A small pedestal fan was the only air conditioning. Had to pay 125 pounds for parking for a 5 day stay. I was not aware of how to pay toll fees for driving in London. The parking attendant did let us know we would have to pay but it was never made clear that it's 15 pounds a day and you can only pay online. Ended up charged almost 300 dollars in fines... so far. Our "do not disturb" sign disappeared twice and our room was cleaned though we did not want it to be, made clear with the disappearing sign. It was very close to many parks, shopping, and food options. The reason we choose it was the proximity to the British Museum. It ended up being a reasonable walking distance from everything someone would want to see in London. Little disappointed in the whole experience. Lovely tub. I thought it was the most comfortable part of the whole room.

I had never heard of a hotel that had small twin-bed rooms for singles, so I jumped at it. The room is plenty big enough, the garden view was wonderful, a small refrigerator was included so I could keep cold drinks. There is a closet with shelves and hangers. A fan kept the room cool during the warmer-than-expected afternoons in September. It was nice to have my own bathroom. I'm an American, so I had to bring an adapter, but there were a couple of outlets (and the adapter by itself could handle my phone, e-book, and Fitbit, which is all I needed). A full English breakfast was included in the low price, so that meant I had more disposable cash to spend in bookstores and cafes. The staff were quite friendly, including the cleaning crew. It was a very good place for a single traveler to go (and looked like a good place for non-singles as well). The location is great - you are "triangulated" between Russell Square, Holburn, and Tottenham Court Road tube stations; bus lines run along Southampton Row and on nearby streets, so you can get anywhere. You aren't as far as you might think from theatres, restaurants, and shopping (check out Seven Dials, Covent Garden). I "accidentally" walked back to the hotel a couple of times before I realized I didn't have to take the tube or a bus unless I really wanted to. The British Museum and the British Library are a short walk away (and worth a visit). I hope to return soon and will definitely try to stay at the Bedford.

Excellent staff service. Helpful with many unusual requests, such as need for bandaids when pharmacies were closed and search for best pub to watch Champions League football. In both cases, staff went out of their way to help--very personal touch!
