Never having been to the area I was excited as I drove into the arch through the old city wall. The old town area takes you back in time and I was further excited when I got into my room, opened the doors to the outside and looked down upon Lake Murten. The hotel is not high end but doesn't...

Came here on a business trip always used by my company. Very comfortable with a wonderful view of the lake. Good choice for breakfast and excellent meal in the restaurant. Murten well worth a visit especially carnival time .

We were at Hotel Murtenhof and Krone for one night in late September. The front desk was very friendly and helpful. The room (51) had a pretty lake view and was very large and clean. The bathroom was small but also clean and fine for a night, and there was an extra sink in the room which helped. Breakfast was... More

We have only had snacks and cocktails in the glass enclosed Terrace Restaurant. The snacks were very good and the staff was super accommodating. The Hotel and Restaurant is family operated and you can tell. We will be back here for dinner and plan to stay in the Hotel next time.

We used this hotel as a jumping off point for day trips (Bern, Avenches, Emmental) - location was perfect. The hotel appears as if it used to be two properties (Murtenhof and Krone) and then were merged (i.e. two entrances, two separate signs, two separate elevators). The rooms are unique - my friends had the room next door and we... More

Very friendly and helpful reception. Our room on the second floor had a wonderful lake view, was clean and comfortable enough. The bathroom had been updated but the room itself would benefit from a new look and a different paint colour than bright green. The breakfast was included and was fine. The hotel had an old time feel but without... More

We stayed for two nights with another couple. We paid the same price but their room faced the lake and was considerably larger. The morning breakfast buffet was good with a nice view of the lake. The hotel is located in the old city and we enjoyed visiting the various shops and restaurants. They are not bashful about their prices.

Lovely historic hotel situated on edge of old town in murten. Lovely views of lake. We had a superior room on 1st floor, good sized with large windows overlooking the lake. Bathroom tiny with small shower only. Breakfast adequate served in lovely room overlooking the lake. Staff very helpful and friendly.

I stayed for three nights in this comfortable hotel. The sweeping views over the lake from the dining room and from the breakfast room are really awesome! The hotel is not flashy, but I appreiated the honest accommodation and freindly reception! A great plus is the dining room where hotel guests can make themselves a fresh cup of coffee throughout...
