Bedford hotel Brussels

Great. Good location, value for money. Near the major attraction. Basic, but no kettle or hot water in hotel anywhere. Have to get from bar but must do it before 10 pm else it closes and you will have no hot/warm water for drinking or make any hot choc.

Nice and clean hotel in the middle of the town with a parking garage just outside the backdoor. 5 min. to The Grand Place and in walking distance for many sights. Average breakfast but ok! Nice staff and a quiet hotel dispite the many hotel guests. 310 bedrooms.

Reliability once again

I recommend this hotel if only for the efficient air-conditioning in room. That helped me survive Brussels heat wave this week. They have also improved their free internet in the lobby - it is much faster now and good for skyping.

Good experience, overall

Access to free internet is difficult, only available in the lobby and often sporadic, you need patience. Otherwise a nice stay. Walk to Manneken Pis takes 5 minutes but to Gare du Midi takes about 20 minutes.

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.
