“Nice Place; Great Location”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We really enjoyed this hotel. The service was exceptional. The bar in the hotel was excellent as was the adjoining restaurant. The room was spacious with a full bar and Nespresso coffee machine (all included). Bathroom was very modern. If you're a tourist, this hotel is very convenient because you can walk across the street to the train station and quickly get a train to nearly any point of interest in the country. Bern is also a very relaxing city with a lovely old town and many quality restaurants.

Superb design Hotel done with great taste and practicality in mind! Great professional and friendly team! The SPA is great and very cosy. And the Sushi’s are among the best ones in Switzerland! They can expect my visit again!

The hotel exceeded in all respects. Room was really well designed and extremely comfortable, nice layout, good internet, great health club and spa, service was great. My room wasn't large but it had a small balcony off the bathroom. It overlooked the plaza and the train station but was completely quiet when I closed the windows. The lighting was good, and the materials were luxurious. Nothing cheap about this place. The location is great too, as others have noted. Could not be more centrally located.

Actually I booked this hotel for my solo weekend in Bern only deciding when reading other Tripadvisor reviews. I made a good choice! Excellent position; you can reach by walk all the city attractions and the main business locations. Clean rooms, awesome bathroom, comfortable bed.
The hotel was recently renewed so everything is brand new.
Free spa access for hotel guests and 24/24 access to the gym.
I had a queen size room. Good space, comfortable bed. Free Nespresso coffee and free tea choice every day in the room. I didn't have any special view... i must say i didn't ask! but try to ask if they have city view rooms, it should be even more charming!
Unfortunately it was raining and windy, my regret is not having had a drink on their wonderful skyterrace bar !
Price is what to expect by Schweizerhof hotels...but you pay for what you get. Service and accommodation team as well as spa and reception staff are one of the kindest I ever met in Europe.

We stayed in Schweizerhof for a weekend in April.
The hotel is situated in a perfect location, right opposite the railway station and exactly at the beginning of the picturesque old town of Bern.
The rooms are really stylish. The decorator has done a great work.Awesome beds,excellent sleep quality.The bathroom is state of the art.Everything is new and clean.
On our first night we had a late dinner at the lobby.Everything was excellent and so was the ambience.
We had continental breakfast at Jack's Brasserie. The service was perfect and the musli yoghurt delicious.
Everyone working at the hotel was efficient smiling and polite.
We would definitely stay there when in Bern again.

I had the pleasure to stay at the Schweizerhof for a night and while it was a short stay it still was a pleasant experience. We arrived by car and finding the place was easy as the hotel sits right across from the main train station in Bern. Arrival experience was very good from the doorman to the desk agent. Check in was quick and we were provided a shot of fresh juice and warm towels(it was quite cold outside). Rooms are well appointed and you can tell they've been renovated recently. Room service, housekeeping and restaurant staff were equally good and we had no complain for the duration of our stay. only thing missing would be a nice view, being so central means you get to see passenger trains and commuter crowds from the window.

We had dinner at the hotel and while they pride themselves in their sushi menu, it's average at best! Moreover, service was terrible and we not only had to ask&wait for soy sauce to eat the sushi with but we also had to refill our wine glasses ourselves! Overall, I do expect better service&quality of food in such an expensive hotel.
