    The location is outstanding, between the Bundeshaus and the bahnhoff. The morning breakfast is quite good.

    It was expensive, but everything in Bern is expensive, even the souvenirs!

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Very close to shopping and the main train station. Very large rooms and they provided an extra bed for my 5 year old at no additional charge. Very helpful front desk.

    Very basic breakfast.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The location was excellent. The room was quite large. Free wifi.

    The gym/fitness centre is almost unusable. It had very little equipment. The room was small and hot.

  • Older travelers

    The location close to the Banhof was the desired feature & the shopping facilities in the area were also wide & varied. The hotel staff were very attentive & helpful with our quick integration with city facilities & attractions.

  • Single
    9.6

    Location was excellent, staff were friendly and helpful and surprisingly for such a hotel internet was free which is welcome when usually for such hotels it is an expensive extra. Hotel very comfortable and I shall return.

    Only minor complaint was that there was work being carried out on fifth floor, (March 2012) and work started early and staff did seem to talk in the corridor early in the morning.

  • Couple

    Well located - rooms are clean

    Small tv - noisy (street + other rooms/showers)

  • Single

    Nothing to say what is good, but more to say what is not so good.

    This hotel tries to attract customers by misinformation. I was shocked: They offered car park for 40.- CHF. When I arrived and asked for the car park: There is public parking 10min away. I confronted them with there advertising, but I did not got any clear answer and no excuse. Sorry --- This is sheating people to get them as customers. So I would never ever go to this hotel again. There are better hotels around where you should go. Never ever to there again.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The staff were very helpful and the location was excellent.

    It was rated as a 4 star hotel. Although pleasant it was not 4 star quality more 3 or 2 star

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Staff were efficient and friendly.

    Road side rooms were a little noisy at the weekend; better double glazing required.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Good location, air conditioning, thematic attention to local artist Paul Klee in prints, photos displayed in room and public areas.

    No real sense of style, modeled for tour groups and no frills business travel. Very motel- like, disappointing bathroom facilities and provisions for a 4-star hotel. No tub, tiny shower, liquid soap in squeeze bottles. Switzerland is expensive, but we stayed at similarly priced hotels in other cities which provided more amenities and style.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Convenient position, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, spacious, ample breakfast My son and I would return

    Room numbers should be taken on entering the dining room

  • Single
    6.6

    Convenient location for central Bern.

    Room was slightly cooler than I should have liked. The windows lack double glazing/sound proofing and the street outside can be noisy at night (even from the 5th floor).

  • Single

    Good location near Parliment buildings and main train station.friendly staff.Comfortable room.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Location was excellent, and staff were very helpful and friendly

    Room was basic, but clean. Bathroom very small and no bath.
