A simple wooden bed and wooden floors, big windows, a fluffy duvet cover, white walls: simple, clean, with a very warm welcome. I would definitely recommend. By Swiss standards, also very affordable. Location is just over the bridge from the main station––a short walk or two tram stops.

Stayed at Marthahaus early in October on a whirlwind European tour. What a clean and serene stay. Everything about this hotel is organized, bright and calm. Staff very efficient and accommodating; rooms pristine; breakfast plentiful. The neighbourhood is quiet and yet you are close enough to get good public transit anywhere you'd like to go. Also close to a lovely...

stopped visiting because of the conference. Of course prices in Bern bite and this hotel was a good budget option. Breakfast is quite decent for a two star room is small but clean. As the old house, the floor creaks and poor insulation. In the basement is a common kitchen with refrigerator and utensils.

Hotel is operated by a charity so the money goes to a good cause. It is located in a residential area about 10-15 minute walk to the old town. 160Euro for a twin with a private bath. Operates as a hostel and many rooms share a bathroom. 10 Euro to park. No street parking available so pay if you drive....

We visited this hotel mid-September 2016
 It is a simple building that felt like an old dormitory and perfect for a good night’s sleep. We walked from the train station (15-20 minutes) and also walked down into the historic section of Bern every day. If necessary, public transportation is just down the road. English speaking staff is very informative and...

Hotel Marthahaus was the perfect place to stay for me. My room (with private bath) was quite spacious, very clean and light. Since the hotel is located in a small street it is very quiet. Coffee and tea is provided at any time and there is a kitchen that can be used by the guests. Into the city center you...

Some may comment that the rooms are simple and lacks amenities. We found this hotel perfect for our needs. The hotel is nicely situated on the 10 & 20 bus lines, but we preferred the 10 minute easy walk to train station and downtown. The beds were comfortable, and breakfast was good too. I'm not sure there is another hotel...

So i was in Bern i the first week of October 2016 and stayed at Hotel Marthahaus Anyway the hotel is an easy 10-15 minute walk from the Bern Train Station.

I chose this hotel because it is one of Rick Steves' recommended hotels in Bern and was also highly rated by TripAdvisor. I am glad I did!

Great stay, wonderful breakfast round the clock coffee and tea supply, friendly staff and good location!!! Unlike hotels near train station, hotel marthahaus makes guests feel home, toilet and bed are clean! The wooden floor might be too old that will make sound as you walk through. But it is still acceptable, the interior design of the property is great...
