Location is awesome and the hotel is comfortable. However, what sets them apart is the best customer service we’ve experienced in all of Switzerland. Kind, efficient, knowledgeable, and always spot on.

We spent just 2 nights and didn't need laundry, but I remember a bag in room, perhaps it was for it. Self laundry, I doubt.

Hello, I will be traveling to Bern by auto. Will there be a place to put my car nearby?
There is parking nearby at the Casinoplatz. The Casinoplatz is an underground parking garage with plentiful parking. I dropped my wife and suitcases off at the hotel and then drove the short distance to the parking garage and then walked back to the hotel. It's about a 5 minute walk or less.

Dear Client, from the trainstation you can take the main exit, then cross the place under the glass roof to the department store «Loeb». Behind the «Loeb» you can find the Schauplatzgasse and the Hotel Bären am Bundesplatz. It takes you max. 5 minutes. Kind regards Carla Tichelli .
