Stayed one night at this hotel. I loved the location of this hotel. There are lot of restaurants near by and the tram/bus station is very close that you will feel so much connected to any other locations in Bern. You can walk the old town and see all it has very easily from this hotel. The staffs are very...

We spent one night in this hotel and I have mixed feelings about it. The bed was the hardest I've slept on in any county, anywhere. It was almost comical how hard it was. The bathroom was a box built inside the bedroom, but the weirdest part about the bathroom was the soap. The handsoap and shower soap and shampoo...

People are nice at the reception. Not sure that rooms are very well isolated from noise. The rooms are not very big but bathroom, toilets and room itself are clean. I think that the main drawback is poor choice for breakfast.

This hotel is not cheap, even for Bern. There is also a faint smell of cigarette smoke throughout the hotel, and the breakfast is adequate, but with a limited offering. My room was quiet, and the staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed two nights with work, and it was your typical 'not very good European hotel'. The worst bit was the pillow. You only get one, and it's hopeless. Combined with a not very comfy mattress and no 24hr reception it's a passable place to stay in a decent location, but not somewhere I'll be rushing back to anytime soon.

We stayed here for just 1 night so I am not sure if that's enough time to really give an in-depth review. The location is perfect as it is in the old town. However, the room we stayed in was very small and I found the bathroom arrangement a bit weird. No toiletries were provided in our room which I...

We had an excellent visit at Hotel Goldener Schlussel for three nights. We were upgraded to a large room in the back which was quiet and very nice. The hotel staff were extremely helpful with travel advice and reservations. Breakfast was good and plentiful. If we return to Bern, we would come back to this hotel.

The hotel is easily reachable on foot from the RR station, unless you are carrying lots of bags, The inside of the building is recently updated and modern even though the building appears to date from the 1500's. Berne is beautifully maintained very old city to be explored on foot. The room was OK with hard wood floor. The bathroom...

The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was good - walkable from the train station, and close to downtown. But the room we had, for the price we paid, was very poor. I have been traveling for decades, and I know what to expect in a major city, in a good location. But our room, which was definitely NOT...

After walking the old town, looking at menus, we finally decided on this restaurant. It looked spacious, clean and attractive. We both took their menu's recommendation which was lamb filets with their twist on corn fritters. The lamb was simply delicious as was everything else. Service was attentive and pleasant...the price was not cheap but standard for Switzerland and well...
