“affordable quality accommodation in Berne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

The hotel is not in the very city centre of Berne and therefore more affordable than hotels of similar standard in this city. It is nevertheless easily reachable by a short tram ride from the train station. Facilities are good, staff very helpful. As it was a warm summer night there were some external visitors to the hotel's outside restaurant and bar and I could not open my window but this was handled very professionally by hotel staff when I told them about it.

Room Tip: ask for a street facing room in the summer months

The hotel was better suited to a backpacker or single person or businessman. The room and bath were so small, no place to turn around or put anything anywhere. The staff was very pleasant, the breakfast was excellent with cappichino and all sorts of very healthy "Fresh Fields" food. A little inconvenient location, a tram was necessary to get to town although they run every 6 minutes but are a 10 minute walk away. In our 70's we'll take a pass on this next time.

Room Tip: I would assume all the rooms are the same excepting perhaps the "family room". I couldn;t...

Dear pineapplehorse

First of all we would like to thank you very much for the time you have taken writing down your impressions.
It is vitally important to us, receiving honest feedback from our guests.
Furthermore, it is extremely helpful for prospective guests to choose a hotel in Bern.
As you may know, we are very sensibly to reviews, negatives as well as positives.

It is correct that our hotel is not dirct in the city center. Most of our guest prefer the silence around our hotel instead the noise from the city center. I'm sorry that we don't meet your expectations.

Kind regards

This was our second stay here, and we'll be coming back. We find no fault with this place: service is excellent, the staff is really friendly and helpful. The food for breakfast and dinner is well-presented and tasty, and caters generously for vegetarians. Easy access to the city centre, but in a quieter area, so it's nice to return to a peaceful room at night.

Room Tip: We preferred our room in the newer part of the hotel to that in the older, because the bathroom was...

Hotel Alpenblick was a great stay for Bern. It is located close to majority of the important landmarks in Bern. It is very close to the Rosegarten which has a great view over the city! The beds were comfortable. The restaurant is good. The hotel is clean and nice, located close to bus line 10 and tram 9 which will both take you to the main station! There is free wifi which is pretty good and the staff is very friendly and willing to accommodate. It's a great place.

I find 'international style' hotels bland and uninviting. For my short stay in Bern I wanted something small, friendly and with character. And the Alpenblick gave me this. I could quibble about a few points (small bathroom, somewhat limited breakfast selection), but that would be churlish. My one regret is not having had the opportunity to eat dinner at the restaurant -- it looked welcoming! I doubt I'll pass through Bern again, but if I do I'll arrange to stay at the Alpenblick.

Hotel Commonwealth is such a lovely hotel located in such a convenient part. The staff, and especially Evan at the front desk, were so welcoming and helpful, it was like coming home every time I came back to the hotel. And what a comfortable bed!! I wish I could have stayed longer!
8. My wife and I ventured to for the 2014 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. It was her idea, however neither of us had been to either, so it was worth a week’s vacation time to watch some figure skating and take in some of our country’s colonial and revolutionary war history.

Room Tip: amazing rooms view like very like it.
