This is one place you want to book when you are in Bern and want to be in the old City Center. Small, but modern, efficient and very well kept rooms. A hearty breakfast is included. You will enjoy it in one of the typical old City Restaurants that is run by the same friendly and helpful People as the... More

Convenient location in the old town. The room was small but comfortable, the bathroom even smaller but functional and a small step up from the room itself. My room was well heated and I kept a window open during the night, somewhat of a problem as Rathausgasse was noisy well into the night, and the nearby clock towers chime every... More

Rooms were clean and the servces were good. The rooms however are very small. There is also a step up into the shower/toilet area which could be a problem to older people or to those with a disability

We spent five nights here with our grandson. The old hotel is within walking distance of everywhere (a stroll from the station, a step over to the Zytglogge Tower, five to ten minutes to the Kultur-casino or the Kunstmuseum) and was very quiet for us in a back courtyard room. Modernised in 2008, it has clean-lined toilet/shower units, wooden floors,... More

The hotel has a good location but is a bit expensive for the room you get. My tiny room was about the same size and layout as an interior room on cruise ship. The floor creaked loudly (my apologies to the person below me). There was no A/C thus the room was hot. I was on the courtyard side of... More

We stayed one night in this hotel. We had a 4-bed room which we found very spacious and for such a central location, it was very quiet. The hotel is located only about 3 stops on the tram from the hauptbahnhof. It's within walking distance of most of the main sights and lots of restaurants. We found the breakfast selection... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will recommend it to others without reservation. The room was clean and quiet and the breakfasts very good. I find it annoying that TA requires a minimum numer of words.

We stayed for a night and rooms are excellent, good service at reception and at breakfast restaurant. Very helpful staff at reception compared to our experience at hotels in Rome and Venice, we found Swiss Hotels much better. Everything you want to see in Bern is nearby.

This hotel is situated in the heart of the old town in Bern, and ideally situated for exploring the city. Staff are friendly and welcoming, and the room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. We paid a bit more to have a room on the courtyard side of the hotel after reading others' reviews about the noise level in... More

Stayed here for about a week. Locations is great, central, close to trams/buses. Rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. Compact but comfortable bathroom. Breakfast was basic. Helpful staff. Our room was facing the street so it was a bit loud at night but I didn't mind it. Overall a good hotel.
