I stayed here for 3 nights on my own and I couldn't have picked a more better location. I felt so safe on my own. The hotel was located in an amazingly central location where I could walk everywhere to the famous landmarks and other places. The Madeline station was around the corner and it was only 8mins to Gare De Lyon. Awesome! My room was clean and the staff at the front desk were great. Had a drink at the bar and they were great as well. Only one negative about this hotel is the thin walls. I was in the "city of love" and I heard a lot of lovin' :-) - but then traveling throughout Europe, thin walls is ye norm.

Great hotel and highly recommended. Would definitely stay here next time I'm in Paree

The Bedford is located close to Place Madeleine and Boulevard Haussman. Metro stations at Madelaine, St Lazare, Havre-Caumartin and St Augustin are all within easy walking distance. The hotel is very pleasant and has a bar and dining room. My room was spacious and well appointed although I would have appreciated tea/coffee making facilities. Although in a central location Rue de l'Arcade itself is quiet and there are many restaurants, bars, shops etc nearby. The big stores in Boulevard Haussman and Bd des Capucines are only a 10 or 15 minute walk and Place de la Concorde is only about 10 minutes away. I found the staff friendly and helpful and I would certainly book here again.

Good staff, good location, large good rooms.
Staff were very helpful and friendly, the location is on a quiet street a few metres away from Madeleine.
Booked through booking.com who changed our booking from 4 people to 5, but by the time we arrived in our room from check in the helpful staff were already removing the additional bed which was not required.
Large rooms, with a lot of storage space and fridge with room to store our own purchased water, comfy chairs to sit in next to the large opening windows with geraniums in the flowerboxes.. we will be returning.

Room Tip: we had connecting rooms - ideal for travelling with children

The Bedfod Hotel is quite central, a few steps from the Madeleine and Haussman boulward, but tucked in a quiet street.

The service was great, personal and considerate. Our flight back home was delayed and we granted a 16:00 late checkout, free of charge.

We'll be back.

I stayed at the Bedford Hotel in March 2014 for 3 nights. This is a charming hotel tucked away on a quite street in central Paris. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere French chic and calm. The only snag was that I had booked a triple room on the website booking.com, which advertised 3 triple beds. However, upon checking in we were told we had booked a double room with a further fold out bed which would be delivered to our room. Apparently the hotel does not have any triple rooms which has 3 separate beds! Although we ultimately had 3 beds, it was not what we were expecting or what was advertised. I am not sure if this is the fault of the actual website or the hotel.

The room was comfortable and of average size, even for the three of us. The bathroom was decent with a separate toilet entered through the bathroom, for extra privacy.

We did not stay bed and breakfast but the breakfast room was traditional and looked very authentic. There is a pleasant hotel bar at the hotel. I really enjoyed this hotel for the traditional feel of it. It gave a really good Paris feel, away from some of the bigger more common hotels.

The location was good with a small corner shop a few minutes walk from the hotel. It was situated in the upper class of Paris with it's array of cafes, bars, shops and restaurants.

Recommendations

The hotel was walking distance to the Buddha Bar and Restaurant in Paris and very nearby to the Champs Elysees, where we saw the Lido show, which was a great experience. the lovely Sacre Coeur is well worth a visit. The hillside Church is lovely and there is an array of art paintings sold outside in a little art type of market.

Paris is quite a disjointed city, if I were to return to Paris I would definitely consider a return to the charming Hotel Bedford.

Such a beautiful, quaint and very Parisian hotel. Fantastic location - walking distance to everything, clean, comfortable and very quiet. The service was fantastic-the staff so friendly,and breakfast was such a treat. No hesitation in recommending.

Friendly, amenable staff, and very convenient location to La Madeleine, Concorde, and the Champs Élysées. Although the pics of the lobby and breakfast room are quite nice, and in reality the public space is spacious and charming, the rooms feel a bit 'unwelcoming.' Small, and bare; we paid for a room 'with a view' and the room had a balcony, which could have been so special, however there wasn't even a chair on it! It was empty and felt sort of spooky because it was big enough to hold a small table and two chairs even -- a bit odd. For the price of the room, bathrobes would have been nice which the hotel will not provide. We asked. Finally, 21 euros extra for breakfast and the only hot food they offer on this buffet is pancakes, a bit of a rip-off. With so many hotels in centre Paris at this price I'd have to recommend that you do more research and try to avoid this one.
