as I've been to Bern a couple of times, I prefer to spend most of my free time at the gym.
Well at this Holiday Inn they give you free 2.5 hour access to AquaBern - a gym/sauna water paradise.
The roof fell down a few months ago and therefore they closed all the swimming pools. The gym is however one of the best (free) gyms i've ever been to. The hotel gives you extra towels too and you walk a few minutes inside the mall until you get to the aquabern.
Hotel Rooms are new, nice modern shower (no tub). Just no fridge in the room.
10 minutes on the Sbahn and you're at the Central Station. Tram ride is a bit longer (20 min)More
