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

It seems Bern is very expensive, and this hotel offered minimal amenities compared to others at this same price, but it seemed to be a good value for Bern. The room was smaller than the bath at other hotels I had, and the bath was down the hall. The bath was often occupied by other guests who had apparently spent... More

We stayed here one night on an overnight stopover between Budapest and Amsterdam. Bern itself has a never-never land quality to it, and this hotel epitomizes this atmosphere. We had the attic room. The cage lift stopped on one floor and we had to walk up with our bags in tow to the next floor. The room was narrow with... More

I stayed there with my 2 kids (11 and 8) in a 3-bed-room and my father who had a single bedroom. His room was quite small, ours spacious. I have booked it over www.booking.com. It was nice, clean and had a nice old elevator. Unfortunately, there is no hotel parking space, so you have to park in a parking house... More
