We stayed in room 305 which had a small balcony overlooking the rooftops of adjacent Bern residences. I kind of liked the view except that when we checked in to the room there were 3 dead birds on a flat roof under the balcony. I noticed the hotel staff removed them before we had a chance to mention it to the reception desk. The room itself was small but had modern designed furniture with good lighting and a comfortable chair for reading. If it had been warm we might have had problems with staying cool, but the weather cooperated with us and the lack of air conditioning was not a problem. We slept with the windows open and didn't have any problems with noise from the city. The bathroom was fine and had a tub.
The hotel's location is perfect for visiting all the sights in Bern and convenient to the train station. It was about a 10 min. walk even pulling our luggage. We could have taken the tram to the clock tower and then it would have been only a 2 min walk along the Kornhausplatz ( a large popular square). Bern is a wonderful walking town, but we did take the tram back from the Bear Pits to the clock tower and our hotel.
Breakfast was good with plenty of choices and included in our room rate. There was a 10 % off coupon for dinner in their adjacent restaurant that was given us when we checked in. We ate there one night and the food was very good. Internet was free and available in the lobby. We ate at a nearby restaurant on our second night - the Ristorante Luce. It was excellent and we had free entertainment on the Barenplatz square during dinner.
