                            Excellent location and within walking distance from everything in the city. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Mini-bar was loaded with complimentary items, so much so that we could not take advantage of all in the two days we were there. Valet parking was very efficient. Each time the car was brought around, we were offered complimentary bottled water for our journey. Overall, an a+ on this Hotel. Definitely the best Bern has to offer!!

                            The spa was not completed, at the time of our stay. We were under the impression that the remodeling had been completed. When one considers a price of 650 chf per night, plus 40 chf for parking, a spa is expected. We should have been provided a refund on the value of the spa. Although we do not smoke, for those who do, the smoking/cigar lounge is also not yet available.

                            Perfect location close to the Railway station. The hotel has been renovated recently and everything was in mint condition. The room was spacious and comfortable. The personnel was in general very young and friendly.

                            The price was quite expensive, and didn't include the breakfast. Quite astonishing, I must say. In addition 40 chf for a day's parking is on the heavy side, I believe. The temperature was far too high, and it was impossible to regulate the air condition system for a temperature lower than 20 degrees. In fact however, the temperature appeared considerably higher. Strange and a pity, since it destroyed my sleep. You could of course open a window, but then you would not benefit from the excellent isolation against the noise outside.

                            I mostly liked the good quality of the interior designing, the comfort, the free services included in the room package and the spacious rooms.

                            Should be more flexible with the checkout timings, it is quite common in all the hotels to have late checkout like 2 or 3 pm.

                            Everything!! Location - short walk from the main train station, right in the middle of the shopping district and close to the government buildings. Helpful, efficient, friendly, smiling staff, from the reception team to the chambermaids and even the electrician in the hallway. Fantastic level of maintenance, everything works well, in-room facilities include all one could wish for and all state-of-the art high-tech. Great bath&shower room! Good gym and spa. I was in a De-lux single that was bigger then many doubles I stayed in all over the world. Bottom line - if you can afford it try it. You will not be disappointed.

                            Excelent service, above average even for Swiss standards. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly, rooms are very confortable and clean. Great location, just across the street from the main train station and near main local public transportation system. The sorrounding area is pretty safe even late at night.

                            The breakfast is not bad but a little bit below what I would expect.

                            Superb and modern rooms, hotel was fully renovated in 2012

                            Note very cheap, but the rooms and service were top-notch

                            Nicht gut war die Klimatisation: ausser im Gang hatte ich im ganzen Hotel (v.a. Zimmer, Restaurant) den Eindruck eines kühlen Luftzugs, wodurch ein Aufenthalt schnell unangenehm wurde. Die Lichtschaltung ist schwierig zu bedienen, insbesondere wenn man sie nur benötigt, wenn man um Mitternacht ins Hotelzimmer kommt.

                            First-class hotel; very comfortable, well-decorated, perfect location, and very helpful staff and service.

                            Some lack of clarity about what was and was not included in the room rate - though this was handled well by the staff at checkout.

                            It was one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Really good value for money and a really good supportive staff. When I am in Bern again, would definitely pick thi one again.

                            Nothing much to comment here expect no iron in room!
