Came to Bern to visit a high school friend who was a foreign exchange student at my school. It had been a very long time since we've seen each other, and on this particular trip, I said I stopped through Bern on the way to Italy. I searched through many hotels in Bern, and this one was perfect since it was close to the train station...literally a 5 minute walk!
Room was a good size with twin beds. There was a small balcony that faced out to the street. We were on the 2nd floor and didn't hear much noise from the street or other guests. Good closet space and an in-room safe. The only downside is that the only English tv stations were news. Another issue was that at a certain time in the morning, the AC is turned off. Granted the weather was nice, but if you opened the French doors, it was pretty loud.
Other than that, the staff was very friendly, especially when we checked in, and even when I needed to get another key because my friend was asleep and couldn't hear me knocking. I would definitely consider staying here again when I come to see my friend.
