I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. It really fulfilled my expectations of a grand Swiss hotel. From check in, everything was seamless. I arrived hours early, and was given a warm introduction to the hotel and its services. My room wasn't quite ready (4 hours early), but it was quickly prepared for me. I was offered an upgrade...

The room I had looked over the river and the mountains, and was very large. However, as I was only sleeping there for six hours, I was not really able to take advantage of the beautiful set up. For some $600 a night, not even a cup of coffee was included. I found this quite objectionable, as all over Europe,...

My husband and I had a really nice time at this hotel. Everyone was very attentive and the accommodations were great. We sometimes felt underdressed in the evenings if we weren't in suits and evening gowns, so we normally headed straight to our room if we arrived back to the hotel in the evening.

It goes like this: attention to detail the likes of which you may never has seen before. Go once and you'll get a feel for what is meant by this. Go again and you'll know exactly what we mean as you start noticing how your room is cleaned and where objects are left. Incredible!

This is a wonderful hotel. They get all of the details right. My room was spacious and comfortable with a small balcony overlooking the Aar with the high Alps in the background. Staff are very attentive and helpful. According to my Swiss friends this is the best hotel in Bern. This is one of my favorite hotels.

Stayed with the family in this wonderful hotel over the weekend. Fantastic experience right from the arrival. Super friendly and attentive staff, beautiful room with the breathtaking view over the river and town. The food in Vue restaurant was delicious, got especially impressed by their Bern burger with the home made truffle mayonnaise and by locally sourced Angus Beef. Would...
