“Not too fussy but comfortable!”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

This is a great place to stay in the centre of Bern. The rooms are not too fancy, but are clean & comfortable. I especially liked the fact that my room had a mini-fridge which I could fill with whatever I liked. Indeed, the hotel is close to a supermarket, so one could get some stuff from there to put in that fridge! As well, the staff were courteous and helpful.

The one aspect of this spot I didn't like was the room where breakfast was served. It was served in a conference hall which was not that pretty. They should have served it in one of their restaurants, which looked much nicer!

Other than the breakfast set-up, I enjoyed my stay at this establishment, and I highly recommend it to others visiting this website!

I stayed here for busines and found it lacking in many areas. NO FREE WI-FI!!!!!! They had free internet but via a big cable.....mine didn't work. I found the room very basic. No pre pay movies and the desk was bad to sit at. The view was the back of some old buildings....not very nice....to top it off my room was an adjoining room(luckily the door was locked) but i found i could here my neighbour snore....loudly. Great location if you are a tourist but for business give it a miss

I stayed here because a work friend had stayed there one night....i was there for 3.
check in was fine but the room was cheesy 70's decor.....
what was worse, the view from the window was the decaying back of buidlings...
NO FREE WI-FI....they had free internet via cable(mine didn't work)
the double bed was two beds pushed together and each had a separate duvet!
all plugs in the room where swiss type(usually there is one EU type)
I asked the front desk if they had a convertor.....yes...for 10 francs...and it was a loan....unreal...i could have bought one for that price...
the breakfast was OK but very basic...
sleeping was interesting...i could hear the guy next door snoring!!!!!!!
the TV had no movie channels and only one english speaking channel(CNN)
so as a business traveller i would not recommend it....as a tourist it is very well located

Room Tip: go somewhere else?

This hotel has some of what every business or leisure traveler needs: excellent location near main train station, parliament and the big banks, shops, restaurants, key cultural sites; comfy beds in clean rooms with a bit of sitting space; excellent buffet breakfast to get your day started right; business meeting space and a bar/restaurant for non-business; friendly, welcoming staff. Bonus points for a small empty refrigerator, hot water kettle and more in the guestroom closet. An altogether cool place, as long as you expect that rooms will be on the small side. (So much to do and see in Bern, who cares?!) The main negative: many rooms like mine have just one window that faces inward toward three or four other rooms' one windows, so there's not a lot of natural light and you may need to take care in closing your curtain and/or window for privacy (see my photos).

Stayed here for 4 nights in March. Location is good, within walking distance of the train station and with a tram stop 2 minutes away. The rooms are comfortable and modern with furniture in bright colours, including some cool designer chairs. However, my room was very small, and, perhaps given the fact that the window faced a small closed courtyard, it felt almost a bit claustrophobic. Bed was comfortable. The hotel was very clean throughout. Breakfast was also good, and they were quick to take your coffee order. There is no gym. Overall I have no complaints.

My family spent two nights in Bern on a holiday. The hotel is an easy walk from the train station (5-10 minutes). We booked a triple room for two adults and two children. The room was very spacious with two double beds (i.e. 2 single and a foldaway). The decor was very modern and vibrant, my 6 year old daughter loved the pink bathroom! A small balcony overlooked an alley, but we spent our time wandering the city and not looking out the window. The location is good, centrally located with easy walking access to all the major tourist destinations. It is located right next to the Kornhauskeller, an elaborate and historic cellar with restaurant and bar. The casual restaurant in the hotel, the 7-Stube, was excellent with good service and a 10 percent discount to guests. We enjoyed good Swiss-German cuisine while the children ate spaghetti with tomato sauce. The hotel also offered breakfast that was served on the second floor. It was good and the coffee was very good. Each floor had a basket of fresh fruit greeting you as you stepped off the elevator. It was replenished throughout the day. With small children, we did not attempt the more upscale restaurant on the premises. The wireless internet throughout the hotel had great signals, but require a Swisscom pre-paid card for access. The only negative we encountered was the clocktower or church bells ringing at all hours of the night (even with the windows closed), thus the sleep quality was poor and may not be a a good fit for light sleepers. The bells didn't bother the children, but the adults were a little sleep deprived.
