Hotel Continental Bern
Ranked #27 of 30 Hotels in Bern
Reviewed 11 August 2013

I chose this hotel because it is the one near the train station but almost the cheapest (CHF140). Most of the hotels in Bern city are expensive than other cities in Swiss. I wonder if it is because Bern is the capital?!

There is no air-con, no fan, no fridge, no breakfast, no free wifi (need to pay). We open the windows but there is VERY loud street noise (U can hear every word clearly!). Perhaps our room was on the main road. The room size is okay and clean but the TV is pretty old. We couldn't find spare plugs available inside the room, so we need to plug out the room lamp to charge our phone and camera.

Beware that there is no staff after 10pm. If you will check in late, they will leave everything you need in the reception. Besides, remember to bring with the password (hotel will provide) if you will back to the hotel late. Otherwise, you need to wait until someone opens the door for you.

The hotel location is convenient, a Coop is just next to the hotel, 3-5mins to the famous clock tower and other attractions. The staffs are friendly.

Room Tip: You could choose this hotel if you have limited budget. But if you are able to pay more, choose anot...

Located in the heart of Old Town Bern, great spot as close to everything. Large room & bathroom. Bathroom spacious and clean. No free wifi, but you can pay if you wish. Enjoyed our stay here would definitely go back. Has all the basics.

The room is clean but rather stuffy during summer. There is no A/C and fan in the room. Tried to open the window for ventilation but it's too noisy outside. The pillow is too soft for my comfort. Note that there is no coffee/tea making facilities in the room, meaning that you can't boil water as well. The room has a "hospital" smell that I dislike whenever I walked in the room. I will not stay here again on my next trip. Nevertheless, I must give credits to the staff as they are friendly, honest and helpful.

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 I brought ear plugs and they were needed as delivery trucks begin delivering goods to neighbouring stores around 5 in the morning with incredible noise. Friendly staff. Please note that there is no staff before seven in the morning and after 10 in the evening. Smoking and non-smoking rooms can be found side by side and I had asked for a non-smoking room, nevertheless I could smell smoke from the room next to mine.
