Went to eat lunch wit the family for the anniversary. Great food, great service and amazing vines. I would definitely return to Schweizerhof at any time and try the Lobster or the oysters. Thanks for the amazing times and until next time.

Our first time staying in the hotel and far exceeded our expectations. The staff were wonderful and pre anticipated our desires. I have visited the day spa on other occasions and it never disappoints. Brigette leads a team of caring, calm, highly knowledgeable and skilled therapists that effortlessly maintain exceptionally high standards ! It’s Wonderful that all products used are natural and non toxic, I don’t know of any other 5 star hotel that could boast this. Our treatment was given this time by Sonja - it was everything we needed. Forgive me for not remembering the name of our female table service (excellence) for the breakfast. She has served us before and is truly an asset to the Jack’s Brasserie. The venue itself is unbelievably beautiful; the decoration has melded the nostalgia and elegance of Bern impeccably. Thank you for the overall positive experience. We will return.

A wonderful hotel in the center of Bern. Very good and attentive staff. An experience for people with Syle. For lovers of smoked goods and coqnac, the Schweizerhof is an ambassade. Also the restaurant Jack's with the very famous Winderschnitzel is an experience.

Location is always important and the location was perfect. 100 metres from HbF. Right in centre of beautiful Bar. Bathroom was the way it should be...big and comfortable. Bed was excellent...I slept too long and missed my train! Dinner was divine. Staff were great. The test: would I go back? Answer: yes, please!!
