“Conveniently located and quite comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is a beautiful hotel with comfortable, well-appointed rooms, great service, and a fantastic location for travelers. My husband and I prefer to use public transport when in Europe, and this hotel is very near the train station in Bern. We were greeted with smiles and fantastic fresh strawberry juice. The staff were extremely helpful in explaining hotel amenities and surrounding attractions. Our room was beautiful, with up-to-date technology and a fantastic bathroom (large tub and separate shower with rainfall head)! We ate breakfast in Jack's Brasserie downstairs, and it was a pretty standard continental breakfast - not stellar, but very good. The location is great for walking around the center of the city and shopping. All in all, we quite enjoyed our stay here and would stay again.

Room Tip: Our sixth floor room had a lovely view of the parliament building

Entirely renovated a few years ago. Beautifully decorated. Great 5 star hotel. World class. Very comfortable room (and quiet!) on the sixth floor. Lot of tech gadgets. Well organized bathroom. Lovely terrace bar with oriental snacks. Great spa. Special thanks to the manager of the spa. Brilliant massage.

The location was ideal set on the edge of the Old Town. Really convenient if travelling by train. The Staff were very attentive, helpful and friendly. The Schweizerhof breakfast in Jacks Bar is an amazing experience. The Delux Room was very spacious and comfortable with good amenities and technology. The provision of complimentary beer and soft drinks was a nice touch as well as free movies. Bar staff were also helpful in choosing the good quality local wines.

We were received at the Bern station by Kay, the head concierge and walked to the hotel directly opposite. What a downtown location!
Our suite was quiet and tech superior. Loved it.
Charlotte, the veteran manager, was interactive and most helpful at breakfast. But we had to pay for fruits when all other breakfasts include it in their spreads.
The lobby coffee area and restaurants do brisk business. Popular with locals.

Seems to be the most popular hotel in town.
The sheikhs of Qatar who own it must be mighty proud.

This is easily the most pleasant and relaxing hotel I have ever stayed at - and I spend about 150 nights a year in hotels.

The facilities are first-class, everyone on staff is very well trained and very guest-focused, and the food in the restaurant is superb.

Normally, this hotel is relatively expensive (but, excellent value for money), however, sometimes the hotel makes 'special offers' available on their own website that offer very attractive rates. So do check the prices on the hotel's own website before making a booking, you might find a pleasant surprise.

Stayed here for one night. Took the car from Geneva to Bern. Gorgeous drive on motorways. Car was taken by efficient concierge and taken to garage. Reception was friendly, relaxed and organized. Reception area busy with meetings at cafe tables (probably political meetings) beautiful flower arrangements everywhere but somehow it felt controlled and smooth - and relaxed !!! I chose to go to the room alone as I hate being led anywhere. I like to explore a little. Room was a delight ! Room 307 ! I want to stay in this room again. Comfortable big bed with lots of pillows. Crisply ironed Egyptian Cotten sheets ! Luxury ! Big shower and enormous bath with a tv in wall of bath. A fruit bowl with fresh fruit plus a plate aubergine purée and black olive tapenade waited lazily for me to dig into. Alas - I waited until my husband arrived and we devided this yummy gift from the kitchens. In the evening we ate at the Hotel restaurant (Jacques I thinking think its called) and ate from the daily gourmet menu. We were delighted ! We ended the evening by sending compliments to the entree, Main and dessert chefs ! Slept. Incredibly well. Woke and went to breakfast to so friendly staff. Thank you to all of you !

Everything you expect from a 5 star including a professional management team who understand how to respond to any service requests. Bern is an expensive city to visit and this hotel is not cheap but does represent value. If staying on a Saturday evening we'd suggest requesting a room that does not overlook the railway station and late night rowdy crowds. Somethings even a good hotel can't control!
