great location, clean and friendly staff but lacks the little extras that make up a 4 star hotel. Very small reception area, no lounge or gathering area, no pool and no restaurant. A very sparse breakfast served in a small room. Room very modern with very low bed that was hard to get out of. Nice size and clean.

Our room faced the stet but was very quiet. We are n the fourth floor and had a nice little terrace. Great location in the old part of town with two minute walk to the bus, train and trolley hub. Note no fridge in room if that would be something you need. Staff friendly and helpful. Good breakfast buffet. For...

Very good location, very close to the city centre and public transportation. Room is basic but clean. Breakfast is good, service also very good. They provide to you a public transportation card that allow you to visit the city free of charge.

We were at the front and I understand these rooms have air conditioning, which we needed, temp was 25 to 30 in September. Room is good size, nice lighting. Good size bathroom efficient shower. Train station is two blocks away, lots of restaurants and cafes, close to old town. Snacks and inexpensive meals available a few blocks away at Migros....

This was a very clean room just two blocks from the train station. Staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast served each morning was quite good. While the room and bathroom were relatively spacious, it did have the feel of a college dormitory though it was quiet despite being rather during my two night stay. One advantage to the...

Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and a perfect location with only 3 minutes by foot from the train main station of Bern. A nice breakfast buffet adds upt to it. You can't ask for more for a one night's stay.

Everything is prefect except overpriced laundry room usage fee. It costs $10. Which is acceptable but not reasonable. Usually hotels charge from free to $3. Everything else are good. Nice breakfast, large room.

A very good hotel near the city centre and parliament of Bern. No hotel parking so you need to park 500m away in the underground Casino car park. Rooms are nice and clean with a very good WiFi coverage and speed. Continental breakfast available and you can ask the kitchen for scrambled eggs or pancakes. Near bars and restaurants. All...
