“Very good for a short city break”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

  Good small unpretencious  hotel with very helpful and welcoming reception staff. Small clean room. Very quiet residential neighbourhood, absolute silence at night -the only sound was that of a bird adjusting itself on a treebranch. 
    Not expensive for Switzerland. 
     Five minute walk to the tram station with five minute ride to the old city center. Near the tram stop a lot of small lovely cafes. 
   City center is at walkable distance -some 20 minutes. 
    Small underground parking for a fee, but it seems to be possible to park nearby for free. 
     No aircon, a fan was offered at hot weather. 
     Lovely isolated garden to enjoy a drink after a day of sightseeing. 
     Comfortable bedding. 
     Breakfast good. WiFi free everywhere.

This is def a great place to stay if visiting Bern. The staff were supremely helpful and friendly, the beer garden a nice place to relax, location good (very easy to get into the city centre by tram), neat surrounding area...and the breakfast...was fab! Lots of little details which made the stay that something extra, loved the egg cooker! Would def recommend and return. Thank you.

The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood two steps away from the panoramic rose park from where the city center is a walk away. The room was clean and comfortable. What we liked best was the breakfast lounge (very nice eco-chic design). Definitely recommended!

As a city, Bern was a bit of a disappointment. The Alpenblick, however, made up for it! The restaurant is fantastic. Best food we had in Switzerland. The family room was comfortable and highly functional and just a beautiful place to be. Go to the Botanic Gardens, not far from the hotel, and don't worry about not being in the historic centre. It is far better to be at the Alpenblick and walk or tram into the centre when you want. The Alpenblick is quiet and charming in an efficient Swiss way.

This hotel is located on the other side of the Aare river from the old town of Bern, quite close to the panoramic views of the Rose garden. It is walkable to the historic sites but quiet enough that you feel sheltered from any hustle/bustle. The outside of the two connected buildings comprising the hotel is unassuming but the inside has been nicely decorated. Rooms are sparse but modern with a safe, small but functional bathroom, and functioning free WiFi. Best of all was the service we receivede from all the staff (esp. Corine) right from checkin to a delay we had checking out - when our rental car wouldn't start and we had to wait for service. The staff was so hospitable, allowing is to use their phone, bringing us a complimentary drink as we sat on the patio, etc. Bern is not a cheap city, but this unassuming hotel just outside the main touristy center is amazing values here we received service characteristic of a top-notch property.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. About a five minute walk from the tram or bus stop. Makes for a quiet and relaxing spot after the bustle of the city. Staff were really friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Rooms were modern, clean and very comfortable, breakfast was good and plentiful. Hot drinks available in the lounge. Really enjoyed our stay here.

An excellent hotel with friendly staff who are willing to offer advice and help as needed. We stayed in a family room which was beautifully fitted out with lots of storage space and a lovely bathroom. Breakfast was enjoyable and set us up nicely for the day. The hotel is a short distance from the old town, but we found that this gave the opportunity to explore both the rose garden and botanical garden on the way over to the old town. Overall, this is a pleasant place to stay with excellent services.
