Very basic hotel with a very good location - not far from the train station. There is no breakfast, they offer beverages and a spacious room to bring your own breakfast to. The room was fairly big. The tv was mounted high upon the wall and very small. The room was clean however there were holes on the sheets. Luckily...

Switzerland is a very expensive place as we all know, thus a hotel in the centre of Bern for 110 CHF is fair enough. It was scrupulously clean, of course, smallish single room, a small shower towel as well. Did not try the TV, but very few stations. The only complaint is that it is BYOB meaning bring your own...

The location of this hotel is wonderful! Right in the heart of the old town! In my experience, Continental is a fairly basic accommodation, no frills, clean rooms, comfortable beds, no breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff were happy to lend us an iron and ironing board as well as a swiss electrical adapter. There is Wi Fi available at a...

Excellent location, but not good value for your money. Make sure to arrive before 7pm at night, otherwise there will be no one to help you... We stayed in a coner room, which was twice the size of the room our friends stayed in just next to us... Very old hotel, but at least the rooms were clean. The WiFi...

Very good location; in the centre of Bern but didn't find it at all noisy. The room itself was quite big, but the corridor going from the hotel door into the bedroom was so narrow it was difficult to walk through! The shower was powerful but the cubicle was quite small, as was the bathroom. The best thing about the...

Stayed one night. Convenient location in the centre of old town. But we were travelling by car and there is no parking available in the centre so we had to pay for the underground car park, it was 40 Swiss Francs overnight and we also parked briefly during the day so another 10 francs, so I think an hotel with...

The hotel is very well located in the old town area. The room was nice, though the bathroom quite old. It's extremely noisy. I only stayed for one night and it was ok. Cleaness is also ok, it's not spotless. No more to say about this hotel..it was ok for only one night i would't have stayed longer.

This was a budget stay (but still pricey for the money by Aussie standards...that's Switzerland for you)! However its in the Old Town and made it easy to walk to the historical-touristy places and only 10 mins walk from the railway station. The room was acceptable and had all the facilities required, although on the smallish side. The heater outlet...

Overall, its just ok. Its a good price to be in the heart of bern, so no complaints. Hotel rooms are a little run down and could use some refurbishment. Wifi is not free which is a tad bit surprising since we are in 2012 now! But ok - for this price, u cannot get other hotels, so value for...

I had to stay in Bern for one night in November, and chose Hotel Continental due to its location and fairly low accommodation rates for the area. The room and facilities were clean though very basic. No free wi-fi. The reception staff were friendly and very helpful. However, they do close between 10pm-7am. We were there to see a concert,...

“Try and get a room away from the street. Every morning about 6am, there is a lot of noise, sounding like metal cans being tossed around and it goes on for an hour or so intermittently. I was told it was deliveries being made to the Migros supermarket. There were also sounds of party revelers in the early hours of the morning but this didn't last long. The window can be opened to cool the room down.”
