Great hotel, big rooms, big bathrooms, fantastic breakfast. The only two downsides are room is not well lit so quite dark and one window is not enough and if you are staying in hot months the AC barely works.

Very nice place and convenient, walking distance to train station and old town. I would stay here again

staff was very helpful

Friendly staff. Good-sized, clean room. Super location.

Very close to the train station, easy to find. However, the bed and pillow were not comfortable.

Very convenient location close to train station and sightseeing’s, nice breakfast

The rooms are a bit dated looking and I would have expected more from a 4 star boutique property

Great hotel in an excellent area and just down the street from the Zytglogge. The room was super clean and much bigger than expected. Overall this is a great place and we would revisit.

Very nice hotel ,about five minute walk from train station. Easy walk to old Bern and shopping

Nice hotel; close to train station and city center.

Well located next to downtown Bern and main train station. Old, not very well maintained hotel.

Breakfast was good. The location was great and the welcoming drinks were unexpected.

Its Switzerland, so it's al,expensive. I'd hesitate to call this 4 stars, but it's quite fine in every way, but nothing I'd remember.

I stayed in a lot of hotels in Switzerland at various places, and this one was probably the best for the price. It was very clean and comfortable. It was very convenient to get to from the train station (walking distance easily, even with suitcases) and had a nice view onto the street and roof tops. The only small downside was we had a street room, and it could be a bit noisy at night. Su d carrys very well with the stone street and walls. They also had a very pleasant buffet breakfast.

You have to wonder about a room that comes equipped with ear plugs! It was very very noisy but the breakfast was good, the room is clean and large for a single and the location is fine. Of course, Bern is small to begin with so maybe any location would have been ok. Everything is Switzerland is expensive so the price was probably ok as well. Free wireless would have been nice.

Excellent location, close to all the attractions, short walk to all the restaurants and shopping. A short walk from the train station and very helpful staff.
