Since all hotels in Bern are quite expensive, this was actually quite a good value. It's a modern hotel located in Westside shopping centre.
The rooms are good, quite spacious, the only drawback is the glass doors on the bathroom - but this is modern design, so you have to live with it. Breakfast was good offering a wide selection of food. I arrived in Switzerland by car, so it was good to have parking in the garage below the hotel. By swiss standards the parking is quite cheap, 0.10CHF/hour for the first 10 hours and then it goes to 1CHF/hour. The rail and tram stations are just outside the hotel, in case you want to use the public transport.
When checking in, the staff told us that we get a free entry into BernAqua aqua park for each night we stay. This was really cool, since entry into BernAqua is quite expensive and it's really good.
The staff were also quite helpful, so overall, quite a pleasant experience.
