Heritage on the outside, upmarket Ikea on the inside. Bathroom was a converted wardrobe. Good locoation. Efficient but rather cold reception staff.

we enjoyed to stay in Bern in this hotel. Very good location, close to main train station. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is very simple, but fresh baked bread was so good. Room is small, but comfortable.

The hotel is situated right in the historic center of Bern, just a few steps away from the city's landmark clock tower. It is even a historic place in itself, being the oldest hotel in town.

The room I was in was obviously just recently refurbished, relatively modern style with an inset bathroom. It was small but functional, actually not as I expected in such an old building.

In the attached restaurant the breakfast buffet was served, which I found somewhat disappointing due to a very small range of food choices. This could take more love. But overall I was satisfied with my stay.

I liked my stay at this hotel. It was a reasonable price for Bern and a great location in the old part of the city. Lots of restaurants closeby. Enjoyed the buffet breakfast. Street was a little noisy at night until bars closed around 1am. Comfortable room. Staff were very helpful especially before my visit when we exchanged emails.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not on the busy street...view is nice but gets noisy late at night.

About 15 mins. from train station. Nothing in room operates without electronic key inserted into room control. Yes, bathroom is insert, so everyone else knows your business. Only one trash can (in the bathroom) in the whole place. Only stayed one night. OK and likely good for some people, but I don't think I would stay here again.

This is a wonderful gem of a hotel located smack in the middle of old town Bern. It is 1 block from the clock tower, 10 minutes from train and shopping, short bus ride to Paul Klee Museum. Lovely front desk staff, hearty European breakfast, adequately sized rooms. Bathroom is a free-standing unit and small but quite functional. And the water was immediately hot! Only negative was rock hard beds but it didn't stop us from getting a good night's sleep. We will definitely stay here again.
