The hotel is part of the mall of Bern Brünnen, called westside.ch and is located only a 8 minute trainride from Bern central station. the mall has some good dining options such as Cha Cha, a few italian restaurants and a Starbucks.
The rooms are smallish but Ok, no minibar, no carpet on the floor and the special Holiday Inn green color...you have to like this for 200 CHF a night.
Breakfast was very good, one asian male server was very pleaseant, thank you for your attention!
Unfortunately the hotel seems to have a very unmotivated staff, the room they assigned us to in the first place was already occupied when we came in, fortunately the other client was all dressed up an watching TV. This was very embarrassing for all parties. When we came back to the reception they simply said: sorry, you can have a coffee on the house. I honestly think this was not appropriate.
Staff never even looked at you to say hi or goodbye. While checking out, we overheard the reception staff talking badly about other clients. They said some nasty things in Schwitzerdütsch about a couple that asked whether they accepted payments in Euros.
