The hotel is right opposite the the train station which was good. The rooms are of decent size,nothing fancy and very old but with spacious bathroom and a space in between as dresser and also very clean reception area was very small but staff were friendly and helpful. Bathroom basin got blocked on the first day but on complain they immediately fixed the problem. We didn’t use their breakfast facility so no idea about that. Overall, a decent hotel for a short stay.

Having lived in Solothurn for many years in the 1970's. I regularly visited Bern during that time. So coming back to visit my fathers homeland i have stayed in this hotel on several occasions. It is in easy walking distance from the Rail Station, very central for visiting old Bern city. Very clean, beautiful large rooms, I was on the floor with a veranda out of the windows, looking over the centre of Bern, the staff are very friendly and helpful, value for money, worth a stay.

Hotel is in a great location very close to the train station and centre of town. The hotel staff were lovely and friendly and gave us free passes to ride the trams and buses which pull up nearly right outside the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. We didn't have breakfast because we had to leave early the next morning so I can't comment on that.

Like the previous poster, it was very hot weather when we stayed here and the only choice is to keep your window open. Which would normally be fine, but unfortunately our room overlooked the main street train station and it was LOUD constantly. (Including a guy playing bagpipes on the street half the time... nothing like trying to overcome jet lag in a stifling room with a bagpipe serenade, haha!) The weather isn't the hotel's fault I realize, however a fan would have be a great addition in these circumstances not only to help with the heat but also to drown out the noise. The rooms are dated as to be expected from the pics, but the beds were very comfortable and the linens were nice. It's in a super-convenient location literally across from the train section and at the edge of Old Town, which is great. Breakfast was typical continental, and dining room is very pleasant and updated. I'd say this hotel is "fine" just for a quick stay, but request a room in the back if it's hot and the windows have to be open.

Room tip: ask for a room facing the back if it's hot outside, as it will be less noisy with the windows open

I know it seems that a lot of places don't have air conditioning in Bern, but it was in the 80's the day we were there. We were miserable the entire time. The room was large and spacious, but very dated. It is in need of an update! The beds were comfortable, but hard to sleep when you're sweating all night long. Since we had to keep the windows open we got to hear EVERYTHING outside. From the motorcycles to drunk idiots at all hours of the night.

On a positive note the staff was excellent. When we commented on the heat and asked for a fan, she unplugged the one she was using and gave it to us. I wish I would have gotten her name, because she was awesome!

The location of the hotel is great. Easy walk to the train station. We had a room on the top floor which was nice. Great view.

Room tip: Don't stay here when it's hot outside!
