    Superb

    the reception crew was great

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The hotel staff was very accommodating. The rooms were clean but basic.

    Although the tram runs in front of the hotel, it is quite a distance to the city centre. It is located in the convention area of town which is not remotely interesting.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Great business hotel, right on the tram which in 10 min takes you into Bern, where you can connect to go anywhere in Switzerland. very clean and great staff.

    room carpet was stained, it is not in Bern city center, and there is nothing nearby for sight seeing, but these are easy to get over.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    Hotels in Bern are expensive, really expensive (the Swiss Franc doesn't help). Although not quite cheap, this Novotel is very good - large rooms, good services, good parking - and relatively affordable. It's not central but it's very well connected to city centre by tram (10 minutes).

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Helpful staf, clean rooms, good location, worth the price

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Easy access to the city center both by car and tram the tram stop was directly across from the hotel and the area was very quiet

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Polite and efficient staff. Good value for money (it is Switzerland after all!). Location and transport links to heart of city very good or can walk 20 mins to city or 15 mins to Paul Klee Centre

    Breakfast not included in price and very expensive to buy although basic coffee and croissant available as alternative to full buffet at less than half the cost.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Access to parking was difficult with only 1 elevator going down at that was often full whet it arrived with people from the lobby wanting to ho up to their room. We eventually walked up the ramp outside

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Functional and bright, with convenient garage underneath and plenty of luggage trolleys available. Very convenient for the No.9 tram which reaches the centre ofBern in less than 10 minutes and runs late at night.

    Breakfast overpriced at 25 CHF per head.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel provides free WiFi access (but only at 1f lobby).

    Little bit far from Bern central. But it does not matter so much because a tram station is very near.

    Guest rating

    Location is good not too far away from the exit of motor way

    Room cards did not work out for a few times. Without the card you cannot use thevlife. I was staying aon the 8th floor Very small bath room. The big problem is, handle of the door fell down as I open the door of the shower. Tissue cover was falling out as I toke a piece of paper, no shower cap, no shaver for men Tv automatic switched on during late mid night! Indid not touch the tv at all since I check in.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Excellent beds, bathroom seperate from wc, nice size room, good breakfast, very effective check out, great location.

    To get a good price I paid up front - fair enough. But even so I had already paid before I even checked in the front staff insisted that she took yet another deposit of 100 Swiss Francs "just in case" - very poor customer service in this moment. Also Internet was expensive.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Clean, comfortable, a short walk from the Rose Garden and handy to the bus/tram.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Good service for money. using avance payment method. Good location

    I was expecting to receive panflets in the room. not costly and add great value for people. would be great if they introduce it

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Good location for accessing the Bern expo, clean and functional hotel.

    The hotel is a basic business hotel but not ideal for leisure or visiting the city.
