“Cozy hotel with very good breakfast”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

This hotel was exactly what I expected after reading the reviews. We stayed two nights on our way to Zermatt. The restaurant is very cute and the breakfast was wonderful and included with the room. The restaurant was closed for dinner while we were there. The rooms were find, a little larger than what we had in Zurich but the shower is tiny. The hotel is outside of town but there are frequent trams into town. It is a little further from the tram than I had expected but not bad. It is very easy to walk into town from the hotel but walking back would be mostly uphill and probably not recommended. The price was good and overall, this is a good choice.

We spent 3 nights here on our recent trip to Bern. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the small side (by American standards), but clean and full of light. Location was just outside of town - tram ride took 5 minutes and walking only took 15. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious!

One night stay in a small single room with shower, very clean with, I counted, 5 lamps, of which 2 reading lamps. Friendly staff at the reception. I Had a hot tea swinged into my room upon arrival. Brunch -like -breakfast Quality-price are commensurate.
Easy ride with the tram no 9 from and to the city center. There is one down side in the occupied room; a stain on the comforter.

Room Tip: On the first floor the hotel offered a nice view on the military building which is a landmark, and a...

Spent 1 night here in November 2012.

Hotel is outside the old town so it's about 20-25 minutes walk or 10 minutes by public transportation.
By car, easy access from Motorway and parking in the street is possible.

Our room was refurbished which was nice but it was small. The bathroom was small too and not new at all. This should have been refurbished as well (old sink, old shower cabin and old toilet).
The bed wasn't very comfortable and small for us two. No A/C, no fridge but free wi-fi and a flat TV.

Breakfast buffet was nice in the restaurant.

We've paid CHF 160.- for the night and breakfast
Staff at the hotel was nice but shy.

Maybe we'll go back, maybe not.

Referring the old bath rooms, it is not possible to refurbish all rooms together, we are going to do this step by step and I am happy to tell you that there are a lot of plans!
Thank you for your understanding and we are looking forward to welcoming you again at Hotel Alpenblick.

Great hotel, lovely staff, great breakfast.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, but especially those who travel for work and are on holidays... such a change from your boring average hotel room.
We were in a newly renovated room that was bright, warm & very funky.

The location was perfect, a short trip into town on the tram that takes you right to the train station via a couple of the attractions.

We were unsure where to stay in Bern and picked the Alpenblick based on the great reviews it was getting. We weren't disappointed at all. Initially after arriving at the main train station and deciding to walk to the hotel felt like it was quite a distance from the town centre but in actual fact it was just a 10 - 20 minute walk away or a quick tram ride. We enjoyed the fact that it was locate in a quiet neighbourhood and the walk into town each day was lovely no matter what direction you picked. The rooms were clean, a good size and very comfortable. The bathroom was a tad dated but didn't bother us at all. The restaurant downstairs was convenient too and the food was lovely and not too pricy. The service was wonderful and always with a smile. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I would stay there again.

We walked into a busy bar expecting a hotel and were politely shown into the hotel. A contrast but very pleasant. The hotel is in a residential area of the city but only a short walk into town.
Very helpful staff and great breakfast.
HTere was an outside restaurant but at this time of year its understandably closed.
