“Weekend jaunt in Bern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Modern hotel in great location for walking to city centre with tram stop right outside. Choice of restaurants and breakfast was well organised, plenty of food and choice, efficient service. Rooms on the small size, but modern and clean leaning towards appearance rather than functionality but perfectly acceptable. Staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. Wifi did not work on my iPad, but that may have been me rather than the hotel!

Room Tip: Rooms on fourth floor have good views, but ours was opposite a hospital clinic and we could see pati...

Stayed here on business for 2 nights. Rooms are modern but small/compact. Very clean and crisp hotel. The facilities on site are to be expected with a choice of 3 restaurants on site but a wealth of local options a 5 minutes walk away. The best thing about this hotel has got to be the location. A 5 - 10 minutes walk over the bridge brings you to the bustling shopping area. The team stops right outside the hotel if going further afield.
Convenient, well maintained hotel - will definitely use again when next in Bern.

The hotel is ultramodern with comfortable rooms, albeit a bit smallish, but very well appointed. Internet and meeting facilities and meeting support are excellent. The staff is very helpful both on the hotel side and the meeting side. The breakfast service and the meals and coffee breaks are diverse and well-managed. Only a five minute cab ride from the Central Station.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the city.

I've stayed in Bern a few times and always try to ensure I stay at the Allegro. Their rooms are modern and functional and fine for business users. I notice they do not have an iron but I think one's availabile on request.

Check-in/out staff friendly and efficient.

The WiFi is exellent in the river facing rooms. It is not so good in the 'daylight limited' rooms.

Breakfast isn't cheap but not much is in Switzerland!

Bathroom fittings do not rattle! I have a pet hate of loose, rattly fittings.

Room Tip: Try to get ones across the front facing the river

As i was coming out of hospital with a broken leg and unable to walk i booked a disable room. But when we got to the hotel we found out that the room was s normal room, imposible for me to take a shower. We stayed in that room for one night and then asked to be changed the next day, as soon as i call reception was really helpful and understanding and apologize for the mistake. The problem got solve so that was really good. A bit disappointed that not all the restaurants are open all week around but that was just annoying for us as i couldn't go out to get dinner, i just needed to have room service. Apart from that staff were really helpful and room was really comfortable.

The room was excellent. The attention on the parts of the clerks was excellent, they were very helpful and friendly. The location is perfect since it is near the old town, accross the river. The views were excellent, too.
