Goldener Schluessel is the only hotel from my recent trip to Switzerland that hasn’t emailed me to ask me to review it on Tripadvisor. In keeping with that modesty, it’s an unassuming small hotel in an old arcaded building in Bern, slap bang in the Old Town area which is perfect for tourists. I booked a single room, which on...

I really couldn't get past the filthy shower curtain with blood stains, mildew stains, and some yellow stains on it. The toilet had stains in it. The toilet overlooks the bed and the door is translucent, which can be uncomfortable for some couples. The room was quiet and large though which was great.

A few tram stops away from the main train station, this hotel was situated in a fairly nice location amongst restaurants and scenic streets. Its restaurant took up most of the frontage and you had to enter a side corridor to get to the hotel reception. Room was ready although we arrived before the check-in time. Nice. Room was roughly...

An excellent hotel in the heart of Bern. Located in the heart of the old and classy part of the city, walk to any of the attractions you would want to see. This hotel is a few blocks from the cathedral, the government buildings, the bear pit, the clock tower, and all of the beauty of Old Bern. I couldn't... More

Too noisy. Room faced the street and the bar across the way seems to be the most popular place in town. Even with the windows closed it was very noisy. I had to wear ear plugs to sleep. This place would be stifling in summer as there is no air conditioning. While others have reviews have mentioned the weird bathroom... More

The hotel is very well located in the old city 5 minutes from the Government building. It's a small structure with maximum 25 (I guess) room. Staff very kind and well trained. It's definitely not the luxury structure of Bellevue but very functional, just what you need in business travel. At the end of the day you can take your... More

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. It is in the heart of the old town, just a minute walk from the famous clock tower, but other than that, it is not really worth the money staying here. The hotel is 2 tram stops away from the main station, and about 15 minutes if you choose to... More
