Reviewed 3 August 2013

We spent six fast-paced days in Paris using Hotel Bedford as our base. It's an excellent neighborhood, quiet with one or two embassies nearby. Very close to the Metro and Rue St. Honore, the location is really perfect. The rooms are nice, very clean and efficient. Nice bathroom and good quality amenities in the bath. The staff was quite nice and accommodating. I recommend highly!

Room Tip: We stayed on the top level, father away from street noise which is nice. M

Near many cafes and restaurants, the "hop on hop off" tour bus stop and Metro at the Madeleine, small grocery markets and great shopping...all walking distance. Rooms clean and well-appointed, staff friendly and helpful. Definitely a Paris "boutique hotel" feel! On a quiet street and hotel itself quiet. Best was the Bedford was exactly as the pictures showed. If in Paris again, this hotel will be my first choice!

Very tidy, classy place. Staff and Service were very good. After 7 visits to Paris I would say the rooms are a little bigger here at the Bedford than most. Very quiet street, located not far from Madeleine Metro station and only a short walk to "Les Grand Magasins".

Only aspect that disappointed was the "Petit Dejeuner" buffet. In my view a little too expensive with little variety - no hot options.

This was my second stay at the Hotel Bedford. I was very satisfied.

It is clean and well appointed. Perhaps the most appealing thing was the old-fashioned touch of having real room keys. There is something homely and welcoming about a real key rather than a plastic card to swipe.

Another positive feature was that the staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. Sometimes people grumble about the French, but the staff at Hotel Bedford were obliging and friendly.

Finally free wifi throughout is also a benefit which other hotels are mean about.

The second floor single room was a tad small, but you don't need a lot of space for sleeping.

€185 was not cheap for a single room. However the handy location and comfortable stay meant that this was an acceptable price.

I did not try the breakfast. Why would you have a hotel breakfast in Paris when you can nip out to any cafe for your classic coffee and croissant?

Having been our third trip to Paris, this was the nicest hotel we have stayed in. It appears that finding a decent hotel with good prices is a hard find in Paris. This hotel had a fantastic location. The street was not a major city street, so that meant a good nights sleep for my family because there would be none of the city noises. The hotel beds are the average European beds, I would recommend bringing a mattress topper along if you have any neck/back issues. Otherwise, the hotel has a clean, fresh appearance.

Stayed here on business for 3 days. A gem. Perfect location. Friendly staff. Good value. Free wifi. Great breakfast. Rooms small but perfectly formed. Air conditioning was quiet which is a welcome in the summer months. Will return again.

I have been staying at Hotel Bedford on a business assignment 3 nights a week over 3months and so far, I have always been pleasantly surprised by the quality and the value of this hotel.

After a disastrous first week in the 8th arrondissement of Paris (4 different hotels in 4 nights) I discovered Hotel Bedford right in the center of the district. The hotel is located at walking distance to basically anything you'd want to do and see in the 8th arrondissement.

The rooms are generally spacious (I have tried a vast selection of them over the past few weeks) and although the carpeting is slightly dated, the cleanliness of the entire hotel more than makes up for it.
The basic amenities you'd expect from a 4-star hotel are there. I have to admit that the modern flat screen TVs in the guest rooms are ridiculously small but who'd want to watch TV when they're in Paris right?

The staff is very kind and willing to go out of their way to try to accommodate you the best they can.

The only downside is the lack of a gym (which is surprisingly hard to find in Parisian hotels).

Overall, I would definitely recommend Hotel Bedford for anyone visiting Paris.
