Modern, clean, charming - highly recommend!
In booking the Hotel Bern - despite the solid tripadvisor rating - I tempered my expectations because of the low price and the not-especially-appealing pictures on the hotel's own website. Fortunately, I was very pleasantly surprised at arrival. This is a really lovely hotel with exceptionally helpful staff. The hotel/room decor is modern and sleek - it's well maintained. My room was a good size with two twin beds, a small desk, an armoire (with hanging and shelved sections), and a wall-mounted TV. My bathroom was a little small (but not tiny). More importantly it was very clean. No bath - just a shower without a proper stall (only a shower curtain) which means the water does get onto the rest of the bathroom floor but it drains/dries quickly enough so I didn't find this a problem. The hotel is set back from the street so the rooms are very quiet. The beds quite comfortable. The breakfast offering is fine (nothing special). But overall the hotel is an unbelievable value. I would happily stay here again - even at a much higher price point.
