Mies, Switzerland83 contributions68 helpful votes
We very much liked the hotel, the staff are genuinely very friendly and helpful. Room was very nice - we did get an upgrade, so that helps, but really was spacious, well decorated and everything worked. Spa, very nice and bar staff very helpful in making cocktails. Very disappointed that the Sky Bar was closed - I wasn't sure if it was due to Covid restrictions or was being renovated .. and the hotel definitely lacks outside space to relax without this. However, the big but about this hotel, and it is a big but.. is the quality of the food in the restaurant - Jack's Brasserie... please read separate review. In non Covid times it wouldn't be a problem as I sure Bern has a multitude of very good restaurants, but when you are restricted to eating there, it really does let the quality of the hotel down.

Thank you for your feedback. It is a great satisfaction for all of us that you enjoyed your stay and felt comfortable at the Hotel Schweizerhof Bern & Spa. Your positive feedback is high motivation for every single member of staff to take best possible care of our guests. That's right. The Sky Terrace is our only outdoor space in the hotel. Depending on the weather, we open the Terrace each May with a drink special. Since it is a roof terrace, it is still very cold and windy in the spring and since the weather is not constantly beautiful, we are currently still closed. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back again in the very near future. Best regards Maximilian von Reden, General Manager

When the rooftop bar is not open, the lobby bar is a great substitute. Super service, nice comfy chairs & sofas, as well as some discrete seating. The prices are a little high, but then so is staying at the hotel. Indulge yourself and then if you are catching a train, the main station is right next door,

Wonderful stay in an inside facing boutique room - extremely calm and quiet despite the bustling (and very convenient) location of the hotel. Customer service is impeccable: I did have a few requests and everything was taken care of immediately. The room was clean and tidy, although the wall in the shower could use a little deep clean. Breakfast service in the room was always punctual, the food was always fresh and the portions were generous. One thing I noticed though - not all dishes on the tray were covered which would be a nice plus in these challenging times. Hotel highly recommended!

(+) Great location, downtown, 500 m away from the central station (+) Impeccable room and room service (+) Highly friendly staff (+) Sensible dealings with COVID, you feel safe (+) It is possible to open the windows and get fresh air and (+) (+) (+) One of the very few hotels with a sensible internet access policy & up to date technology: you log in once and you can use the internet anywhere in the hotel, any time. No need to log-in again, no need to log-in into different networks in your room or at the breakfast table. Stable connection. Life can be so easy :-)

I had made a reservation for my boyfriend and I on the Sky Terrace for the evening of 4th December to celebrate a special occassion. When we arrived at reception and asked how to access the terrace we were told the terrace was closed that evening😳 I said hows that possible, I have a reservation !? 🤔 The lady at reception got on the phone and along came a gentleman only to repeat what the lady had said. I asked, " Why didnt anybody inform us of this before?" He said we called you but there was no answer- our reservation was confirmed for 7pm via email, I was not asked for a telephone number therefore the hotel doesnt have my telephone number , however they did have my email address. I expected more than a mere "sorry". The correct thing to do in a situation like this would be to reserve a table in another food outlet of the hotel so that when the customer turns up for their reservation they are given an alternative for the inconvenience and still somewhat able to enjoy their evening. Instead we were left to wonder the streets of Bern looking for anywhere willing to accept us without a reservation on a Friday night. Very disappointing evening ☹️
