Do not get fooled by the pictures, the rooms are neither large nor romantic. Do not select standard rooms over economy rooms, the extra money does not give you anything more as the hotel is unable to explain in an understandable way what you get for the extra money. I asked to be shown an economy room to compare it...

Convenient place - close to the railway station. Close to many restaurants. Staff at the reception were really helpful and friendly. The hotel has an antique look. The rooms were nice and clean. Value for money. Could not try the meals, but the menu was really tempting. My friends said that it takes a bit of time for the meals...

Basic no chill gloomy hotel. You barely feel welcome. To be booked for one night max before or after a meeting. It's sad because they really could do something about the general ambiance. But I guess compared with Cortez hotel from AHS...it's not that bad after all.

Switzerland is an expensive place. I would say this hotel is reasonably priced. Location is really good, just a few minutes walk from train station. Tram stop is only a stop away. We stayed here for two occasions. We got the ensuite bathroom on both stays. Though the bathroom is small, it's enough. Hot water is powerful and refreshing. Room...

I enjoyed the meals here, nothing too special but enjoyable enough. The service at the restaurant fast and professional, I felt most at home. The rooms are basically ok, however cleaning service not the best in times of timeliness though. It is located at a very convenient place, near the train station, walking distance to the center of the town...

If you don't have the money to stay in a better place, this is the ideal value for money hotel. You will get depressed looking at the inside & outside of the room. Nothing more to say. But tripadvisor wants me to type atleast 200 characters.

Stayed here for one night, and really enjoyed it. Great location, only 5 minutes walk from train station. Very easy to get around Bern, loved walking through the old town. Hotel was nice; check-in was not very effective. Tried to check in early, though they said I couldn't, so come back at 3. Not a problem - I understand not...

Arriving at the hotel, the people where very friendly and uncomplicated. The house is old but very clean and expresses a lot of charm! Our room was very small and so was the bath as well. As it was very hot and there is no a/c, it was hard to sleep even with open windows. The room itself was very...

Stayed at Hotel National for one night this week. Found it to be better than expected. Clean, friendly staff, perfectly located, reasonably good value for money by Swiss standards. Room was a little small, and a little noisy with the balcony door open. Wouldn't have been a problem but for the lack of air con or fan. Wifi pretty good....

This was a really nice hotel in a good location 5 minutes from the train station. The room we had was large, the shower was powerful and there was always plenty of hot water. Unfortunatly though we were on the first floor at the front and the noise from the trams was very loud, they didn't stop till late at...
