“Nice hotel conveniently located outside of Bern”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Our room was nice and large with a big bathroom. It was cozy with a slanted ceiling (we were up on the top floor) and a view of the town out our window.

The hotel in the small town of Stettlen was convenient for sightseeing in Bern, just a five minute walk to the train station and then a 15 minute train ride into Bern.

There was a good breakfast included which was served in the restaurant next to the hotel.

The only con is that there is no elevator, so we had to carry our suitcases up the narrow, circular stairway.

We used this hotel as a convenient base whilst visiting our son near by. The hotel is fairly basic but clean and has some traditional features. We got a reduction through Late Rooms.com - nothing is cheap in Switzerland! There was some noise in the evenings from the bar, but it stopped by 11pm. The hotel is conveniently placed just up the road from Stettlen station with frequent trains into Bern and being much cheaper than city centre hotels is good value for the area. It's also possible to do short local walks up the valley, with stunning views of the Alps on the horizon. The hotel managers were friendly and a decent breakfast buffet was served in a small restaurant. Service on our first morning - two young men - was very poor, but on the other two days was fine.
We chose the hotel for it's convenient location and price. I think it probably does mainly business trade during the week.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back would be quieter but insulation is good.

Pros:
We booked this hotel for a base to see Bern and Basel. The room was very attractive, though somewhat small. The bathroom was large and well appointed. There was free parking. The hotel is two blocks from the railroad station and the train to Bern ran every 30 minutes. When buying a pass at the RR station (no attendant, just a machine), Stettlen (the town where the hotel is located) is within Zone 10-11. It is a 15 minute train trip into Bern. Staff was very helpful, but some were a bit limited in English. Breakfast was included and was a nice variety of cereals, breads, cheese, meats, juice, coffee, and tea. The rate was 291 CHF for our two nights (exchange rate very low at this time: 0.87 – 0.88 dollars to 1 CHF).
Cons:
There is no elevator – a spiral staircase leads to upper floors. There appeared to be some rooms on the ground floor, so if needed, you could request those. The restaurant food (ie: for dinner) was very expensive – even by Swiss standards – for example a chicken breast dinner was 26 CHF and that included only the entrée – no salad, soup, etc. If you have an all day train pass, it makes more sense to go back into Bern for a meal – we had one at the train station which, while not fancy, was plentiful, tasty, and relatively reasonable. Contact the hotel directly for better directions – the ones on the booking paper and what I did on Mapquest were useless. We found a family walking in a nearby town with a child who spoke English – the child was able to translate and give us directions – otherwise, would have never found this place. Many streets and roads are not well marked (major highways are) – but finding street signs is almost impossible. Going by train is not a problem, just get off at Kloten, turn right from the RR station and cross the main street – the hotel is right there.
Recommendation:
For an expensive area such as Bern (the capital of Switzerland), this was a nice and relatively reasonably priced hotel. Travel back and forth from Bern is very convenient via the nearby train station.
