“Low Key Swiss Hospitality”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

The Gasthof zum Baren in Signau is very convenient to the rail station and half the price of hotels in Bern, 35 minutes away. The room was large and comfortable, although the furnishings were a bit dated. The breakfast was fine with a choice of tea or coffee, bread, rolls, jellies, yogurt, cheese, and salami. The Gasthof sits at the junction of the rail and bus line, if one would like to journey on to Eggiwil by bus. The hostess was very hospitable and met my halting German with better English.

Room Tip: There are only four rooms.

Gasthof zum Baren, an old Swiss style bed and breakfast tucked neatly away in the countryside just outside of Bern, is a treasure. The rooms, while a little less modern in style, were spotless. The owner is very sweet and accommodating--she surprised me by buying special gluten free rolls for me so I could have bread with my breakfast. The food served for breakfast as well as at the restaurant was delicious and fairly traditional Swiss fare. The town itself is very quiet and quaint, complete with church bells that ring the quarter hours and sing on Sunday. Compared to the cost of staying in town, Gasthof zum Baren is very affordable and has free parking to boot (also, there is a train station across the street and several bus stops as well if you are using public transportation). Overall, of all the places we stayed in Europe, I felt most at home here.
