Booked this hotel because my favourite hotel in Bern was sold out. This hotel is in the very middle of Bern which give you parking problems. The rooms are slightly above average. The beakfasf is very good, the location is perfect. The price is very high.

Spent 2 nights in early June, close to the train station, and convenient to walking the old city and the River Aare. The room was spacious (we did request and were given one in the rear and it was very quiet), with a good bathroom with shower. It was very hot when we were there and we were provided with... More

This is a quaint hotel, the rooms were modern and updated. It is in a very loud neighborhood, so make sure that you ask for rooms on the back side of the hotel. We were exhausted, but able to sleep with our windows open, just be aware that across the street was live music, we were there on a Saturday... More

Stayed here for one night recently. Room was newly updated but very small. Bathroom was some sort of pre-manufactured "pod" assembly that was very small. TV was was attached to a blank wall with no decorations. No air conditioner. Breakfast was your basic European fare. Cheese, yogurts, fruit and breads. They did have an expresso machine in the back. Very... More

This is a lovely, cozy, well appointed hotel. WIFi in the room wad great. Breakfast Buffet was typical European offerings. Expect super strong coffee as the Swiss drink coffee with their milk as opposed to American who drink milk in their coffee. The location was perfect being a few minutes from the train station and close to many restaurants. Our... More

Overall the rooms are nice and clean, very modern. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is small, but it is free so you can't complain about that considering how expensive it is to dine in Switzerland. What I didn't like is how loud it is outside at night. If you stay here, be sure to request a... More

A short tram ride (one stop) from the train station, in the middle of old town, right around the corner from the Einstein apartment museum. An easy walk to the bear garden or the botanical garden, and less than a block from the clock tower. Rooms were nice, check in and out was easy, luggage storage easy as well. Great... More

Hotel Goldener Schlüssel in Bern is well located near the center of town. The room was very clean and modern--the bathroom is a modular, opaque glass rectangle--very cool, but not sound proof! On our particular visit it was hot and humid, and the only way to get moving air was to open the window. If you're in the economy rooms... More

The breakfast buffet is delicious and generous. The location on the Rathausgasse is ideal - near several historic sites, restaurants and shopping areas. Herr Troxler and his staff are very gracious, and more than willing to answer questions and provide directions/suggestions about sight-seeing in Bern and other nearby towns. Bathrooms are small and modular, as has been noted in other... More

Situated in a quiet alley in the city area, no far from shopping. Rooms are very clean and the modular bathroom concept within the room is an interesting concept for use of the limited space. The walls between rooms are however not very well sound-proofed which means one can hear neighbors talking or TV sets on. No jugs for boiling... More
