Overall the rooms are nice and clean, very modern. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is small, but it is free so you can't complain about that considering how expensive it is to dine in Switzerland. What I didn't like is how loud it is outside at night. If you stay here, be sure to request a...

A short tram ride (one stop) from the train station, in the middle of old town, right around the corner from the Einstein apartment museum. An easy walk to the bear garden or the botanical garden, and less than a block from the clock tower. Rooms were nice, check in and out was easy, luggage storage easy as well. Great...

Hotel Goldener Schlüssel in Bern is well located near the center of town. The room was very clean and modern--the bathroom is a modular, opaque glass rectangle--very cool, but not sound proof! On our particular visit it was hot and humid, and the only way to get moving air was to open the window. If you're in the economy rooms...

The breakfast buffet is delicious and generous. The location on the Rathausgasse is ideal - near several historic sites, restaurants and shopping areas. Herr Troxler and his staff are very gracious, and more than willing to answer questions and provide directions/suggestions about sight-seeing in Bern and other nearby towns. Bathrooms are small and modular, as has been noted in other...

Situated in a quiet alley in the city area, no far from shopping. Rooms are very clean and the modular bathroom concept within the room is an interesting concept for use of the limited space. The walls between rooms are however not very well sound-proofed which means one can hear neighbors talking or TV sets on. No jugs for boiling...

We had difficulty in finding hotel from Bern railway station.The bathroom was the size that you find in cruise ship-small & tight spaces.No central heating during our 2 night stay in April (outside temperature 4 degree C( was told by receptionist central heating only turn on when outside temperature is 0 degree C).Not worth the price we paid.

Walking from the train station to this hotel is a very pleasant stroll in the old city of Bern. The facade of the hotel is historical. But, what a disappointment, inside is a standard airport / suburbean hotel, cheaply modern. Zero charm. And the restaurant, though reasonably good, is the same. So stay there, good and cheap, but spend all...

The hotel is located 1,2km from the train station Bern. That's a 15 min walk or 20€ by Taxi. As the hotel is down town, there a various restaurants for dinner. The rooms are clean, WLAN is for free. Although the rooms are not luxuriously equipped, it was a nice stay to wait for the meeting next morning.

We visited Bern as a family with younger kids (5, 8, 15) and were pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Goldener Schluessel. The staff were friendly, the rooms efficient, clean and very spacious. The bathroom pod in our room was a fun solution that offered the convenience of a small bathroom without any fuss. Bern is a great city to visit...

We stayed here for three nights in late January 2014. The hotel reception staff at this hotel were very accommodating and eager to suggest local attractions and good restaurants. In fact, it happened to be my sister's birthday on the day we checked into this hotel, and the reception lady was kind enough to recommend a restaurant up the road....
