In general I liked the hotel and the attention upon arrival. Entering the breakfast room, a 'good morning' seems not very common. No appropriate decoration - the ambiance reminds you of a hospital. Breakfast itself was complete and good. The lift was very slow to get up to the 6th floor. Sometimes I preferred to take the stairs down. The...

I was in Bern for business and booked this hotel close to the station. The room was comfortable. The front desk employees were very friendly and helpful. The rooms could use a paint job (ceiling paint was falling off) and the shower curtain was too small, so water went everywhere. The breakfast was fair, a bit too expensive for the...

While everything is more expensive in Switzerland I think this hotel is overpriced. First the practical matters. Request a room on the non-street side. The street side rooms are extremely noisy about 18 hours a day especially given the fact that if it is warm out you have to keep the windows open since there is no air conditioning in...

The hotel Is centrally located right across from the main train station in Bern. When you enter the hotel it is obvious that parts of it have been updated. The room we stayed in had not. The room was a good size but only had one chair. While we had a small balcony, it was in dire need of paint...

Hotel has the perfect location for visitors who plan to see around Bern city. It is very close to train station. There are several bus stops nearby. So it is a very convenient hotel. The room and its amenity are basic. But it has everything needed. I would recommend this hotel to stay in Bern.

Budget Hotel, if ever you can consider something Budget in Switzerland. Room very small, bathroom the same. Everthing Looks like turned down, Needs urgent renovation. Elevator did not work when we arrived, so had to bring up our baggage into the 4th floor by the stairways. We did not have breakfast, as we had an early Arrival. For 1 night...

Basic hotel close to the train station with comfortable and quite large rooms. The rooms at the backside are clear and silent. The last time I was there, because of workings, tehy did not offer breakfast but only croissants and coffee/tee at the (small) lobby.

It looks like they are starting to refurbish which will be a good thing. Greeted outside by the Reception staff having a cigarette - classy. The water feature in the lobby is empty/defunct. The electric sockets in the room are by the bed (see photo). When I say by the bed, I mean your pillow is resting against them, at...
