Welcome to

Bedford Hotel

We welcome everyone to our secluded hotel nestled in the neighbourhood of Bloomsbury, central London. Especially popular for solo travellers to London, we provide everything for a safe and idyllic city stay in natural surroundings.

The British Museum is only 2 minutes’ walk from our front door, a cultural must-see during your visit. And with Holborn and Russell Square tube stations nearby, we are very well connected. Oxford Street and the cobbled lanes of Covent Garden are a pleasant 10 – 15 minute stroll, lined with vibrant restaurants, cafes, huge high-street stores and boutique shops.

Botanica, our ground floor restaurant, looks out onto the landscaped garden. Perfect for a bite to eat before the theatre; choose from our seasonal food menu and signature cocktails. Or sip leafy teas in leafy scenery and indulge in afternoon tea, indoors or outside.

Our private garden is your place to escape the hustle and bustle of London. Listen to the sound of soothing water features, melting your stresses away. Wake up to a fairytale in a Garden View room, and cultivate your city stay into an enchanting experience.
