                Efficient check in and out and friendly staff

              • Couple
                6.2

                The car parking was free.

                The swimming pool was very small and the water so cold I couldnt swimm in it. The hotel paying conversion is very bad, they almost charge 1chr equal to 1 euro. The room was quite small. Breakfast very expensive. Definetly not a 4 stars hotel!! I would not return to this hotel.

              • Single
                9.6

                Every thing was excellent. "comfort, clean, facilities, value of money". Specially when compared to other hotels in Bern.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                friendly staff,,,location,,,,value for money

                computer system of the reception may need to be up-dated since there was a confusion in giving the same room to two guests.

              • Family with children
                5.0

                pretty convenient location with easy access to public transport. not too far from down town

                Some of the hotel staff not very friendly especially one male staff in the restaurant. Other cannot communicate very well in English. The bath tub in our room 607 with very high wall making access in and out of the tub difficult even for us and would be more so for the elderly or small children

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                Original and modern room design, comfortable bed. Good price.

              • Single
                6.6

                Location and convenience of the hotel was excellent. The rooms and public areas were clean and functional.

              • Single
                7.8

                Clean, efficient, pleasant, well-designed rooms.

                Increasingly hotels offer wifi as an integral part of the package.You should consider it as its vital for busy people.

              • Family with children
                8.2

                The location was easy to get to and the room was very convenient for us as a family of three, also there was a car park .

              • Couple
                7.0

                Well positioned directly on tram line with free parking. Direct to city centre in 10 minutes. Pool is well maintained but very small.

              • Single
                8.2

                The very comfortable room the good restaurant

              • Single
                10.0

                I liked everything! The hotel has free parking, free wifi, and a reasonable breakfast charge - this ticks all my boxes for business travel. The bonuses were the spa in the basement - a really decent-sized pool and sauna/gym facilities, and then the Japanese restaurant - wonderful. I will stay here every time I come to Bern from now on.

                My only (slight) complaint would be that the pillow & duvet were very thin.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Excellent location, rooms were very nice and comfortable. Hotel staff were very helpfull and friendly and car parking was very secure.

              • Family with children
                6.6

                Breakfast should have been included in the price. The breakfast is fast to expensive - there should be options

              • Couple
                6.6

                Non Smoking room was clearly a smoking room in the past- all of the bedding, shower curtains etc reeked with old cigarette smell it was very strong. Also, bizarrely the towels smelt too. Although it was snowing outside we had to sleep with the window open. It was a real shame- everything else at the hotel was really good. We advised them but weren't offered a discount.
