"Delightful hotel with a secluded garden that is ideal for a stay in the centre of London"
LH Comment: First and foremost, the Bedford Hotel is situated in an ideal location for getting around London on foot with many attractions being within a 10 or 15 minute walk. The hotel is a purpose built building and in our opinion is a good tourist class option.
For that area, its a good price and gets quite good guest reviews.
Worth a look.
