The hotel is well located in the centre of the old city of Bern, about 15 minutes walk from the station or a couple of stops on the tram (free with pass provided by hotel). The room was clean although lacking refrigerator or tea/coffee making facilities. I was surprised that there was no night porter in a hotel of this... More

Stayed for 3 nights in october. Street outside quite noisy but wasn't an issue as it was cold and we could keep the window shut. The room wasn't massive but good value for the location. Free wifi and included breakfast very good and staff very friendly/helpful

Really loved the convenient location and price was very reasonable. Beds were comfortable and rooms were very clean. Staff was very helpful and welcoming - I would definitely come back. Made for a great experience in Bern during the onion festival

I had a great experience at this hotel. Upon arrival, the front desk staff were very efficient and explained everything I needed. I have visited Been many times and it was especially nice to get a complimentary pass for the buses and trains. Breakfast was good in the restaurant, very Swiss, but I am not a breakfast person anyway. The... More

A bit disappointed with this hotel. Elevator was out of order. Holes in the sheets. Dirty floors. The location is great with fairly easy access to the train station. Our room was evidently one of the quiet ones in the back, so street noise wasn't a problem. It was cool and rainy during our visit so the lack of AC... More

The best things about the Goldener Schlussel are its location, right in the old city, and excellent staff. The regular rooms are a bit small for 2 people, so I would suggest asking for the beautiful junior suite. All rooms are very clean and stylish. Also, as others have mentioned, avoid the street side rooms, as they are noisy. The... More

We had originally booked north of the river at Hotel Alpenblick but changed to this property at the last minute because they had an online special of CH 190 for the back courtyard rooms (the reportedly quieter, bigger rooms - which was accurate). It was also so much more central. Hotel reception is terse. Both the day and evening staff... More

This hotel is in a nice location in the middle of the old town. The desk receptionist was nice, and the rooms are decent. The bathroom is a yellow glass box, which is interesting, even if a bit cramped and not ideal for privacy. The beds are hard, but that's ok with me. The official hotel description says that their...

As far as singles go, it was an average size located on the top floor. There was an add on pod type bathroom that made the layout a little strange, but okay for a few nights. The main issue was however the lack of air if it is warm. The room was unbearably hot and impossible to sleep in, without... More
