Pictures accompanying this site are pretty representative of what you get. Room was spotless and well maintained. Internet and breakfast included in the rate. Interesting automatic shades outside windows drop when sun hits the window. I stayed here for a week while working in downtown Bern. Thought I would miss not being "in the middle of things" but after checking out some of the downtown hotel rooms, this place tops them for size, amenities, and proximity to a modern shopping mall which includes a large grocery store. Be aware however that except for a few places in the food court, the mall is closed on Sundays (as are most places in downtown Bern!). Priority Club membership doesn't do anything for you at the hotel. For 35 CHF (abt 35 USD) a weekly rail pass gives you unlimited rides on ALL public transport including 2 zones which includes everything from Brunnen where the hotel is located and downtown Bern and everything in between. Worth it for a week's stay. Train to downtown Bern Bahnhoff (train station) takes abt 8 min. Bus about 20-25 min. (Cab from Bern Bahnhoff to hotel cost abt $35 USD one way!) Good buffet breakfast variety. Lots of electric outlets in room for all electronics. Would be nice to have a mini-bar refrig in my room.
