“Clean, modern, nice breakfast buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2011

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It has obviously been renovated a few years ago and the renovation has given it a very tasteful, modern look. Their breakfast buffet was excellent.

My only small gripe is that the wireless internet was provided by a 3rd party (swisscom) and had to be paid for. To be fair, there is free wired internet in the room, but as we were travelling light with our tablets rather than with our laptops this didn't help us.

We would definitely stay here again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2011

We stayed in the Alpenblick for two nights, and found it quiet and friendly. Although we knew there were trams nearby, we initially walked from the station as we were unsure where the actual tram stop would be. It's a reasonable enough walk, even with bags, but for those with less energy, take tram 9, direction Guisanplatz, and get off at Breitenrain. The tram tells you the stops as you go, and you can buy tickets from the multi-language machines beside each stop. Once at Breitenrain, it's an easy walk to the hotel. The room itself was spotless and the breakfast was very good, and it's also only a 15 minute walk to the Stade de Suisse.

We stayed at the Alpenblick for the weekend, visiting the beautiful city of Bern. The location of the hotel is absolutely perfect: just a stone's throw away from the very center of the city it's located in a lovely, very quiet area, next to the old casern. Close by are the beautiful "Rosengarten" with a fantastic view over the old tow as well as the botanical garden. Friendlyness and helpfulness of staff are overwhelming. We instantly felt at home here. They really care for each guest staying at their hotel. The hotel is being redesigned at the moment and is turned into a beautiful boutique hotel. The rooms are neat and clean with modern furnishing, TV, free WiFi, telephone and lots of space for luggage.
Unfortunatley the restaurant was closed during our stay but staff was very helpful and recommended a broad variety of lovely typical restaurants nearby.
Breakfast is served in the typical buffet-style with a huge choice of fresh food in the restaurant of the hotel, which has a very nice combination of retro style and modern touch.
So if you are looking for a very cozy, personal place to stay, this is the right hotel for you. We can recommend it to anyone staying in Bern. Best hospitality ever! Thank you very very much!

Originally thought we wanted to stay in city center, but family of four with two little kids made that difficult. Alpenblick is easy tram ride to center, in nice quiet leafy neighborhood. My kids particularly enjoyed the grassy field across the street. Neighborhood is "real" bermn and wa s nice to see. Plenty of places to eat nearby - we had dinner at Italian cafe up the street. Supermarket also close. Wine bar and restaurant across the street with patio - we looked enviously at the nicely dressed folks having a glass of wine as we put our kids to bed and collapsed exhausted after long day sightseeing.

Room was spacious, but as some others have said a bit basic. Breakfast was fine - also a bit basic, but filling and free.

I wouldn't have noticed there where two buildings if it hadn't been mentioned by another reviewer. Main, older building is quite handsome
Was glad not to stay in center after all, as there is a lot of activity there.

Overall, a quiet option in nice neighborhood not too far from the main area. It's a solid 3-star in terms of service and amenities.

1) Large room (as compared to most budget hotel in Europe)
2) Free cable internet (no free wireless)
3) Free breakfast (with no hot food - only bread and cereal)
4) Two supermarkets (Mirgos and COOP) nearby (right off the tram station)
5) Tram cost CHF 2.20 per trip (one-way) from railway station to hotel (buy the short distance ticket) and have LOADS of coins ready!!!
6) Reception is good and can speak reasonable English

Overall, it's a ok hotel if you don't mind travelling from the Rail station.

For those travelling to Switzerland for the first time, Mirgos and COOP are two large supermarket chain found in Switzerland. You can find them in many parts of the country.
