We stayed here three days. Across from train station; quite handy. Bern is a neat city and you are in the heart of it here. When we go back to Bern, we will book here. A little costly but if your location is important, you are 'right there.'

Me and my friends were improvising a trip to Bern, we booked for a night just 1 week in advance, so the price wasn't really worth it. The location was great, just 3 minutes walk away from the train station, it was not hard to find, shopping malls and attractions are in short walking distance. The room was big (even...

Right opposite the central station so very convenient for anywhere in Bern old town. My room backed onto a coutyard rather than the main street. As a result the room was quite quiet, apart from poorly-insultated doors. Ear plug time again to make sure I got some sleep. The room was quite okay - furnished from the last decade or...

Great place for an overnight in Bern. Close to train station and close to the start of the walking tour of Bern. Our room was on the 5th floor and on street side but noise was not an issue. Neat, clean and ideally located. Pleasant and helpful staff. All we wanted was a convenient place to stay for one night...

This was the perfect hotel for our stay. We arrived and left from the train station. The hotel is directly across the street from the station. The staff was friendly and our room was clean and well equipped. We were able to use our short time in Bern site seeing. We could walk everywhere. We got good recommendations for dinner...

Located directly opposite to the Bern station. Pros: Location Cons: Rooms not reflecting the high price (narrow beds, small TV, simple bathroom without tub) No free Internet Expensive and simple breakfast Not recommended for the price asked. Will stay somewhere else next time.

I stayed here at the Am Bahnhof, opposite the main train station, for three nights. In terms of location and price, I could not have asked for a better hotel. In terms of helpfulness of staff, each of the five different staff I encountered over the three days were extremely helpful; pointing me in the direction of the nearesr cafe,...

We stayed for 2 nights in October - booked this hotel because of it's proximity to the station and town centre. Our room was on the 4th floor front,overlooking the tram station. It was not as noisy as we thought it would be and both slept well. The room was very spacious and clean with a nice big bathroom. Breakfast...

We found this hotel by accident and was very pleased. It is across the street from the train station and within walking distance to the city sights. The service was good . It is not a fancy place but is clean and adequate for a good nights sleep. A full breakfast is included. I would stay here again.
