I had one night at Hotel Berna having travelled by rail from St Pancras via Paris on June 2nd.
Initial impressions were very good, check in was quick and easy, staff were welcoming ,and friendly.
My room was on the 5th floor and whilst the outlook was not very interesting, neighbouring apartment blocks, the room itself and in particular the bathroom was excellent.
There was tea and coffee facilities and a well stocked 'free' mini bar, which was very welcoming after a full day travelling.
The bed was comfortable and had first class linen not the usual bog standard duvet. The bathroom, as mentioned, was excellent and appeared like brand new, with fresh white fittings, a powerful shower and choice of lighting, bright or a subdued form of ultraviolet. Additionally, the much mentioned rubber duck to take home became a 'travelling companion, for the rest of my trip.
The bar was pretty busy that evening so I went out in the local area to have a meal, although the area is perhaps not the most desirable there are plenty of eateries nearby.
After a good night's sleep, I went to check out the breakfast buffet that many previous reviewers have raved about and can confirm it is that good!! Staff are friendly and attentive and there is certainly everything you could wish for, including a juicer to make your own drink .
Lastly, checkout was quick and easy and I was able to get a Metro ticket to take me to Porta Garibaldi Station for my onward journey (I had miscalculated the location when I booked the Hotel purely on the excellent reports on Trip Advisor ,but is only two stops away) , plus I was given a bottle of water to take on my journey.
So all good for me with Hotel Berna, only one negative and it wasn't their fault, I had a two pin adaptor with me which I could not use as Italy have three pin power points,I asked at reception and they sold me one for three euros, a small niggle only.
