Very Good 8.0
Great Location
The hotel is in a great location, within a 5 minute walk to the train station and within walking distance to many of the location attractions/sites. The staff at the desk were very helpful and accommodating, knowledgeable about the different sites to see in Bern. The room was nice and clean, with coffee/tea and bottled water replenished daily. If we’re ever back in Bern, we know where to stay.

All Things Bern
Close to the Swiss Parliament, main train station and many restaurants, this lovely hotel was a great stay. Public transportation was included with the room and was convenient to all the city's attractions. Primo!

Good 6.0
Turns out that only the street side rooms have air conditioning. The courtyard side rooms are quiet but fairly uncomfortable if it’s warm outside.

Construction noise but central location
Construction every morning starting at 7:30am. It was so loud it sounded like someone was drilling through the walls into the room. Impossible to even hear the TV over it. Room was stark with no real amenities. Location and staff were the only good parts.
