Was very pleasantly surprised as I was searching for a cheaper hotel. Very close to embassy and train station. Hotel staff was very friendly and room was clean. Cool hip feel but very no thrills and rather small room. I travel a ton so I'm very skeptical on hotels this cheap. Thanks trip advisor reviews. I think it works well... More

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast (you pay for) was really good. Our room was dated and in need of some renovating, the antique elevator small; the price you have to pay sometimes for quaint character. My sisters room as like on the fourth floor and jail cell sized. She had her own newly renovated bathroom,... More

The hotel is a few minutes walk from the train station. The room we had was stuffy and warm. We were there at the end of September. Our only windows were along the roof line so we could only see the sky. Since there was no air condition or fans, we had to keep the windows open until just before... More

Good location near old town within easy 10 minutes' walking distance of rail station but also with tram stop outside the door if you have heavy luggage. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet and breakfast was more than adequate. Staff were friendly and welcoming and we appreciated the free city travel offered by the hotels in Bern.

After a long flight we we really appreciated the early checking. The staff were friendly and helpful, the location central (great for train travellers) and breakfast was great. The only problem we had was that the room we were allocated on the 5th floor was so hot it was inhabitable during the day and sleeping was impossible. I,m not sure... More

I had a wonderful stay in this hotel. The staff were all great. The hotel is just walking distance to the train station and the Old Town. You can even reach the picturesque Aare River on foot. I also visited Albert Einstein's former apartment and I had a great time. Lovely canton!

This hotel is a reasonable walking distance from the bahnhof even with big luggage (maybe 2 minutes). We had so much luggage, they gave us a larger room since the hotel was quiet. The staff are very friendly and helpful, they helped us get to Emmenthal for a tour (recommended, btw). The hotel itself is nice & typical Swiss style.... More

We were in Switzerland in the last week of March 2016 and stayed at Hotel National Bern. We had the quaint little room (301) overlooking the main street and the tram stop.

The hotel is 5 minutes away from the bern bahnhof. The rooms have no air conditioner. The hotel is in a busy street so you hear traffic noise at night. Old style rooms with uncomfortable beds and pillows. The breakfast was very average as well.
