The location of the historic Schweizerhof in Bern is perfect. It's right adjacent to the train station and in the heart of the always buzzing downtown Bern. We were warmly welcomed and got checked in quickly. The rooms are modern and slick. In my room however, there were some scratches on the wall, most likely due to luggage being tossed...

Perfect competition at the Schweizerhof in Bern. The arrival at the hotel last Thursday night was perfect from the Concierge side as well as from the Reception desk. Rooms, meeting rooms and service were excellent. Jack's Brasserie Restaurant has a typical architecture and very good cooking.

I wouldn't know where to start. I feel bad for all the hotels after this one we stay at. This is probably the best property I have stayed in -in about 9-10 years. Beginning with the greeting, hot towels and drinks upon check-in. I'm sure everyone has touted it's fantastic location. You get out of the train station and start...

The hotel is Swiss posh. The room I was in was very large and very comfortable. Most importantly, every night the staff would leave a fine piece of Swiss chocolate bedside for you. Location wise it is center of the city just across the street from the central train station. This might lead you to believe that it would be...
