This hotel is charming and quaint - you can see the attention to detail in how it has been decorated. The rooms are big and there are wooden floors throughout. Our room overlooked a courtyard between multiple buildings and hence it was quiet even with the windows open. The staff were so friendly and helpful - we were shown around... More

I am spending the last of my 6-day stay at Martahaus because I am so impressed. I come to Bern annually to attend professional meeting and have been to a number of hotels, in the city and outside. None compare in value-price ratio.
The location is excellent--near main train station, situated between two main bus lines the 20 and 9--making the... More

We had two nights staying here it's a nice quiet area within two tram/bus stops of the old town. Not a long walk either but the Pension give you a ticket which entitles you to free public transport around the city. Buses and trams run very frequently and are easy to use. We had a good sized room with very... More

I spent one night at Marthahaus in Bern. Room was well-equipped and clean looking! The shared bathroom was good and the sweet and salt breakfast was excellent! 20 minutes by foot far from the city centre. Low price. I suggest it!

This B and B hotel has always been my regular when I visit Bern to attend meetings at the Universal Postal Union Headquarters. The recent renovation of the breakfast area and rooms makes it even more clean and comfortable. The wifi and breakfast are excellent features of the hotel coupled with the friendly staff and quiet surroundings. On top of... More

The breakfast is rich an of good quality. Finally the price is cheap and the owners are very kind. If you want to spend a couple of days in... More

We stayed here 2 nights in October while exploring Bern and surrounding areas. The Pension was perfect for us - very clean and comfortable. It was convenient to the old part of Bern, and the train station - also nearby bus if you didn't want to walk into town. The breakfast was very good, by European standards, and the fact... More

This was my second stay here. This time, I stayed in a twin room with private facilities. It was warm and comfortable. It wasn't too far from the station to walk, but if in a rush, take the #20 bus. The breakfast was basic but enjoyable and I liked that you could get a hot chocolate/coffee/tea at night. It was... More

My mom and I spent two nights at the Marthahaus last spring. It is a very nice location about 10-15 minutes from the central station. Everything is nice and clean but you have to keep in mind it is a pension so it's not very cosy or stylish. But it has nice ensuite rooms, a good breakfast with local food,... More

Switzerland is very pricey so when it comes to accommodation Marthahaus is economically a wise choice. Rooms are very basic, no frills. Older TV, often shared bathrooms unless you specify otherwise. We were in the attic family room, 4 beds, 5th floor, very tight for space and a bit stuffy in Aug, no air con. Berne is such a beautiful... More
