The hotel has been promoted from a 2 to a 3 star. I don't know how. This time, I got an extremely small room with a defective shower. The floors were full of construction dirt and the elevator also. The hotel has a small but nice breakfast.

We checked in yesterday expecting somewhere to park the car which was connected to the hotel. Yesterday we came back about 9:00pm and found every single space had been taken up. Due to the continuing renovations happening in the 2nd building and garden I was awoken to some person drilling in the 2nd building (the building I was sleeping in).... More

My wife and I stayed there for five days. It was reasonably priced given the high prices in Bern. The room was very nice and the style was very modern. It was an easy walk to the train station (10 to 15 minutes) but one could take a bus easy if they wanted. The breakfast was good and was the... More

Nice comfortable hotel, friendly staff, good location in Berne. Only problem - no parking provided, but local parking (blue squares) was easy to find close by (remember to display a ticket for each day).

Stayed here for one night with my boyfriend - I was staying in Bern for 3 months but there was only room for one in my dorm room, and my boyfriend came for a holiday. Even the standard double room was very spacious, it was clean and there was no noise whatsoever on a Friday night. It's about a 10... More

Stayed just the one night and it was fine for what I needed (i.e. a bed and some breakfast). It's in an ok location. Not far to walk from the station, yes it's uphill, but it's not far. Evene easier to get to by using the lift from the station, which would have been great to know about in advance... More

We slept here twice in 2010. Nothing special, clean, good price and value, perfect for one night. Room was small, but clean, bathroom clean, ok. Bit far from the center but we were by car there. I would chose again for one night in Bern

We visited Bern as part of a big road trip last year. This hotel is very modern and stylish. Very clean and our room was huge. Lots of space for clothing, great bathroom. Just what we needed after a long drive. No fuss, no problems. We only stayed the night and then drove to Lucerne. The receptionist was very helpful... More

We stayed here two nights. The hotel has a weird layout, we stayed in a separate but attached building. Nota huge deal, but thought I'd mention it. Staff was friendly and helpful. When we booked it it appeared very close to the train station and it is. But it's uphill. Which we didn't know. Not a steep grade, but a... More

This hotel, that you fail to notice and quite often pass it by without seeing the entrance, is composed of two buildings, one up front and one in the back with rooms that I found comfortable – at least the double ones. The room in the back had elevator access, but was a bit difficult to get to with a... More
