We stayed 3 nights. Room was great and friendly staff. Breakfast selection was excellent. They provide public transportation passes for the duration of our stay which we found very convenient to move around the city. Parking was a bit tight for our mini van but it worked out well.

Friendly and helpful staff, excellent location, very good breakfast and decent rooms. It's a budget hotel yet they maintained clean, comfortable rooms. The bathroom is a bit too small. Laundry room on site, small gym is also available.

Clean rooms, friendly staff, very convenient location in front of the Expo and only few minutes from the city centre. But the breakfast trumps everything, perfectly presented, with many healthy choices and immmaculate service.

In general, the hotel was wonderful. Complimentary transport tickets were available and provided by the tourism agency as with most cities in Switzerland. Nothing extragavant for breakfast but was good enough. Our room had an odd layout where the WC was away from the Shower area. Comfy sleep for the night with literally nothing else around the hotel other than... More

This hotel has a very good location near the shops and opposite the Stadium. Staff are very friendly, the rooms are normal size. Very clean and quite modern. Free Wifi that works in all areas. It does have a parking, charged approximately at 20CHF per day. Breakfast was very good

On family your around Switzerland we stayed at Novotel Bern Expo. Large comfortable family room and we all sleep very well. Complimentary travel cards made up for the distance from city centre and easy to reach on tram. Dinner in restaurant was expensive but good quality and plentiful altho Kids menu would a welcome addition. Check in fast and efficient.

We stay here for 1 night and went to the city center for sightseeing. It is about 15 minutes tram distance to city center. Frequent tram service and 1 minute walking distance to station made our stay perfect. Clean room, friendly staff and good wifi had been provided. Highly recommended for this hotel. 我們在這裡住了一晚,去市中心觀光。距離市中心約15分鐘電車距離。頻繁的電車服務和1分鐘步行距離車站,使我們的住宿完美。潔淨室,友好的工作人員和良好的WiFi已提供。強烈推薦這家酒店

The service at the hotel is excellent and for driving the location is perfect. A short tram ride gets you into the centre within 10-15 mins. Sadly the rest is pretty standard from a chain hotel, although Novotel are better than most. However it is frustrating that Novotel's continue to have their toilets in a room separate from the bathroom.... More
