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

We had difficulty in finding hotel from Bern railway station.The bathroom was the size that you find in cruise ship-small & tight spaces.No central heating during our 2 night stay in April (outside temperature 4 degree C( was told by receptionist central heating only turn on when outside temperature is 0 degree C).Not worth the price we paid.

Walking from the train station to this hotel is a very pleasant stroll in the old city of Bern. The facade of the hotel is historical. But, what a disappointment, inside is a standard airport / suburbean hotel, cheaply modern. Zero charm. And the restaurant, though reasonably good, is the same. So stay there, good and cheap, but spend all... More

The hotel is located 1,2km from the train station Bern. That's a 15 min walk or 20€ by Taxi. As the hotel is down town, there a various restaurants for dinner. The rooms are clean, WLAN is for free. Although the rooms are not luxuriously equipped, it was a nice stay to wait for the meeting next morning.

We visited Bern as a family with younger kids (5, 8, 15) and were pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Goldener Schluessel. The staff were friendly, the rooms efficient, clean and very spacious. The bathroom pod in our room was a fun solution that offered the convenience of a small bathroom without any fuss. Bern is a great city to visit... More

We stayed here for three nights in late January 2014. The hotel reception staff at this hotel were very accommodating and eager to suggest local attractions and good restaurants. In fact, it happened to be my sister's birthday on the day we checked into this hotel, and the reception lady was kind enough to recommend a restaurant up the road.... More

And they are not worth it. The rooms in that hotel were very very small.. Also the baths were too small. There were no toilleteries and... More

Our room was clean, quiet, and spacious. The bathroom was very modern and clean. The attendants at the front desk were very nice and helpful. You can leave your baggage with them, and they'll lock it up in a small room behind the desk... very secure. Great location, too... very safe and only a 10 minute walk from the train... More

The triple room is nice and clean although the lighting could be better. We found the room a little too dark even with all the lights turned on. There are no coffee making facilities in the room. Beds are clean and comfortable. The toilet looks like it has been added in after the room is done up but it is... More
