This was the second time I stayed here, and everything was as expected. The room was clean and the service staff was very friendly. The breakfast was simple, but you get what you need and it is very healthy. The location is good, and the price is reasonable and it is probably the lowest in the area considering this is...

Pre-Christmas break with partner. Chose as price was good and location perfect. Breakfast included and just as well as Switzerland is so expensive. I was last in Berne in 1986... Prices have exploded! Room was modern and big. No fridge but we kept things on the ledge outside window... Some birds pecked our chocolate stash 😀. Convenient for railway station...

As a single male traveller I probably got the tiniest room in the hotel, windows facing backyard. The interior was quite modest, not what you would expect from a four star hotel. In the morning I was waken by construction work. The breakfast was good but check out time quite early, by 10 o'clock.

Owner operated places distinguish themself most of the time. That' s the point also with this hotel, which the last couple of years was an anonymous " Best Western". Now ownership has changed and it makes a difference. Most rooms are now renovated and in particular the service has become friendly and very good. The breakfast buffet is not enourmous...

Situated down town Bern - spacious room, but just one chair for two people....a common hotel mistake? The table with complementary water and tea/coffee makes a big +.

I have stayed in several hotels in Bern and this is one of the better ones. Very central, next to the tram and buses, restaurants, shops etc. The reception is friendly enough but very few people… We had a large room for three people, the beds were fine, the bathroom a fair size, TV screen small and hanging from the...

Very "correct" hotel with great location in the center of Bern. Pleasant friendly staff, decent sized room and breakfast included - though no fresh fruit until a nice waitress searched and found a small Apple!

The room with a high ceiling is plain but clean, the whole feel of the facility is dated. No way how to at least try to change the temperature in the room, the only way would be to open the little window, but then you get an earful of noise. The bed is OK, the bathroom as well, the breakfast...
