I have stayed in several hotels in Bern and this is one of the better ones. Very central, next to the tram and buses, restaurants, shops etc. The reception is friendly enough but very few people… We had a large room for three people, the beds were fine, the bathroom a fair size, TV screen small and hanging from the...

Very "correct" hotel with great location in the center of Bern. Pleasant friendly staff, decent sized room and breakfast included - though no fresh fruit until a nice waitress searched and found a small Apple!

The room with a high ceiling is plain but clean, the whole feel of the facility is dated. No way how to at least try to change the temperature in the room, the only way would be to open the little window, but then you get an earful of noise. The bed is OK, the bathroom as well, the breakfast...

I must say that this place has a great location. It is just 5 mins walk from the train station. I got a very good room because it faced the Switzerland Parliament. What else do you want in a room other than this. My room was very cozy, good enough for 1 person. It had a min bar which didn't...

We found this hotel conveniently located relative to the train station and the center of the old town. The staff was friendly, courteous, helpful with good English skills. We were disappointed in the room which was not air conditioned. Sleeping with the windows open caused one to be awakened by the town clock (which, incidentally, was 5 minutes fast—not a...

I stayed here for a couple of nights whilst in Bern on business. All the staff I met were friendly and professional. The hotel is just a short walk from the station and pretty much opposite the Parliament building. My room was big and the free water and nice coffee maker were a nice treat. The free wifi worked well...

This hotel is handy for rail station and all sights of Bern. Staff are friendly. Hotel rooms are clean and minimalist, but no fridge or mini-bar, although there is a coffee machine, kettle and mineral water provided daily.

The hotel has a very central location only two blocks from the train station, just across the square from parliament. The facility is well maintained. But what really sets it apart from almost any other hotel is the staff which is managed by Carla, the most competent and personable lady I think I have ever had the pleasure to meet....

A very nice and small city hotel located close to the station and at the border of the old town of Berne. I had a small single room (504) just under the roof which seemed to be either new or renovated, quite functional with modern bath, TV, air condition, desk and an in-room safe. There's a small gym on the...
