“Quite a nice little hotel”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

I stayed at the hotel Ador for 4 nights on a business trip. Check in was fast, efficient and I was provided with all the required information in English. Breakfast had a small but tasteful selection with self serve coffee machines and fresh juice, feels a little like a canteen with the seating layout though. The rooms are small and a bit cramped but comfortable and clean, they have electric window blinds, I thought this was pretty cool. The hotels location is good with many shops , restaurants and bars nearby. If I could recommend any nearby restaurant it would be a Chinese one called Boky, so good I went twice. Requesting taxis from reception us easy but be prepared for a 10 - 15 minute wait. There is a nice little bar at reception and the night porter will serve you after hours. All in all not a bad budget hotel and you get a free rubber duck!

Good location, clean and well maintained rooms. The Sorell Ador stands out from many similarly priced Bern hotels. Breakfast was decent too.

The hotel is in a good location, but the rooms are rather Spartan. Not much room for luggage and no dancing please. The wall could use a coat of paint and the hallways some air freshener.
The breakfast however was excellent.

like all other hotel in bern the room price will vary a lot in accordance with the selected date. if u can get a good price for this it is a very good hotel: silence room, 5 min walk from main station and most of bern pubblic transport. 15 minutes by tram ur in fair area, 10 minutes walk u have the city center. as most hotel in bern parking car is available but with a very high cost per day. lots of cinema in teh area if u r alone. the room, according to bern standard, it is quite big. fantastic breckfast. wi fi @ high price

OK, it's conveniently close to the station. And, the room was clean. This said, given how small the room was and how little furniture there's in it, cleaning it must not take much time... To call the furniture "minimalist" is an understatement: even a bed side lamp was missing. Opening a (small) suitcase it's a challenge given the size of the room. Add to this that it was very hot, and the hotel windows barely open (and what little they open is onto a very noisy street), and it made for a very uncomfortable stay. Breakfast was also not very good, with rubbery bread. Given the price, it's really a poor deal...

Room Tip: The best room is likely to be in another hotel...

Stayed for 1 night for a business trip.

The location was good as it was located close to the Main station. The room was small and too basic I mean "on the rock" basic . It was one of the Hottest weeks in Switzerland the Hotel did not have any Aircondition like most of the Hotels here. The windows were anti suicide style so you were only able to crack the window. I reside in a hot country and know what hot weather is like and this was like the point were I cracked.

Due to the lack of Aircondition the windows in the corridors were opened and then due to the design of the corridors with Neon lamps it was insect city!!!!!

So while I was working I started noticing insects crawling and then when I saw a FLYING ROACH that was it!!! Luckily I had a bottle of shaving cream to apprehend it.

I then went to reception to change my room but unfortunately the hotel was fully booked.
Mr. Hani at reception was working night shift and he was extremely helpful as he went upstairs to see the situation. He then provided me a can of insecticide and an additional fan. I had no option but to Nuke the corridor as it was filled with insects flying/crawling.

The room and corridor was smelling insecticide and had to keep the room door open for about an hour to ventilate it.

So the result for that evening of adventure was that I finally went to bed at 3:00 am and had to wake at 6:00 am for a meeting but ended up waking at 5:30 am in a pool of sweat.



I would like to thank Mr. Hani again for his kind assistance of the situation.

Stayed here for one night for a business trip. The hotel is located just 5 mins from the main station in a 70ties-style concrete building. The room was quite small with a queen size bed, otherwise sparsely furnished and decorated. Bathroom was small, but functional with shower. Everything was spotlessly clean.

Breakfast buffet was good, but not luxurious.

For Bern, this place is of comparably good value, especially if you have or want to stay in the center. Good for business trips, but for a romance you better stay somewhere else. For people having an affinity to minimalism: This is the place!
