Decent facility at excellent location. With the complementary city transport card, Route 9 tram takes you anywhere in Bern or you can walk across the bridge in front of the hotel to arrive at the center of the old town.

Great location, near train station, walking distance to shops and restaurants. Good breakfast buffet. Nice, clean and spacious rooms. Overall. it’s an excellent hotel, highly recommended.

Given the high price of this hotel, expectations were perhaps set on something special in terms of hotel experience, which this hotel did not deliver at all on. It starts with the location, across the bridge from the actual action. This is not a big deal, but still notable. The next point was that there was quite a wait both at check-in and check-out. They only have two small main counters and a line can easily form. Also when you call the reception from the room, you might be asked by an automated system to wait for some call back. Once inside the room, one notices first that the "panorama view" is really at the very horizon, once you step on the balcony, thus perhaps a bit oversold. In the bathroom the shower fixture was loose and water pressure was fairly low. On the upside, the breakfast was good. However, be careful that the O booking site does not include the breakfast, so in fact, the same room will be cheaper on the hotel website. Overall, though I would not recommend this hotel at all, especially because the staff was not particularly helpful.

Excellent location. Great for business or leisure travel.

Small beds but is very near to the train station you can walk whith your lougage and all the time are buses in the front of the hotel to go to the center in 2 or 3 minutes

Great location in the middle of everything, with no outside noise (some random noise occasionally from hotel renovations). High quality hotel although a bit pricey. Great rooms.

Excellent hotel and location; we traveled to Berne via train and took the tram from the train station to the hotel -- everything was just as the hotel website described it. Hotel is within easy walking distance to the city old town for shopping, dining and sight seeing.
