This delightful hotel is in the old town within walking distance of the train station as well as the clock tower. The staff is very friendly and helpful - they even have bicycles to loan out if you want them as well as offering a free pass for Bern public transportation. We checked in early but our room was ready... More

Really enjoyed this hotel, the room we stayed in was a loft/suite combination. It was very spacious. My only issue was the size of the toilet as well as the room service. The toilet was one of those train sized ones!! The room service is non existent, even for water you have to go down and fetch it. The location... More

I stayed here for two nights on a business trip. We took a taxi (18 CHF) from Bern station however it's actually quite easy to get to on the number 9 tram though you'd need change to get a ticket. On arrival there had been some mis-communication which meant a quiet room had not been booked for me and the... More

Fine location, peaceful rooms and a good mix of tradition and modernity. This is how Switzerland can be illustrated at his best. Give a try and be seduced by its charm and perfect location. Interesting landmarks and plenty of restaurants nearby.

One night was not enough and we would not hesitate to return to this very charming hotel with friendly helpful staff. Good breakfast and comfortable room. Lunchtime menu was very good and excellent price.

This hotel is in a very old building and surrounded by even more old and fantastic buildings. Unfortunately this hotel has lost most of it's old charm to fire-proof doors that were clearly bought only for their practical use with no thought of the looks. The same goes for the lighting in the hallways. The most important factor for me... More

I just stayed at the the Hotel GS and I have to say that the stay was very good! It is about a 15 to 20 minute walk to the train station. My mother and I made the walk at after 10pm and we felt safe getting to the hotel. Unfortunately I didn't have a map of Bern handy so... More

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
