Very clean. Close to train station. Friendly and professional staff. No complaints. Just something is missing as a 5 star hotel and can’t quite put my finger on it. Maybe the interior design in the rooms needs a makeover. It looks slightly dated. Also we didn’t have a hairdryer in our room.

This is the perfect base in Bern. The hotel is elegant with service to match. Located across from the train station it’s also super convenient. Would stay here again.

Very nice hotel and sweet staff except they didn’t give us the upgraded room we paid for through Expedia and were sold out of what we reserved but yet they charged us because we prepaid for the room. Also found out after we got there the hotel doesn’t have air conditioning in the rooms and it was very hot and stuffy and hard to sleep. Room had a lot of road noise from the traffic outside as well and not very soundproof. They also didn’t give us credit for the taxes we prepaid for through Expedia. Room service was mediocre in forgetting to daily update body soaps, shampoos and coffee bar with teas and sugar. For the price this hotel charges it’s missing what you pay for but staff is very polite.
