Convenient hotel in the Old Town of Bern: all the main attractions are at walking distance. The staff at the reception desk were nice and helpful. The rooms were clearly recently refurbished, very clean and modern. Decoration was minimalistic, but I didn't mind. The bathroom was clean and comfortable. I especially loved the excellent shower cabin.

Breakfast was fine, but for the price we payed, I have to say I expected a bit more choice. It did bother me though that the scrambled eggs were cold. That shouldn't happen!

Overall a bit too expensive for a basic stay.

Dear guest, thank you for your review and your stay. We are happy to hear that you were satisfied with the new renovated room and our helpful team at the reception. The choice of products on the Bernese breakfast buffet is limited but the products are fresh and local. We apologize for the cold scrambled egg, this is not our standard.
Kind regards Carla Tichelli & Bären-Team

This hotel used to be called Best Western, but it still has "The Best Western" standards. Our triple room is enough to accomodate us. Our rooms has electric kettle, coffee capsules , coffee maker, and ITV channels... thank you Lord. We were welcome by Vera at the reception. She is extremely accomodating, so is Mariana and everybody. Location of the hotel is 'amazing'. Breakfast is also adequate and their hazelnut bread is the best. I would return again, hopefully soon.

If you stay in this hotel, you will find yourself right smack in the middle of Bern, where all the action is. If you are in the city to shop, you will not be disappointed. Right beside the hotel are a couple of department stores. Behind it are the famous arcades with lots and lots of shopping options. Restaurants also abound in the area so finding a place to eat will not be a problem either.

The hotel serves a decent breakfast buffet. The rooms are huge for European standards and quite comfortable. The bathrooms are very nice as well. Staff was very helpful and the hotel and rooms overall were very clean.

The only difficulty I had was with the parking. The hotel does not offer any parking so we had to go park at the Casino parking which was about 3 blocks away. But if you come by train, the station is only a couple of blocks away -probably a 5 minute walk.

Date of stay: November 2017

Large room that had all additions we appreciate (except fridge for those who like cream in their coffee). Quiet and fabulous location. WIFI was reliable. Staff was friendly. We didn’t step foot in the restaurant so can’t speak to that. Fair priced. It even has a gym, and boast 6 different types of pillows available for sleeping like a baby.

Room tip: I bet they are all good.
