Impeccably clean, excellent service, very friendly & warm staff. Tram station in front of the hotel 5 minutes away from city centre. Excellent SPA. Good breakfast buffet. Ran by coincidence into a famous French movie actor.

The open plan layout of the hotel room made us feel like we were in our own studio apartment (minus the kitchen), more so as it came with a "key" rather than one of those swipe cards. The room was spacious and appeared to have been newly renovated with an amazingly comfortable bed. We had a beautiful view of Old... More

The hotel is located very near to the bern train station. Stayed there for one night. The room was comfortable. The breakfast was good enough. They do allow to keep ones luggage after checkout. The staff was warm and friendly.

I admit that the location of this hotel is okay for visiting Bern. However, this makes it to become a noisy place. Because of this, we weren't able to rest comfortable during our 4 nights stay. The meals are all right but they kind of lack the true Swiss flavor. On the bright side, the staff delivers a good customer... More

The hotel is located just 7 minutes away from the main train station of Bern. A modern, comfortable and business friendly hotel feels like you are far from the city in terms of quietness, but its very easily accessible. You will be welcomed by friendly staff and room is comfortable enough and has everything for a business person in a... More

We stayed there as we had a birthday-invitation very close from the Hotel. Fair Price but veeery small rooms. The breakfast was not really eatable. Service very slow and unfriendly. We ordered a taxi and as the reception forgot to order it we waited 30 minutes outside for nothing. Tram-station directly infront of the hotel. I would not recommend to... More

Driving from Italy to Switzerland looks like an easy and not horribly long drive. Wrong! We left the Lake Orta area in the early morning, and hadn't considered all of the mountain passes, road construction and winter road problems that were being fixed. Plus, we did not have a reservation for a hotel. We saved some driving time once we... More

My spouse and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in late August 2013. We had a car, so we appreciated that the hotel had a garage and that it was free. Also, even though this hotel is really not located in the old city where you want to go when you are a tourist, the train stops right... More

We were looking for a modern hotel in Bern and ended up at the Ambassador. The good news was the free and available parking which can be hard to find in Swiss city centres. There is a frequent tram service downtown and the hotel can sell you a card if you do not have change for the machine. The rooms... More

The ambassador is a nice hotel. The rooms though are very small with the bathroom pretty much in the room. Breakfast is not included in the price and if you are any lower than the second floor you won't really get a view. The time we stayed there they were renovating the hotel which meant one elevator less working and... More
