                7.8

                The outside of the hotel is beautiful. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

                Rooms are clean and modern but a bit tacky given the character of the outside of the hotel. Seems a bit cheap.

              • Single
                9.2

                Good location. Modern room decoration. Free and fast internet by laptop cable. Quiet room on inner courtyard.

                No free Wifi (but free cable internet though) Bed a bit too hard.

              • Older travelers

                Central location. Nearby clock tower bells kept me up though.

              • Single
                5.4

                Location very convienent.

                Smoking in non-smoking room and the expensive breakfast that is not included in the already high price

              • Single
                6.2

                Hard to find the place,so so serves and detail of interior design is inconviorner,the worst issue is no heat during the night in the room,and give some ridiculous excuses said the heating system will automatically working while temperature is too low.

              • Single
                9.2

                Hotel Bern is very well located, a short walk from the train station and in the very heart of the old city. My room was a single room and located on the inside light well so it was very quiet, but had no view. The bed was very comfortable and the room was small but very functional.

                The hotel provides free wired (ethernet) internet access in each room, but it is quite slow and only useful to manage e-mail but not for any level of download/upload. So opted to pay extra for the wireless public access network (Swisscom) which was very fast and useful.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Location excellent, staff helpful, breakfasts good.

                Very tiny space, bed hard as rocks.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                Well situated, comfortable mid range hotel. Helpful staff.

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                great location. liked my room with a view on roof tops and peek to the mountains. friendly staff at reception. clean room.

                bed not all that comfortable. breakfast nice, but best to avoid rush hours if you don't want to wait a long time for the dishes to be refilled.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                Good location, quiet street but walking distance from sights, station and restaurants, clean, functional

                Rooms have no airco, we had to leave windows open which made it comfortable, but we could then hear noises from the street and church bells so not as quiet as we would have liked it at night.

              • Single
                9.2

                Friendly and efficient staff, excellent standard of cleaning - and the bowls of fruit by the lifts on each floor!

              • Single
                7.4

                Typical clean, well organized Swiss hotel

                The hotel was overpriced, even by Swiss standards.

              • Single
                4.6

                The location of the hotel is really good, staff is very nice and efficient

                The hotel feels like a prison. Rooms are small, hot, there is no airco. You don't get any value for your money.

              • Family with children
                7.8

                Best location, large and clean room, friendly staff.

              • Couple
                5.4

                The hotel has a great location, right in the middle of the old town of Bern.

                The hotel is quite poor as regards the design of the rooms and mostly of the restaurant where they served breakfast. We got a really small room, with a courtyard view, where I was not able to move, because it was that small. Basically, after openning the door of the room, you would get right into the bed and that was the entire room. Another misfortunate thing, was the fact that after changing the booking for this hotel, I did not see that the price for the room has changed, becoming almost double, which was terrible, having in view that the room was horrible. It was the most expensive hotel I have ever stayed in and as well the worst. Very poor value for money.
