Stayed here a couple of days for business. Rooms are basic and slightly smallish with narrow single beds, but spotlessly clean with a practical design. Noise was not an issue as my room was at the back. There was a free welcoming drink in the evening. Buffet breakfast was included and offered reasonable variety. For Bern it offers acceptable value,...

This hotel is in a great location in downtown Bern. Rooms were nice and clean. The only negative was the parking, which was 4 blocks away and 27 franks/night.

We stayed here for two nights after skiing in Zermatt. I managed to get a rate of £95 a night which was very good for Bern or anywhere in Switzerland. We were very impressed with the welcome, free drink, room cleanliness, location and breakfast. The bed was on the smallish side but comfortable. I would highly recommend staying here and...

The hotel has a perfect location especially if you are arriving by train. The front desk is pleasant and helpful; the room and the bathroom were small, but comfortable, well-appointed and clean. Even with the window open the room was quiet at night. Breakfast was fine and check-out fast and smooth.

We have visited Berne for Christmas each year for the past 5 years. We have stayed at 3 other hotels but this has been the best (and cheapest) so far.

Hotel OK, free drink on arrival from the bar. Rooms are a little on the small side, and if you have a room facing the main road its a bit loud, even have complementary ear plugs in the room

Great staff, had street front room with a/c, no street noise heard at night, free use of computer and printer, nice location, could walk to everything. No problem leaving the key at the front desk when going out, free drink coupon a plus.

We stayed in Bern one night owing to train schedules which made a break in the journey a good idea. The location for this hotel is excellent as it is very close to the station and half a block away from the main shopping and sights of Marktgasse. The room was clean, modern and well appointed. We very much enjoyed...
