People are nice at the reception. Not sure that rooms are very well isolated from noise. The rooms are not very big but bathroom, toilets and room itself are clean. I think that the main drawback is poor choice for breakfast.

This hotel is not cheap, even for Bern. There is also a faint smell of cigarette smoke throughout the hotel, and the breakfast is adequate, but with a limited offering. My room was quiet, and the staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed two nights with work, and it was your typical 'not very good European hotel'. The worst bit was the pillow. You only get one, and it's hopeless. Combined with a not very comfy mattress and no 24hr reception it's a passable place to stay in a decent location, but not somewhere I'll be rushing back to anytime soon.

We stayed here for just 1 night so I am not sure if that's enough time to really give an in-depth review. The location is perfect as it is in the old town. However, the room we stayed in was very small and I found the bathroom arrangement a bit weird. No toiletries were provided in our room which I... More

We had an excellent visit at Hotel Goldener Schlussel for three nights. We were upgraded to a large room in the back which was quiet and very nice. The hotel staff were extremely helpful with travel advice and reservations. Breakfast was good and plentiful. If we return to Bern, we would come back to this hotel.

The hotel is easily reachable on foot from the RR station, unless you are carrying lots of bags, The inside of the building is recently updated and modern even though the building appears to date from the 1500's. Berne is beautifully maintained very old city to be explored on foot. The room was OK with hard wood floor. The bathroom... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was good - walkable from the train station, and close to downtown. But the room we had, for the price we paid, was very poor. I have been traveling for decades, and I know what to expect in a major city, in a good location. But our room, which was definitely NOT... More

After walking the old town, looking at menus, we finally decided on this restaurant. It looked spacious, clean and attractive. We both took their menu's recommendation which was lamb filets with their twist on corn fritters. The lamb was simply delicious as was everything else. Service was attentive and pleasant...the price was not cheap but standard for Switzerland and well... More

Our room was spacious and well appointed with comfy beds , safe, desk and easy chairs. Bathroom is an interesting pod - was a little worried the floor would flood when showering but it didn't. Breakfast pleasant. Building lovely and location can not be beaten

Hotel Goldener Schlussel is located in the Old City in Bern. It's a short ride to the hotel on a tram or bus from the train station. The hotels in Bern offer a free public transportation pass for your stay including the trip to the hotel (with a confirmation letter from the hotel.) It's a short walk to the hotel.... More
