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.

Hi, this is a great little spot for very reasonable price to stay in Switzerland. You are in the heart of everything, charming, little Swiss city and you will be staying in the old town. The person who us running the place have been running it over 30 years. He really cares and tries to help. Parking is probably the... More

Great position in the old town. Clean and comfortable good sized rooms. Small compact bathrooms. My daughter had a single room which was much smaller than ours with the same size bathroom. Her room was clean and bright.. Reception staff were very helpful with information about Bern and the train to Zurich. Breakfast was basic with the usual European selection... More

Our family stayed there last month. The room was very nice and large for European standards. It was during the World Cup and the bar across the street was very loud, but after closing the windows we were able to sleep comfortably, so the rooms are well insulated for sound. The location is great. A short tram ride from the... More

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
