We spent a week-end at this hotel and we would thoroughly recommend it. The hotel is housed in an old, grand, building with very high ceilings, also in the rooms. The floors are all wooden and the general feel is very cozy. There is not much furniture in the rooms, but this leaves them with a sense of space and air, quite different from the claustrophobic, tiny, sterile, carpeted rooms in business hotels. Bathroom was very small but if you are looking for these kind of things, you will spend far more in Bern. The best thing comes in the morning: the breakfast is wonderful! There is not a great choice, but everything is of a wonderful quality. The strong Swiss cheese, the extremely fresh ham, the eggs, the very tasy sweet and savioury breads, are all of a very high standard. Again, if you are looking for the American-style hotel, where you get a choice of forty standard dishes for breakfast, each one more plasticky tasting than the other, this hotel is not for you and you would be better off in the usual worlwide chain brands. If, on the other hand, you appreciate quality and authenticity of food, this is the place to go when in Bern. By the way, staff is extremely friendly and helpful: we asked for information to go by train to the Jungfrau mountain and the very efficient lady at reception spent a good twenty minutes with us, printing all the rail options (she must have printed 8 pages of rail time-tables) and explaining all the possible connections. There is only one negative point: the window curtains are neither thick nor dark, so in Summer expect a bit of daylight in the room very early in the morning
