Reviewed February 17, 2013

We travel through Europe quite frequently with our three young children. It is often difficult to find hotels that accommodate our family needs without purchasing two rooms and separating our family. Our family room was perfect-large enough for five to be comfortable. The bathroom was very large and very clean. The breakfast was wonderful--three picky children were able to find something they all liked. The restaurant was closed when we arrived, however the front desk was able to point us in the easy direction of a great restaurant.

We stayed in a family room at Alpenblick for two nights in December 2012. The rooms were spacious and clean. I liked that we could close the room divider between the two rooms at night. The bathroom was clean and neat. It was just before Christmas and the restaurant was closed, therefore breakfast was basic with no option other than boiled eggs, but there was enough cereals, bread and cold meats. Fresh fruit was always available. The hotel is also just a short walk away from the tram station and the neighbourhood was quiet. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Brigitte at the front desk is very friendly and is an asset to the hotel.

We visited a student in Bern and our most important criteria were to stay as close as possible to her flat. But underground parking and price were also taken into consideration. All emails from the hotel landed in my spam folder, but that might be my setting. Otherwise we loved the breakfast with fresh fruits, a good coffee machine for self-service (my son tried Ovomaltine for the first time and preferred his known Cocoa), the real tree trunks as bedside tables, the very friendly staff. With my young son we made use of the „coffee corner“ room on our floor if we wanted to play a board game while daddy wanted to read. The free WLAN offer is unfortunately only 1MB (we mostly wanted to watch movies on our iPad), for the 5MB offer you had to pay. But that was really the only unexpected fact. As we were 2 adults plus a toddler I would have liked a third pillow on the bed.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your comment and you rating on TripAdvisor. We are glad to hear that you could enjoy your stay with your family and had a good time. Referring the third pillow, please just ask the next time, we offer you as many pillows you need! Ovomaltine is a traditional Swiss beverage and not comparable with cacao beverages, in Switzerland normally everybody has a favorite taste, either Ovomalitne or a cacao sort, it depends on habit and family tradition. :)
Thank you once again for your nice words and we would be pleased to welcome you again in the future, when you stay in Bern for another visit!
Kind regards,

Stayed here for one week and it was very comfortable. I had a room which had just (dec 2012) fully been renovated and it was very well styled, modern, clean but still cosy. Also the small bathroom was designed well, still enough room to move around. And importantly, nice beds. I can really also recommend the restaurant, great food and service, for a good price. Tip: try the 'hot stone' steak, it is a treat!

Location is a little bit outof the centre, but tram 9 is only 5min walk and goes very frequently (every 6 min for a large part of the day). Advantage is that it is a quiet area.

I stayed one night at the Hotel Alpenblick. The down-side is that it is a bit away from the centre but if you must go there, it's no big deal to take the tram which leaves not far from the hotel. The rooms are modern and the bed is excellent. For some reason I came to think that the whole setting (including the neighbourhood of the hotel) did not remind of Swiss - I actuallly more had a feeling of being in Holland. Maybe it's just me :o)
The breakfast is also very excellent with eggs you can boil yourself and with great fresh bread - it's far over the usual "continental breakfast" thing you might find elsewhere. You get your breakfast in the restaurant which also looks more like something in Holland or Scandinavia than in Swiss. You don't have the "alps-feeling" - but it's really cool. Staff is friendly and helpful - the parking costs CHF 14 for a place in the basement - works out fine. I can only recommend it. The next time I would absolutely try the restaurant - unfortunately I went to the restaurant Tramway nearby which can NOT be recommended (read my review of that if you consider it). My advice: Stay in the Alpenblick and eat there as well. Great hotel!

When we accomplish that goal we have done our job. I am so honored that you choose Alpenblick while you were in Bern.

Funny, that for you the neighbourhood seemed like Holland, I never thought about that but indeed there are some similarities :)

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!
