I stayed for three nights on October 12th, 2013 at bedford and I was very disappointed in the room size it was about 2m x 4m, the furniture was old, and the bed sheets were not comfortable. However, location is great close to everything and friendly staff.

Great location, walk to shops, public transport and restaurants. Good sized rooms and nice view from room. Lots of room for storage and laying out suitcases. Bright, clean room and great house keeping. Front desk staff are helpful, friendly and professional. Carpet could use a replacement or good cleaning though.

Heat is manual in room, took two days to figure out setting and not sure how to control temperature. TV will turn off every 45 minutes or one hour on its own and have to turn it back on.

We booked an apartment for three,but they offered even a better deal- we got two connecting superior rooms,very spacious and comfy. Everyone was so welcoming,from the receptionist and concierge to the maids. The receptionist speak English very well,and concierge was always very helpful and smiling. The only downturn are waiters in the restaurant (except younger ones),the service was slow and kind of shabby.Breakfast costs 20 euro, wireless is free throughout the hotel.

The location of the hotel is great,5-7 mins walk to the Concorde,Lafayette and Opera Garnier. That is why you will have to pay more for this accommodation,but it is worthy. plus,it is a peaceful and secure neighbourhood.

Great Location, rooms are large with great street outlook. Easy access to metro and 10-15 minutes walking distance from some of the major tourist locations. Local area has lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from.

We just returned from taking a group to France and stayed at the Bedford for five nights. The location was perfect for walking to all the various sites as well as shopping and restaurants. The staff was very helpful from the front desk to the restaurant. Our room, a Superior, was very comfortable with plenty of room. Some of the group had standard rooms with balconies that were also nice. No noise issues at all.

The breakfast buffet was good although no hot food was served. You could order eggs if you preferred.

All nineteen of us were very satisfied with our stay.

We stayed at Bedford twice. Once in early Aug 2013 for 7 nights. And then again later in the month for one night.
Lets start with the positives: the carpeting and wallpaper make this hotel beautiful. The views are beautiful. The front desk staff and housekeepers are friendly.
Now the negatives: First stay - towel warmer did not work; a/c would not stop and kept it freezing in the room. When we called the front desk, they said someone would be right up. Nobody showed. They remotely turned off the a/c for our last 3 nights. One window would not open properly. The wifi does not work in the rooms or hallway on the 8th floor; there is no water pressure on the 8th floor and no ability to control water temp. It kept changing from freezing to scalding. We asked for assistance but the front desk said the person that deals with those equipment issues in the rooms was not there yet (at 9:30 am) and they would tell them when they arrived. When we checked out I asked to speak to the general manager. The deputy director came and spoke with me. He did not seem concerned at all about the negative experience. He offered that they would 'do something' if we came back to the hotel next month. No apology, nothing. That deputy director is a stuffed shirt and should not work in the hospitality industry. He is a poor representation for Hotel Bedford. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL. ANYWHERE ELSE IS PARIS WILL BE A BETTER EXPERIENCE.

Room Tip: To choose a good room - quickly choose another hotel in Paris. Don't bother with Bedford, they...

I spent a week on business in Paris staying at the Bedford. The staff represent what I consider the essence of la politesse française; a commodity sadly rare in Paris but abundant at this hotel.

My only caveat is the wifi service, which was fast but which one had to log into every time the iPad or iPhone was closed. But this is a small consideration compared to the excellence of the lovely staff.
