Customer Reviews

Partnership with



Very good, I really appreciate everything, rooms, services, people, the fact to have a local transport for free, the fact that it is very near to tram station, the breakfast, the employees... I recommend it



Excellent staff, well thought rooms where everything fits, even design and a large shower, despite the small size. Very practical to go to the city center in just a few minutes, since tramway 9 is just in front of the hotel. Only regret, that there are not amenities to make a tea/ coffee in the room.



The hotel is across the street from the Bern Expo grounds. Great facility and easy access to the tram line. 5 minutes from downtown. top service from staff. a great hotel to stay at when visiting Bern.

Despite the lobby being a bit unsightly, the service was excellent, the hotel receptionist very friendly and helpful. Despite this, the rooms were very clean, bathroom clean and the airco was a welcome relief because it was very hot during my stay. Don't let the exterior and the lobby fool you. Its a good hotel



Our stay at Bern Ibis has been great! Ambience was good and the room was very spacious. It is easily accessible with public transport. Also provides good view of the scenic beauty of mountains.... Value for money!



We stayed in four Ibis along our road trip and this one was the only bad one. They advertise AC but told us it only blows room temperature air due to the Swiss green laws. They told us to open our window if we were too hot, eventhough a sticker on the window asks you to leave it shut to keep the bugs out. We opened our window as we were told to do and the room ended up smelling like manure due to the horse riding equestrian center next to us. Our dog was awake most of the night due to the smells and so were we due to the heat and uncomfortable bed and very itchy sheets (I'm assuming due to the type of washing powder). Costumer service was average, the only helpful and nice person was the lady with long black hair and dark complexion at check in, she was great.



This hotel is a budget hotel. The room is very sparse and the amenties are basic at best. I would suggest that if you enjoy staying a hostel then this hotel is more than adequate. While I understand the hotel is basic and have little complaints about the room. I must admit to being frustrated that an iron, ironing board, face cloth and clock are not available. Also the heating system did not function in the room. So if you are a business traveller I would recommend a different hotel. Of note the staff seem to be very cavalier and when asking about an iron stated they only had two and didn't know when these would return from other guests. In the end I will probably never book with IBIS again unless I am forced to do so because of the high cost of other hotels in the area. Clearly Switzerland is a different kettle of fish hence my choice.



Very well located, nice staff, simple but good meal (as it is used to be in all ibis chain), fair price, nice internet service. The only issue was with the bath amenities, it run out. Even though I recommend this hotel.



Low quality/service IBIS hotel. Good if you attend an event at Bern Expo, but overpriced for being an IBIS. Far from the center but good connection through public transportation. Service/Staff in the Swiss average = correct but not friendly, kind-of helpful but cold and not welcoming.



The rooms seem visually quite outdated (design of 90´s standards), lobby went through remodeling and looks more fresh. Only setback was small lounge for breakfasts, so it was hard to find a seat (Sunday 31.8.2014). Otherwise a pleasant stay, the staff was very helpful

I stayed just one night with my family. It was really big size room for family. I assume Swiss quality is much higher than France. In fact, it was even better than France Novotel. Only reception was poor that has just two desks. Friendly staff and hospitality.

- Poor value considering it is in the same buildign as the ibis budget, which has higher rooms with a great view of the mountains. - Poor sleep quality as our room was noisy - the wastewater pipe must have been next to us which meant a big noise and then runnig water for 15 seconds, repeated every minute throughout the night.



Room was quite large (I stayed at triple room). Bed was good, but I think the pillow was to soft. Good size bathroom. Location is about 10 minutes by tram from city centre and tram came every 5-10 minutes. Close to shopping centre (5-10 minutes walk). Didn't try breakfast. Wi-fi was good. Very quick and efficient check in (they already prepared my room card & transport coupon). Receptionist staff was great.

Friendly staff, relatively clean, good location - 15 minute walk to the center and they provide free tram pass in case you want to take public transportation. One drawback - parking. Very expensive (20 CHF per night) parking considering it's not in residential or busy area. Also, you can't even enter the parking to unload and bring thing up the things to the room without paying for at least an hour (5 CHF).

Close to public transport. Liked use of tram pass. Missed a room safe and tea and coffee making facilities. Room was very clean. On arrival noticed toilet seat was cracked. Advised reception - seat was replaced.



Not an interesting area but good tram service to the centre. Helpful staff and a good breakfast. Some reasonable restaurants 10 minutes walk away. Car parking unreasonably expensive for an out of town location.

Joao Ricardo T


Tram stop right in front of the hotel. Very helpfull staff. Rooms are small but very clean. Staff helped us with city guide and which were the points of interest. Bern is such a very beautiful city with some great places to visit.

Hansen, D


Friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, great views of the mountains, and easy access by foot or tram to city centre of Bern. As I was attending an event at the EXPO, you could not be nearer - perfect location.



The hotel is away from the historic town centre, but obviously very handy for the expo centre. It's not easy to drive there, because of the one way streets and no right turns that jump up at the last minute. Car parking is not cheap - 20 CHF a night - and I wish they would tell you this on the hotel booking page. Once parked, you can use the tram or bus from across the road to access the Swiss travel system. It's a long way from the Wankdorf station to the hotel, and we found it was as quick to take the tram to the Hauptbahnhof as it was to mess around with Wankdorf. You could walk to the edge of the old town in just under half an hour. The hotel is a very fresh Ibis. The breakfast area is not very large, and the menu was quite limited, a poor choice of cereals, no teapots and only UHT milk. The bread could have been fresher and it would have been nice to have had a more cheerful waitress on duty. As is usual with an Ibis, the bar staff double as front desk - and bar service is a little lack lustre. A welcome drink voucher was non negotiable, if you didn't want a beer or soda, there was no chance of an upgrade, even if you wanted to pay the difference. Service at the front desk was friendly and helpful - but the hotel seems to attract coach loads of visitors all of whom seem to take hours to transact even the shortest visit, so check in and out can be lengthy.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, check in and check out went smootly and efficiently. The room was quiet and the bed really comfortable - perfect conditions for sleeping well. The bathroom space is well organized and I liked the fact that it was so clean. The same is true of the wardrobe. All in all the experience was very good.
