The name of the hotel is a little confusing. On the internet, is Hotel City Am-Banhorf however when I got to this hotel, it was Hotel City. I was not sure if this is the right hotel until the reception told me it is the right one.
This hotel has the best location. It is right opposite Bern train station. Most of the tram stations are around that area. Although it is a little expensive but the location was fantastic!
The entrance is unique – you will walk through a “bridge” over a water pond into the hotel property. The reception area is not big but the staff was helpful. She gave me all the tourist information I needed. There is a computer by the reception for guest use however they do charge for internet. The wifi service in the hotel is not free and the charge was a little high. There is no breakfast included in the room rate.
The room was huge comparing with most of the hotel in Europe. It doesn’t look like a room for a single use. It can easily fit 2 adults without a problem. There was a clean and comfortable queen bed, big working desk and a heater below it, a closet and a small TV on the wall.
My favorite is the bathroom. It was clean and big with a bathtub. Amenities are more then enough.
The room has a good view of the train station.
