“The Spa has opened”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

We returned to the Hotel Schweizerhof for the second time and were not disappointed. The room was great, the service impeccable (see my last review, nothing has changed). Since our last stay, the spa had opened and we were curious to find out how it was.

The spa is very nice. It's not overly large, the hotel is not a "Wellness" hotel. But the spa does provide a very nice area to relax, with a great pool (for relaxing, NOT for swimming), and the typical spa-things (like sauna and such). We had the pool area to ourselves most of the time, I'm not sure if this was just luck or due to the "business" nature of many hotel guests.

Overall, a superb hotel, we'll be definitely going back again.

The only thing to mention on the negative side is the noise during the night. Our room was looking out over the Bahnhofplatz, which - unfortunately - is rather loud on weekends. While the hotel itself was quiet, the great location in the heart of Bern also results in rather noisy night (with open windows, that is).

Just returned from a short stay at this hotel and can find nothing to fault it. My husband came out on business for 2 nights before I joined him for the weekend and he was equally as pleased with the service of the hotel: he has visited Bern on business before but this was his first visit to Hotel Schweizerhof. One thing I thought was great was the free soft drinks and beer from the mini-bar, not something you normally get. Also the in room coffee machine was very welcomed - lovely fresh coffee free on hand. The staff were all very friendly, yet professional - special mention to our waitress Susanna (from Berlin)in Jack's Brasserie.
We had the business package In our room rate and my husband found this very useful and efficient. The hotel is in a fantastic position for the railway and other transport. You may not get fantastic views from the hotel but only a few minutes walk and the beautiful River Aare and views are in reach. One note of caution for those who like the window open - there is noise from the front, but after all it is a city centre hotel, so maybe choose a courtyard room. It didn't bother us and we had asked for a city view room, but then we are used to the noise of London. However once you have the windows closed and at night the shutters down, it is so dark and peaceful that we slept in until 10.30 one morning! I highly recommend a stay here and if in Bern again we would not hesitate to return.

Stayed there a couple of times now and still same perfect service as one would expect from a top address !
rooms are great, very functional, great styling. food is excellent specially the brasserie. but the best, as it always is, are the people ! call me old fashioned but i do appreciate quality service, starting from the brilliant doorman. a concierge as they should be in all the hotels all over the world ! and the perfect service in Jack's, the restaurant. well done indeed. i wish more hotels in this price class would follow your lead !

We had a great & enjoyable stay at the hotel. The location is perfect for a city trip to Bern and also for arrival with public transport.

The hotel staff is very friendly and the service was excellent. Although they have no specific things to do for kids, they made it comfortable for the kids and were very happy to help.

Overall, the place is great for a luxurious city trip to Bern.
