“Hospitality with elegance and character”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Arrived in Bern exhausted after missing a flight. The friendly staff made my day as they greeted me by name as soon as I came to the reception to check in. They had my documents ready and was escorted to the room almost immediately. It was indeed a room with a view, facing the river and the mountains an the back. Gorgeous view with the snow and all.

The hotel was elegant and full of character. Location was excellent, everything is within 15 mins walking...even the Unesco site. Loved it. We even walked to our meetings in the snow, so convenient and very close to the train station. Claudia the Chief Concierge was great in helping us make the most of our short business visit. Everyone was very hospitable during the stay, including those at the breakfast restaurant. I will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with the view across the river. Gorgeous!

Stayed for 5 nights on business. The hotel is in central Bern next to the old town, capitol buildings, and lots of shopping. Its old, but very well modernized--rooms have heated floors, great views, great amenities. Service is top level--they learn your name and greet you by name the whole stay. Fitness/Sauna is a bit small--adequate, just not a strength. The main restaurant is fabulous. Glad I was funded on business--Switzerland is crazy expensive, but the same everywhere.

We enjoyed this hotel in early January 2013. We had 3 nights there, but used it as a base to see surrounding sites - so we didn't stay in the hotel much or use all of its amenities. However we had one very delicious and well served dinner and the breakfasts are really good too.

All the staff are very welcoming and helpful, which really makes a difference. As we left to catch our train we were given bottles of water - little things help.

The rooms are good - very nicely laid out and large. Small improvement would have been tea and coffee facilities in the room.

Had a few drinks and snacks in the bar, which was also good. Nice atmosphere - seemed mostly businessmen.

The hotel is an easy walk to the station and convenient for the old town and the main shops.

Room Tip: We did not take a river view and I imagine that would be really pretty.

The hotel is unique. It offers the discretion and elegance of a class hotel, while you feel welcome like home. For my bsines stay, the infrastructure was perect. The staff met all my needs. I was perfectly able to recover from the day. The food was sensational and the extra calorie you can get rid of at the Topfloor Fitness (with Sana).
Everything is great clean and modern. I will definitely come again.

Room Tip: Look for a room with mountain view.

It is one of the best hotels we have ever visited and we are always happy to return. It is not only the beautifull building with really spacious room, it is not the excellent view on the river. It would be without al theexcellent staff just empty building without any soul. Thank you.

Not much needs to be told about this hotel, it is luxurious and the only reason I cant give it 5 stars is because if I look at it in a michelin star way the room was a bit warm ( and I think there isnt a spa....) Ha! You see, if that is the worst you can say from a hotel it is a stunner. Excellent location, great view and very friendly staff also to the kids who were given a gift. Prima!

Another terrific hotel. Gorgeous lobby...gorgeous huge hallways...gorgeous room with a balcony overlooking the Arne River....steps from the old city and the famous clock tower...huge bathroom with separate room for toilet and a third sink. And the MOST IMPRESSIVE STAFF! Zoe and Catherine...and the entire staff ...everyone not only knew our name...but that we were having a little stomach bug...so they constantly inquired as to our well being...and when you asked for tea, it was there in the room in literally one minute! The bar tender remembered how I liked my drink servers. e were only there 2 nights, so that all was amazing. Incredible attention to detail, and assistance on the smallest details. Help telling us what track our train to Lucerne would be leaving from...anticipating needs before we could think of them. Great service! Great Hotel. Worth every penny! Wow! also a terrific gym. EXCELLENT experience! Beautiful breakfast buffet...and they even provide a special little bench next to you for your purse, so it does not have to sit on the floor. Lovely people, gorgeous flowers in the hotel! Good food!

Room Tip: Room with a king bed and a balcony on the river!
