The hotel is modern, clean well equipped and 5 mins walk from Bern Western rail way station and tram stop. Room very good size and well equipped. Breakfast and restaurant good. No leisure facilities but hotel connected to large shopping centre and guests get use of the leisure facilities in this sport centre.

Loved the fact this hotel was out of the bustling city noise and concrete for a change. It was relaxing and peaceful looking at the lovely countryside view from our window. Great room with all facilities needed (including free bottled water), super clean with comfortable beds & pillows. Was great to open the window for fresh air and could even... More

This is a modern hotel with very good rooms. The beds were comfortable and facilities very good. The hotel is well outside the city centre which makes it difficult to go wandering and exploring for an hour or so. You would have to go out for the day and stay out. The hotel lobby has an entry straight into a... More

A modern hotel with very spacious rooms, good breakfast (as is always the case with Holiday Inns) fast free Internet and even option to select pillow type, i.e. everything you need. The only con is the location, it's quite far from the city center — but still right next to the tram/commuter train stop, and the hotel offers a free... More

If you need to go to Bern, this is probably the lowest priced 4 star hotel in the area....but be prepared! The breakfast is 25 Euros per person and the parking is not free!! The executive rooms are pretty good size, but very basic. Not a good value for the money at 300 Euros per night!!!

I stayed at this beautifully clean and well appointed, modern hotel for two nights for a conference. As others have reported, it's outside the city centre and attached to an upscale shopping centre and just a few metres from the station. It is quite a distance from Bern airport and beware that if you have a late arrival and need... More

Holiday Inn Bern Westside is out of the city and was advertised as being 8 minutes in the train to the city centre. What we didn't realise is that the hotel is attached to a large modern shopping centre in a newly developed housing area. The railway station is about 100 meters from the hotel but the tram that goes... More

I stayed at the hotel when visiting Bern to watch a football match. The location was great in what looks like a regenerated part of town and a great job they are of doing it. Tram and train station outside the hotel are ideal for getting in and out of the city centre. Hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff... More

We stayed here in April 2014 and enjoyed our stay. This hotel is in a great location and I loved looking out on to the hills (and waterslide!) out of our window however it is a 20 minute tram ride (the stop is just outside the hotel entrance) in and out of the centre of Bern, though we quite liked...
