Booked this hotel through an offer on expedia. Slightly out of the city center but easily reached on the tram which stops directly in front of the hotel in 10min. The tickets on the tram are quite expensive though and travelers should try to buy batch tickets which are slightly discounted in a tourist office opposite the central train station...

Excellent hotel, one of the best we have stayed in, and we have stayed in a lot ! Great location, great food, amazing views, an ultra modern bathroom, and fabulous service, This really is a 5 star novotel.

Although this hotel is not in the center of Bern, it is across the street from a tram line that runs every 5-7 minutes and takes you downtown in no time at all. The hotel is new and everything is modern and attractive. Our room had a separate bathtub and shower. The buffet breakfast was fanstastic, all kinds of meats,...

The room was very clean and modern. The food in the restaurant is of a high quality. The hotel appears to be away from the action, but the tram right out the front is a quick trip (10 minutes) into the old town. Had a great time and would highly recommend it to family and friends.

Novotel Bern Expo is located opposite of BEA (Fair gorunds) and quite some distance from the center of Bern. Our choice was primary based on the excellent rate we were quoted from the hotel through its website,168CHF/per night for a family of 4 breakfast included, and its proximity to the Jungfrau region,some 75km of motorway driving. The hotel is adjoined...

We stayed one night in family room on the way from geneva to the Bernese Oberland. standard Novotel rooms, always pretty reliable. Easy to get to with tram no 9, or it would have been if central part of bern wasn't dug up at the time! Good to have the kettle and teabags etc (unusual in continental hotels). Restaurant was...

My brother and I stayed one night at the Novotel in Bern, across the street from the Expo. A tram stop right outside across the street made it easy to get into town. The hotel is a little distance from the train station, but we had no trouble getting around. The room, for a European hotel, was huge. The bed...

The hotel is some way out of the centre of town (which in a small place like Bern is saying something), but easily reached by tram. We walked back with our 7 and 11 year olds and they managed the trek, but there are more central places. Rooms were quite compact but adequate and for one night we found it...

The Bern Novotel Expo is easily reached by taking the number 9 tram from the station to the end of the line at Guisanplatz. It takes roughly ten minutes and along the way you see a great deal of the city and many places that are good for stopping and getting supplies, such as co/op. (grocery store) As for the...

After staying at quaint and charming Swiss inns, I have to admit it was culture shock stepping into the sleek, modern world of the Novotel Bern Expo. But don't get me wrong, it's a very nice place to stay-- immaculate and beautifully tended as in my somewhat limited experience I've found Swiss hotels to be. Desk personnel is multilingual, patient...
