    In the center of Bern. Close to everything.

    My room was looking to the platz of the central rail station and window was not isolating very well the noise. Breakfast should be included for this price.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    Large rooms and very convenient to station and town centre

    The price (but that is Switzerland) and lack of character in rooms

  • Single
    8.2

    I would like to give the credit to the Hotel Staff. She was not local but when I asked about places that I could visit in Bern, she has been very helpful to find out information by internet, brochoure or even phone calls.

    No free Wifi.

  • Single

    Very well located in front the the railway station, Good value for money

  • Single

    Charming helpful staff on check-in!

    I specifically booked a non-smoking room, but my room smelt strongly of smoke.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Very good location for rail station and 'old town'.

    I would prefer if there was a room rate which included breakfast. That said it was clearly stated on the web site and by hotel reception that breakfast was extra.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The hotel is very close to the main station and is convenient for a short overnight stay, as in our case.

    There was nothing that we did not like - cleanliness, convenience, comfort and value for money criteria were all met

  • Single
    5.8

    The location

    It's a little noisy, the wall is thin

  • Single
    6.2

    Really close to Bahnhof station. There is restaurant mall in next building.

    Hotel gate sign is not 'Fassbind Hotel City am Bahnhof' but 'City Hotel', so I was a bit confused at first.

  • Single
    7.4

    Just opposite of train mainstation in city centre.

    Typical Switzerland charme: Oldfashioned but solid.

  • Single
    5.8

    Great location for access to the train station and the Old town. The reception staff were always friendly and helpful, and the room was cleaned well each day, (although the duvet underneath the clean sheets was a bit nasty).

    The room walls seemed very thin, and you could hear people in the other rooms all the time. I had a room on the main street side, which was also quite loud at night. Absolutely no facilities, the bed was pretty bad, breakfast costs extra, and frankly for the money it costs per night, it should have been a lot better. Having said that I've stayed in several Bern hotels now, and whilst I love the city and Switzerland, it is always way overpriced for what you get - even when using the bookings.com discounts!

  • Couple
    7.4

    Great location in walking distance from the train station. Our big room was decent looking and clean. Quiet (our room was to the back).

    Ridiculously expensive Internet and breakfast. Too many smoking rooms and no guarantee for a non-smoking room at booking time (not surprising in what seems to be the smoking capital of Switzerland).

  • Family with children
    4.6

    Only plus point of this hotel was, it was close to the train station.

    It was extremely noisy, no AC, and very uncomfortable. Be aware, only stay at this hotel if you are catching an early morning train and you want the station to be within a walking distance. Could not open window as it was very noisy. Closed the window and got baked, could not sleep the whole night.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    very near to Bahnhof;big room

    the window is facing the big street, so it's a little noisy

  • Single
    6.2

    I stayed at the hotel during two raining days. In my room 6th floor there was strong, dew, nauseating smell that gave me at night a strong headache. At 01.00 am the helpful hotel employ went with me through 6 empty rooms and we finally found another room without the problem. The 5 other rooms were equally smelly. Otherwise the hotel was acceptable but this problem depressed me.
