        Its in a great location, in the heart of the city, very close to the station (400m).

        Being in the center means that the hotel is not exactly in the cleanest area. Secondly, the signs are a bit poor, its easy to not find the entrance, and thats something they could fix easily. Third, although it looked clean, the bed cover, the pillow, etc, seemed quite dated, and to me those are the things that really need to be fresh and crisp every time, regardless of how modern or old the place is. The room was very clean, no questions there.

        The staffs are kind. The hotel is near from the station, about 200m.

        In our small room there's no aircondition, it was terrybly hot . But we could not open windows because out side of our room is the market place, and even during night it was terribly noisy by people's and passing train. We never stay here even if price is fair.

        Very clean, modern and sweet hotel. Right in the middle of the old town and short walk from the train station. We had an adorable attic room with nice views of the city downtown rooflines. There is a grocery (coop) just next door to gather a few things for the day too.

        A bit more expensive, but traveling in switzerland is costly in general.

        The location of the hotel is fantastic - right in the middle of the city. Rooms were clean and well arranged. Bed was comfortable. Staff extremely helpful, friendly and efficient.

        The buffet breakfast was awful! For some reason the scrambled eggs were in a container filled with liquid - probably due to eggs being overcooked. Bacon came with bone or cartilage bits, making it quite unpleasant. Despite being the Switzerland, some of the cheese was truly disgusting, may have been a little off. Pillows were too soft. If you're a light sleeper, be aware that there are church bells nearby which ring hourly, even at night, and can be quite loud if the room window is left open.

        It was very convenient to the centre of Bern, and I could walk to my conference venue through the beautiful old town.

        I got a last minute deal for my single room which made it affordable, the full price of 290chf per night would be too much for this room.

        There was a problem with the chip reader of the POS terminal (no problem with the same cards in other hotels after that) and I had to pay in cash.

        Great location in the center of town

        The rooms are quite basic. But as its a 3 star hotel, it is expected

        Great roof top patio with views of Bern. Check in was prompt.

        We had an early morning train and decided to try our luck to see if we could get a croissant to go. We were 10 minutes early for breakfast. Clearly the woman serving breakfast had gotten up on the wrong side of the bed as she refused to let us have a croissant even though they were right in front of us.
