Good business hotel. Rooms are clean, breakfast fine, service good and a complimentary drink when you arrive. Further the hotel has bikes for rent and you get a free railpass for the duration of your stay. I would probably look for something more exciting if it wasn't business, but for business this is a really good hotel

I stayed at the Barren for three nights. It is located a couple of minutes' walk away from the Bern train station. It is a lovely little hotel, clean and staff are very friendly and swiftly sorted out an issue I had on check in with my booking due to a mistake by my corporate travel agent. It was a... More

We picked this hotel because of its location and we weren't disappointed. It's a short walk from the station and located on a quiet street. Right around the corner is a nice plaza with several restaurant choices. You're only one block away from the main street that leads all the way down to the river. We were there on New... More

Bijou... small hotel, small room, rather uncomfortable bed, awkward bathroom. Clean. Staff at desk very efficient; staff in breakfast room not efficient. Breakfast was rather poor... most options were empty plates. Central location. nice to have free transportation in Bern, but this was standard for all hotels. Sure that there is better in this town.

This hotel is very close to the train station and market halle eateries. We requested a quiet room and had no problem with noise. The room was small, but very well laid out with plenty of space to put everything, such as two benches. The bathroom was nice and had a granite counter. Breakfast was good and included yogurt, granola,... More

The Best Western Hotel Baeren is located close to the Bern SBB station, it is very accessible even if you are lugging your luggage around. There are many shops around the hotel, but as we arrived on a Sunday, most shops were closed. Despite it being Sunday, you can always count on the Bern SBB station, because most of the... More

Lovely hotel is located close to Bundesplatz. Easy walking distance to most of the sites, and very close to the train station.Very friendly staff and excellent service. Interior in rooms are simple but comfortable. Rooms don't have minibar (on the first floor is a machine with drinks and snacks).
