A little too far from the train station to walk to this hotel, but the bus service is free with the Swiss Rail pass, and the hotel gives bus passes to guests. Beds were comfortable and clean, but be forewarned if you need a triple and are assigned Room 151 and told it is on the fourth floor. It is...

Location is fine. 2 bus stops, bus frequent enough. Staff, both reception and restaurant, are nice and helpful. Breakfast is good. BUT never ever booked the standard triple room in summer. We stayed 6 nights in the Alpinesuite (we are allocated...not we booked it in purpose) and the room is always stuffy because there are only a few roof top...

The room was very clean. There were some nice treatments like a sewing kit or a nailfile. The room has been cleaned every day. The staff at the reception has been super friendly and even helped me when I needed an iron. The breakfast had a nice variety of cheese and sliced sausage as well as yogurt and bread from...

The hotel is located in the old part of the capital, very close to the University buildings and 20-25 minutes walk from the central station and the city center. It is divided into two buildings and I was in the second one, on the 4th floor. A small outdoor passageway links the two, where it is possible to smoke. The...

Stayed at the hotel on a short holiday trip. We stayed in a room that must once have been a small studio apartment. The rooms are nice and functional. The choice at the breakfast hotel was better than we expected. The staff was very friendly. All in all, a very good choice in this category. We will definitely consider this...

Staff were friendly, attentive and had everything organised for a smooth check in (from international, online booking). Rooms are compact, but comfortable and very clean. Hotel is a short walk down to the main area of the beautiful old town of Bern, with excellent bus and tram services closeby too!
