Reviewed 23 August 2014

Entering a hotel on highways is very often like a lottery. But fortunately sometimes you can win. This West Bestern Hotel Grauholz was a very nice discovery. It is certainly one of the very good Best Western. Certainly quite higher as the normal minimum Best Western standard.
Extremely nice people
very nice, comfortable and large rooms
A very nice environment
Fantastic breakfast
Very good price
Particularity: The hotel gives you the possibility to discover a very interesting book "From head to heart" by F.X. Bühler in at least 4 different languages. You may discover this lecture in your room and in case buy the book at a preferential price.We really appreciated.

Hotel Grauholz can only be reached by the Autobahn.
Trying to travel around Switzerland on small roads avoiding to have to buy the 33 € entry ticket into the country: Forget it.
Trying to drive from Zollikofen which is about 200 m away to the hotel Grauholz you have to detour to the Autobahn and drive about 6 km before reaching 'the other side of the fence'.
It is a good hotel to stay overnight if you're traveling through, or if you are just staying shortly in the area.
Hotel bar? There's none, they do not serve alcohol as the hotel is fenced in close to the Autobahn and they are not allowed to serve motorists any form of alcohol.
Instead they have a counter on which you can find all sorts of other beverages for free.
Even though it is located so close to the the autobahn, it is relatively quiet... until about 5 in the morning, it then becomes noticeable that you are actually 'on the road'.
Breakfast was great, no wishes; personnel was very friendly.
When we arrived I mentioned my booking number; shee looked at my smiling, shaking her head and said: Here you are not just a number, I want to know you name.
I thought that was cute :)

Room Tip: All rooms are OK, the face the garden/park that the hotel surrounds. The Autobahn can not be seen fr...

We traveled from Seattle-DC-London-Zurich then drove two hours to this hotel. We checked in and all I was wanted was some food and a cold beer. Come to find out they don't serve alcohol because they're connected to the highway. They also have a restaurant, but it's not in the hotel, it's down the hill in the truck stop, which we skipped, which after reading reviews, I'm glad we did. AC didn't work, so sleep was uncomfortable. Not much value for the price ($220+ USD) We actually moved to another hotel in downtown Bern.

A 3 star hotel at a Autobahn service station at Grauholz on the Bern-Zurich autobahn. I stopped of here as I couldn't be bothered to drive into Bern itself, so luckly at this service station there was a Best Western hotel. The price for 2 persons (double bed) cost me around £110, but luckly I could afford this. I nearly walked away, but when they said free wi-fi internet, free soft drinks and fruits and breakfast as well, it had to be taken.

It was more of a 4 star hotel than a 3 star hotel, and the service I got from staff was fantastic! Very helpful and most staff speak three languages, German, French, and English.

The rooms were great, spacious, and clean, same with the washrooms. The telvisions are with the latest technology, some sort of internet television with all the television channels needed if you don't speak english! Doh!

The breakfast is the average european contiential breakfast, but they did have very nice youguhts! Yummy!

Just one snag, you can only reach this hotel with a car as it is on a autobahn service station! :)

Room Tip: No problems with rooms here

Hotel room was very clean, friendly staff with helping attitude, free bicycle to explore neighborhood. Directly on A1 Bern- Zurich with access from both directions, train station to city in 20 min walking distance. Even though hotel is next to highway it's very quiet. Very nice garden to relax and have breakfast outside. Delicious breakfast with wide range of food that is continuously refilled up to the end of morning.

Basically what you need when on transit: spotless rooms, friendly staff, easy access from highway and not too expensive. Breakfast is a glorious exception: fresh juices, lots of different breads, fruits and cheeses: a real party!

71 euros for one of the worst meals I have ever eaten for three people and then I had to pay to go to the toilet and when I did not have a Swiss franc they would not let me go. What a rip off. Drive on to Austria
