    Convenient location.

    Clerk not on duty when we wanted to check out. When found he initially charged us more than booked amount - but corrected when I complained. Looked for "Fassbind" hotel and found it at "City Hotel".

    Perfect

    It is a perfect location..right across the street from the train and around the corner from the us embassy. The staff was wonderful and the hotel had a wonderful feel..very european...the fifth floor rooms are terrific. On top of that..i left a valuable necklace and it was returned to me. This is a wonderful hotel.

    Staff is OK and speaks correct english.

    Hotel is very noisy because of the old windows and the location in front of the busiest square in Bern (buses, streetcars, loud cars). The hotel room would need serious renovation (painting is quite old).

    Close to train station. Room was quite large by Swiss standards.

    Really basic hotel.Not 3 star. Glad it was our last night as it was very disappointing. Very noisy if room faces onto street. Window didn't close properly which contributed to that problem. Poor lighting, making it quite depressing at night.

    Very good

    Location - close to train station and old city. Clean. Quiet from outside noise.

    Expensive internet and breakfast. Small bed (single), although this was well advertised. Slightly quirky shower. Electrical outlets shut off when light switch is off. A bit noisy from cleaning staff very early in the morning.

    Perfect

    Location was very convenient, near the train station, near the old part of Bern, with easy access to public transportation. There was a restaurant/food market court two doors down which was also convenient.

    Did not use the Internet connection - too expensive.

    Great experience - much better than other hotels in the same vicinity. Reception area looks poor, but room was a pleasant surprize.

    Put coffee in the rooms.

    Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. We asked for a quiet room and were given the one that looked literally on building ventilation system so entire night we had a lot of noise from that plus an anwful smell. Very small, miserable looking rooms, not particularly clean. Awful breakfast. Plus for what it is, very bad value for money.
