“We liked the hotel”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

We liked the hotel. from the station 5 minutes leisurely pace. The historic center in 5 minutes. The rooms are clean. cozy. The windows looked out into the yard on some pipe. We are not confused, we have come only to sleep. The most important thing was quiet and we slept peacefully at night. But when we moved to Zurich, then remembered the good word and Bern and the hotel. Staff polite, she helped at the reception than it prompted, and how and where to get there. A good breakfast. The room standard as the photos on the site. If the next time you fly to Switzerland to stay at this hotel.

Business people who hurry from city to city and need to safe time after arrival and before departure will find the hotel an appropriate choice. You should not expect a quiet and very comfortable place to stay. The room offered a very small desk for work on the notebook.
Breakfast covers teh needs of the business traveler. Restaurants for dinner are nearby.

Stayed at this hotel for one night in February 2012 - it is smack in the middle of the city, very convenient for getting around on foot, but also means there is some street noise. The room was spacious and clean, and beds were very comfortable - but it did not seem recently renovated. Breakfast was adequate - but all hot options were already finished by the time we ate at 8:30am. I would stay here again for the convenience.

Close to the train station, but also located in a busy area traffic-wise. In addition, the nearby church bells sounds every 15 mins making it impossible to sleep with windows open. Good sized room however and the pillow & duvet was very comfy. "Standard" breakfast & friendly staff. Pay the bill the night in advance if you are in a hurry upon check-out - extremely slow credit card terminal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the back of the hotel if you wish to stay clear of the roads

Good location, too hot in the summer. If you want to sleep you must keep the window opened, but the street in front of the hotel is noisy. Anyway it's close to the train station and close to a lot of good interesting points.

We had a room facing the main street and station, which when the windows needed to be open (no air conditioning in our room), it was pretty noisy....when the windows are closed, the double glazing cut's out over 90% of the noise.....but the room was one of the largest I've had abroad, very clean and an excellent bathroom.
Be careful of the charging structure, being the capital city and close to Parliament, room rates during the week approach a substantial premium to weekend rates (plus breakfast wasn't included and is 20Sfr per person). Having said that, I can totally recommend; (1) Bern, it is a beautiful city, compact and (2) Excellent shopping (hide your credit cards guy's); (3) Food is better than France and (4) The people of Bern are warm and friendly and the hotel is literally 5 minutes walk from the old town.

Clean hotel room, great location across the street from train station. This made it easy for us since we were using Bern as our hub in Switzerland for day trips to Lucerne, Interlaken and the Alps. The room did not have A/C which made it uncomfortable in the afternoons when we returned to the room. The staff is somewhat unprofessional.
