Stayed for three nights on a business trip. Hotel is a typical business hotel. Although hotel is not located in center city there is public transportation available nearby. Rooms are clean and ok equiped, but nothing specal. Absolutely fine for business stay. For dinner I recommend "Rosengarten" just a 5 minutes walk away - great location with direct view to...

I've stayed in many mid-priced hotels in Bern and the main point is most hotels are not that nice, but still quite expensive. We decided to try out the Novotel since the price was pretty good and on the site it is rather new and clean. The hotel is very clean and the rooms were comfortable and modern (double room)....

Bern was a gorgeous city with a lovely ambiance, but this hotel does not mirror those charms. While it was afforable and comfortable, it did not evoke a lot of style. Because we had a car, it was an easy place to stay but we drove to the city center to see the sights, etc. I would not recommend the...

We stayed at the Novotel Bern Expo for 3 nights in Sept 2009. It is outside of the city centre, but by the end of our first day, we were more than happy with the location. Tram line No 9 terminates right outside the hotel, so no chance of getting lost or not finding the place! Trams run from early...

The Novotel Bern Expo was my choice for my second stay in Bern. The hotel is modern and has all the facilities one would need although it feels a bit sterile. Even though this hotel is outside the city centre, the tram terminus is right outside the hotel door and it's only a 10 min ride to Bern Hauptbahnhoff, slightly...

I stayed at Novotel Bern Expo between July 10th and July 12th and had issues with their service. One thing that really concerned me was that I felt that I was led on by their breakfast fee. I thought that my hotel stay covered breakfast; however, this wasn't the case. Many of my other European hotels that I stayed at...

Stopped one night on our tour of Europe. Get room and breakfast on a special offer and its very good value. A fairly new hotel, staff very attentive and dealt with requests well. We were located on floor 6 and views were great over the neighbouring stables and distant mountains. Car park felt secure but was charged extra. Breakfast excellent,...

No frills. It's yet another Novotel with the same room plan, same colour scheme, but also same hospitality and riliability. It is not in the city centre, but the tram stops literally in front of it and, even better, it's actually a 20-minute walk to the centre. Good value for money.

The Novotel is exelect when you're in Bern for a) business or b) expo. In case you're there fir sightseeing or romance you should avoid it. The hotel is a typical 3 - 4 star place, a bit cold and without any charme - but effective. The rooms are ok and clean, the bathroom really nice. It's just a "no...

The hotel is nice and clean and very quiet. It’s probably used more for business travelers; however, we really enjoyed it. Our room was large by European standards, clean, had a mini-fridge, safe, and tv with a few channels in English. The hotel is located outside of the heart of Bern by the Expo Center. However, it is a short...
