Hotel La Pergola
Ranked #21 of 30 Hotels in Bern
Reviewed February 18, 2012

I stayed for a week (work) in a frozen January. The rooms are very basic but warm and internet is free and works well and I encountered no problems during my stay.

The little extras were welcome such as a helpful, friendly service from the staff and complementary fruit and wafers in reception. The breakfast was quite basic but fine.

The location is average, a 10 minute walk from the station and centre.

I recommend a walk up to Gurten park to the south. You can get the tram and a funicular railway or alternatively it is maybe an hours walk over there and up the hill (dodge the sledgers on the way up!).

Yes, is not as expensive as the center of Bern but rooms and hotel lack caracter, walk to the center is not too long but boring and the only rediming features are the loveley staff and breakfast.

Modern style hotel a bit too far away from the centre. Front desk staff very helpful, breakfast staff less so. Handy parking. A bit characterless for such a charming city.

Even though Hotel La Pergola is not in the old part of Bern city, it is only a 5-10 min tram ride away from the centre, or a 15-20 stroll. We enjoyed this boutique hotel as it was clean, tidy, fresh, comfortable, and a very nice breakfast spot in the mornings. To enter the hotel, look for the walkway just off the street. Good pizzas from the small corner pizza shop just up the road (heading towards the city centre), and also a good set priced meal from another nearby 5-minute-walk hotel - ask the La Pergola reception staff for the dining voucher (sorry, can't remember the name of the other hotel or the price, but we were pleased with our meal and our included-in-the-price glass of wine). When walking around Bern, enjoy all the fountains and their statues along the cobbled main street. Enjoy Bern !

This hotel is hard to find. It isn't even visible from Belpstrasse which its address says it's on. You have to watch for a little sign that points down a different street to the hotel.

The room descriptions of other reviewers have pointed out most of the good points of this hotel. The rooms are wonderfully clean and everything works well. The breakfast is nice. But, the sliding door system used in the room results in little ridges in the floor where the doors slide. If you step on one with bare feet it hurts. The street noise others mentioned was a problem for us too, even though we were there in the winter. The room is so small that with a double bed there was only about 8 inches between wall and bed on one side.

The staff are very friendly and efficient except that the front desk person is tasked with handling all the phone calls as well as guest reception. When we arrived, having traveled from San Francisco, we had to stand and wait while the receptionist took not one, but two phone calls. She quoted rates and described rooms ad infinitum while all we wanted was a bed to crash in. That happened a couple more times during our stay when I just wanted to ask a question. Those times I gave up and found another way to get answers.

We were allowed to check in when we arrived at 11:00 am, which was great. Our room had just one pillow and one towel though. They must waste a lot of maid time running pillows and towels around.

The real surprise is the lack of good, competitively-priced accomodations in Bern. We have traveled there on business five times in the past year and have tried three different hotels because the only one we really like is usually booked up well in advance. We have found most cities this size have a better selection.

Very nice small hotel, nicely decorated comfortable room, top service, good location, few minutes walking to old town city center and to railway station. Small drawback, no minibar in
the room.
