Hotel's Favorite
The hotel is incredibly central (a 5 star is not far, trams close by, etc.) and the staff is really friendly. During this pandemic times, we could order food and eat it in dinning room - on the owner's suggestion (!), and there many such attentions. Our family room was comfortable and while a bit tight somehow (not much space around the big beds) it was very functional and even had a bath which we used with the kids.

The staff at the hotel are extremely welcoming and helpful. One feels that there is the personal touch. We received free drinks while we were there and homemade jam when we left. The hotel is very nice and cosy and spotlessly clean. We are a family of five and stayed in a family room which worked perfectly for us. There is a coffee machine in the rooms. The hotel is ideally located in the centre of the city and so it is easy to go on a walking tour from the hotel around the city. The breakfast buffet is very nice and there is a superb coffee machine. The evening meals are good too.

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Bären. It was a perfect spot to visit all the sites in the region and it’s ideally located in the center of the city. The rooms were spacious and clean. The hosts were very welcoming. Service was top notch and paid attention to all of our requests. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the three course menu was adapted to meet our dietary needs. Highly recommended! We’ll be back!
