“I feel like a Swiss Miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The hotel is very quaint and clean. The staff was very sweet, and ready to help, as stated. The room was small, but clean and comfortable. The decor was quite straightline with a very Swiss element. Sort of like Ikea meets a Swiss Alpine climber. I really enjoyed my stay here, as I could see many Swiss nationals, and soldiers at the hotel. This told me that even the local people enjoy coming here. The location could not be beat. Breakfast was a grand array of choices and while enjoying breakfast, you could see the carraige horses in training. This felt like the real Bern, as there are shops and groceries very near by. This was a short walk to the Breitenrain (#9) tram, which ran most efficiently. I had originally planned to stay just a few hours, and leave early in the morning, but Bern was like a Russian Doll (Matryoshka nesting dolls). Each time you thought oh this is nice, there was another beautiful thing to see. I will plan some additional days for Bern on the next trip, I did see the Bears, the small rose garden and many wonderful things in old town, which was a very easy commute from the hotel. However due to time, I missed the Paul Klee museum. Again staff and stay were most very good. I will stay here on my next trip. Underground parking was a little dicey for those who don't do it often. Thank you staff for helping with this.

Room Tip: I had a single room. The bed may be a little small for a taller person, also the showers was quite...

Hotel Alpenblick is not a five star, but it's quite good quality , especiallly for its 3 star.
The rooms are clean and light, the water is provided, the breakfast is very good and is included in the room price. The staff is very friendly and always ready to help.
Plus location is good, close to the famouse Rosengarten and is basically 15-20 minutes walk to the downtown.
Good place to stay in Bern for sure.

I stayed at the Hotel Alpenblick 4 - 6th Aug 2013. I can honestly say that I had a fabulous stay here. The area for breakfast is gorgeous and you can have fruit and tea all day. The staff are so friendly, smiley and helpful with places to go etc. The hotel is well located and you can go for a lovely walk to Rosengarten, River Aare and Barenpark to see the adorable furry family of bears awww!

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.
