Close to all activities, yet still in a quiet location. Large enough with all the necessary amenities and with friendly service. Ideal hotel for both business and holiday travellers at a fair price.

I have been using Hotel Waldhorn for once-monthly overnight stays for about 4 years. I love the quiet, modern, unfussy and ultraclean rooms, the friendly staff, and the easy access from the station by tram 9, less than 10 minutes away. The only issue is the music played in the dining room at breakfast, which is unnecessary and bothersome. That aside, I highly recommend this nice unpretentious hotel.

Stayed 2 nights - from Bern central station, we took tram 9 (direction - Wankdorf) to Spitalacker stop - about 10-15 mins away. 2 min walk to hotel - helpful & friendly staff. Complimentary tea, coffee and fruit at the reception area. Good sized room with twin beds, big closet area. Spacious (newer) bathroom, ample space for toiletries. Breakfast included - good choices (bread, meats, cheeses, fruit, cereal, yoghurt, eggs, juices, coffee, tea). Free Bern travel card provided by hotel... very convenient for getting around the city! Grocery stores nearby. Hotel is 3 tram stops to the Old Town. Would stay here again!

We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed the hotel very much. The underground car park is not large but its lift did just accommodate our mpv. The staff were consistently friendly and helpful. Only negative was slow and patchy WiFi.

The Waldhorn is in a very convenient place with a tram stop very close and the city centre a 12 minute walk away. The room was OK, and clean, although there’s no AC meaning that the room got very hot (although it was a sort of a heatwave whilst I was there). There was a small fan provided but it wasn’t too effective... Breakfast was very basic. Although the hotel was nice enough, I thought it was rather expensive for what you actually get. That said, this is Bern....

Thank you for taking the time to post your review and sharing your experience regarding your stay with us. Most hotels in Switzerland don't provide air conditioning because it usually doesn't get that hot. It would be a pleasure to welcome you again someday. Kind regards from Bern, Andrea Staub

The convenient location, helpful and friendly staff, excellent breakfast and comfortable room combined to make this a good travel option. Q The sole tof my shoe was falling off and a front desk attendant found a glue gun to save the day.
