    Exceptional

    Location - central in Bern and near railway station. Asked for quiet room and was given one. Rooftop terrace providing view of city rooftops and view of mountains. Gym. Free tea and coffee making facilities in a communal area. Free internet in another communal area. Everything I was looking for and more.

    Very good

    Priced competitively in the expensive Swiss capital, rooms very clean and well appointed, good facilities including activities, gym and rooftop deck. Staff were very helpful and happily changed us to a larger family room after accidentally giving us a double initially.

    It was a bit noisy on the weekend at night time...nightclub noise 3am...rooms could do with a fridge and wi fi wasn't free as it is in most other hotels

    Very good

    Conveniently located, within walking distance to most of the tourist attractions. Meticulously clean.

    Noisy neighborhood (some “mad Max” youngsters celebrated midweek "who knows what" till 4:00 AM). Our attic room was small with no real windows and view to the street.

    Very good

    Excellent hotel. Pity that wireless internet is not free there. There is a DSL-cable in a small hot room on the third floor though. Breakfast on Saturday until 10 o'clock was a bit early for us.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    Nice location. Free internet in the hallway, but only 3 plugs available and thus often very busy.

    The bathroom could use some more light. Free (or cheaper) internet in the room would be appreciated. There is some parking space in front of the hotel for unloading, but this was mostly occupied by parked cars. Some discount for the parking garages in the centre would be appreciated as well.

    Good location, nice rooms but small, good facilities, comfortable bed, quiet. Staff at breakfast was excellent.

    Breakfast was lacking compared to other hotels in this price range.

    hotel is close to central and many restraurant places.

    there is no free wifi and free internet service is just two in the business center.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The hotel was in an excellent location - close to the train station, restaurants, shopping and sites in the historical city. I had a double room on the third floor with a balcony looking out onto the plaza - fabulous for sitting an reading on a sunny afternoon. The hotel includes public rooms, including a free internet room, tea/coffee room, a few pieces of exercise equipment, a sitting room and a roof top terrace - this is not usual in a lot of European hotels in which I've stayed. The breakfast had a good range and selection. I was visiting Bern as part of a group from several different countries who stayed in different hotels. The hotels in Bern all seemed expensive compared to Zurich, but the Hotel Kreuz was relatively good value compared to other hotels in Bern. I stay here again.

    The mattresses were firm and the pillows very soft. My double bed was two single wooden frames pushed together - however, I stayed with friends in Switzerland at their family chalet - and the bed was exactly the same set up, even made the same way. So it would seem that this was just cultural. I had to pay for wireless access - the rates were expensive, but it was a sliding scale so an hour was hideous, 3 hours was 15CHF and 30hours for 45CHF. I bought the 3 hour card, but it lasted me a few days as I was able to log in, download my email and then work offline, before logging in again to send.

    Good

    Room facing the main square is extremely noisy, with the church bell and people being loud on the street during the night. Room did not have any aircondition so we had to keep the window opened.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The buffet breakfast and hot shower were excellent.

    No free Wi-Fi in the hotel rooms and no chairs in the business room. Also the bed was very small.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Good location, near to train station (easy to find), 2 doors away to a supermarket (very convenient). Near to key shopping area (just don't go on a Sun as all shops are closed) and restaurants.

    Quite costly for such a basic hotel.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Bern is a beautiful city and this hotel is ideally suited to access all points of interest by foot. It is about a 5 minute walk from the train station, and thus gives access to the Swiss Alps area also. Room was a good size.

    We would have liked a small frig in the room. There is a free coffee and tea station within the hotel but a kettle in the room would be nice.
