Like several others, we were very keen to stay in the UNESCO World Heritage Bern Old City. Hotel Belle Epoque was a magnificent choice for our 5 night stay. There is a bus stop (Nydegg) virtually outside the front door, and a post box which was convenient for sending off those all-important postcards. Our room was very comfortable and well-appointed....

What's good here: - Perfect location for exploring Bern sights (and restaurants) - Pleasant, helpful staff - That unique small hotel feel (if you, like me, prefer this to big hotel chains) - Attractive decor What can be improved: - Breakfast was uninspiring for a 4-star hotel - We found the pillows uncomfortable which affected sleep quality - Not always...

We chose Hotel Belle Epoque based on its position on a map of Bern as we wanted to be in the centre of the old city. We were not disappointed; the situation was perfect - at the quiet end of the main street, 200m from the bears (very important because they don't seem to come out very often), close to... More

Perfect location in the city center. You can walk all over and besides the bus stop is just meters away. The staff is so helpful and friendly! Rooms have good / enough size. Decoration is appealing and there is a cultural program (musical) all year round. We will surely come back here in our next visit to Bern, hopefully in... More

Great location, very pleasant staff. The room wasnt completely soundproof, so I could here how people walk upstairs and during the night woke up by crying baby on the next door. Room was clean but if you are used to the modern, super new hotels, then everything looks old. Anyhow, the breakfast was not included. Despite of the fact that... More

Booked here on a whim when visiting with a colleague for meetings... Found out they had a band on that evening so went out and had an early dinner and came back to the receptionist on keyboards, with a guitarist.... Excellent treatment of several standards really floated my boat!!! Bar was pleasant, the room was spacious and whilst the bathroom... More

The hotel is located in the best area of Bern if you want to enjoy the old part of the city, the shops and restaurants. But you can also take nice long walks at the green banks of river Arle, located 5 min from the hotel. The hotel is furnished in a traditional, art deco influenced, really charming style. (So...

Superb location close to the bear pit(really) on the beautiful main Street, this is a small hotel, traditionally but tastefully furnished with many original features. Rooms are small ( bathrooms even smaller) , clean, warm, with large comfortable beds. Welcome and breakfast were typically Swiss ( a good thing!) and nothing like a big chain hotel. Not cheap but well... More

I would start by saying that if the rate had been lower I would have been satisfied. It's not bad at all, staff were friendly and there are cute art deco efforts and no complaints, apart from the noise and kitchen smells wafting up to our windows from the restaurant below (room on the back). Just, it's not great at... More

I stayed for 2 nights in early October and have mixed feelings about this hotel. The combination of hotel/restaurant and perhaps overstretched staff meant that service at the front desk was virtually non existent...I usually had to ring the desk bell and wait for someone to arrive. The hotel decor is faded or rarher, tired, though my room was spacious,... More
