Hotel Goldener Schlussel
Ranked #23 of 30 Hotels in Bern
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

The hotel is located 1,2km from the train station Bern. That's a 15 min walk or 20€ by Taxi.
As the hotel is down town, there a various restaurants for dinner.
The rooms are clean, WLAN is for free. Although the rooms are not luxuriously equipped, it was a nice stay to wait for the meeting next morning.

Stayed: March 2014, traveled on business

We visited Bern as a family with younger kids (5, 8, 15) and were pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Goldener Schluessel. The staff were friendly, the rooms efficient, clean and very spacious. The bathroom pod in our room was a fun solution that offered the convenience of a small bathroom without any fuss. Bern is a great city to visit with kids - the kids enjoyed spotting the most details, and there's no shortage of spectacularly odd details on the beautiful old-city buildings. We treated ourselves to an elegant yet child-friendly fondue-dinner at the Ratskeller Restaurant. On a rainy afternoon I can recommend the kids' museum at the Paul Klee Museum, ideal for letting the kids while away an enjoyable afternoon in the small, thoughtfully arranged and very much creative-hands-on studio.

Room Tip: Bern has a lot going on in the evenings in this part of the old city. We didn't find the street...

We stayed here for three nights in late January 2014. The hotel reception staff at this hotel were very accommodating and eager to suggest local attractions and good restaurants. In fact, it happened to be my sister's birthday on the day we checked into this hotel, and the reception lady was kind enough to recommend a restaurant up the road. She offered to reserve a table for us, and told the staff of my sister's birthday. Upon arrival that evening at the restaurant, they gave us both a free glass of wine. Her suggestion was spot on also as the food was great!
In regards to the hotel room itself, it was quite a large room with twin beds. The bed was great and the bathroom was very roomy and clean. Wi-fi was perfect also.
My only complaint was the pillow. It was quite large, but very flat, making it difficult to put it into a good position under your neck. However, it was made of down feather--down feather pillows are not my favourite. Though I know many people who do like them so I suppose it is just a matter of taste.
The pillow did not hinder our sleeping or overall stay at the hotel at all, and everything else was perfect. Really good value and awesome location.

Its location is good. Walking distance to many places. However i did not like Bern. Not so much thing to do. So i just stayed one night. Hotels in Switzerland are very very expensive. And they are not worth it. The rooms in that hotel were very very small.. Also the baths were too small. There were no toilleteries and if you want, they were extra.. So, i did not like the hotel..

Our room was clean, quiet, and spacious. The bathroom was very modern and clean. The attendants at the front desk were very nice and helpful. You can leave your baggage with them, and they'll lock it up in a small room behind the desk... very secure. Great location, too... very safe and only a 10 minute walk from the train station. Breakfast was served in the hotel restaurant and was very adequate... croissants and loaf bread, cold cuts, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, juice and coffee, cereals, and cheese. We paid a lot for our room, but Switzerland in general is very expensive.

Room Tip: We paid a little extra to get a quiet room at the back of the building.

The triple room is nice and clean although the lighting could be better. We found the room a little too dark even with all the lights turned on. There are no coffee making facilities in the room. Beds are clean and comfortable. The toilet looks like it has been added in after the room is done up but it is clean :)
However, there isn't enough space to hang our clothes. Wardrobe is only a small space at a corner.
Breakfast - 2 types of bread, ham, cheese, yoghurt, cereals, nuts, fruits, hard boiled eggs and various types of tea. The lady at the breakfast looks fierce and not very welcoming. Thankfully the reception staff is more friendly.
Location wise, it is slightly further away from the station as compared to some other hotels (we passed by several hotels on our way from the station) but the walk is made bearable with the shops and sights along the way. The hotel is pretty near to the house of Einstein and the clock tower. Having heard reviews about the noise level, we chose the room facing the courtyard so it was very quiet at night.
