Would be great if each room had a microwave and each room had a listing of services offered including costs for phone calls and how to use the voice messaging system. Good things, reported 2 problems in the room after the first night and the items were fixed by that afternoon, staff were knowledgeable about the operations of the hotel and tourist issues. The hotel is within easy walking distance of many landmarks like Time Square, Grand Central Station, and the Empire State Building.

gerne wieder. das hotel liegt sehr zentral. in 3 gehminuten hat man die central station erreicht. central park, times square zu fuß in 10 bis 15 min erreichbar. möglichkeiten zum einkaufen von lebensmitteln, restaurants etc. zahlreich in direkter umgebung vorhanden. hotelpersonal freundlich und zuvorkommend. negativ: die klimaanlage UNSERES zimmers war sehr laut. wurde allerdings benötigt - reisezeit war august - es war sehr heiß. ist aber vom gast an- und ausschaltbar und im winter eh nicht relevant. freier internetzugang auf den zimmern (wlan) verfügbar. alles in allem sehr zu empfehlen, wenn man nicht puren luxus benötigt, sondern die stadt sehen möchte.

This was our first time staying in the area of Grand Central Station. The Bedford is conveniently located and is tastefully decorated. We enjoyed the personal touch of this small, comfortable hotel. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The desk clerk let us check in early on a Saturday morning and gave us a room on a high floor in the back of the hotel which we truly appreciated because the room was quiet with a great view of the Empire State Building. We look forward to returning.

Overall a friendly, economical, clean and well located Hotel. Minor glitches: Elevator and WiFi a tad wonky, and the power outlet in the desk light didn't work, but I'd still consider staying there in the future.

I was upgraded to a suite probably because I checked in late but tried to ignored this fact in my rating. I liked the quiet, safe neighbourhood still only 10 min walk from Times Sq. Clean. Not cheap but that's NYC.

Albergo ideale per un soggiorno a New York,posizione centralissima:a un passo dalla Stazione Centrale,dal Chrysler building,dall'Empire e da Time Square. Personale molto disponibile e simpatico. La nostra camera (una suite per 4 persone)era molto spaziosa,con cucinotto e 2 guardaroba. Il rapporto qualità/prezzo è buono.
