Zurich, Switzerland13 contributions5 helpful votes
I am regular guest in this hotel for many years. For business purpose I stay here several times a year. Location is top, right in the center of town, across the Bundeshaus, the Swiss "Capitol". Plenty of restaurants and shops around, everything important within walking-distance or accessible by nearby public transport like Berne Expo. Hotel is family-owned and for business and travel/vacation alike. Standard and service are consistent and unchanging high and have even improved with the recent refurbishment of guest rooms and lobby and the adjacent breakfast room (breakfast is fresh and recommemded). However, what counts most to me is the friendliness and service-orientation of the owners and staff that have not changed for years, which to me is a quality in itself. For those wanting to stay right in the heart of Switzerland's beautiful capital (UNESCO heritage, and deservedly so), in a comfortable place that makes you feel welcome, this is just the right choice.

Great location, friendly staff. Nice and clean, tastefully furnished. Despite the ongoing pandemic, we could enjoy few days in Bern and felt safe. Visiting Bern during the winter holidays is always fun.

The hotel is very safe and gives you that sensation. The city is very beautiful but what really captured our hearts were the employees of the hotel. Super nice and worried about our wellbeing, specially regarding the baby we had onboard with us :)

Clean hotel very near to the old center of Bern. Very kind receptionist, she informed us of the free coffee and tea in the hall for the customers. We much appreciated the upgrade from family room to two rooms. In Bern we suggest to walk around, it's a very beautiful city!
