Unfortunately during our stay the street was undergoing major works. Our room was at the front of the building and very very noisy. The room itself was small but clean. Good location No air conditioning however

Our 34 modern, charming and comfortable rooms are tastefully decorated. The hotel is located in the pedestrian quarter and has very quiet rooms overlooking the courtyard. All rooms have shower, WC, radio, direct dialling telephone, TV with flat screen, public wireless LAN, safe and hairdryer. There is an internet corner for your convenience at the reception. Open 364 days a year, our restaurant is an inviting and typical old town building with excellent Swiss Cuisine. Try one of our classic specialities such as Maiskroketten, Salade folle, Wiener Schnitzel, Suure Mocke or Lammmignons. With pride we serve the best Swiss sausages for instance Glarner Kalberwurst, Tessiner Luganighetta, Berner Zungenwurst or Boutefas from Payerne.

There is no on-site parking. You may get lucky and find a space on the street, but it's not likely. I have been to Bern many times and I do know there is public parking within a few minutes walk from the hotel. The front... More
