I had a wonderful stay in this hotel. The staff were all great. The hotel is just walking distance to the train station and the Old Town. You can even reach the picturesque Aare River on foot. I also visited Albert Einstein's former apartment and I had a great time. Lovely canton!

This hotel is a reasonable walking distance from the bahnhof even with big luggage (maybe 2 minutes). We had so much luggage, they gave us a larger room since the hotel was quiet. The staff are very friendly and helpful, they helped us get to Emmenthal for a tour (recommended, btw). The hotel itself is nice & typical Swiss style.... More

We were in Switzerland in the last week of March 2016 and stayed at Hotel National Bern. We had the quaint little room (301) overlooking the main street and the tram stop. The hotel is to 7 minutes from the main train station (Bern Bahnhof) and we loved everything about the hotel. My son loved going up and down the... More

The hotel is 5 minutes away from the bern bahnhof. The rooms have no air conditioner. The hotel is in a busy street so you hear traffic noise at night. Old style rooms with uncomfortable beds and pillows. The breakfast was very average as well.

My wife and I spent a night in this large 2-star hotel. I've read some of the reviews and we have no complaints about the National. It's a 2-star, no doubt. But it's clean, well-run and safe. We stayed on the 5th floor and due to the quirkiness took the elevator to the 4th floor and had to hoof it... More

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and it was wonderful! It was an easy walk from the train station and very centrally located. The room was spacious and bathroom was very clean. We had a voucher for a welcome drink at the great outside dining area. Staff was very welcoming and warm. We enjoyed the breakfast very much... More

Stayed 4 nights in late June. This hotel has a number of positives - well located being only a few minutes walk from the Railway station and with trams at the front door and an easy walk to the old town with lots of restaurants and shopping. Reception was friendly enough and rooms clean and of reasonable size. Breakfast very... More

Extremely old fashioned but clean. Kind staff. The international tv channels indicated on the guide were not available. The constant street noise from trams and buses (clearly audible from the fifth floor, room 501, with closed windows) makes it completely unsuitable for anybody who wants to enjoy a good sleep.

Well here I am in a tiny room at 7am with the sound of a TV in the room to my right and coathangers beings moved around and someone washing themselves in the room to the left. Couple these with the absolute racket of trams going past every few minutes (they stopped around 1am this morning) I do not feel... More

Unfortunately the Internet did not work during our two night stay. We asked for assistance at the front desk a couple of times, where we were met with heavy sighs, and were told that the solution would be to take our phones off of airplane mode (inaccurate and also not helpful as that would have meant significant overseas charges). We... More
