The location is unbelievable! Literally 2 seconds from the train station and trams! People were really nice and helpful! Great wifi and use of printer! The room was very basic but fantastic by Switzerland standards! We really liked the place! Very clean and functional! Breakfast was also fantastic! Not heaps of hot stuff but for I loved it!

The hotel is strategically located very close to the rail station and this makes arrival and departure from Bern easy. the service is good, check-in though delayed was smooth. there was free Wifi on arrival and the rooms were clean.
However the rate was abit high for the facilities available. Breakfast was an additional cost and drinks in the mini bar was expensive..

Room Tip: Rooms away from the elevator and facing the courtyard are quieter.

as the name "bahnhof" suggests, the hotel is literally right next to the train station. service was great. we arrived at 9am, and one of our two rooms was ready, they just let us into the room. the room was clean and comfortable. toiletries provided - lemongrass, decent but not luxurious. coffee, tea and kettle were provided. the staff was always helpful. overall, it was value for money.

We did not like our experience in this hotel. Rooms were noisy. We did not feel secure at this property. Our window had a staircase that could provide an additional entrance for someone from outside. We could hear noises from other rooms. Location is ok, in front of the bahnhof (Main train station). I would recommend looking for a different hotel on your next visit.

This a simply hotel ,room size is great for 3 person stay in .Not what you would consider luxury, although it had all the amenities and services that I required for my stay. The location was perfect, being very close to the main station ,tram and bas. Great location to stay when you travel with big luaggage bag. Good design structure for lady who need make up. No air condition, remote control not working , tea and coffee not top up.

We arrived bit early and stored our bags while we walked around Bern. We were instructed to return promptly at 2 pm to check in, but when we did, our room was still not ready. We were not able to check in until more than an hour after check-in time. The hotel appears seriously understaffed and the front desk staffers, while generally pleasant, seemed to spend a lot of time smoking outside the front door. The room was cramped with scarred furniture and no a/c, which in a July heat wave was a problem for sleeping. Bathroom was spacious and clean, however. They wanted 26 CHF for a continental breakfast offered everywhere else in the country for 15 CHF. Fortunately the train station has many budget takeout options. Our room was next to the breakfast room so prep noise began at 5 AM. Internet portal in the lobby was not working so we got a free wifi password to use in our room. You can't beat the convenient location of this place, but it could use quite a bit of improving.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the opposite side from the station, and away from the dining room.

Choose this hotel because of it's location and the rates have been ok. Remembered the hotel from 1998 and at that time it was ok. However I do not really have the impression that this hotel has undergone any updates since then.
Room was actually rather big but didn't have any ambiance at all. Mini TV far away from the bed and almost to far for the remote controll to connect.
reakfast restaurant terrible. Tristesse pure. Bad quality of food and very unattentive service. So after one breakfast there decided to have breakfast in town in a cosyer place.
The team at the reception was very attentive and helpfull.
So my conlcusion: It is ok for 1 or 2 nights and for what I had to pay but next time will look for a hotel with cachet and charme. Hard to beat the location though opposite of the railway station.

Room Tip: If you travel allone, ask for a double single use as a friend of mine got a single room which must h...
