Great location but.....

Superb location and a decent business hotel. But they have an interesting understanding of "twin" room. To them its 2 single beds shoved together. If u fancy spending your first few minutes in a room rearranging the furniture you may be ok. In our first room you couldn't even do that so, much as I love my sister, we had to change room. The a/c didn't work in tbe next "superior" room and they couldn't fix it. They offered to change us again but we couldn't be bothered. The bed/sofa bed combo was comfortable and the inclusive breakfast was impressive. Staff were efficient. Overall a mixed stay but more on the plus side.

Beer festival/Brussels exploration trip (mixed group of 8).

From when I booked 4 rooms the process was smooth and easy. I emailed the hotel to request 4 twin rooms (no option to choose via website). I received a prompt email back to say it was duly done. Pleasantly surprised that they had indeed saved us 4 twin rooms although three were next to each other and one on the opposite side but that's no major gripe. Rooms are rather dated but clean. Breakfast was the usual continental affair, nothing amazing but nice to have it. Wifi is available but tediously slow and requires having to type in an 11 character code each time you want to use it. Coverage is rather sketchy too. If you were planning to use it for working it would not be sufficient. For what we wanted it fit the bill perfectly, reasonable priced, close to the centre and most importantly clean. I have worked and lived (9months) in the city several times before so know it quite well and used the opportunity to guide a group of friends and share some of Brussels hight lights. I would happily use this hotel again.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

The Havana club is excellent for a trouble/hassle free night out though does get packed... open 7pm-7am on Saturday. It's about 1km from The Bedford hotel, but if you're in heels may want to take a cab. Heels and cobbled stones do not mix well...

Surprised

I was pleasantly surprised to find the Bedford so central to the old city and it attractions. It is a 15/30 min walk from railway station - depending on your fitness level and the weight of your luggage otherwise a ten euro cab fare! Staff we friendly but that is about it. Certainly I would stay again unless I come across a hotel with a walk-in shower - showers over bathtubs are not easy forthose with wonkie knees.
