This hotel is about 25 mins out of Bern Centre. The reception staff are friendly and polite. They told me I could use the nearby swimming facilities as part of the room rate - but I didn't get a chance. The room was clean an in good state of decoration. I might have been given a disabled room as it...

Hotel is good for business trips. Service is ok, staff friendly, rooms are good size. Typical Holiday Inn, nothing extraordinary. Convenient direct access to the mall with variety of restaurant choices plus a grocery store.

The hotel part of the Westside Holiday Inn is exactly as you would expect from the chain - I have stayed in several recently and this is a good example. Bear in mind if travelling from overseas that Swiss prices for food and drink can be higher than you might expect - we were a little taken aback by the...

I got a decent room due to my IHG status but quite frankly I wouldn't pay a premium for the "better" rooms. I ate in the restaurant one evening but it was bland and extremely overpriced. Other nights I ate in the restaurants in the shopping centre. This still suffers from being a destination hotel for holiday groups and coupled...

Hotel is well located by both tram and train connections, about 20 minutes from the city centre. Fine verandah /bar area outside , obviously popular too with locals. There is a major shop complex just outside with many restaurants etc. Room was fine and wifi sound.

Pros: The rooms were amazing. Not very spacious but very modern. Hotel was very clean. The staff was very nice and helpful. The hotel is attached to a shopping mall, so you have easy access to shops and restaurants. The train station is literally across the hotel and it will take you 8 mins on the train to get to...

This is a modern hotel with spacious, clean rooms and generally good service. I stayed for three nights and slept well. A train and a tram station is just opposite the hotel and makes it easy to get into the city. We were offered free tickets by the hotel. A shopping center is in the same building and offers at...

If you are looking for a bed for the night in a clean and modern hotel this ticks all the boxes. It doesn't offer much more beyond this. Service was efficient and very close to the station for getting around. The hotel is also build into the shopping mall which has some alternative options for drinks/food.

Had the chance to stay here 3 times and I truly enjoyed it. The service is outstanding. The rooms are spacious comparing to other European hotels. Super comfortable bed and a great restaurant with an incredibly delicious breakfast. There's a mall attached to it with more options for food including a Thai restaurant that is also pretty good. Beautiful deck...

Parked in the underground carpark, came up to reception, greeted very efficiently and in a friendly way. Room as new, tidy and well equipped. Nice little extras. All in all a fine experience. Will come again. Hotel is part of a shopping centre with cinema complex and public swimming pool/wellness area. Good public transport connections.
