The hotel is right opposite Tram #9 stop, about 10 mins Bern central station. Staff are friendly and speak good English (as is usual in Swiss hotels). I didn’t have a car but I liked the idea of free parking. The room was modern and clean. I stayed on the 2nd floor in a single bed room. I liked the...

Polite staff. The hotel needs serious refurbishment. The room was marginal for 3 beds, duvet covers are short for a 1.80m person, the bath is one of the strangest i've met in my trips with very dificult access (yes, true...). There was a step, then you had to go in with one foot etc. I doubt that an elderly person...

I was surprised when entering to my room which has a big window. From my room I can have a panaroma view of Bern. Their breakfast is very good with wide range of choices. I love sitting by window and look to the city view. There is a nice indoor swimming pool so you can swim all year around. I...

My son and I recently stayed at this hotel and shared a room. However the toilet and bathroom areas were appalling. The toilet was so small that there was absolutely no room to 'swing a cat' so to speak. It would be absolutely impossible for a large person to use. The bathroom had no door - so there was no...

I was not expecting such a nice view of the city of Bern when I entered the clean, spacious (for Swiss standards!) room. The room was modern with a very comfortable bed. The hotel is on the outskirts of Bern but easy to reach by public transport in 10-15min.

Arrived on a sunday and parked the car in the secure and free carpark and checked in. Reception staff were lovely and helped my wife print and scan some documents. Bar staff were also lovely and really nice to our dog. Would be a 5* except for the following 'pet peeves': the double room was actually 2 single beds- this...

We stayed for one night and the staff was extraordinary. Very attentive, nice, polite and helpful. The room was clean and quiet. The hotel has nice facilities, like swimming pool and spa. And the option to get a free tram pass was certainly helpful, as the hotel is located within about 2km from the city centre. We did not like...

We spent nights 17 and 18 of a 19 day Switzerland tour. This hotel certainly ranked near the bottom. First- - the good. The staff is first rate. The location is 100 feet from a tram line that will take you to the City Center and Old Town in about 5 minutes (if you are into trams) plus a complimentary...

The hotel is located 10 minutes from Bern old city. When you check in you get a ticket free for the public transportation. My bed was little small. There is a small gym and small pool. There is parking in front of the hotel. It was crowded in the dining room at breakfast (a group arrived and there was a...

A typical modern European hotel designed for mid cost stays. Acceptable room facility although Wifi was weak and every device needed its own code. Breakfast was substandard. Bed was comfortable. View from my room looked out over Bern including the downtown area - very nice.
