Hotel is under renovation and it is noisy smelly stinky and very hot! NO air conditioning only a small fan. No water after midnight. No free water. No garbage cans in the room no tissue. No nothing Room is poorly organized. Outlets are inconveniently located very low in corners! Almost no space to walk aroun. Receptionists are unfriendly Not worth money paid The only good point is location and very nice efficient breakfast staff. Food is okay. Everything else is BAD! NEVER AGAIN will we set forth in this overrated hotel.

We stayed at the hotel which is being renovated, so much of it is a mess with exposed fittings & plastic on floor & boxes laying around. The corridors are basically a building site. Not sure why the hotel didn’t just close but I guess profit is more important than providing guests with a proper service. We were told that the building work would only be carried out from 0800-1800. But it started bang on 0715. So no lie- in for us. Staff were very nice, but we were not happy with the awful state of the hotel & the noise. My advice: stay away until renovations finished.

Dear star17city First of all, we would like to thank you for your booking at the Hotel Bern and your feedback. We deeply regret that you could not fully enjoy your stay. At the moment we are modernizing the Hotel Bern in order to present it as attractive and modern in the future. You can be assured that the safety of our guests and the cleanliness of the hotel rooms and other facilities have our highest priority, especially during the renovation work. Should you have felt otherwise, we are sorry and would like to apologize for this.In the planning phase, we decided consciously to carry out the conversion during ongoing operations, thus guaranteeing our 60 employees a permanent job. The plastic planes on the floor were just there to cover the new carpet. There are removed now. From beginning of July the half of our hotelrooms are newly renovated. So from now all our hotel guests stay in a renovated room. Dear star17city, despite the negative experiences, we would be very happy to welcome you back after the renovation to convince you of our "new" hotel. Warm regards - Your Hotel Bern Team

Location was paramount because we took day trips by train. The tram was located a few steps from the hotel which dropped us off at the train station. It would have received a rating of excellence but the hotel is under dramatic renovation. We were only notified shortly before arrival. We were offered a glass of wine in the restaurant for our troubles. The hotel renovation looked like Arnold Schwarzengger had been by. From a PR stand, the hotel guests should have received complimentary breakfast daily for their inconvenience. The hotel staff was impeccable. Once the hotel is completely renovated, it will be the ideal stay in Bern.

The hotel is undergoing extensive renovation and is a construction site. You have to go through the work areas to get to the room. The staff do their best despite the situation. Had been in place to warn about construction work when booking.

I travel for work a lot and this is probably among the worst visits I've had to date. There was major construction going on which would not have necessarily been an issue if it had been reflected in any of the following: Price Advance warning Possibility to cancel Noise control management of construction to only affect parts of the hotel. sticking to advertised times instead of starting to drill at 7 am Even without any construction activity I would never come again as their handling of the issue shows a lack of care and respect for hotel guests.

Dear Sir Thank you for your feedback. Too bad this is anonymous. Unfortunately, you didn't mention anything at the reception. Because we can react directly on the spot. We always try to make our guests' stay as pleasant as possible. To our regret we could not arrange a pleasant stay for you. We hope you enjoyed your time in Bern nevertheless and that we have the possibility to welcome you back soon. Best wishes from Bern - Your Hotel Bern Team.
