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

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
