I liked this hotel. First of all, it is located in the center of Bern, close to numerous restaurants and shopping, and a short walk from the train station. The rooms were comfortable and clean, though a bit spartan on the furniture. The bathroom was clean and efficient, with a nice tiled shower stall and plenty of hot water. There...

I was looking for a hotel in Bern for a night and found this nearby railway station. They were also asking for a reasonable price so I was ok with it. The room was ok at the asked price. The lobby of the hotel is dark as you get down from lift (as they have these movement detectors) i.e. only...

This is a very good value hotel. The price is very modest especially for Switzerland. It is located right in the centre of the old town,a short walk even with luggage from the main Railway Station. Rooms are clean and the staff are very attentive.To top it off it includes full breakfast...not just a croisant or a roll, but toast...

I arrived at the hotel in the evening and you need to go to the hotel in front in order to do the check in because there are no people at the hotel in the evening. I could also use the internet in the other hotel. The room is quite small but not bad especially considering the price I paid....

I stayed in the Hotel Metropole for one night on Saturday, 8th September 2013. I chose the hotel for a number of reasons - one of which being that I could redeem some Avios points at this hotel, the others being it's location. I read the Trip Advisor views first, of course, before booking and was satisfied that I'd made...

I stayed in Hotel Metropole a couple of nights on a business trip and it was ok, I would recommend it. The biggest plus is the location that is hard to beat – all sights, historic buildings, the river, a million shops and restaurants and the train station are all only 5 minutes away. Breakfast was really good and in...

The Metropole is centrally located VERY simple hotel in Bern. Rooms and all of the facilities are very modest, simple and old. Breakfast is there but not offer much, though it's good to have something in the morning. The hotel has a bigger sibling across the road and some services (like wifi) is offered across the street. Not having a...

The Metropole is splendidly located in the center of town. Its accommodations are basic, but more than adequate for a short stay. Compared to alteratives such as the Best Western et al, this is a much better deal. Rooms are clean, simple, and comfortable. Many of them are small, but none are as tiny as the shoe-box offerings at the...
