The location is brilliant! It's just 10 min walk from the train station. All the attractions and restaurants of Bern are within walking distance. The staff is quite attentive. The rooms are spatious, and the view from the room is good. It was quet and clean there. There were technical problems with the TV receiver, which were not solved within 3 days of our stay there.
This hotel merits its 5 star rating with top-notch staff, beautiful accommodations with lovely lake views and excellent location within easy walking distance of most major attractions. The cost of the breakfast buffet is very expensive. Finding a place for a reasonably priced breakfast in the area was difficult.
The view from the terrace was really excellent and the room was worthy of 5-star. The location was unbeatable. I got the special offer which was reasonable and made me happy. But, I cannot afford the normal price.
view from the room
We loved the view from our room, the quietness of the place, the room was spacious and tastefully arranged, the location is excellent, staff was extremely nice Not enough shampoo, bath gel and body lotion
very comfortable luxurious hotel with easy access to the old town Bern.
service, style, class, location
The restaurant is wonderful. The concierge most helpful. A beautiful building, great view of the Alps It is not your fault. Switzerland is very expensive for us from the US
The room and the view of Bern from the room was beautyfull The TV was without audio and the jet of water in the bathroom was poor. But probably is it not so normally.
Friendly staff , spacious rooms , beautiful design. late breakfast, close to every point in the city missed a jaquzzi for relaxing after a long walk......
Central location. Room was modern, clean and comfortable. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Amazingly good free facilities which was a nice surprise (games room, internet room, tea/coffee room, tv room, fitness room, rooftop terrace).
Convenient, clean, recommendable
Very good reception arriving after midnight.Good beds and breakfast and very central location The bar closing on Sunday, automatic beverage boxes out of order.
Very nice and clean place! Good location right in the heart of the old town!
Clean, near the station，the breakfast is good No wifi in the room
Free use of the internet/central location Room extremely small for a single room but comfortable.
location right in the center of the city fairly small rooms, facilities
Location and helpfulness of staff. General feel of the room was very disappointing. Difficult to think of this as a three star. Coffee machine had no water.
Our room had a balcony, had on-site washer and dryer, breakfast was good and the breakfast staff friendly. No air conditioning so we left the window open at night and we awakened by street construction/trash collection noise early in the morning. The laundry on site is great but is only one person at a time and if someone leaves their stuff then no one can use the washer/dryer so you have to wait around.
Very conveniently located to the train station. Good breakfast. The beds were terrible--the linens were rough. The room was sterile, with no character.
I myself am in the hospitality sector, and my expectaions on a hotel on one of the main streets of Bern were the "regular touristic stuff", however the two concierges I dealt with, the front desk personel and the rest of the staff were more than friendly and helpful all the time.. For example, when we went to have breakfast 5 minutes after the buffet was supposed to close they did all for us to enjoy our teas ans latte capuccini as well as the full buffet (excellent pancakes and also the parmiggianio was great).
Proximity (5-10 mins walk) to all major Old Town attractions, shopping and transport as well as charming attempt at the true Belle Epoque style felt throughout the hotel and the rooms. Also a bowl of fruit and a welcome hand-written note from the owners was a nice touch. There is a nice and relaxed restaurant on the ground floor/terrace level which is very pleasant for a quiet coffee in the morning or late dinner/drinks in the evening. It is a boutique-style Old Town hotel but it does feel a little "tired" and is edging more towards the 3* rather than 4* hotel. Facilities are very basic, as is a very expensive (CFR 21) buffet breakfast and room cleaning service leaves a lot to be desired for. Room prices are comparable to other 4*-5* hotels in Bern but offer very poor value for money.
The Sunday evening concert
upon arrival they had a very nice and amusing jazz concert...good music and very nice "ambiance"...
I enjoyed the good service and the friendly staff. However, the hotel is quite small with smallish rooms and a small stairway. The lift was useful to get the luggage up. The double glazed windows were needed to keep the street noise down. The room air became stuffy overnight. I liked the Art Deco room decor. Breakfast was expensive, but so was everything in Switzerland.
The staff was very friendly & they upgraded us to a suite which was lovely
everything - Actually, we think you have under-rated the hotel in your website. it is fantastic and the staff are all very friendly, welcoming and very helpful. Hotel has great ambiance and location is great!!!
Wireless LAN The rooms I was in was a bit oldfashioned, and not suited for the business traveller (very small table to work on)
Really nice place, extremely kind staff.
Friendly staff and good location Only one person of staff was working at reception and restaurant (at the same time)
I had visited the hotel in the 90s when it was a bijoux of beautiful original art nouveau antiques. Now it is ugly and full of second rate flea market objects. What a disappointment!
the location there was no free internet in the room though the web page said so :(
Excellent location, modern design
The staff was very friendly, helpful and understanding. The bathroom was beautiful. My room was a bit small.
Outstanding welcome from reception and follow-up from owner. No
Service was curtious Bed were very hard, bathroon was limiting, locaiton was not the best
.Hotle location excellent for historic part of city Room was tiny and bed very uncomfortable. Breakfast was very basic and more than disappointing
Free computer/internet room. Room very small - more of a cabin with "flat pack" bathroom built in recently.
The hotel is perfectly situated in the centre of the old town, and three minutes walk from the famous clock. The pillows on the bed were not good, and the mattress was hard.
The location was very good and the staff friendly and helpful The room was far too small and was poor value for CHF 175
complementary airport shuttle and complementary luggage storage was great limited access to free internet and the high cost for pay access was disappointing
