If you must stay here, beware. Toilets in a step up little room, shower in the other step up little room, the sink is on the other side of the room. Zero a/c or heat. Soap is from the pump (think of McDonalds restrooms) for both hands and hair. You do pay 99 francs for a bed, a small pillow,...

We were only here for one night. It was basic, but clean and everything we needed. They even had free wifi... you just have to go into the lobby. It's a bit far out from the centre of Bern, but incredibly easy to travel, with the tram stop directly outside the hotel. It's a bit confusing trying to figure out...

If you're looking for a bed and a shower in Bern that won't break the bank, the Etap Hotel Bern Expo might qualify. The rooms are small and very basic - toilet & shower that barely fit a tall guy in a plastic "wet cell", a double bed, a small bunk bed across the head end of the double bed,...

This is cheap and cheerful accomodation. Bern is the capital of Switzerland and is expensive ( as is Switzerland). This is the cheapest place you will find. It is standard ETAP. If you have not been to an ETAP place before , furnishing is very basic and i would not recommend if taking a partner. The shower and toilet are...

In the same building there are Novotel, Ibis and Etap Hotel (10, 11 and 12 flloor). The breakfast is normal: bread, cereals, milk, coffee, but the space is...
