I stayed at Novotel Bern Expo between July 10th and July 12th and had issues with their service. One thing that really concerned me was that I felt that I was led on by their breakfast fee. I thought that my hotel stay covered breakfast; however, this wasn't the case. Many of my other European hotels that I stayed at...

Stopped one night on our tour of Europe. Get room and breakfast on a special offer and its very good value. A fairly new hotel, staff very attentive and dealt with requests well. We were located on floor 6 and views were great over the neighbouring stables and distant mountains. Car park felt secure but was charged extra. Breakfast excellent,...

No frills. It's yet another Novotel with the same room plan, same colour scheme, but also same hospitality and riliability. It is not in the city centre, but the tram stops literally in front of it and, even better, it's actually a 20-minute walk to the centre. Good value for money.

The Novotel is exelect when you're in Bern for a) business or b) expo. In case you're there fir sightseeing or romance you should avoid it. The hotel is a typical 3 - 4 star place, a bit cold and without any charme - but effective. The rooms are ok and clean, the bathroom really nice. It's just a "no...

The hotel is nice and clean and very quiet. It’s probably used more for business travelers; however, we really enjoyed it. Our room was large by European standards, clean, had a mini-fridge, safe, and tv with a few channels in English. The hotel is located outside of the heart of Bern by the Expo Center. However, it is a short...

Excellent hotel. We loved our 1 day stay here. The room and amenities were quite nice. all very modern. It is a little bit out of the way though. About 10 minutes from the city center. The tram stop is right out front though so getting into the city center is no problem. BEWARE of the Taxis it cost 20...

My husband and I just stayed a couple of nights at the Novotel and we chose the hotel because of its proximity to the Bea exhibition grounds. We didn't expect too much, but with it being rated as a 4-star-hotel we were somewhat disappointed. The location was ok but the price definitely too high (Swiss francs 240 for a small...

Our family (me, wife, 2 children 5 and 3, and granny) stayed here in two rooms for two nights on 2 very very cold days in January, We came by car and the hotel has its own underground car park (very handy as it meant the car could thaw out a bit, and the washer-water could melt!) for 12CHF for...

Booked this hotel through an offer on expedia. Slightly out of the city center but easily reached on the tram which stops directly in front of the hotel in 10min. The tickets on the tram are quite expensive though and travelers should try to buy batch tickets which are slightly discounted in a tourist office opposite the central train station...
