Convenient location, very clean and affordable considering the location just a hundred yards or so from the bahnhof and a short walk from old town as well. Parking is a huge issue in Bern though, so take garage pricing into consideration if you book this hotel.

I stayed at the Metropole from May 15th to the 18th. The key card was made of soft plastic and there was a crack above the hole where it attached to the key ring. Because of the crack, the card was constantly falling off the ring, so it was only a matter of time before it got lost. When I...

Pro The rooms were cosy and big with large french window, that provide sufficient lights into the room. I love the room as it has the homely feel to it due to the windows. Shower and toilet was separated (there was 3 of us). Warm room with heater. Basic 2-in-1 soap provided. Good location. Con Shower without door. Noisy at...

I don't get all the negative comments. Hotel location is right in the city centre, the rooms are big and clean, beds are comfortable. What more? Ok, there is no reception on weekends or in the night, but you can always go to the Kreuz. Bathrooms are a little outdated, but big and clean. Would recommend

A little soulless but a good location (there again anywhere in bern old town is a good location as it's a very small area). Free tea and coffee in the 1st floor lounge is a nice touch but the 'one soap for everything' in the bathroom felt a little cheap. And a couple of extra pillows would have been welcomed...

The hotel is in the middle of Bern, excellent location. The room seems very outdated. You need to run water quite long until you get hot water to come out. The water in the shower does not go down the drain quickly, so you are practically standing in the water to your ankles while showering. But the location is great...

There is no getting around that this is a basic hotel with little fancy about it. That said, it is perfectly acceptable in a utilitarian way. The rooms are clean, the bed comfortable, the bath adequate though the shower was a bit small. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is in the hotel across the street and decent...

I stayed here for five days while attending a conference, and liked it a lot. The breakfast (across the street at the sister hotel) was quite good, with eggs, bacon, fruit, fresh bread, and everything else you would expect. The hotel is only about two blocks from the train station, and only a 10 minute walk to the University. It...

Very nice hotel, beautiful room, friendly staffs and good breakfast. Its location had been my first priority before my arrival and I didn't expect much about the other things. Then I found out every thing is really good in the hotel. In a word perfect 👍🏻

Booking for the City Hotel Metropol but automatically transferred to an opposite hotel Kreuz with no explanation. Though room is clean and renovation is new. No earlier check-in arrangement even we arrived early at 9 am in the morning, and we must wait until 2pm for check-in. For lugguage storage, no marking of bag pieces and numbers which may cause...
