Solo Stay at the Bedford Hotel
It was my first time staying at the Bedford Hotel and I would say I had an overall good experience at this property. The location is pretty good. The hotel is right next to the British Museum, a 15-ish minute walk to Oxford Street, and not that far from various London Underground stations. Staff were able to check me in earlier than my scheduled check-in time, which was much appreciated. My room was clean and a good size for a solo traveler, though I wish the bed was bigger than a twin. I loved that the room had a combination shower/bathtub, though water easily got all over the bathroom in my experience. Staff also did a great job with turning down the room every day I stayed. The hotel also offered breakfast for around £7, but I didn't take advantage of it as there were many cafes and restaurants around the property. Overall this property met my expectations and provided a great home base for my stay in London :)

Very noisy.
Very noisy. The earplugs next to the bed should have been a giveaway. Asked for a quiet room, definitely didn’t get it. Location is good though

Good option for city break
Great location close to Holborn with attentive staff, good cocktails and luggage store allowing you to explore the next day without your suitcase. Strange toilet/bathroom combo in our twin rooms but nothing that hampered our stay.

10/10 Exceptional

Weekend break.
Excellent location for a walk to Oxford St, Covent Garden or theatreland, & very close to The British Museum. Has an underground car park (chargeable). Room was quiet and well appointed, with various lighting options, which is convenient if you have differing "sleep times". The breakfast buffet was very good, & staff checked it regularly. We would certainly stay here again.
