      It was very good time to stay at the hotel. The personal was very friendly. We can recommend staying at this hotel for business trip and for families with children.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      We had a nice, very quiet room. View was superb on the old roofs of the city, very romantic indeed.

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      helpful staff, central location, good rooms/ breakfast

      don't get rooms on street facing side - services and delivery start at 04.30 local and kept us all awake.only recommend if rooms at back taken - have good view of old part of town

    • Family with children
      5.4

      close to the train station

      Our room was on the street side of the hotel and it was very noisy all night because there is a very popular bar across the street which stays open all night (at least until 4am or so). The staff was polite but not friendly.

    • Family with children
      5.0

      The hotel is close to train station and center of the city

      There is no air conditioner in the room. Shower water drains very slowly, you cannot shower too long, otherwise water will flow to the floor. Bathroom has no hanger to hang cloth. It is expensive consider what it has.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      We marvelled at the multi-tasking the staff was doing - the graveyard shift person on the reception desk was also the one who needed to bring up our requested wind fan. And at breakfast, we observed that the lady at the reception desk was also the one cleaning up the breakfast tables of the guests. Is this just Swiss efficiency? But whatever it is, we compliment them for it.

    • Group of friends

      Its a simple hotel, very well located. Staff were very friendly. It is very noisy on weekends due to numerous bars and restaurants.

      Noise was an issue... Not only on weekends, but also street cleaning started early and was really noisy.

    • Family with children
      4.6

      Only complains, the location is good. Could be good if they charge half or even less.

      We wanted to travel swiss by rail , so we picked Bern as it is in center and we can reach most of the parts of the country in 2 hours. Regarding this hotel we got fooled looking at the picture they put on the web. We went by this picture as most of the hotels we have selected form Booked.net lived to our expectation. However this was a shame as we lived for 8 nights and paid very heavily. We feel that this hotel charges too much and gives very little. We had asked for a 4 bed room , they gave us a crammed room. Also it had a single window on the road which if we kept open as there is no ac or fan. There is so much noise from the road till late night. We cant sleep. We feel cheated

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Very central and in the old town.Staff friendly. Breakfast buffet good.

      Room rather noisy and a little small.

    • Single
      9.6

      Clean, simple rooms with no frills. Ideal for a city break or short stay.

      A little bit noisy in the mornings when near-by guests were getting ready for check-out.

    • Single

      internet not included & way too expensive
