“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights beginning of August.
We chose this hotel based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. Of course it lacks the amenities of a five star hotel, but what you get is good. Rooms are clean, neighbourhood is quiet and staff is genuinly friendly and helpfull. Breakfast, which was included in the roomrate, was really good.
Centre of Bern is within walking distance.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 midweek night with my wife and infant in July '13.
The hotel is approx 20 minute walk from the old town of Bern but the walk is pleasent, albeit an uphill walk on the way back from the city centre.
The rose garden is close by and if driving from elsewhere in CH access is convenient for the motorway. Public transport links are within 5 minutes walk from the hotel also.
The room was nice and spacious - we had a cot in our room and did not feel cramped. There is no air conditioning but the hotel did provide a fan for us very promptly when we requested one.
The staff were pleasent although the lady at reception in the morning when we arrived did tell us specifically that the room did have air conditioning so that was a bit confusing.
The restaurant is nice and again the steff were very nice and friendly to us and our little girl.
Check-in and check out was painless and bag storage was a available also.
Breakfast was nice with a range of pastries, fruit and yoghurts available.

All in all this is a nice hotel and I would stay here again if in Bern for a few nights. Nothing special to report but they did the simple things well which is all I required for a single nights stay.

  Good small unpretencious  hotel with very helpful and welcoming reception staff. Small clean room. Very quiet residential neighbourhood, absolute silence at night -the only sound was that of a bird adjusting itself on a treebranch. 
    Not expensive for Switzerland. 
     Five minute walk to the tram station with five minute ride to the old city center. Near the tram stop a lot of small lovely cafes. 
   City center is at walkable distance -some 20 minutes. 
    Small underground parking for a fee, but it seems to be possible to park nearby for free. 
     No aircon, a fan was offered at hot weather. 
     Lovely isolated garden to enjoy a drink after a day of sightseeing. 
     Comfortable bedding. 
     Breakfast good. WiFi free everywhere.

This is def a great place to stay if visiting Bern. The staff were supremely helpful and friendly, the beer garden a nice place to relax, location good (very easy to get into the city centre by tram), neat surrounding area...and the breakfast...was fab! Lots of little details which made the stay that something extra, loved the egg cooker! Would def recommend and return. Thank you.

The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood two steps away from the panoramic rose park from where the city center is a walk away. The room was clean and comfortable. What we liked best was the breakfast lounge (very nice eco-chic design). Definitely recommended!

As a city, Bern was a bit of a disappointment. The Alpenblick, however, made up for it! The restaurant is fantastic. Best food we had in Switzerland. The family room was comfortable and highly functional and just a beautiful place to be. Go to the Botanic Gardens, not far from the hotel, and don't worry about not being in the historic centre. It is far better to be at the Alpenblick and walk or tram into the centre when you want. The Alpenblick is quiet and charming in an efficient Swiss way.

This hotel is located on the other side of the Aare river from the old town of Bern, quite close to the panoramic views of the Rose garden. It is walkable to the historic sites but quiet enough that you feel sheltered from any hustle/bustle. The outside of the two connected buildings comprising the hotel is unassuming but the inside has been nicely decorated. Rooms are sparse but modern with a safe, small but functional bathroom, and functioning free WiFi. Best of all was the service we receivede from all the staff (esp. Corine) right from checkin to a delay we had checking out - when our rental car wouldn't start and we had to wait for service. The staff was so hospitable, allowing is to use their phone, bringing us a complimentary drink as we sat on the patio, etc. Bern is not a cheap city, but this unassuming hotel just outside the main touristy center is amazing values here we received service characteristic of a top-notch property.
