Wonderful stay in an inside facing boutique room - extremely calm and quiet despite the bustling (and very convenient) location of the hotel. Customer service is impeccable: I did have a few requests and everything was taken care of immediately. The room was clean and tidy, although the wall in the shower could use a little deep clean. Breakfast service in the room was always punctual, the food was always fresh and the portions were generous. One thing I noticed though - not all dishes on the tray were covered which would be a nice plus in these challenging times. Hotel highly recommended!

Our first time staying in the hotel and far exceeded our expectations. The staff were wonderful and pre anticipated our desires. I have visited the day spa on other occasions and it never disappoints. Brigette leads a team of caring, calm, highly knowledgeable and skilled therapists that effortlessly maintain exceptionally high standards ! It’s Wonderful that all products used are natural and non toxic, I don’t know of any other 5 star hotel that could boast this. Our treatment was given this time by Sonja - it was everything we needed. Forgive me for not remembering the name of our female table service (excellence) for the breakfast. She has served us before and is truly an asset to the Jack’s Brasserie. The venue itself is unbelievably beautiful; the decoration has melded the nostalgia and elegance of Bern impeccably. Thank you for the overall positive experience. We will return.

Firstly I have to say that this is a truly Beautiful Hotel in a fantastic location in Bern especially if you arriving by Train as you just walk out of the Station and you are there. Our Room 309 was large, gorgeous, generous in appointments and it was a Joy to be there. I loved the Nespresso machine and this made me really smile as everyday the water was topped up freshly in the machine- petty and minor and not expected but this is the level of attention placed by the Housekeeping staff who were all really Friendly.

I pondered a lot over the 3 days of our stay and cooled off a bit but still feel that our Checkin Experience was insulting and my Husband and I did feel offended. We are clean, well educated, soft spoken and always friendly as per the typical Australian way. I am Caucasian and my Husband Chinese and I know this isn’t necessary to say but for some reason the Checkin Person didn’t like us. He proceeded to insist that our Booking which was fully paid for through a well known Booking Site was for a lower Grade Room. I had screenshot our confirmation to make it easier on my iPhone in case of no wifi and I quietly and politely showed him the Room Type that was confirmed. In front of everyone there he flicked his hand and said he had no proof that I hadn’t photoshopped my screenshot. So I hotspotted my Husband’s wifi and logged into the full website and showed him the original Booking. He was huffy and went off to “speak to my Boss” and came back and said “ system problem” and that he would “upgrade us” to unbelievably the actual Room grade that had already paid for!!! No apologies for his humiliating us in public and he seemed to expect us to be Grateful??? My Husband being older than me had waited quietly watching and this Person again flicked his hand and said “are you right with your luggage “ but didn’t wait for an answer. We are NOT Precious but we had just come from the gorgeous Hotel cour deCourbou in Strasbourg where our luggage was whisked away before we could even think about it. So we were dismissed from Reception…

We got up to our absolutely lovely Room and decided to go for a walk as I just couldn’t fathom what had happened and needed a clear head to think objectively. I found myself making excuses for this person- language or cultural differences or having a bad day? Mistakes happen and we are Human and I almost let it all go until later we watched him proffering and gushing over two lots of American Couples and totally invisible to a Couple checking in of another Nationality. I will not call it what it looked like but…

I would like to finish this Review on a positive note and we would absolutely stay here again and more than happy to recommend it. The Staff in the Breakfast Room were so lovely, the Breakfast on each of our 3 mornings was delicious and very high quality. I als give a Shout out to Lisa in Reception who was on a different shift who was SO lovely and helpful and set us up with free travel tickets for the trams which is available through an app provided by the hotel. She was surprised we weren’t given this at Check in.

So rather than let a bad apple spoil a whole Bunch I really do confirm that this Hotel is more Beautiful than its website and the Room number 309 was perfect in every way.

The Schweizerhof is an amazing hotel. Our experience was overwhelmingly positing. The rooms are modern, with remote shutters that close out all light and noise. We slept so well because of them. The shower was like something out of a dream, and there was plenty of closet and drawer space, which is not always a given in European hotel rooms.

The hotel is right across from the train station, and very easy to get to. Our room came with a complimentary transit pass, and because the hotel is so close to the train station, most routes ended up going by the hotel.

The staff could not have been nicer. We arrived before check in, and the staff took our luggage and gave us a range of options in Bern to entertain ourselves while we waited. The hotel has a rooftop lounge that is open in good weather. It has fantastic views, great cocktails and snacks.

All of the staff greeted us by name after our first interaction. That really made us feel welcome. The rooms were so clean and comfortable. This is a truly first-rate hotel. I recommend it without any hesitation.

I really liked the hotel, it has its own unique style, high quality standards that can be seen even in small things. The staff is ready to fulfill any wish of the client, even at night. I want to pay special attention to the restaurant where excellent dishes are prepared, everyone can choose something new for themselves. The service staff of the restaurant works at the highest level. I really enjoyed spending time in the best hotel in Bern. I will definitely come back here again.

Stayed 3 nights in October 2022. Hotel is very conveniently located just across the street from the HBF Bern main train station.

Room was nice with a good bed and pillows. Airconditioning didn't seem to be working very well so our room was quite warm. Should have asked the front desk about it but we didn't.

Buffet breakfast was included in our rate and it was very good. Plenty of selection and good quality offerings. The dinner restaurant was fully booked for our 3 nights so we did not get a chance to try it out, but each night it was very full and busy in there so if you do stay here you may want to get a reservation ahead of your stay. Hotel was very nice with great staff and I would stay again.

