It was about a 5-7 min. walk from the train. Easy walk to the rest of Bern. Check in/ out was smooth from very friendly staff members. We were on the 4th floor farthest from the elevator and it was a nice large quiet room. Breakfast was good and you can get a special coffee if you request it.

I stayed with a couple of colleagues in this hotel during a 3 day business trip. I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and the town Bern. The hotel provided a nice breakfast and a spacious room. A positive surprise was a free ticker for the public transportation during the stay. The staff was very friendly and gave good advice...

We were in Bern to meet friends who live there. The Best Western Hotel Bristol was well located, being in the center of the city just off the Bundesplatz, close to the historic sights, shopping and restaurants. The staff was very helpful. The room, while a little dated, was spacious and well furnished. The breakfast buffet was nice, and cards...

This charming hotel, which sits in the middle of the city, is becoming my home away from home. The staff is nice and very helpful, rooms are clean and well set up, breakfast is good, prices are correct. And, also important to me, everything is within walking distance.

We stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights. It is conveniently located close to the station, and the staffs and friendly and helpful. If you choose the right exit from the station, it is almost considered sheltered from station to hotel. It is on a relatively quiet side of town, seemed to have a few office blocks opposite. The...

This BW hotel is located in the very center of Bern. Just a few minutes walk from the main train station. The hotel itself is to Swiss standards below average. Everything is clean and functioning but it all seems very outdated. The receptionist was very friendly at both check-in and out. The breakfast room was fairly small and the buffet...

After traveling all through Switzerland & having great experiences in every hotel we ended in Zurich. I understand that things are more expensive there, but there shouldn't have been such a discrepancy in cost & attitude. I booked this hotel because of its excellent location near the train station. The hotel felt well-used & dated although the bathroom seemed to...

Convenient, courteous and well run. Have stayed many times at this hotel. The location is unbeatable, a few minutes from the train station and main bus/tram stops, and in the middle of shopping district.

I truly enjoyed my time at this hotel. We arrived at the hotel a bit earlier than planned around noon. They had the room ready let us checkin. The location is amazing. You have everything within walking distance. You can also use the fitness centre located in another hotel next door, which was nice and clean. What I loved the...

Our room was huge, the staff was always nice, helpful, and considerate, but the location is what really makes me rate this hotel excellent. Everything we really wanted to see was close - walking distance. Transportation to other areas was nearby. Shopping was plentiful. People were nice and without exception spoke at least enough English to be friendly and helpful.
