“Nice Modern Hotel Room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

The hotel is just 5 mins from one of the exit of Berne Railway station. Walk toward Migro supermarket direction, take the escalator where the supermaket is on your right. When you come up, you will see UBS bank in front of you. Turn left into the hotel street, and walk about 5 mins.

The hotel entrance and lobby is very small, do not missed it and end up in their sister hotel next door.

The room is very spacious and modern. It comes with free internet, 1 welcome drink and breakfast. Breakfast is at the end of 1st floor. Breakfast area not very big but food choice is quite good, as you get 4 types of juice, different cuts of ham, bread roll and cereals. They will serve you coffee and tea at the table.

Location is within walking distance to most attractions. The tram is near the hotels.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

Stayed here for 4 days in a double room. Room adequate size with simple furniture typical of hotel rooms in Switzerland Breakfast room was bright and clean and they served fruit, cereal, yogurt, cheese, breads, ham/other meats and made cooked eggs with meat to order.

The hotel desk staff was young and very friendly and knowledgeable. Spoke excellent English.

Perhaps the best was the location. Five minute walk to Bahnhof and many restaurants.

Would go back.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

We came in on the the train to Bern and walked directly to the hotel in about 5 minutes. Check in was quick and the room was just fine. Beds could be a bit softer, but all in all the room and the bathroom was fine. We lok for clean rooms, good location and professional treatment, and that's what we got. The breakfast is fine and plentyful and free newspapers are provided (nice after Saas Fee prices of $10 for an english paper). The hotel is an easy walk from Bundesplatz, and the Altstadt, with a straight access to the clock tower and on to the Baren Graben, the famous brown bears of Bern. The hotel sponsors the bears and has lovely souvenirs for purchase at the reception counter. We would definitely use this hotel again when in Bern.

Nice hotel. Clean, Great staff, Beds small but rooms warm and clean. good shower etc. the bar is next door in the Beren hotel. The bar, altough popular, lacks atmostphere. Not much to the decor. Surprised Bristol ( which best western is called) doesnt have its own bar. But staff and so nice and one feels very much at home. Not 4 star rating. 3+ perhaps

Room Tip: ask for quier room on inside, Not on street if you want to open window or balcony and a quier night...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

I found this a nice hotel, but not really a 4 star hotel by European standards. The hotel is very clean and staff friendly, but it has a small lobby, the rooms are rather big, but with small bathroom. I consider it a 3 star hotel, but no more.

The best of the hotel, no doubt, is the location. Very close to the train station, parlament and University.

I think also the price (200 EUR/night) is too high for the quality delivered.
