    Location near historical center.

    Small size of the room considering the price.

  • Single
    8.8

    Friendly. The staff spoke many languages and could offer advice and help about almost everything.

  • Single
    9.6

    Clean, functional, nice breakfast and very well located.

    It's expensive for what you get, but that's Bern!

  • Single
    5.8

    Very convenient location, free Internet, welcome drink.

    The room was quite small, even for European standards, single bed of 90cm width. Very limited in terms of toiletteries (only handsoap and shower gel), very basic coffee/tea making facilities. Breakfast rather basic.

    Great location. Close to train station but also in the heart of downtown. Breakfast had a great variety. Was given a complementary drink ticket on arrival. Air conditioning was a great plus since street was a bit noisy to have the windows open - but quiet when closed - good soundproofing. We got a great deal on Booked.net

  • Single

    I have particularly appreciated the free access to Internet through an efficient WiFi system available everywhere in the hotel. The staff was attentive and responded always kindly to several demands.The location is fantastic, in one of the most lively (relatively) narrow streets of the old town, with everything within a short strall. The accessibility from the station can hardly be better.

    I have less appreciated the small size of the room and the hot temperature that lasted during the night in spite of my efforts to use the aircon in a way that would not kill me with an ice-cold draught.

    Location was perfect for exploring the old city. Surprisingly it is just a block from the Parliament Square. It is also close to many restaurants with outdoor seating.

  • Single

    The room was quite expensive for only average comfort and breakfast

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Staff very helpful and good location of the hotel. Nice room with bath and breakfast was very good.

    With air conditioning and the windows closed, the room was very quiet. However we do not like air conditioning, and with the windows open, there was obviously more noise. I would recommend the hotel, but warn others that they must use the air conditioning.

  • Single
    9.2

    Great location, right in the heart of town, sound-proof windows are nice too, comfy bed

    Breakfast selection a bit meager for a 4-star Swiss hotel

  • Couple
    9.4

    Clean, comfortable, well-run hotel. Excellent location in middle of Berne and close to railway station but quiet. Hotel bar has more character than most, with its cute 19th-century anthropomorphic murals of bears engaging in bourgeois pursuits of the day. Decent breakfast. It's expensive, but everywhere in Switzerland is.

    Air con could do with a service in our room.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Location to train station and old town very good.

    Not at the level I would expect of a Swiss hotel. Tired,few amenities,inattentive/indifferent staff. At best a 2 star hotel.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    the location. In a distance of 50 m. you have all bus and trams.

    the small spaces.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Less expensive that other hotels in the area, but still quite expensive by usa standards

  • Single
    5.4

    Great location close to central station.

    No airconditioning in the rooms ! Impossible to sleep in the summer, noisy streets outside make opening a window a poor choice. Spartan rooms and low-budget breakfast choice make this hotel a dud.