We used Bern as a base to head to Grindelwald / Lauterbrunnen area and it worked out great for this. Trains leave every 30 min to Interlaken (54min ride) then connections are scheduled that you get off that train and catch train to Grindelwald (30min I think). Bern was excellent for a base camp so to speak.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on TripAdvisor. I am happy to read that you had a pleasant stay with us and especially enjoyed the comfort of our rooms and our very central location in Bern for your excursions. There is no better feedback for us than the wish to return and we will be looking forward to welcoming you back. Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience with the temperature in your room. Our ventilation system adjusts itself on the outside temperature and in the fall, when the temperatures vary quickly and significantly, it sometimes takes a little time for it to adjust properly. However, as you rightfully mentioned it, our Front Office Team has various ways to assist you with this and ensure a comfortable sleeping temperature. Please feel free to ask them on your next visit. I am sorry to read that you did not have the chance to dine with you during your stay. Our restaurant is indeed very booked and we cannot always guarantee the availability of a table at the time of arrival. I do hope that we will have the chance to welcome you back soon and then accommodate you in our Jack's Brasserie as well. Kind regards, Maximilian von Reden General Manager

We stayed in Bern three nights and the hotel was outstanding. We were most impressed with the housekeeping. Every day, twice a day, they cleaned or refreshed the room, replenished the coffee and sparking water in the room. Everyone we encountered was nice and the air conditioning was good. The location is fantastic. It is near the train station and old town. Because of its proximity to the train station, we used Bern as a hub to see other places. We highly recommend.

This hotel is beautiful. We were immediately greeted by a bellman, who took our bags to our room for us. Check-in was a breeze, and our room was ready. We were on the sixth floor and had a small, narrow window/door in the bedroom and one in the bathroom. The drapes were remote controlled, which was very convenient. There was an actual water closet next to the bathroom, and a shower, very large tub and two sinks in the main bathroom area. Everything was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable.
If you come in by train, the hotel is about a 5-7 minute walk from the train station. You’ll walk through the bus station and a shopping plaza, down two sets of escalators, and across a street to get there. We were only here one night, so we didn’t have much time to make the most of our stay. We requested a later checkout (normal checkout is at noon), and received a 2p checkout, which gave us enough time to walk the streets of Bern first thing in the morning. We walked easily to the clock tower, Einstein’s house, the federal buildings, and the famous cathedral. This hotel is also very close to the Christmas markets, which we found three very easily (within a 5 minute walk of the hotel). We would definitely come back!

Enjoyed a six night stay. Location excellent, across from the main train station. Lots of good restaurants and shopping opportunities in the vicinity. Think we booked a "small" room but it was larger than many others we have stayed in. Room was immaculately clean with a turndown service nightly (including a tasty Swiss chocolate). Shower room was one of the best we have ever experienced, massive shower head, simple controls, Bvlgari toiletries. Staff genuinely friendly throughout the stay. Pleasant bar on the ground floor, which also serves a limited food menu.

Downsides? Very little. The control panel for the room lights seemed a bit quirky (written instructions might have helped) and the heating on the air conditioning did not seem to match up with the temperature showing on the wall.

All in all, a fabulous hotel to stay in from which to explore the Swiss capital.

After a nice stay in Zermatt, this was our next destination. We were here for four nights that included Christmas eve and Christmas Day. We had booked the place at the insistence of my son, who had stayed here earlier and who was insistent that we experience the hospitality of the hotel.

The hotel is just across the road from Bern Hauptbahnhof, making its location extremely attractive. While we crossed the road at a very conveniently located signal at the far end of the road, there is an elevator from the lower level of the station that will save you the bother of wheeling your luggage across the road.

We were early for our check in, and hence our room was not ready. However, the staff at the reception checked us in and took care of our luggage, while we went in search of food. There is a very large CooP outlet in the vicinity and having assuaged our hunger pangs, we were back.

The room - we had a boutique Junior suite on a triple sharing basis - was adequate for the three of us. The extra cot was accommodated at the foot end of the double bed. With the rest of the furniture, there was just adequate place for us to move around. The beds were extremely comfortable and hard pillows were provided on request.

The amenities provided were top class and unstinted. There wash area has two adits, hence privacy could be an issue when three people occupy the room. Also, the room was quite warm during the nights and we couldn’t find a thermostat to adjust the temperature.

The breakfast spread was excellent - the croissants were among the best that we had during this trip. The choices for vegetarians were limited, but omelettes, pancakes and waffles were available to order. Since we were in the hotel on Christmas Eve, we opted for their special dinner. Keeping our vegetarian proclivities in mind, they had specially curated some very tasty dishes for us. The service was top class, friendly and efficient, making it a very memorable sit down dinner.

As I have mentioned, the hotel is just across the street from the train station and from the road terminus, making travel to and from it very easy. This also meant that even on Christmas Day, when most of the dining options were closed, we were able to find food.

The historic old town is barely about 10 minutes away. The walk is very pleasant and at our request, the hotel had organised, for us a paid tour. This tour was extremely interesting and informative

Bei einer allfälligen Reservation bitten wir Sie, dies unserer Reservationsabteilung zu erwähnen. Wir würden uns sehr freuen, Sie bald bei uns im Hotel Schweizerhof Bern & SPA begrüssen zu dürfen. Freundliche Grüsse Ihr Hotel Schweizerhof Bern & SPA Team
