Just 8 minutes to this lively, new modern Hotel from Bern station by train. The train and the tram stations are just in front of this Hotel are very convenient indeed. Warm welcome at the reception by charming Ms. Wyss, offered us room though we have arrived a few hours earlier than the check in time. The room was a bliss, good size with all mod cons. Interior designers had done wonders with leafy green colour for the wall and silver for the furniture. Apt lighting, cozy bed and chairs added to the comforts. The pillow menu was very thoughtful; one could order at no cost the pillows to suite ones comfort level.
The bathroom is designed with lots of thoughts, walk in shower with high tech fittings. Only down side is the fixed glass panel shower is a wee bit small hence the water flashes outside the shower. The designer should have made a bigger shower panel or a door to keep the water in. Again a small note in the bathroom offering the things that you may have forgot to bring, like shaving kits etc, at no charge a touch of class.
The best part was the hotel is attached to a beautiful shopping mall that has all the up market labels, very good coffee shop and a lovely Thai bistro where we had a wonderful dinner and a delightful lunch before catching our train to Lucerne. Again Ms. Wyss was kind enough to extend our check out few more hours.
We enjoyed our stay in Holiday Inn and it was one of the best hotels in our Switzerland trip.
