Don't be turned off by the fact that this hotel looks like it is a little out of town. You could still possibly walk from here to the Old Town. However upon check in you receive a card for free transport and the tram stop is right outside the hotel. The main reason I booked here was for the free... More

We stayed at the Ambassador during the one of the hottest recorded temps in Switzerland. The room was so lovely and cool, the AC cranked it out! The bathroom was nice, clean and modern. Room was spacious by Euro standards, had a comfy bed and clean linens. We had a city view, which was nice. The breakfast was quite good,... More

Hotel room is very small with the horrible design. They put a curtain behind the windows, and you simply cannot see the outside or in control to move it up. It controls by front office desk and has a motor. It is like a prison room. Bad hotel, and located far away from downtown. No one in front office friendly,... More

A nice hotel in its own right, but an absolutely excellent stay based on the proximity to the tram. Although the hotel is a little way from Old Town, the tram ride was quick and easy. Great breakfast.

We got to this hotel after a long 16 hour drive. The 24 hour reception staff were very helpful and friendly, and upon arrival we were given free tram passes for 48 hours (covering the day of check in and the following day). Alas as we arrived quite late and it was the "tour de Suisse" the next day (meaning... More

The hotel is very conmfortable with modern design. Very clean and in quiet place of Bern so you can rest after long day. Hotel staff very polite. In some rooms internet could be slower , but ok. Breakfast is great and costs around 30 fr.

Booked as part of a short stay to watch EFC in Feb 15. Completely random choice of hotel, but I have to say it was very, very good. Easy to find on local transport from airport. Bus into the centre of Berne stopped immediately outside hotel and was only a 10 minute journey. Spa facilities were excellent (especially when I... More
