“Very good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

This hotel is not in the city center but is very closed to the tram stop and takes just 10 minutes to get to the hotel from the train station. Nice clean rooms, decent size rooms. Overall good experience. Would recommend it.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

We spent two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The executive room was excellent. It was cozy, clean and comfortable, with excellent views. Whilst this was by far the most expensive hotel (our choice) that we stayed at during our trip, we were happy to pay the price for the room, quiet location, view and the parking. The hotel is not located close to the city center, but it was only a short drive and there is transport available at the front door.On our first night we were unable to sit in the restaurant due to a private function, so we ate in the bar, and found the food and the service there to be excellent. Breakfast was also a treat. On the strength of the bar food and breakfast we dined in the restaurant on our second night. We took the buffet option and we were disappointed. Whilst we found the food to be filling, we thought the range on offer, for the price, was only average.
Overall we found all the staff to be extremely helpful and courteous and we enjoyed our stay. .

Because of the high prices of hotels in Switzerland, it is a good option to stay in the visit to Bern. The hotel is not far from the city center (just 5 minutes by car, with tram connections, or a nice walk down..). Situated in a quiet area, opposite the Expo. Room large and comfortable. Breakfast expensive but children do not pay. Restaurant with a suitable menu for a light dinner with Swiss standard prices. Parking over 20 € / night. Staff like robots, without any personal approach. In short, good quality/Price value.

This is a good clean hotel, perfect for the business traveler. Rooms are small but there is a decent restaurant on the ground floor and the food is good (but expensive). Staff is very helpful, all speak English, and the hotel is walking distance to several nearby attractions like the stadium, shopping, and the rose garden.
