentiful with water pressure good on the 5th floor. Room was smoke-free, carpet was new. Bath products provided were insufficient. There is no tissue box in the room. The rooms on the street side of the hotel are noisy, so ask for a garden-side room to avoid the noise.

Super stay

Centrally situated, reasonably near Underground, clean, friendly staff, nice size rooms with cupboards and drawers.
Havindg stayed in the general area before but never at Bedford we found the hotel at Agodo by searching for the best offer on the net.It turned out to be a lucky strike. Nice, if somewhat oldfashioned, hotel near Holborn Underground. Like many of the smaller hotels in London the hallways semmed a bit dinghy, but that's an aside. The rooms are a nice size with a table and chairs, and there are plenty of cupboard and drawer space. The furniture is rather oldfashioned but functional. The bathroom is more modern and is quite roomy compared to some. The beds are somwhat short, and the matresses seemed a bit worn, you could feel the springs, but didn't notice them while sleeping, especially after having been to a very nice pub, The Swann, just down a side street directly opposite the hotel The staff is very helpfull and friendly, we even got english breakfast free on sunday, though we did point out the fact at check out. The basic price is with the usual horrible british version of continental breakfast, whitch no selfrespecting hotel actually on the continent, however small, would serve. All in all a most pleasant stay, and we certainly intend to stay at this hotel again.
Restaurant Tip: Super surprice. Unfortunately I don't remember the name or the adress of the restaurant, but it's on the left side of either Bloomsbury Way or New Oxford street very close to where they split going east. It's a Thai buffet with lost of hot dishes, noodles, rice, veg., sallads rolls etc, all delicious. The surprice is twofold, £5.95 for all you can eat, and it's all vegetarian or even vegan, the different kinds of meat are all soy protein but with different textures, and you would never guess if not forwarned. Definitely worth looking for.

This hotel -

Good location in central London.
The room is old and the heater doesn't work - it's freezing ! Need to move to another room three times within 2 nights ! Not worth for money at all. Poor service. No operator to pick up the call in the evening, imagine if you have an emergency call from outside.

Bedford Hotel, Southampton Row, London

Location; Very attractive outdoor smoking area; Basement car park with discount.
The hotel is in a great location. Only minutes walking distance from Russel Square, The British Museum, Covent Garden and many West End Theatres. Although rated as three star the facilities would warrant four stars. Large bedrooms with tea and coffee, television and hair dryer and good sized bathrooms. Breakfast buffet was excellent and very courteous staff.
Restaurant Tip: Pizza Express directly opposite hotel.

Good for the traveler on a budget

Great location - right around corner from British Museum, lots of delicious restaurants right across the street. Try the Hason Raja for some great Indian food! Walking distance (approx. 15 - 20 min) from lots of great attractions, including Trafalgar Square and National Gallery.
The Bedford is excellent for the traveler on a budget who doesn't plan on spending much time in his/her hotel room. It is walking distance from many great attractions, from the British Museum (right around the corner!) to Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery (15-20 minute walk, depending on your pace). There are also lots of delicious restaurants right across the street from the Bedford, which was perfect when we were hungry and weren't sure where to go. Try the Hason Raja for some fantastic Indian food! The hotel isn't particularly attractive (much of the decor is clearly from when it was built in the 1970s), and the street outside can be quite loud at night if you want to have your windows open. But, if you're willing to keep the windows closed and only use the room for sleeping and showering, the Bedford is an excellent place for you! The price is certainly fair!
Restaurant Tip: Check out the great restaurants across the street! Quality food and quality service!

City trip à Londres Décembre 2009

Situation par rapport à Oxford street et à la gare de St. Pancras
Charmant hôtel rénové il y a peu de temps. Excellente situation par rapport à la gare Eurostar St. Pancras (10 min. à pied) et par rapport à Oxford Street, une des rues les plus animées et les plus attirantes pour le shopping (également 10 min. à pied de l'hôtel). Il n'est ainsi jamais nécessaire de prendre ni le métro ni le taxi (que je déconseille fortement car ils vous baladent à travers la ville pour faire juste 1 kilomètre).
Shopping Tip: Sortez de l'hôtel, allez vers la droite, première rue à droite, passez devant le british museum, continuez sur 200 mètres et vous êtes déjà sur Oxford Street prêts à faire votre shopping.

Séjour à l'hotel Bedford Londres

Tranquilité, service, petit déjeuner, chambres spatieuses, situation dans Londres.
Charmant hôtel avec jardin dans un quartier très animé de Londres. A 10 minutes à pied de la gare St. Pancras (Eurostar/Thalys) et à 10/15 minutes à pied d'Oxford street et ses splendides magasins ainsi que de Soho et Piccadily Circus. A recommander essentiellement pour sa situation dans la ville. Pas besoin de prendre un taxi ou le métro pour se rendre d'un point à un autre.
Nightlife Tip: A conseiller pour ceux qui aiment sortir. Le café/restaurant Balans dans Soho et la Discothèque Lo Profile également dans Soho.

Godt centralt hotel

God beligghenhed, pris, venlig betjening, rent
Glimrende hotel til prisen, rimeligt centralt i London, nær undergrundsstation,, ikke langt fra Oxford Street. Lidt gammeldags i indtrykket, men rent og hyggeligt, med venlig betjening. Morgenmaden er desværre den evindelige Continental Breakfast, som intet hotel på kontinentet ville være bekendr at servere for sine gæster, medmindre man betaler en del ekstra. Der ligger en hyggelig pub i en lille sidegade overfor hotellet, som er ved at blive vores stampub. Vil helt bestemt benytte hotellet igen.
Travel tip: Når man skal omkring i London er det nemmest at købe Oystercard hjemmefra på London Transport's hjemmeside, det er lidt dyrer end med dagskort, fordi der er tidspunkter hvor man ikke får rabat, men til gengæld slipper man for krøllede dagsbiletter som ikke vil gå i maskinen.
