“Perfect location for exploring Paris”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Located in a side street just off Place de Madeleine, the Hotel Bedford is very well situated for exploring the sites of Paris. It is in walking distance of Place de Concorde, Boulevard Haussmann, the Seine and if you don't mind a longer walk the Louvre is close enough to get there by foot.

The hotel itself is very clean and comfortable, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. I booked one of the apartments which is a two bedroom (one single, one double), two bathroom suite with a small living room. The rooms are relatively basic especially given the price (this is not a hotel for those travelling on a tight budget) but the set up was perfect for three people especially having two bathrooms. At busy times the rooms were a bit noisy as ours was above a dining room and next to the stair case, but it wasn't too much of an issue and after 11pm it was very quiet. Beds were comfortable and the rooms are of a decent size.

The dining room is very ornate and like nearly every restaurant in Paris it is a little bit cramped. We only ate breakfast at the hotel as there are so many restaurants in the area we ate out in the day time. Also the bar and restaurant at the hotel is a bit too expensive. The breakfast is nice but at Eur21 a head, it is a bit basic.

Overall a nice hotel, in a great area and I would stay there again.

Room Tip: The apartments are great for couples with a child.

A very basic hotel. It is clean and service is friendly. Located in center Paris near most shopping ereas..But rooms have the strict minimum. No decoration .The matress on the bed is hard and the cover is very light . So we asked for an extra one and extra pillows to add to the very thin ones already there. The breakfast is served in a nice restaurant. ( best part of the hotel) was varied and copious. But the rooms for a 4 stars hotel needs refurnishing

Perfect location, close to Madeleine, rue Royale, Fabourg St Honore, Gallerie Lafayette. Cosy rooms, delicious breakfast buffet, and nice service. There is metro Station 1 block away. A great hotel that I strongly recommend.

We have just come back from a weekend at Hotel Bedford. It is ideally situated down a side street , so lovely and quiet, but centrally based, just over a 5 minute walk to the Place de Concorde.
Staff are friendly and helpful, reception area is decorated in a high end style, and a particular strength of the hotel is the beautiful breakfast/dining room. Rooms, despite other reviews here, we found to be quite spacious. We are a family of 4 and had two connecting rooms.
Room for improvement - bathroom door was looking a bit worn and could have done with a lick of paint. More powerful, modern hairdryers are desperately needed and hair conditioner needed with complimentary toiletries!
Otherwise a lovely stay and would definitely go back

We stayed 3 nights in Bedford hotel and overall enjoyed our stay. Honestly, the room for 220 euro per night was very small. It felt that the hotel is not new, but of a very good quality. For example the mattress was perfect and the bathroom and towels were very good too. For a 4 star hotel it was strange they did not provide slippers and a bathrobe, also no hair conditioner, only shampoo, soap and body lotion. No full-length mirror and the wadrobe was very small, although enough if you travel for a weekend. When we arrived the room was very cold and we had to turn on the heating ourselves.

The location is really perfect - close to main sightseeing spots, shopping streets and the Opera.

The breakfast was very decent, but again for 20 euros you don't get a hot omlet included. That's strange.

I liked our stay, but I think they could improve some things for the price they ask for it.

Despite the small room, but my one night stay was perfect. The staff provided me with everything i needed after i had lost my luggage. Comfortable bed, warm room, nice view, clean but overpriced.
Everything you need is within few minutes waliking distance
