Centrally located.Hotel undergoing external renovation so entrance obscured. Bar and foyer freshly decorated. However the corridors are still dated. Room access with key which is fine but ridiculously large key chain - A foot long metal rod!. The room is small and bathroom not great. Shower curtain hooks missing. Suitable for one night stay and unlikely to return.

Stayed here for one night and downstairs in bar and restaurant the hotel is pretty nice, however the bedrooms are not that great at all. Our room was fairly small but the issues were that the old style metal windows allowed a mini gale to blow through all night making it pretty uncomfortable, also within the wardrobe there is an...

We booked the Bedford for an overnight stay as part of my wife's 60th birthday celebrations. We chose the hotel because of ease of access from the M40/A40, quite simply drive into London turn right and within five minutes you are there, and because it has its own underground car park. The hotel is currently undergoing refurbishment but this did...

The location is very nice, close to Holborn underground station and the British Musuem. Both of these are within walking distance (5-10 minutes). The weakest point is the bathroom. Poeple over a normal BMI cannot use the bathroom, I guess. Wall insulation was bad. Breakfast is OK and there is also a safe deposit box. It was clean. Good option...

We only had a weekend in London so decided to stay in a centric hotel to be in zone 1 and avoid underground. Location is good but room was not clean at all, night receptionists could be nicer and breakfast was just fine.

Neighbourhood 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
