Stayed in the hotel one night. The hotel was recently renovated and the price was pretty decent- less than 200CHF. Hard to find a decent hotel in Bern around that price range sadly. We chose the hotel since it got pretty good reviews, good location, and the recent renovation. Good: Rooms were clean, staff friendly, flat screen TV in room... More

The Goldener Schlussel is a perfectly adequate hotel. It's not going to be something you'll tell your grandchildren about someday, but the rooms and fine and the place is clean. The staff is very helpful and speaks English well. Breakfast is good. it's a very typical European 3-star hotel. The selling point of this hotel is the location. It's in... More

We've just returned from a trip in Switzerland and spent most of our time based in Bern. Excellent launchpad for many places - Lauterbrunnen, Schilhorn, Trummelback falls, Grindelwald Geneva, Lausanne, Zurich. We stayed at the Goldener Schlussel, and my experience has been very positive! What can I say - great location, close to the shops, centre of town, rstaurants, bars... More

Although the rooms were recently rennovated in 2008, they were extremely small. No place to put our two small travel bags because the bathroom took up 1/3 of the room. The worst part was how thin the walls were. Our neighbors checked in in the middle of the night and we actually heard them talking as well as go to... More

We stayed here for one night on Nov. 22nd for a price of CHF 158 (Dbl Room) including breakfast. The hotel is in a great central part of town in the "shopping arcade" section and is about a 10-15 min. walk from the Train Station. The Goldener Schluessel is by far one of the less expensive places to stay so... More

We stayed at the Goldener Schlussel on July 25 for 1 night while visiting Bern. This is the second time that we have stayed at this hotel (the other time being in January of 2005 for 1 night). We booked this hotel this time based on our experience the first time. Unfortunately, the hotel is very different depending on the... More

This old property is in a great location. Convenient to most all of the old town. Room was small but not a problem at all. The restaurant served very good swiss food. The breakfast was ok. I've definately had better breakfasts in a lot of other Swiss and European hotels, however. The reception was a little odd, being an office... More

I go to Bern frequently on business, and this is the hotel I always stay at. It's a no-frills place that offers good value for money in the center of an expensive city. The rooms are a bit small, but perfectly clean and comfortable, with cable TV. The staff are very pleasant and helpful, and the breakfast is great. Their... More

This hotel is a very old property in the old town section of Bern Switzerland. The reception area is a hallway and office - there is no front desk or lobby. The staff was cordial and efficient. Our room was on an upper floor on the street side. It was large and comfortable with a view of other old buildings... More
