We spent a week-end at this hotel and we would thoroughly recommend it. The hotel is housed in an old, grand, building with very high ceilings, also in the rooms. The floors are all wooden and the general feel is very cozy. There is not much furniture in the rooms, but this leaves them with a sense of space and... More

The location was good--close to the railway station and walking distance from the Clock Tower, Parliament building and the Aare bridge. Sadly, nothing else was good. The room was extremely small; the bathroom was as good as non-existent. The breakfast was also not good--hardly any options. It was too pricey for the facilities it offered. Not worth even if you...

I can barely think of anything positive of this hotel except for its ideal location near the railway station and its friendly staff. The room is too small for two person and with two tiny beds - in perpendicular position. Sometimes I just can't tell if I am in a hotel or in a college dormitory. One can basicly any... More

The location is great, 5 min walk from the station. The service is also really good and the staff is very friendly. The rooms though are ugly. Clean but old. Good enough for a night in transfer but not more.

I booked a single room for one night. I got a very small room without shower or toilet. These were shared between 5 rooms on the floor. The person at the checkin was not very welcoming. I had to pay when I checked in. I was not impressed and for 105 CHF a night, I think it is rather poor.

Me and my two friends decided last minute to head to bern and did some very quick research and picked this hotel. It was a great find!! It's not always easy to find a room for 3 people, but this place was really nice, super clean and rather spacious! The staff were really friendly and helpful, and the breakfast didn't... More

Hotel National, Bern, is situated 10 minutes walk from the main railway station. Even that close from the station, it is a quiet part of Bern. The hotel has rooms with private bathrooms, and others without. Shared facilities. We had one with private bathroom, even on the tiny side it is perfectly fonctional. The room had views on the main... More

Located near the main station. Free medium quality wifi. Reasonable breakfast. Very expensive(for what they offer), really old and without maintenance for a long time, don't allow late check out, extra small room. Heater didn't work properly and there isn't air conditioning. TV only with germans speaking channels As Bern hotels are expensive, better to stay in a dorm, or... More

The most interest part of this hotel its the elevator! it is very very very old! I enjoyed riding in it to go to the lobby. The lobby is in the... More

We enjoyed our stay here. It was a convenient location and the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was average for Switzerland. Ours had a window over a central courtyard. We asked for a fan to keep it cooler, which worked great and we were comfortable with that. We had a shared bathroom, which was just down the hall.... More
