“colourful”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

This is certily experimal as Bern can become. The entrance hall and the restaurant are quite Bern-Style (a bit dull, regular, nothing outstandig) The rooms are colourful, the building inside is strange as you have an awful lot of room without view. located around a smll yard you are able to watch your neighbours walk in their room, when lights are switches on. The tables, chairs even some of the beds are pink, olive or purple. Close your eyes very fast and you will survive....

Breakfast is okay, good coffee selection, packed butter and honey (this is something I really cannot stand !)
Good value for money.

Good location, very big rooms.
Had a room at the back side of the hotel. Very nice and very large comfortable room.
Coffee and water in the minibar was free of charge and chocolate was on the bed, for free as well.
Computer free of charge to use in the lobby and a very good location.

Very clean room and bathroom - appreciated cleanliness. No AC, but can open windows really wide. Even though room was directly across from elevator, it wasn't noisy. Good location/distance to shops and river. No breakfast included with rate. Restaurant in hotel extremely pricey without a lot of food choices; left restaurant after reviewing menu/prices.

Room Tip: get room on inside corridor

On the web site the rooms seem far better than what they are. Besides, it is rather odd that breakfast is not included.
On the other hand the service and quality are pretty high.
The hotel is within easy reach from the railway station.
All told, I am quite satisfied.

I have stayed there before and will do so again. The staff are no friendly and obliging. The room and beds for Single Occupancy are a bit small but comfortable. The breakfast is very good. One can order scramble eggs and bacon, for example, at no extra charge, although a continental breakfast seems to be intended.

it is so central and convenient. Near the main railway station and trams and buses.

it doesn't have a bar. One must go next door to Baren Bar which is not that appealing. It doesn't have a restaurant except for breakfast. The Baren bar closes on a Sunday. Bad, if one is there for the weekend. Owing to lack of Restaurant and Bar one wonders why 4 star. But service is excellent so that probably is the reason

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking patio or inside courtyard. avoid one on street side

The hotel was very nice and the staff were friendly. The reception spoke German as well as english.

This hotel has you hand in your keys every time you leave the hotel, which I guess is common in Switzerland, but no so common for me.

The room was nice and clean, and the Internet connection was good.
The room was rather small, I had chosen a room with a bathroom which was important to me.
I could not find any english channels on the television, but I have read reviews that said they were there. It is possible I missed them.

The hotel was right in the middle of town and close to everything. I walked from the train to the hotel and back when it was time to leave. Most other activities in town I was able to walk to. When I needed to go a little further it was only a block and a half from a tram to take me further away.

I would go back.

Very good location and friendly front desk. But the room is a bit small (for long term stay) and the carpet isn't that clean at some point. I didn't see the toothbrush and slippers in the room, which I thought it's normally the basic in general. I found out that I had to collect them at front desk without no one told me.
The breakfast is yummy.
