    Close to the train station and center, great breakfast.

    The room is spartan, the room itself is very small.

    Breakfast was good. Close to the railway station.

    This was a very basic hotel. Not value for money. The worst hotel I have stayed at for this price. But that may be the cost level in Switzerland.

    Close to city cerntre and train station. I have to say it is really location. The room was very warm. Did not use the share shower room, but I looks like clean. The bed is comfotable.

    I stayed in a single room. The room is very very small, like a bathroom. That was I felt when I open the door. If you only stay one night, i'd like to recommend with this kind of price.

    Great

    Excellent location, 5 minutes on foot to the central station and 10-15 to the Federal Parliament Square. There is also a bus and tram stop just in front of the hotel, if you want to use the excellent transportation system of the city. Comfort and cleaning are really good for a two stars hotel. There's also wi-fi available in rooms. The hotel staff is kind and friendly. It has a restaurant, if you don't want to get out of the hotel by night.

    Perfect

    It was near easy to access transportation to and from my meetings. It was very convenient to the train station so that my husband had easy access to day trips to other cities and exploring Bern, itself, via bus. It was within easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The breakfast provided with the room was entirely adequate start to the day; coffee was excellent.

    The noise of the buses and trains could be detrimental to some traveler's rest. It did not bother my husband and myself as much as the noisy people enjoying the restaurant directly below our windows.

    Tradition feel to the hotel with old-fashioned lift and spacious reception. Excellent location very close to train station and walking distance to old town. Lots of personality in the style of the hotel decor - either old or modern room decor. Tv in room.

    Our room was quite small with limited storage. Somewhat noisy as we had a corner room suggesting thin walls.

    Friendly staff.

    It was quite noisy in the family room from the trams running outside (until 1am). The room could benefit from double glazing. The bathroom could do with being updated. The units, including the shower and toilet seat were a bit fragile.

    Good location, nice big windows, clean, our room was pretty good in size (but they also have really small rooms which we rejected); hotel staffs are friendly. Its no luxury from any angle but its worth the money we paid.

    Nice

    Hotels in Bern are expensive, and this being one of the more affordable and reasonable, plus given that it is near to the train station.

    Nothing much except that the WiFi is login and password specific and it has to be logged in for each usage, and it gets disconnected if there is no activity after a while, making it rather troublesome.

    Perfect

    Hotel National Bern was in a great location: close to the train station, downtown and very convenient. The rooms were extremely clean, the beds were wonderfully comfortable and we enjoyed the old-fashioned decor. It made our first trip to historic Bern perfect! The breakfast was great as well.

    The single rooms are small but great, with a wash bin inside. Free wi-fi and breakfast was a huge bonus. Hotel walking distance to train and city center. Staff was amazing. Had early train ride-- night man checked to make sure I was up, and had coffee for me. Lovely place!!

    The staff were very helpful and friendly and the facilities were spotlessly clean. Good that there was free wifi too.

    Room was very small and not enough clothes hangers on rail in bedroom.

    Walking distance to train station, old part of the city, the Aare, and museums

    The 100 yr. Old elevator for the 5-story hotel only reached the 4th floor. We thought we had booked a room with its own bathroom but we wound up with a shared bath. Not sure why. Turned up not to be a problem, though
