One thing to keep in mind is bedrooms receive the least amount of traffic and your usually in your socks or slippers. For this reason and a low budget at that time we used laminate flooring and are quite happy with it. I am a solid 3/4 hardwood fan. You get a lot more out of your money and if you drop something sharp on it, it can be repaired much easier than Laminate.
Another thing to keep in mind a laminate floor floats so when you walk on it it has a little give to it as opposed to solid wood has no give and some people do not like that.
When looking at laminate try to get one with the longest warranty
